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?
Plus Michael Pachter can finally say I told you so!
Do you remember the fairly terrible Mortal Kombat movies? Wish you didn’t? Well it looks like there might be a brighter future for the live-action world of MK.
Those in the know might have caught a little short around the time of E3 last year called Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, starring Michael Jai White as Jax and Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade. The short painted a picture of just how potentially awesome a live-action MK could be, with appearances from Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Baraka, Reptile and Sub Zero as well, all set within a somewhat more realistic world (if that can really apply to anything Mortal Kombat).
