The internet has been buzzing over a rumor that Nintendo is getting ready to announce new hardware. During a Nintendo Voice Chat podcast, IGN’s Peer Schneider says he heard from multiple sources that Nintendo would announce new hardware at E3 in Los Angeles. IGN carefully chose not to publish the story as an actual article, but that didn’t stop the rumor from spreading. Especially since Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said they would reveal more details about their future QOL device later this year.
CVG reached out to Nintendo about the rumor, and a company representative denied any new hardware announcements at E3. Nintendo tells CVG that announcing new hardware “is currently not under consideration” for the event.
