It's interesting to see someone from the Nintendo crew be the first one to talk about a new console. Metriod co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto spoke to 3DJuegos about a new console from Nintendo. The google translation gives us the following:
"At Nintendo we always have the obligation to surprise users with a new console. We have never done what others. We prefer to create something new that catches attention, and I think this will continue at this time. Surely the new Nintendo machine will leave you all with mouth open".
Some people speculated that a "Hi-res" Wii would be announced at E3, but that didn't happen. But was that due to not wanting to take the limelight asay from the 3DS? It's possible, but unlikely that the new console would be unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show. Not to mention the Wii is doing perfectly fine, even with the amount of shovelware that is being released. My bet is on E3 2011 and that this time Nintendo will be the first company to usher in the next generation of video game consoles.
