That’s right you heard it. What many industry insiders have been saying for a while now and so far have been proven wrong, looks like it may well be happening after all. According to many publications and internet sources including IGN and Game Informer, Nintendo will be revealing the Wii 2 at this year’s E3 in June. It will apparently be supporting HD formats and resolutions and is capable of out performing both the Xbox 360 and the PS3. It will also feature a completely new controller, not a remodeled wii remote, possible incorporating a screen. Reports also say that Nintendo will make an official announcement of the unveiling later this month. So with this news hot on the heels of the 3DS launch, are Nintendo abandoning the casual market and going after the hardcore gamers again? If so can they do it and how will it affect them financially?
