"...the console is significantly more powerful than the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and that Nintendo's intent is to recapture the hardcore market. Another source said it is capable of 1080p resolutions.

Nintendo is reportedly showing the console to publishers to garner interest for a late 2012 launch."

1-I can't wait to see it. Hopefully it will be compatible with Wii games

Also games may also cost as much as the Xbox and Ps3 games

Something strong than the xbox 360 yes! Microsoft is going to release a new Xbox mabye 2015 (read on gamespot)

2-that may draw a lot of attention to third party developers.

I hope it doesn't push up the price too much.  Granted, Nintendo's usually been good with that, and that's probably the reason the Wii doesn't have that sort of hardware, but still.

Here's the thing with this - with IGN, GameInformer, and Kotaku all reading this, it's likely s***.

Notice how Nintendo themselves haven't actually announced anything.

What I'm hoping for this system is to be significantly more powerful than PS3/360, I am not expecting this to be on the level of a PS4 or neXtBox but for the new Nintendo system to be powerful enough that it can get downgraded ports of PS4/nextbox games. That was the problem with the Wii not getting third party games and getting PS2 ports that makes Wii games look worse than Gamecube games even if the Wii is far more powerful than the Gamecube was.

Even if Nintendo does the bare minimum with just slightly above 360/PS3 graphics like last gen with the Wii being more powerful than the original xbox I'll be all over it, even if we've had consoles that can do that for years now, we've never had Nintendo games done with those specs yet so it'll still be awesome. What I'm most excited is about the controller, I am glad Nintendo tries to innovate even if its not always a hit. I can not believe that the PS3 uses basically the same PS1 controller, ugh.

Which itself is basically a Super Nintendo controller.

Oh joy, more console madness? I'm still trying to decide if I should grab a PS3. I suppose I will, since I tend to grab consoles in alternating orders from manufacturers (N64, PS2, Wii, and I suppose next will be PS3).

Nintendo has announced a new system, that would feature a different controller, possibly with gyroscope/infared motion sensing controls, 

but what is still not confirmed is a dualtouchscreen that changes its buttons depending on the game and still unconfirmed is the abillity to temporarally store some games onto the controller.
...with 8GB on board flash memory for saving photos, files, and games
 
I'm hoping for L/R triggers, and a Slide pad as well as two actual buttons, resembling a SNES, controller with L/R triggers and a Touchscreen...

It's going to need some excellent 3rd party support.

Also, i hear rumors that it will be an HD system.

It definitely needs some power.  I can't stand those titles for Wii which are the "weak" versions of the 360/PS3 version.

Because this topic was created first, and serves exactly the same purpose. There's no need to have two topics on the same thing.

I agree with Honda. Since when have they not been?

You can't trust any thing these sites say until Nintendo announces anything about the console at E3.
