Nintendo denies it is preparing to unveil new hardware at this year's E3 Nintendo has denied the rumor that it will be revealing a new console at this year's E3 event, squashing hopes that the company could be preparing a sequel to its failed Wii U.
"I can confirm Nintendo is not revealing any hardware at this year's E3," reads the official statement.

There have been rumors for the past year that Nintendo is working on its new "Fusion" console. Most recently, IGN and other outlets reported that trusted sources including third-party developers and former Nintendo employees had confirmed the new hardware.

While the company may not be unveiling new consoles, there certainly could be a revision to the Wii U or a new accessory or peripheral.

For a look back at the rumored specs of the Fusion, check our previous report here.

Nintendo's keynote at E3 is scheduled for June 10th.

I love it.. You do realize that Nintendo has enough cash to run at a deficit for nearly 40 years right? Nintendo dominates sales of last generation with the DS and Wii and they are a failure. They are still dominating with the 3DS but the Wii U is struggling and they are still a failure despite them being more financially stable than the gaming divisions of their competitors and even more stable than many of the top game studios.

Comments about Nintendo going 3rd party are ridiculous because it shows that some of the people that make those comments would buy the games if it came out for the dudebroboxstation of their choice but will not get a Nintendo system to play them like it hurts their self-proclaimed hardcore image. What a joke.

Well that's how I feel about the PS4 and XB1.. Not worth $400+ for a few exclusives that do no interest me when I can get just about every other game on my PC or Nintendo. Either way I am saying saying Nintendo is dead and they will go or should go third party is ridiculous seeing as Sony is bleeding cash at a much higher rate than Nintendo despite their sales of the PS4 and Microsoft blows big budgets and the XBOX only survives because of Microsoft's other products and services. Just seems silly to me.

I am not insulting your game choice by the way because to each is own. Just pointing out Nintendo being doomed is a fallacy made up by people who do not know any better. Nintendo has had a few rough years but Sony and Microsoft have had rough decades. Same with many other game studios which many of which are closing down these days and losing top developers abandoning ship.

completely agree with bobiroc! Nintendo is more than financially well off, I am not a fanboy in anyway and buy most consoles with a healthy library, but if Nintendo went the way of Sega then I will have to go the way of Atari.

Nintendo creates a box to play their software and always in a unique way, I pop in the game and play. I don't need online to enjoy, I don't have to sit through constant system updates waiting to play my game because the company is scared of piracy or the developer didn't put in the effort to finish the product before release.

Nintendo Gives me a console to play games that are always changing and well developed, they don't make my HTPC for me and charge me an ass-load for additional features that I already have on my HTPC and I respect that. but regardless people have been spewing the same crap every generation about Nintendo and will always do so. After all I don't think its very "Cool" to talk about how you got your a$$ handed to you in the new Super Luigi U game at school...

How many people bought a Wii? Pretty much everyone I know owns a Wii. How many people play their Wii on a regular basis. No one that I know of.

Ultimately for me the Wii was a poor investment & I won't make the same mistake by purchasing the Wii U. I am not loyal to any console but I really don't get why people keep lapping up the same games but on a new console. Mario, Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, zelda. Yawn.

The WWI U dose not even have the trid party titles that make buying one PS4 or Xbone worth while. TO much of a game drought between the good games.
