Nintendo's set to announce its Wii successor, codenamed Project Cafe next month at E3, but that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from speculating on what features the controller will have. Besides a six-inch touchscreen, the new controller is now said to have a camera.
This is so sad. Gaming blog Kotaku has it on good authority that Nintendo's next console, the Wii HD (tentative name) will not include a sizable hard drive in the same line as Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360 consoles. If true, games on demand will be out of the question on the Wii HD.
There you go. Straight from the horse's mouth: Nintendo will be launching a Wii successor in 2012. You now have the rest of this year to save up your pennies and prepare to hand it over the company that gave the world Super Mario, Zelda and Metroid.
Concrete hardware details are drifting in concerning the Wii HD. The new Nintendo console is rumored to have a controller with a touchscreen and dual analog sticks. There is also said to be an updated Wii Remote and Nunchaku combo as well. Aside from the controller, we don't know squat about the console. IGN says it does.

We've heard the controller will sport a six-inch touchscreen. Here's the part I love best, though: the silly mock-ups made from the rumors.
Coming off the heels of yesterday's breaking news that Nintendo will unveil a new high definition successor to the Wii in June at E3, we're all lusting for more info. CVG says it has the latest scoop on Nintendo's controller, which is said to have an HD screen.
Well, this is interesting. Kotaku is reporting that Nintendo is planning to unveil the successor to the Wii this summer at the E3 conference, and it'll be more powerful than both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The Wii has never been the most powerful game console out there, but these days its chunky, standard-def graphics are looking worse than ever. Could it be about time for Nintendo's next-gen system? Kotaku seems to think so.
If you were hoping to get a little more mileage out of Nintendo's Wii, which doesn't really take advantage of the modern home theater, then Nintendo has some bad news for you. In an interview with GameSpot, Nintendo's Cammie Dunaway...
