Is Nintendo’s ‘Project Cafe’ actually called Beem?

NeoGaf members have been doing their research once again and this time, they may have unearthed the real name for Nintendo’s Wii successor, which has previously been dubbed Project Cafe.

It seems that a few ‘Beem’ related URLs have been registered recently, with Nintendobeem.com going on May 24 when it was bought by the same company that registered Nintendowii.com and Nintendo3DS.com

Nintendobeeem.com and Nintendobeam.com were both registered, at the slightly later date of May28 while three more URLs, Nintendobeemstore.com, Nintendobeemshop.com and Nintendobeemgames.com were all registered on June1.

It would be easy enough to jump to the conclusion that this has nothing to do with Nintendo and somebody else has registered the domains to try and fool us, but the domain BEEM.COM was purchased on January 31 for $136,000. No joker would spend that amount of money on a domain, just for a laugh.

We’re likely to find out what Nintendo’s new console actually is, when their press conference starts on Tuesday at 9am PST / 5pm BST
