You know what I like trafficking in? Rumors! Here comes one now: According to an unnamed "employee at a major international publisher" quoted by VideoGamer.com, Nintendo is getting ready to unveil a new console at this year's Game Developers Conference.
Here's what the source told the site: "Just heard a rumor that you may be interested in: Nintendo are going to announce a new platform at GDC. Some devs have already started work on it."
No word on whether this is a handheld or a console, or a wearable 3D apparatus like the Virtual Boy, although the source said he/she is sure that the platform exists, he/she is less sure of the GDC launch.
I give this rumor a 30 percent chance of being true, but that will not stop me from telling you about it. I'm just that kind of guy... besides, if there really is some new Nintendo doo-wacky at GDC, I'll be all, "Told you so, sucka."
In fact, I'm going to take the rumor-mongering further! By reporting this: According to my entirely imaginary source, Nintendo's new console is called the "Nintendo Breeze" and it's an apparatus that allows "smell-based" gaming. It also delivers automatic, soothing blasts of Nitrous Oxide during relevant game sections. See picture below.
