They're televising the investor's meeting, aren't they? Why would they want the media to see it if something significant won't be unveiled?

Fuck IGN and them getting a false graphics rumor going AGAIN for another system.(if system really is just same level as 360-PS3) So annoying for a well respectable website to get such hype going.

How is it even possible that the system will only be "slightly" more powerful than the Xbox 360?

Is the system going to be the size of an Apple TV?

Woah now. The S was/is pretty much the current 360 controller. I'd give you the Duke though.

The Duke was hilarious. The width wasn't even my problem with it - having another inch or two of separation between your hands is actually a positive, as it reduces the default angle of your wrists, but the thing was way too fucking deep/thick/round. I have larger than average hands, and to use the right thumbstick I had to switch to using my middle finger for the right trigger - the index wouldn't reach.

I don't get people who want MORE console exclusive 3rd party games.

Speaking as a non-console owner. Exclusives are tend to harness a system's unique features (controller) and really push the system's power (see PS3 exclusives).

Eh, I have Sony and Nintendo systems. I just like to dream of GTA5 on Stream because I like to imagine it would fully utilize all the system's features, like Chinatown Wars on DS (but less cumbersome, as it happened to be with pulling the stylus out constantly).

Aha! A daring riposte but I counter with the fact that everything about this system seems like Nintendo is pushing out of their safe zone a but and if you are going to bother to go high def at this point in the game with a system why not?
Drive prices are negligible by this point.

Gamecube controller is probably the worst controller in the past 2 generations, in relative terms. A fair bit under the Wiimote/Nunchuck combo, which is pretty damn good.
seriously? you've used the dual shock i assume. That thing is an abomination when it comes to ergonomics. Especially when comes to analog stick placement on the controller. The fact that they just stuck them on the original PS1 controller (no analog stick) design without addressing the ergonomics makes it extremely hard to hold without your fingers rubbing against the edge of the circular parts on the back of the controller.. I can't believe Sony gave in to fan pressure and didn't revamp the design, the boomerang looked much more comfortable to hold than the dual shock does.

On the other hand, the Gamecube controller is magical, fits like a glove. So does the nunchuck and wii remote. I have no doubt that this controller will be easy to hold as well.

Guys, stop talking tech/DVDs/etc and start dreaming up game possibilities with your *makes hand gesture forming a rainbow* i-ma-gi-na-tions.

Don't shy away from being too crazy: The real Shenmue III? A FFVII remake? A new Star Tropics? A new Rogue Squadron? Eh? Ehhh??

Games are the fun part. :-\

Flash memory is getting cheaper… Could we expect Nintendo focussing on a DS card like media (~16Gb) for their home console? Assuming they will stick with DVDs is wrong IMO…

I'll come up with game ideas when we know some of the unique features and actually see the controller.

EDIT: Why is that mockup missing the Y Button?

Ooh, can't wait for conf.

Also, people dislike the GC controller? Hmm.

...I guess it was bad in terms of the D-Pad, and the size (for people with big hands, nudge nudge). I liked using it for hours on end, only giving up after intense sessions of SSBM.

As for the controller mockup...it could maybe work, if the sides of the unit molded to fit the hands more. Then it would be 'fine' for gameplay (maybe sort of like holding the CC controller, with a larger distance between hands), and not-so-good-looking on the looks department.
