    $150-200, and much stronger than the wii u.
    My guess is something to do with AMD and k12, or power8 soc(quite unlikely).
    Hope there is Metroid.

    A cheaper console would be a step in the right direction... but stronger than the Wii U but cheaper than a 3DS? I don't think so. :salt:

    Somewhere you can never find.
    There is still a chance that NX is a 3rd system and Wii U and 3ds will continue to get more game support. Remember, Nintendo teamed up with DeNa a mobile android game company.

    i wouldn't count on it having any of that. what i do know is your supposed to be able to play mobile games on it. so that's making it sound scary right there :P

    That's because Nintendo has done nothing except announce that something was coming, and that it was codenamed NX. A lot of people have been desperately clinging to vague quotes that don't even mention the NX, or poorly worded articles quoting those that know as much as the rest of us, but in the long run, everybody is groping around in the dark equally.

    As for this rumor, someone is trololo'ing. More powerful than the Wii U for $150? Top lel.

    Reggie let slip that NX was a home console during E3.

    It was one of those things where Reggie said "the next home console is being worked on", and people assumed it must have been the NX because we know nothing about it so anything that could even vaguely relate to it must be true.

    Don't remember him saying "Next home console" but I did hear him mentioning that they will reveal NX details next year.

    I reckon it could be a hybrid handheld/home console. The part that stays at home would probably act like a thin client.

    "We’ve also said publicly that we are already hard at work on our next home console and that’s another element we’ll be talking about much later."

    Well the Wii U has a price of $300 and is 5-6 years older than the NX.
    The Wii U Gamepad is IIRC $150, making the actual Wii U console $150
    Now lets say that the actual NX console is $150, probably $200 to account for a new controller (without a screen)
    This means that the NX will use the same priced hardware as the Wii U, however 5 years newer and for $200
    This won't be overly significant, we will be lucky for it to be as powerful as the PS4 and you can bet there's no way they're going to have 8gb or RAM.
    Nintendo have struggled with long development times on the Wii U due to the higher graphics, so not only would they not want to use a high spec console but it would be detrimental to the fans by making them wait even longer for games than we have had to this generation.
    I think it is fantastic to have such a cheap console, because really all I use nintendo systems for is to play first party titles, so it's not worth it to spend so much on a system that I will only be playing several games on.

    It's apparently a successor of the 3DS and wii u. I think it'd be cool if they made a home console, but let users do some "remote play" thing with a handheld device (phone-like device or gamepad with screen) (like TeamViewer for PC) but except optomized much better for gaming. I think that'd be pretty cool, but it's probably not anything like this.
