Greetings, my friends. Have you heard the news? It seems that Nintendo is preparing a new home console for launch in 2012 that sports high definition visuals, a shiny HD screen embedded in the controller, motion controls, camera technology, backwards compatibility all the way back to the GameCube era, and all kinds of other things. At least, those are the rumors floating around the Internet right now. This week on Power Button, join us as we analyze the rumors to see which of them just don't make sense given what we already know. We also take shots at the game journalism industry itself for feeding into the hype and perpetuating crazy half-truths and nebulous cloak-and-dagger anonymous sources as well as some introspection regarding why most people are so eager to believe it all. Our special guest is our industry pal Ryan Olsen, community manager for Toy Studio Games. We have just under fifty minutes of Nintendo-centric discussion and analysis for you.
