    Nintendo Confirms New Console

    OSAKA, JAPAN—Nintendo Co Ltd said it would launch a successor to its ageing Wii game console in 2012 as it struggles to win back users from rivals Microsoft and Sony and seeks to reverse a slump in profits.

    The maker of the DS handheld game player, which is also facing competition from smartphone and tablet makers including Apple Inc , said on Monday it will demonstrate the Wii's replacement in Los Angeles on June 7 at the E3 game show.

    "As for the details of exactly what it will be, we have decided that it is best to let people experience it for themselves at E3," Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata, told a news conference.

    "So I won't talk about specific details today, but it will offer a new way of playing games within the home," said Iwata, a former game designer

    probably motion sensored, like the Kinect.

    It's a wii with 360/ps3 gfx.

    Nothing special.

    I heard that other companies are targeting 2014 for new consoles

    I think that Nintendo is jumping the gun a little too early. It's nice that they're trying to get ahead and put out a new console, but this also gives its competitors, Sony and Microsoft an opportunity to figure out the console's characteristics and come up with features that it doesn't have for their new respective consoles.
