    No NX thread. I know this section is dead, but shame on you guys. :ippy




    Not sure if I'll get hyped yet. But I personally like the WiiU.

    Nintendo is going to have to try extremely hard to capture the interest of gamers that completely skipped the Wii U. A system comparable with PS4/XB1 and their usual first-party games won't be enough.

    Wii U is the first Nintendo console I skipped since the Super Nintendo

    if they make this backwards compatible, chances are I'll check it out. if not, I'm gonna pass again

    I assume we'll hear about it early next year, but it'll release in 2017.

    But Nintendo is going to need some real good stuff if they want the NX to do better than the Wii U did. I didn't hate the gamepad, but I'm hoping that the NX just uses a normal game controller and not something with a screen or waggling in it. If it's backwards compatible with Wii U games then i can see being able to use your gamepad with it. But no NX games that require it.

    And this time, actually advertise the damn thing.

    I just hope they keep their controller options. I'm too invested in the pro controller.

    So, the next Zelda game is obviously going to be a launch NX game just like Twilight Princess. How about Pikmin 4? That shit is pretty much done, according to Miyamoto.

    Anyway, they only fucking need to do 3 things. Shoot the guy who named the WiiU, get a console that's comparable to Xbone and PS4 and shit out games. Games everywhere. Shit, they don't really need to go above the graphic fidelity of the WiiU, they just need to be a valid platform for third party.

    2017 release? Seems a bit too late in my opinion unless it is pretty early in the year. They will probably try to push for a late 2016 release.

    I wonder what'll happen if this console turns out more powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One. Like think mid-tier gaming pc that can do 1080p 60fps with antialiasing and postprocessing. In no universe do I think Nintendo would ever come out guns blazing like that, but this is a hypothetical scenario. Think Sony and Microsoft would jump on new consoles so shortly after having just released their current gen ones? Or would they ride it out and let Nintendo have the strongest console?

    Assuming it hypothetically happened...putting in resources to pump out a new $400 console would be too much for their consumer base. they best course of action is to just attempt to put out the more appealing exclusives and console features

    Jumping to another console would be a horrible move for them. It'll just come down to who has the better exclusives and such.

    Also with the head start and 3rd party support Sony has? They really aren't going to be feeling any hurt from the NX.

    l'm curious but far from hyped

    l'm a huge nintendo fanboy who bought pretty much all their systems virtual boy excepted, l enjoyed the wii u for the most part but l'm not going to blindly buy that shit if some conditions aren't met

    it has to be powerful enough to easily get ps4 ports and mostly it has to have a very solid launch line up, not NINTENDOLAND and another fucking nsmb game

    l'm especially going to look at their next 3d mario, if it's not as ambitious and fresh as galaxy was back then l'm ignoring the system entirely, fuck 3d world and the entire design philosophy behind it

    Never understood the really low Wii U sales. I mean, it's lower than Ps Vita, which most western publications label as dead.

    It has some good games I'm psyched to play though, hopefully they are compatible with Nintendo NX but I'm very doubtful.

    They'll need to release NX with decent lineup, better hardware specs than ps4 and xbone, good price and make it much easier for developers to make games for the console if they want a huge spike in sales imo.

    Good library means bupkiss if you can't be assed to advertise the damn thing.

    Also, as much as gamers will swear otherwise, graphics and power of the console does, in fact, matter.

    They really need to revive some of the old classics like Earthworm Jim, Earthbound, and maybe even bring back Custokm Robo, Pac-man.

    New IPs are nice but they aren't even thinking of some of the gems they have in their pockets. Hell, a new Pokemon Snap for the Wii U would have been perfect with the gamepad as a camera....

    I like the new approach but my issue with nintendo this past decade were these underpowered consoles they keep trying to sell to people.

    Nintendo has to play ball with third parties at least up to a point. Produce a console that the latest engines can run seamlessly on, use an architecture on the development side that makes porting easy. After you iron out those basics then come with the innovation. It's just that simple.

    If they do all of that and they still fail then i guess there's no real hope for them to come back.

    Oh yeah forgot the most important thing....steady flow of games.

    lol can you image i forgot that. Man this generation.

    who the hell will buy it if it's weaker than PS4?

    it's the only choice they have if they don't want to fail miserably again

    Handheld/Console ecosystem sounds great on paper. But dat mobile game too stronk. Would be too big of a risk if they sacrificed power for that.

    Yeah but there's no point in making it that much more powerful because just like ps2 era, the games would still be bottlenecked by the weaker consoles because they have the higher marketshare.

    So all that power would essentially be unused a good percentage of the time.

    PS4 has basically won this generation already.

    Nintendo stopped being competitive with the other consoles as soon as they released the Wii. This is not news. Stop expecting impressive stuff from Nintendo.
