    I agree, especially if they add a 3DS slot. Hell, I'd be very tempted!

    That said...

    It wouldn't and can't be an Ouya. There is a reason why most those games are under $25 from the start. Unless you just want Nintendo and 3rd party quality to suffer and mobile games with more underhanded practices, it is not going to happen.

    Stop wishing that Nintendo will every have a console that's comparable to Sony and Microsoft. They are out of that game, therefore their game prices need to reflect that. I doubt that games on the next Nintendo console will be at OUYA level but they damn sure wont be at PS4 level.

    I shall have to look up these new patents later but it seems Nintendo Power did not feel like providing numbers or anything.

    Anyway did the DSi ever speak to the Wii? Better yet did it ever use the Wii as a kind of hotspot to connect to? If so then they sunk it themselves.

    Otherwise the psp/vita connectivity with the various playstations would have to be all the prior art.

    " Using sound as a sampling mechanism for reading compressed data"
    So I imagined modems/phone couplers, cassette tape based consoles and even TV shows that ended with such things for older devices... Also amusing http://hackaday.com/2014/12/31/running-nintendo-ds-unsigned-code-with-audio/

    " Real-time changes to the environment"
    If Nintendo manage to get a patent on the idea of a stateful world or a world that scales in response to network driven commands then I am probably going to write off the US patent office for good. If nothing else gambling places have used network driven difficulty adjustments for years and years, and I would love to see a lawyer argue the difference between gaming (as in gambling) and gaming (as in computer/video gaming).

    The power gap like the Wii isn't going happen again for their main console. Just because it or maybe the NX isn't as powerful as PS4, doesn't mean you can just knock down the value and work of their games.

    NX Might be closer to PS4 but what happens the PS5 comes out? Are we clearly going to have two consoles in one generation or will the NX be the start of next gen. See my point? There will always be a power game. If not always then at least for the next two console generations.

    Unless Nintendo makes the NX 4K. If they make the NX 4K it will essentially be just as powerful as a PS5 and will be able to survive 2 generations, both 8th Generation and 9th.
    One console fo 2 gens. Thats the only way.

    That wont happen either. A 4K game console, I'm talking 4K resolution gaming and not just 4K up scaling and output will probably cost more than a PS4 and that would be murder. After the 3DS debacle and the issues with Wii U, I doubt that Nintendo wants to release a console with an initial price higher than $250 USD

    Why are people assuming it to be digital-only? It's not like Nintendo even has a good online service to begin with.

    Same could have been said about SONY but they changed things around with PS4. The Wii U's online service isn't horrid, it's the damn execution. Going into your friends list and then being shot to the Miiverse when you decide to send a message makes no damn sense. It just makes sending a message twice as long because you have to open two damn programs to send a damn message.

    Online on PS3 was always a joy, I loved playing RDR, GTA, FIFA and plenty of other games online without lag and hey, to send PMs it wasn't restricted to a dumb social community like it is on the Wii U.

    It'll cost roughly 800 to mass produce a 4K Console running on AMD parts, which means if Nintendo is willing to absorb 200-300 per unit like Sony did during PS3 era, they can release NX4K at around 500 at launch.

    This up to Nintendo, we have no control over this, it cost money to play with the big boys. But the only way to solve your dilema is by releasing NX4K.

    OR - by having traditional gamers FINALLY realize that Nintendo is and has been for a long time, DONE with traditional gaming. The Sony and Microsoft crowd is not the crowd Nintendo cares about and people need to realize that Nintendo gaming is a different beast. This console will be a lightweight, under powered but more powerful than Wii U device shooting for a under 300 dollar price range. Many of you will be mad and I'll be sitting here eating ice cream and saying, I told you so. :) Cheers!

    I agree Nintendo will never be top dog again, they will probably always sit at around 10million userbase from now on. I don't even know if its even worth for them to keep doing consoles if thats the future.

    But I would commend them if they had the ballz to make a 4K NX. It would be the most surprising move in gaming history.

    One of my favourite Terry Pratchett lines is "when a wizard is tired of looking for broken glass in his dinner, [...], he is tired of life.", I wonder if a similar phrase could be constructed and valid here.

    Then it wouldn't be a 3DS player, it would be something like the GameBoy Tower from Pokémon Stadium. I'm sure modern gamers would love to wait a couple of minutes for a game to load.

    Not even the PS5 will run true 4K games, especially if it is meant to release so soon like some people think. Btw, 10 million+ isn't something to just scoff at.
    Unless they plan to somehow release a ps5 that is significantly more powerful and cost efficient in the next 2 years than I'm sure they will be fine. Considering they haven't really gotten off the ground, I'm sure they going another 10 years.


    I'm fine the way it is, but DeNa is meant to help. They could call in more people to help too.

    That might be the price, especially if it has no disc drive, but that doesn't invalidate what I just wrote. Probably $250 - $300 since under $250 is handheld territory and too low.

    Under 250 is handheld territory? Hell under 170 is. Remember when Nintendo tried to release a handheld above 200? All hell broke loose. Lol 250 to me is the sweet spot for a console.

    I'm sure $200 fine. People were fine with Vita price until they found out about the SD cards.
