Nintendo Wii HD: ‘Hardcore’ Console More Powerful than Xbox 360, PS3?

By Alan Ng - Apr 15, 2011

Following on from our earlier report which gave you the exciting news that a new Nintendo Wii console could be unveiled at E3 2011 in June, we now have additional information to give you now, which suggests that the new console will be more powerful than the Sony PS3 and Xbox 360.

Of course, it’s hard to believe that based on what we’ve seen with the Wii, but we can’t wait to see what Nintendo announce in just a few months time. Since Game Informer and now IGN and Kotaku are now all reporting that a new console is on the way – it does seem likely that Nintendo fans are going to get that Wii HD console that they have been craving for years.

But will it really be more powerful than the PS3 or Xbox 360? That would be amazing if that turns out to be true since both consoles can churn out some serious graphics as it is, who would have thought it would be Nintendo who ends up with the superior console – until the PS4 and Xbox 720 arrives anyway.

Another major bombshell that we’re hearing about, is that Nintendo are aiming to recapture the hardcore audience with their new console, so could that mean we’ve seen the last of these silly Wii Fit and Party games? Make our dreams come true Nintendo.. and remake Link to the Past while you’re at it please.

Let us know your thoughts on this gamers. Do you believe the rumors that Nintendo are building a console more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PS3?
