Nintendo Set to Launch New HD Gaming Console?

Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. in HD? Maybe, if rumors are correct about the company working on a new gaming console. Game Informer reports that an announcement could come as soon as E3, the big gaming conference in June. While it wasn’t expected, a new console would give Nintendo a shot at increasing revenues as sales of its very successful Wii diminish, and would provide it an opportunity to have hardware more on par with Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft’s Xbox. A key feature would be a high-definition display. A spokesperson declined to comment on rumors or speculation.
