        I can’t wait for Nintendo to showcase this. If Nintendo truly breaks away from what they did with Wii & Wii U to cater towards a more hardcore audience, I will probably buy day one. [cool]

          Well we’ll have to wait until after E3 now.

            I’m glad it’s pushed up to March because fuck all that holiday fever

            But also fuck not at least revealing it at E3

            I keep saying, it’s dumb to keep surprises

              I’m interested to see how this turns out. I’m guessing there’s a demand still for Nintendo consoles? I mean I love Mario games still

                It’s pretty stupid to have nothing at E3. They must have hit a roadblock with NX. I think March is optimistic. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s pushed to October.

                2016 is literally a write-off. Absolutely nothing. Mario Kart isn’t even selling consoles. The ratio of Mario Kart owners to Wii U owners is almost 1:1. They must have a hell of a lot of savings.

                    I’m not surprised they won’t be at E3, they haven’t been for the last few years, they did their own convention down the street from E3 while E3 was on iirc.

                        Nintendo NX Will Help Industry To Grow, Take A Lot Of Casual Players Back, Says Ubisoft CEO

                        During Ubisoft’s financial conference call for the first quarter of fiscal year 2016/2017, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot talked about the Nintendo NX, stating that what they have seen so far of the console is really great. Guillemot also notes how having this machine coming is going to help the industry growing as well as take a lot of casual players back in the industry. This final statement is definitely interesting, as it seems to suggest that the console will have some sort of feature that will attract casual players, like the Wii console did a few years back.

                          The Wii and WiiU have kinda felt like an ‘also ran’ against the juggernauts of Sony and Microsoft with their more powerful machines and myriad of 3rd party titles. I’d like to see Nintendo make a more powerful console that could compete on all levels.

                            It’s USB powered but the Aus release won’t come with a power source. You can essentially use any USB power supply but I’m guessing there’ll be a minimum current draw so old one’s might not do the job.

                            Typical for an Aus release, though!

                              @bbking you’re talking about the NX or mini NES re-release :P

                                My console needs are well serviced by Xbox and PS4 so all I’m really looking to Nintendo for is a powerful handheld. If the latest rumours about NX are true it suits me nicely. [yep]

                                  Yeah, I am more interested in NX than I am in PS4.5 and Scorpio.

                                    Yeah I agree….a nice powerful portable device would be sweet.

                                    The tegra Pascal x2 rumours would be nice to see into fruition. Especially if it has the SCD in the dock to boost power again. I’ve read reports the Pascal x2 in the new automated cars push 8 TFLOPS.

                                    Though I can’t see it happening and the NX being in the Nintendo affordable price range.

                                            A product that seems very similar to what the NX is rumoured to be.
                                            Now I’ve seen such a product I’m not sure that this what I want the NX to be.

                                              imo it’ll be thereabouts. Won’t be surprised if that’s basically what it is.

                                                I don’t get the removable controls bit to be honest. At first I thought it would be a cool concept for a portable console to allow some sort of local co-op, but any version of removable controls I’ve seen look uncomfortable at best.

                                                Anyone else getting a feeling that Nintendo are going to announce the thing the day before it comes out? Surely in this day and age the secret couldn’t be kept up until that point though.

                                                In reality, I’m guessing it will be delayed due to a lack of software on release.

                                                  They won’t. Doesn’t work like that anymore because of the internet. Also, I doubt investors would be happy with so limited marketing investment to get the console active. They will announce and reveal it at the end of October imo, and release in March 2017.

                                                      Dodgy news I know, but the thought is out there.

                                                      Highly doubtful we’ll see an October launch. You’d think they’d announce it before Christmas. It’s out there now and they have to confirm launch details to appease investors, of which Nintendo is tied more to than diehard fans would care to admit.

                                                      The logic behind it being announced in the Direct seems plausible, but I doubt it’s because of the anniversary. I just think it’s because it’s Direct, and they will of course us that to spruke big new games and hardware.
