    This sounds like an OnLive kind of device or a standalone graphics card that can connect to the Wii U in some way who knows.

    They said it will not be apart of the Wii family name. So I doubt they will make something to enhance something they said this will not be. I think I said that right lol

    before anyone gets too excited, be aware that patents alone don't mean they will happen.

    which I think is not going to be a good thing since this has a low chance of ever making it into the final product, much like any other patent with a new feature.

    i'm pretty sure NX is going to be android based. in some shape or form. or at least have android compatibility or so. nintendo's moving heavily to the mobile market after all.

    I don't like the look of this. I don't want cloud, cluster or download gaming. I don't want a modular system. I don't want DRM eShop-only stuff. I just want a console I can put games in and play them. So actually, what I want is just more games for WiiU ;)

    If they go discless I will be sad. That means no special bundles :(

    Discless will mean no purchase for me. I like buying games I can actually hold. With my actual hands.

    I'd still get it because will Nintendo and next gen sounds good to me. Would I play it as much as Wii U or buy non-nx exclusive games that are on the Wii U and NX then no. Physically buying games is the best.

    I don't think they'd ever go discless (if you can show evidence, please do).

    here's a might-be-related article: http://www.polygon.com/2013/6/13/44...rried-about-used-game-sales-make-better-games

    I personally am pretty much all-digital at this point (never gone past two Wii U disc games and a handful of 3DS) so I wouldn't mind a discless/cartridge-less system. but I know it's a real concern for a lot of people.

    Yes I am aware. However, you said discless not completely physical media-less

    I did mention cartridge-less. regardless, there's a low change Nintendo will ever get rid of physical games of any format (which is what I mean even with "discless").
