    When Reggie, the president of Nintendo of America, was asked yesterday about how he felt the NX stacks up against the new Xbox and Playstation consoles, he responded in an expected (but still disappointing) way.


    I'm sure that we at the 'temp have a lot to say about this statement. Let us know your opinions below!

    All of what he has to say is only valid and true if games are actually made for the platform.
    If the "experience" he promises is lackluster than it has neither great hardware, nor great games and thats a recipe for disaster.

    As I've said in another thread, that doesn't necessarily indicate anything. All this means is that Nintendo is not focusing on putting tech specs first, it's focusing on putting games first. This does not, however, mean that they will put out a console with sub-par specifications

    Somwhere you can never find.
    personally I prefer quality content over performance, Nintendo never gets to be the top in specs but the games are fun and enjoyable. I just hope this doesn't push away third party developers.

    Maybe if they focused on a stronger console and produced less big hits themselves, more indie developers would want the stronger hardware.

    I'd always prefered to have a good game in my hand that a full hand plenty of stupid games UNFINISHED, with lots of DLC to end it.
    And for the moment, Nintendo is the only one who provides me what i want.

    Nintendo, go ahead!!

    I can only say...
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    J/K sorry.

    I totally see this "For us it's not about the specs" becoming some new Nintendo based meme... in a bad way.

    Well it's kinda reassuring that Nintendo like to base their consoles around the content that arrives/will arrive onto it and such; that's understandable, but what about the developers and companies who desire to find/use a really powerful console to create even greater content? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    For me, I feel there are both some clear, logical aspects, but also some illogical aspects...
    But hey! It's mostly Nintendo's decision at the end of the day; what can I do...

    So what I am hearing is, another Nintendo system with no 3rd party support because it's going to be grossly inferior to the other systems.

    Games are all that matters.

    I'm still playing Zelda and the Wand of Gamelon on my old Phillips CD-i as we speak! Go Nintendo, replicate this timeless masterpiece!

    He's betting the barn on solely Zelda and forgetting the entire "third party" effect creating unpowered hardware does. It's a stupid move as Nintendo should at least match the specs of the other consoles otherwise the NX is going to flop just like the WiiU did. Dumb, dumb dumb.

    First party content can only carry you so far, as the Wii U proved. All Nintendo has to do is to make a console on par with the current competitors, so that third party companies can release games across the big 3 platforms easily. From there on out, Nintendo just has to focus on fixing it's online functions/friend system/etc and they would be golden. Ridiculous.

    Will they ever learn. It sounds like they're making the same exact mistakes that caused the Wii U to flop. Disappointing to say the least
