There was no NX topic so I figured I will make one.

 

Some interesting info from EG:

Nintendo's upcoming NX will be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers, a number of sources have confirmed to Eurogamer.

On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal - but here's the twist: we've heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required.

Then, when you get home, the system can connect to your TV for gaming on the big screen.

A base unit, or dock station, is used to connect the brain of the NX - within the controller - to display on your TV.

NX will use game cartridges as its choice of physical media, multiple sources have also told us.

Considering NX's basis as a handheld first and foremost, the choice may not come as too much of a surprise - although we have heard the suggestion Nintendo recommends a 32GB cartridge

Inside the NX, as stated above, the system will harness Nvidia's powerful mobile processor Tegra. Graphical comparisons with current consoles are difficult due to the vastly different nature of the device - but once again we've heard Nintendo is not chasing graphical parity. Quite the opposite, it is sacrificing power to ensure it can squeeze all of this technology into a handheld, something which also tallies with earlier reports.

 

Power somewhere between a Wii-U and XB1 (but portable)

I was wondering if there as an NX thread to share the same info :D Good to see that Big Boss made one!

 

If Ninty can make this successful, NX would be doing what Vita was promised to deliver. I can't wait to play a game like Zelda - Breadth of the Wild on the go :punk:

I thought with NX nintendo was trying to surpass ps4 and xbox one in terms of power. Lol.

Let's hope this device gets third party support. I don't think NX will survive on a very limited first party library like Wii-U did. Maybe at a 200-250usd price point but definitely not at 300+.

FINALLY Monster Hunter will be in HD OMG

 

Even though I am hella salty with Nintendo about Wii U. But this looks good , they gave up on traditional console and went full force on handheld. Power is not an issue because Nintendo arent really interested in making large scale AAA games. So even if it was as powerful as PS4 , they wouldn't really be using it fully.

 

 

Lol wtf. It will use Cartridges?

Everyone is moving towards UHD Blu Ray drives now.

 

Its a handheld , disc drives on handhelds are a pain.

 

Basically it's a rebadged Nvidia Shield TV with some added functionality.

 

Honestly if Shield had a good software lineup it would have done well. This one will.

Wut? 3DS has sold more than PS4,Vita and XB1 combined.

 

Combining their handheld and Mainline console is a great idea , they can focus all efforts on one console. And 3DS already has good third part support. They know they cant compete directly with PS4 or XB1 with a console ( Even if it was more powerful ). So this way we get another good system.

DS sold 155m

PSP sold 80m

3DS sold 60m(not more than PS4 & XBone combined)

 

PSvita crashed to 14m

 

 

Handheld market is competing with Smart Devices now

The days of PS & DS handhelds are not same anymore

 

 

The way it's going to be priced is important....& the specs being touted make it look like another Vita

there was no market for Vita no matter how much sony tried....it was left without support(third party)

 

 

Yet again only hardcore Nintendo fans will buy this just like WIIU

no BC makes it even more laughable.....as First Party will have to make so many games for it to create a line up

 

 

Anyway I do hope it saves the Handheld Hardcore market.....which is looking in trouble

I will think about buying it if it has some good action games

Its only comparable to Vita if Vita could play all PS3 games at same fidelity with 100% cross compatibility and at zero extra cost, because that's what NX is set out to do.

Also, if vita had handheld juggernauts like monster hunter, pokemon, mario kart, animal crossing etc.

NX is NX

there is no PS3 to NX

 

In it's time PSvita was middle-ground of PS2 & PS3

just like I read above NX is middle-ground to wiiU & XB1

 

Vita had TV connection options too....maybe not in HD till vita tv but it did

 

 

If NX can play all XB1 games at those fidelity then even I am sold

coz then most third party will develop for XB1/PS4 & NX

 

 

but is that the case?!

If NX can come at least close to PS4/XB1 performance it might have a chance to be very big.

 

a ) Unlike Wii U , this is a portable. Which means its going to have a sizeable userbase similar to 3DS. Yes while its not Gameboy , 60m is still a lot. 3DS also has good third party support.

 

b ) PS4 and XB1 will be supported even after NEO and Scorpio come out. So at least for the next few years , NX can get Vanilla PS4 ports. If specs are comparable.

 

c ) Pokemon is ridiculously big right now , if they can Tap into that audience. It will be a huge boost.

 

d ) We finally get HD Monster Hunter AFTER 10 freaking years.

 

e ) Its very weird that a Sonic game is announced for it , and not a Mario game. Its like some alternate timeline from the SNES Genesis era :rofl:

Well that is true , If it is close to Vita specs then it will fail. But hopefully that is not the case.

 

There has been huge developments wrt to mobile graphics processors. Mobile phones themselves are very capable but lead themselves to problems such as overheating and battery life because they are not dedicated devices.

 

And no PS4 is at 40m while Xbox isnt even half of that.

3DS had good support

So did PSP

 

Didn't follow in Vita

The handheld market dynamics have changed big time since then

 

Pokemon Go audience is not the kind that would spend $300 & try to get into core stuff
