Possible Project Cafe Release Date and Price
 
Between $350 and $400, and coming out late October/early November. Plus some possible hardware and design specs. Nintendo hasn't commented on this, so who knows if it's true.

Size is comparable to an original Xbox 360, and the touch screen on the controllers deal is being reaffirmed.

Edit: rumor

Those 3 LEDS are very 3DS in scheme Blue- Power, Orange -Wifi, Green - Message

and THAT looks a lot like



Either the group Anonymous attacking PSN is trying to take down Nintendo with graphic design or I these might be it.

Yeah, I'm thinking this might actually be real. And as a traditional controller, that's the best looking mock-up for it I've seen yet.

EDIT:

Plus, if the console is really named 'Stream', then the 'Screen Stream' on that mock-up would be spot-on.

So if you could theoretically stream games from the console to the controller and then play titles on the controller alone, wouldn't that torpedo Nintendo's own 3DS?

@New Forms

If the rumors are to be believed, you can only stream locally. Besides, there are fundamental differences, like the 3DS having 2 two screens, and glasses-free 3D.

This has all gotten out of hand very quickly.
I believe the controllers could have screens on,I believe the console will be the most powerful one on the market,but I really don't see it being ready by the end of this year and not at that price point.For me to pay that price it would have to be considerably more powerful than the PS3 or maybe come with two controllers and have a very decent launch line up,which im far from convinced it could possibly have since developers have only had dev kits for a short while.

The controller can't play (run, process) games; it can only display them.

The controllers in that mock up are butt ugly, I hope that's not real. I really do.

I only posted it as news because every other website ever was doing so too, sorry guys.

The controllers aren't terribly attractive but if the actual console looks like that then im pretty happy,it still looks pretty slim and stylish.

I think the controllers look great. I would love if they looked like that. Of course, I need my Wiimote functionality, but it looks like we may be getting two control schemes anyway.

This all feels sooo legit. What if they plan on launching in Japan by the end of the year? It would absolutely suck the wind out of the sales of Sony's old platforms. But seriously, doesn't this feel like the "leaks" Sony and Microsoft are famous for?

They look like someone jammed a screen in the middle of a controller. What kind of design is that? Did they run out of R&D money and just slap the first thing they thought of together? Talk about lack of innovative design, blech.

Blech x 20.

I don't mind the look,they just look a little uncomfortable.I know once I have one in my hands they will feel natural,they always do.
Im actually quite excited to use them,more so than I was with the Wii remote.

Maybe it is coming this year or early next year and at e3 nintendo is going to announce not only the console but some titles they have been making for it.

Also with the name stream maybe just maybe nintendo might be doing the Onlive thing and streaming games to us? I think that all consoles will go this route eventually but thought nintendo would for sure be the last to adopt it. But maybe just maybe they are going to be the first to do it.

Sony and Microsoft usually lose money on console sales to start so it would make sense for them to never want to release another console and just stream games to the users but nintendo has been making a killing on consoles so maybe im just a dreamer.

Stream... Wii... hmm...

Wii Stream...

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA PEE-PEE!!

Silliness aside, I hope for something concrete soon. We're awash in rumors and speculation, and the suspense is killing me.

Since screens are 'the tech' this gen my prediction is a 3D screen controller is the next Wii Motion Plus (upgrade) we see it around the launch of PS4 & Xbox Next
Posted: 04/22/11, 01:44:39
Seeing this controller so prominently makes me worried. I hope there's still a place for the Wiimote/Nunchuck combo with this new system.
Posted: 04/22/11, 01:52:44
I'm not saying these mockups are impossible, but look at my roughly to scale drawings and just let it simmer. That is a widescreen formatted 6 in diagonal screen. I have manly hands, and this would be massive in them. it is literally the size of 2 dualshocks.





And can we make one of these the official let's talk about the new console thread?

The one thing that is off in those "leaked images" is the size of the screens in the controllers.

It looks close to to 3.5-4", rather than the rumored 6". Unless those are giant analogue sticks and buttons.

@FINlos
Are you questioning if we can handle 6.2 inches?
Its not the size of the controller... its how we use it.
