IGN is reporting here using information that they’ve gotten from Game Informer and their own sources that Nintendo is planning to debut a new console, dubbed Project Café at E3. This system is reported to be more powerful then the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and feature a more conventional controller with a 6 inch touch-screen display on it (you can see IGN’s concept design here). Personally it sounds a bit fantastic to me and I for one will have to wait until Nintendo confirms this information one way or another before I pass judgment on it, but for now it’s an interesting concept. I would love to see Nintendo rededicate themselves to the hardcore gamer audience but a new system is only part of the solution. An online network to compare with Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network would go a long way as well. We’ll all have to wait until more information comes out to see what, if anything, Nintendo has planned.
