    Wii 2 leaked information

    With E3 just around the corner itís not entirely unusual to see plenty of confidential information leak ahead of E3 press conferences. Whether this information is legit is anyoneís guess, but thereís certainly quite a few interesting titbits thatís sure to excite many if this list of Project Cafe related information is true.

    The System:

    * Uses a custom IBM triple-core CPU running at 3.6GHz per core
    * The development kit contains 1gb RAM, but Nintendo have hinted that the console will actually have 1.5gb
    * Nintendo will be releasing games that will run 1080p natively. Sources say that with Nintendoís art style and the power the system has, the games look Ďstunningí.
    * The system does run on AMD R700 card, but the architecture is slightly different and the clock speeds are much higher.
    * The System resembles JPN/EU SNES machines in color only and not in shape
    * The development kit is about the size of a 360, not the console
    * Close sources say itís as if Nintendo is in ďdamage controlĒ with 3rd party developers.
    * Nintendo is trying really hard to get 3rd parties on board to develop games and have offered incentives such as not releasing big-title Nintendo games in holiday seasons to compete against 3rd party titles.
    * Nintendo went to many 3rd party developers on guidance on what they were after with the new console in terms of system specs, controller and online system.

    The Controller:

    * Nintendo have been keeping this really quiet and have only given developers controller prototypes to start designing games. However, the final controller build with all the features have only been given to Nintendo 1st and 2nd party developers for now.
    * Nintendo had planned on inserting a screen on the controller back when the Gamecube was in development, but opted out due to technology not being advanced enough to be functional
    * The controller thatís been given to developers has a large 5.7inch hd (960x640pixel) screen, 2 analogue sticks, 4 face buttons, 3 middle buttons (select/home/start in that order), 2 shoulder buttons and 2 triggers.
    * The triggers arenít as deep as the 360ís triggers, but have plenty of push
    * The big thing about the screen is that itís a multi-touch screen, contains itís own battery and is detachable from the controller unit
    * The screen when detached contains its own memory so developers can store data on it, so gamers can play whatever the developer designs for the screen-only use
    * When the screen is attached to the controller it works by streaming content directly from the console
    * Nintendo are giving developers ideas other than just having it function as a quick menu screen for games while attached, or as a simple tamagochi-like mini-game when detached
    * The controller contains a gyroscope, but motion controls isnít the focus of the controller like it was for the Wii


    * Nintendo will release a Mario platformer as a launch title which hasnít been done since the N64.
    * The Mario platformer looks to be the spiritual successor to Mario 64.
    * Gamefreak and EAD are hard at work developing a Pokemon online RPG.
    * The Pokemon RPG is not an MMO, but does have a large online emphasis and will be Nintendoís flagship title when showing off the online capabilities of the console.
    * There will be at least one new IP Nintendo will reveal at E3.
    * Nintendo is working on a new Zelda, but didnít reveal anything to developers.


    # Some developers have had the Wii 2 dev kit for going on 2 years now. When the Wii 2 is released in late, thatís 3 years to develop games on
    # Because of such generous development time, Nintendo have pushed 3rd parties to develop high quality games to be released at or near launch.
    # Nintendo have sourced an external company to develop their online network, which the developer has commented, surpasses both the PS3 and 360 in terms of speed and functionality.
    # Nintendo is pushing for the console to be online 24/7 and have seamless online integration with many of their games
    # Friend codes are confirmed to be gone
    # Nintendo has been toying with the idea of a game where the main character is your Mii
    # Nintendo will be pushing their Pokemon RPG to showcase their online network
    # Rockstar are supposedly hard at work in bringing on of their ďmost popularĒ titles to the console.

    No guess on how legit the information is but with E3 upon us we'll know soon enough!
