Oh yeah, the gaming console market. The Japanese company, Nintendo, have confirmed that they will be unveiling the successor to the Wii gaming system during the E3 Expo tradeshow in Los Angeles (June 7-9, 2011). Nintendo started it all, you know from the Wii, the PlayStation Move was born and from these two the Microsoft Kinect for the Xbox was born. 

Not much was disclosed with Nintendo's intentions to unveil the device come E3 Expo tradeshow. But BGR, says that the device currently given a codename "Project Cafe". The new system is said to integrate a new feature called the "Screen Stream". The system gives each player a touchscreen controller (BGR terms it as display). Interesting indeed.

So the best, I mean, the greatest technology ever given to the gaming industry comes from Microsoft's Kinect technology. There is no doubt that the Kinect is the system that is way ahead of the competition. With this announcement, it is clear that the industry is very alive and kicking! Game on!
