Mario's Creator Doesn't Want To Talk Wii 2

I'm ready to talk Wii 2. You're ready. But Shigeru Miyamoto? So not ready.

"Don't ask!" the Mario creator told Edge. "Even when the Wii launched we were developing new hardware, work on 3DS had already started. It's a matter of when we announce it."

In the past Nintendo has said that it is always working on new hardware - which, of course, makes sense. It's just a matter of what is actually released and what is not (hello Wii Vitality Sensor).

So when pressed on whether the new console will be shown at the E3 gaming expo in June, Miyamoto replied, "Please wait. Be patient until we decide."

The console is apparently code named "Project Cafe", and it will be a pricey, high-tech game machine. Kotaku has heard that the new machine will be more powerful than current generation machines like the PS3 and Xbox 360.

According to our sources, the console's controller will have a touchscreen, two analogue sticks and a camera.

While Miyamoto is asking players to wait, Nintendo can't wait too long and kick back to, say, 2014. That's when insiders tell Kotaku that Microsoft and Sony are targeting for their new game consoles.

    insiders? wtf is this the mafia or something.

      Must be your first time reading a video game / hardware tech article.

    I would just like to see a nintendo console without those bloody friend codes. lol

    I cant see the ps3 or 360 giving up any time soon. But yes, the Wii is slowly dying and Zelda will be the only game i get for it this year...XenoBlade maybe:D

      What about Last Story and Pandoras Tower if they are released outside of japan :)
