E3: Darksiders 2 Already Running on New Nintendo Console Wii U

June 9, 2011

Bossfight Gaming Blog - E3 2011
THQ States:

“We have Darksiders II completely running on the Wii U right now. It took about five weeks. Coming into the show we were ready to go. We could have demonstrated it on the hardware but they [Nintendo] decided not to have full games shown in the booth.

Instead, as confirmed by Nintendo this week, PS3 and Xbox 360 footage was shown to reveal that Darksiders II is set for launch on Wii U, due out next year. But if you were to go into Vigil in Austin, Texas right now, Darksiders II is fully running on the new hardware.

The Darksiders team was one of the first teams to get dev kits. We’ve had dedicated engineers on it working seven day weeks leading up to the show.I’ve got all the emails. We now have it running with the controller. So we could have shown it”

There is a chance that you saw a piece of video on this website, containing a presentation showing the Wii2 a.k.a. project cafe.

We can confirm that this video is fake. It was student project, goal was to create a viral(in other words a YouTube hit).
They generated 600.000 views, think they passed?

Rumor: Nintendo courting Rockstar for Wii 2 development

April 19, 2011

Bossfight Gaming Blog - Wii 2 Rockstar GTA

The “Wii 2” rumors are raging again, for sure, but now they’re in danger of burning out of control — so let’s backtrack. After delivering some spot-on NGP specs days before Sony’s official unveiling ceremony, French tech site 01net earned its web cred. That’s why the games media took notice (and some even corroborated) when the wonder site reignited the Wii successor rumors last Thursday, and then tossed in some more fuel the following day.

This week, 01net has come out with another intriguing report about Nintendo’s supposed next console: Rockstar’s on board. The site’s sources claim that the Grand Theft Auto creator is the first confirmed company to secure a developer unit of the new Nintendo hardware. The sources add that the system, said to be codenamed “Project Cafe,” is expected to be released in June 2012. And here’s where the rumor starts to grow more wild.

Gamekyo somewhat carelessly throws out there that Grand Theft Auto 5 is also rumored for 2012 — is it? (There’s at least been some recent evidence that the next GTA is in the works.) And then, GoNintendo fits it all together: “Rockstar has a dev kit […] working on GTA V (which is sure to hit PS3/360 as well) […] hoping to have it available at launch.” Eureka? Not quite.

But, boy, if Nintendo is on the verge of announcing the one console to rule them all and has a Rockstar logo to flaunt during the presentation? Talk about printing money …

Sources: The Wii 2 Exists, and We’ll See It at E3 in June

April 15, 2011

bossfight gaming blog - mario wii2

From Wii price cuts to console successors, here we go with silly season rumors again: In this corner, the Nintendo Wii 2, or Wii successor, or Nintendo’s Next Big Thing. GameStop-owned Game Informer magazine claims that it’s heard from “multiple sources” that Nintendo’s planning to unveil whatever’s next at E3 in June, “if not sooner.”

Sadly the most important thing to Game Informer seems to be the system’s reported ability to run games at high-definition resolutions–sort of like pointing out that a contemporary computer comes with a mouse (or, you know, USB ports). There’s also some mumbling about whether the system can go rounds pixel-for-pixel with the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 (because we need more system war flame bait).

Word is Nintendo’s already chatting up publishers, showing around the system to drum up interest. Launch timeframe? Not until 2012. Which, much as we’d all love a new Nintendo system in time for the holidays this year, makes sense if you want to give developers and publishers time to put together a solid stable of launch titles.

“Nintendo is doing this one right,”

Said one of Game Informer’s anonymous sources. “[It’s] not a gimmick like the Wii.”

Right, because the Wii was just a gimmick. A system that utterly destroyed the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in unit sales internationally. A system that’s still outselling both of those systems more months than not.

In any event, now we wait, and speculate, and dissect rumors, and dish. Just remember: What will be, will be, and all we can hope for at this point is that whatever’s next, Nintendo makes it as unusual and industry-upending as their last two ideas.
