Nintendo’s New Console Will Be At E3, Playable ‘By Everyone.’

Well, son of a bitch! Just add another thing to the list of reasons why I’d sell a good pint of my liqui-children to a bank or two for the opportunity to go to E3. Nintendo has confirmed their new console will be there, and people who are attending will get to play it.


Nintendo’s confirmation this morning that they’ll be showing their new console at E3 left many unanswered questions, but also raised a note of skepticism. The company’s statement on the Wii successor promises “a playable model” of the machine at E3 in June. But would Nintendo just play it on stage and leave attendees to gawk? No. “Playable means playable by everyone,” a spokesperson for Nintendo told Kotaku today. Presumably, “everyone” means “everyone who shows up at E3 and maybe waits on a line or schedules an appointment.” We’ll be there in June, playing it.

I am Caffeine Powered’s raging jealousy.
