    Tamaki runs a website and a video series about video game development. He's dug up all sorts of tech demos and concept art from his contacts, so he obviously knows people. I'm not saying that his word is gospel, but he isn't just some random guy spreading a rumor.

    The full tweet is, "The NX is definitely not aiming to compete with the likes of PS4 on a power level. Absolutely sure of that now."

    If you're going to post a topic in USN at least flesh it out a bit, don't just post a link to a tweet and leave it at that.

    Or, perhaps it's going to be more powerful? Frankly, this gen is all underpowered (at least when you compared to previous gens). We're still a year off before Nintendo gives out details. The "leaks" he's done for various other things were not nearly as far off from leak to announcement as this is.

    Maybe it's the New 4DS that I've been waiting for.

    I predict the NX will actually be two pieces of hardware. The NX console and the NX handheld, running the same OS.

    Does nobody understand that the machine manipulates space-time?

    Sweet! I feel that it's gunning for the NVidia shield crowd. I don't need overtly powerful consoles, just fun games!

    Well in an era where 1080p is becoming the standard I think that Ninty are making a mistake here. Perhaps they're rushing the hardware to minimise their losses from the WiiU.

    The non-powerful console, yes. The games, arguable.

    Behold the New 6DSi XL SP go & Knuckles featuring Dante from Devil May Cry.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    Obviously the NX wont compete with PS4, it will accompany it in the same way as the Wii U has until now. they know consumers nowdays are too smart to go Nintendo only :tpi:.

    Now talking more seriously this NX thing could be anything really, a portable or a home console or even a hybrid. let's think something like a PSP go where you can use the TV out and connect a DS3. but my guess is that something too techy for Nintendo, they had traveled the cheap path since the Wii in order to be the affordable option and something that can be portable and not at the same time sound too costly.

    If the NX is a console... and PS4 power level is nothing special.. Wii U is already underpowered . Nintendo go home your drunk.

    I guess I am more worried that this might just sink them lower than actually helping. I just bought a WiiU recently. I dont wanna buy another nintendo console...

    Yup... If that guy got that sure about the NX being underpowered (supposing that he knows what he's talking about), then that means that Nintendo is probably relying on another gimmick to compensate... ..What makes me even more worried.
