Nintendo has confirmed that their newest gaming system is scheduled for just less than a year from now. This new console, referred to as both Wii 2 and Project Café, will tentatively be available by April 2012.
Not too much is known yet about the latest gaming console. It has been said that this system will be more powerful than the Xbox and Playstation 3. The Wii 2 may also have new controllers. Wii tends to be very popular with families and casual gamers. Will the new Wii still appeal to those groups? E3 2011 is in June, which is when the Wii 2 will be demonstrated. At that point we should have a greater idea of everything the newest Wii system will have to offer.
According to IGN.com, this new system may have a price tag of $350 to $400. Ouch! Even at its highest price, the original Wii system cost only $250. And effective May 15, 2011 the price of the Wii gaming system will be dropping to an all time low price of $149.99.
