wii u system oxcgn #5While attempting to avoid the crossfire of the newly revitalized Play Station versus Xbox console war, I found myself in an unusual position: I’m not as excited as I’d like to be for either console.

Anyone who’s paid any attention to the recent E3 conferences can tell you that Microsoft’s conference was widely considered to be, to put it lightly, sub par.

Even if the console is in and of itself innovative, Microsoft’s approach to selling their product was disastrous.

While always an Xbox fan, I found myself leaning towards the PS4. However, Sony’s approach to selling their console was not perfect either: while their console is arguably more user-friendly, the conference was riddled with low-blows and sarcasm aimed at Microsoft and the Xbox One.

During this increasing animosity, I decided to take a different approach. I took a more earnest look at what Nintendo has to offer, and I’m truly glad that I did.

However, the motherload has finally arrived.

A developer choosing to remain anonymous for obvious reasons has spilled the beans on Reddit, giving juicy details about what to expect from the next gen systems.

Buckle up, because it’s fascinating.
