Confirmed: Nintendo announces working on Wii 2 console

Confirming a continuous glut of rumours spread over the past two weeks or more, Nintendo has announced it is indeed working on a new version of its popular Nintendo Wii console, which will be previewed at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles in June.

The original Wii proved a runaway hit for Nintendo when it launched five years ago. However, sales have been gradually declining in the face of tough competition from PlayStation, XBox 360 and mobile gaming platforms.

Wii was the first console of the current generation to offer motion controlled gameplay. However, in the past year, Microsoft has introduced its Kinect system for XBox, while Sony launched PlayStation Move. It has long been speculated that Nintendo may try to improve on the console in the near future to continue their trend of gaming innovation – and Satoru Iwata, Nintendo’s Chief Executive, suggested that his company was preparing to do just that.

    Confirmed: The “PlayStation Phone” cometh!

    It’s been rumoured, supposedly debunked, and rumoured again more times than Ant & Dec have appeared on TV, but now it’s finally official: The “PlayStation Phone” is real, and it’s coming to market very soon!

    Officially named the Xperia Play, the phone combines a traditional Android 3.0-powered smart-phone with a preloaded PlayStation Pocket app for downloading and playing PlayStation games. It’s also powered by a Qualcomm chip for lightning fast performance. The Xperia Play has been leaked and spied for months, with Sony Ericsson happily previewing the phone on several occasions – but despite it all, there were constant doubts as to whether the phone was ever actually going to be released.

    O2, T-Mobile/Orange and Vodaphone have all confirmed they will host the phone in the UK as soon as it is launched, which Orange has stated is due in April. This leaves only the Three network left to confirm a launch.

    Pricing is still to be confirmed by all the networks.
