If these rumours are to believed then the new systems hardware will be capable of great things. Some concerns however are points of battery life and overheating and that tiny 32GB HDD (it is a HDD for ants?). What are the chances of Nintendo releasing a controller with only a 3-hour battery life though? Would never happen.
