    I guess it'll take until E3 before any hopes will be crushed (eg: the final name will be far more stupid than NX*). And with the deal with DeNa just today, it would be ludicrous to just tease a new console in the process. So no...I seriously doubt it will actually be a new console. In fact, if it wasn't for that "it'll involve fresh hardware", then I'd just think they were talking about their deal on mobile games to begin with. At most, it'll be something like a portable wiiu or a nintendo-dedicated smartphone.



    *on a rather funny note: 'nx' can be pronounced as 'niks', which is Dutch for 'nothing'. It actually sums up my expectations quite nicely. :P

    It seems silly for them to try to life support three consoles at once. They're already stretched kinda thin between two.

    Drop the toxic Wii brand, get rid of retarded waggle and tablet controller gimmicks and bring something out that is powerful and easy enough to develop for that it is actually relevant post 2016 and you might not have another Wii U level disaster on your hands.

    Smartphone? Na they clearly state it's a dedicated game console. We don't know whether it's a successor of 3DS or Wii U. I'm going with neither, looks to me to be a third pillar. How they support three gaming devices remains to be seen.

    They won't, it's more likely this new dedicated game system is the 3DS successor. Unfortunately this new membership thing with the easy of acess from any cellphone will mean we will never have club nintendo like prizes.

    My guess would be a gaming tablet.

    PS: A small tablet with physical gamepad buttons.

    Here's my input nobody asked for:

    -Original Content on Smartphones is not a good idea. Controls will be horrible, gameplay will be oversimplified for touch controls, lack of physical releases, and Nintendo collectors with a passionate distaste for Smartphones like me are going to bust a nut.

    -Nintendo working on a next gen console- I'll wait and see. If if means we'll get a next-gen 3D Mario that's not in the vein of 3D World then I'm on board. If it means it's a kind of Nintendo branded Smartphone then I'm over 9000% done. If it's like the Wii U with better specs minus the Game Pad but with it's own exclusives, I'll be pissed that I have to buy a new console so soon after the Wii U but I'll eventually warm up to it if it's promising.

    Well, Nintendo's competitors are already very established in this space and I think it makes sense for them to make the jump. The translation/execution of their games to the platform however will be key to their success.

    Because peripherals are definitely the way out here.

    What I don't seem to understand is WTF is stopping them from making a MORE POWERFUL machine than PS4?

    Just make that machine powerful and easy to develop for. It will sell a lot due to Mario, Zelda, etc., and third party developers can just jump in.


    Highly doubt it since they just released the N3DS.

    One simple word - Tradition. And I think they pride themselves on making fun games that do not need to be graphically intensive which is the biggest reason I personally like them.

    I wouldn't expect them to release this for another 3-4 years at the earliest.

    "Service"? Welp, I guess this is the last generation of Nintendo for me. Had a good run, but I'm not gonna support turning gaming into television.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they made such a tablet. Nintendo expressed their next dream after 3d is to have games playable on both a console and handheld without having to rebuy them and/or remake them. I could see them jamming the Wii-U's hardware into a tablet and having additional arm processor in their for advanced emulation of the N3DS/NN3DS.
