Before your hears start racing, let me say there isn`t any official confirmation or am i talking about a source close to a given company.
BUT, given the source, you can believe it will happen!

 

This user on vgchartz.com, who works on a big videogame retailer and has access to some info like shipments, etc., has given in the past correct info on HW and SW pre-orders for the retail chain, and other info aswell.
So far, he has been right.

 

Now, given his access, he is saying that new HW will be revealed at E3.

What it is, he doesn`t know much and, of course, can`t say much. But here`s a hint he has given:

 

It`s coming out in 2014 - as confirmed by him;

"will have new accessories related to it" - his words.

 

A bundle was given as a possibility, but he doesn`t think it is it.

 

 

You can follow the thread here, if you want: http://gamrconnect.v...d=184524&page=1

 

 

Either it`s from one of the big three and if it is, my money is on Nintendo.
Could also be amazon`s console; could be something entirely new.

E3 can`t come soon enough!

I can see a new Gamepad coming. A bit smaller than the current one with a higher pixel density. Also a qualitative upgrade along in the fashion of 3ds -> 3dsXL

There's that PS4/Vita bundle that was leaked by Amazon France.

Some people always have a cellphone on them. I'm so awesome I always have a 3DS.

That is not a gaming platform.

It's either the gamecube adapter, or something from microsoft without kinnect or something from, sony, and trying to stay relevant in handheld gaming.

Could be.

Can`t be the gamecube adapter since it`s not a secret.

MS are already releasing something tomorrow. Would be weird to release something else for that this year. Unless it`s something related to VR gaming.

 

Peer from IGN was convinced that new HW would be shown at E3!

Ugh, true enough, could be morpheus or microsoft's copy of oculus rift, just as rainbow as sony's copy of it.

It doesn't matter if it's not a secret, new hardware in a company's inventory can be down as anything.

Why do people not get this? VGchartz has ZERO I said ZERO info on sales. They DO NOT WORK WITH ANYONE! They put their own system in place and make total guesswork.  They never even adjust when official numbers comes out they stick to their own BS numbers even tho they either over track or under track they are never right. Also if you think working in retail gives you some sort of insider info you are dead wrong. I was a Gamestop Manager staff years ago. The only thing you know is when something arrives in the store but it's never super inside anything. It's what everyone knows already other than what's in your backroom and what I mean is inventory but no super secret anything. MS/Sony/Nintendo Reps know less than you think they do. They are for Store PR and setting up kiosks and such.  Reps also often make random guesses at things.

 

Often people who work in retail like to pretend they have this info and hold it over people on forums. It's old as dirt

Wouldn`t the gamecube adapter and the gamecube controller qualify, both, as accessories. That`s not what would expect of the term hardware.

They way he expressed himself was that something important/big was coming and that it would use accessories.

Stop believing retail employees have inside knowledge. Seriously.

He has. That`s why he has proven himself right most of the times, if not always.

Yeah, the screen he's reading at his gamestop says "hardware xxx" with a placeholder "july 2014" is pretty big.

It´s hard for me to show you how credible he is. Stop by the forums and read his posts. That`s all i can say.
Btw, i never said what his position is - mainly because i don`t even know.

The main point of e3 is to inform retailers of publisher's plans.

It's easy to do. Esp when something is rumored for a long time like another 3DS revision since they are phasing out original 3DS.

If there really was a new console to be shown, wouldn't the leak be so much more widespread? That's been my experience over with the Wii, 3DS, and Wii U. Especially the 3DS and Wii U, the leaks for them were so widespread and consistent. There is no such thing for a console this year.

 

Naturally I would be highly skeptical of this, but it's just not believable to begin with.
