  • A more powerful version of the Wii U tablet, without an actual console attached, just a method for connecting a the near infinite number of amiibos that will become their new business model.

    I think it'll be a home console.  I don't see there being a portable angle to it, as many suspect, but I do think it's being developed with similar/same architecture as Nintendo's next handheld.  You'll have to buy the same game twice (double pack deals maybe?) but then you get to move your save seamlessly between both devices.  I absolutely do not believe it'll be a hub with a flashy handheld.
    Watch the skies, traveller.
  • Fears are it won't be backwards compatible with U software and also more focus on shoe horning amiibo into every game they release.

    Im all up for a new gimmick, just has long as they can get 3rd parties behind them this time, or it's gonna be drought city again if they do not spend all that moolah on increasing their own dev teams & acquiring more 2nd party.

    Also hope they truly embrace online this time with all the bells & whistles that should be included as standard, yet I fear they may not, as they are to "protect the kiddies" focused.  The least they can do this time is at least give owners the options in parental controls.

    Will still buy it even if my fears come true, but I feel nothing will change untill the majority of the current board retire. They need new blood calling the shots, but they are not losing cash, and amiibo has become a new life line so I just cannot see to many changes at the top or change in focus.

    Also hope that if is some type of dual screen/pop out handheld beast, it will be also backwards compatible with 3DS software.

    Will also be happy if they go down the road of high capacity/storage cards/carts ting rather than disks, yet hope they have learned from past lessons ref about don't take the piss/get greedy when it comes to 3rd party.

    There's a thread on Reddit about next gen Amiibos. Apparently Nintendo have looked at the VR buzz everyone is trying to capitalise on and jumped one step ahead with an Amiboo implant which sends images directly to your optical lobe. The only hurdle is that the Amiboo has to be inserted rectally to directly engage the brain of the average Nintendo fan.

    I think NX means 'New Xperience'.

    It will come with a detachable tablet like screen which will display 3D images without glasses and act as a portal to 'New Neo Super Advanced Mario Galaxy Paper World RPG' where there are 7 Marios who need rescueing by a transgender Peach.
  • Nintendo NX
    1. Home console which runs Linux/Android based OS distro
    2. 3DS like controller
    3. Integrated online shop and online mp, think Steam. Supports discs and downloads.
    4. 3ds, NX and mobile, integrated and unified into one ecosystem. Access your vc collection and library on your handheld or NX.
    5. There will be amiboos

  • The biggest lesson nintendo has learned this gen?
    Don't fucking let go of your users when the next console cycle comes along. How to achieve such a feat? Ecosystem.
    Tie your users to you with an account + digital library and they'll think twice before defecting to Sony or Microsoft.

    Imagine if the Wii userbase never jumped ship.
    Nintendo's wet dream....

  • I am stating now that Amiibos are here to stay in one form or another. They make a fuck tonne of money.

    Ecosystem makes sense but they need to dump the Wii name. Nintendo NX is fine. Add Entertainment System on the end. In fact call it the Nintendo Nes X.

    3ds back compat is a must.

    I would like a hybrid hand held/home system but i suspect it will be a home console with an iOS ipad/iPhone style ability to play software on both systems (new 4ds or whatever) from a single download.

    I think the thing that people are overlooking is that there was no mention of the replacement to club Nintendo at e3 which everyone was expecting as the previous promotion dies out in September.

    Whatever that replacement is I guarantee its NX optimised

    It's a good point as it falls squarely in the near future hitzone.

    On the otherhand it must be intrinsically linked with mobile too but they said they weren't showing that at e3. I reckon NCL will have their own event(s) for their own megatons

    The whole direct and e3 strategy is about marketing on their terms. They reveal the stuff t they want when they can get 100 percent of coverage.

    Ah, Reggie
  • What the fuck even is an Amiibo. I don't get it. I must be old. I love my Wii U for Nintendo Land ghost game/mario chase/sweet game. For me to buy new Nintendo Console it needs to be some new game experience like that.

    I was thinking that.

    Like a super sophisticated Gameboy that can take phone calls and plug into anything (tv etc).
    The OS will make iOS look like the Atari 2600 BIOS.

    It's a toy that lets you play some extra things on your games.
  • I'm kinda disappointed theres going to be a new console so soon to be honest.

    I like the Wii U, but can see why its generally been a commercial flop in the grand scheme of things.

    Third Party support and distributing key IP's are an absolute must next time round.
  • Nah, mate. They're collectible figurines!! :)

    They're not gonna stop, so rather than going bankrupt, I think I'll just buy the really nice ones and characters I like.
    "But enough talk. HAVE AT YOU!"
  • You poor deluded bastards.
  • Presumably, big 3rd party support means making a console of similar spec to XBone and PS4, including a standard control system.

    But it'd be surprising if they went back to direct competition, so it's probably going to remain mostly 1st party based.

    If that's the case, they need to be releasing much more stuff, and the hybrid handheld/home console would be ideal. Smaller games of lower tech, but all the teams working on games for that one thing to create a decent size software library. They might also want to aim it at the diehard fans they have left, so concentrate on new Metroids, F-Zeros etc.

    Really though, I don't think either of those things will happen, and they'll just do something rubbish instead.
  • The vocal die hards are assholes and dwindling and want boring shite. They had their chances at the windwaker twilight princess debacle and then refused to buy into a console which had all the Nintendo core IPs at launch.

    Anyone expecting the new console to appeal to "hardcore" (eurgghh gtfo) gamers is going to be massively disappointed.
  • The thing that is bizarre is that these people got into games not knowing what the fuck a zelda was or Mario was. It was the complete lack of expectation that gave them the strongest hit.
  • These are hardcore gamer titles.

    CoD and FIFA are for the masses.
