Project Café aka The Wii 2 aka Nintendo Stream

If, like most people, you got tired of the Wii after the first five seconds, you may be hesitant to fork out money on the sequel, but don’t worry this time Nintendo is aiming the console at serious gamers, oppose to the casual gamers that the Wii targeted.

The console has been operating under the codename ‘Project Café’, which, as far as codenames go, sucks.  Now, it is rumoured that the official name, for the Wii 2, is the Nintendo Stream (as ign said, let’s hope they don’t call it the Wii Stream).

This new console will run faster than both the PS3 and Xbox 360.  It will have HD graphics.  Each of the games controllers are also handheld games, yeah that’s right it’s a console in a console.  Seems amazing right?  Of course all this means nothing if they don’t release any good games for it.  A lot of people are still waiting for good Wii games to hit the shelves, but it looks like that isn’t going to happen.

The console may be released near the end of this year, if not it should come out early 2012.  You should also note that it isn’t only the target audience that has gotten more serious, it’s the price too.  The price is expected to be around $400.  A European price has yet to be announced.  Just remember Nintendo is hesitant to confirm all the details so they may change.

What do you think?  Are you ready to buy another Nintendo console?  Do you think it sounds cool?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.  Also don’t forget to subscribe.

    I think the idea is good but I don’t think it will attract alot of people and with the games they better now stop making normal wii games because I’m planning on not buying it and sticking with the old one 🙂

    i well be getting the new “stream” good or not simply for game reviews and things i do on my youtube channel and what not.
    but i have to say this sounds very amazing their are a few game that i have disigned and up untill this idea it would have bin hard to make the idea of those games. but the idea of streaming HD content to controller wile all 4 controlls are used even in different rooms, sounds AMAZING. and have the 5th screen (tv) playing a mixed version of content or be off completly, this also provides all kinds of options even more if its a touch screen, for single player games, making it like a councle version of a DS screen, im hopping it well also have 3D on both the tv and hand held.

    just simply for the sake of having it, its nice to have the option i dont always play my 3DS in 3D but it makes the games a little better. another wish is that the HD controller screen is a OLED one. or a 3rd party like madcats or rocketfish make their own OLED screen controller. i also hope that it has still some use with motion controllers (and better ones) because it was amazing with wii and xbox kinect.
