Rumors about the specifications aside, all that got confirmed is that Nintendo is working on a new console to be released in 2012. However the memo’s released by Nintendo have one little paragraph that sent my heart racing: “We will show a playable model of the new system and announce specifications at the E3 Expo [...] June 7-9, 2011.”
That’s all we’ve got for now. So I guess the proverbial cat is only halfway out of the bag. I can’t wait for Nintendo’s press conference so we can finally see the thing in action and hear more about the rumored 3rd party support its gaining.
