As rumours of the next Nintendo home console fly thick and fast through the Mario-esque pipes of the internet, certain goombahs of information are emerging, some carrying with them believable 1UP mushrooms of evidence (okay enough with the word play).

The Kyoto Report, a Ninty fansite, claim to have evidence the Nintendo Technology Development team based in Seattle (at Nintendo of America) have been looking into "tracking systems and head-mounted stereoscopic displays along with CPU and GPU research and evaluation", as part of development for the new console. Moreover, they also claim Nintendo scored big, employing "one of the head engineers responsible for the PS3's Cell CPU and RSX GPU".

Take from all of this what you will, but it sounds more and more like Nintendo have to deliver the goods this E3, just out of respect for the rampant rumour mill.

While rumours are fun and all, Nintendo ALWAYS has massive hyped rumours leading up to e3 every year and then disappointment usually sets in. Stuff does sound exciting and they have put a ton of their free flowing cash into R&D I hear, but we will see what happens. It will be interesting for sure, to see where they go from here after going off the pure gaming path.

It would be nice to see Nintendo offer something that would make me want to step back into the console world, I haven't owned one since the N64.

You are a champion I knew there was a good reason why I liked you :).

Sorry man it's just a monsterous pet peeve of mine and my pet peeve meter has been on overload after being in the US for as long as I have now. Particularly when it comes to language.

Apparently, it's currently codenamed "Project Cafe," and there's some extra infor floating around today.

Many “sources” are citing a Project Cafe controller with built in touch screen, complete with camera and microphone. If true, it’s possible that a camera on the controller uses head tracking technology to send information to the console, thus allowing for a 3D illusion on screen. Motion tech is built into the pad, much like the Nintendo Wii controller (with significant improvements) and the controller contains buttons like any other Nintendo controller in the past.
The rumoured screen is said to act as a “tablet” that rivals the iPad; albeit 6 inches in size. The screen will apparently be capable of being used as it’s own handheld console; possibly allowing users to upload console games to the controller for play on the go. It has been said, however, that the screen will be standard definition (480p).
