Nintendo QOL platform, what are it's specs, what is different?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo QOL platform, what are it's specs, what is different?

With Nintendo looking to set up a new third pillar in the Nintendo ecosystem to exist beside the Wii U & 3DS, like the DS was originaly with the Gamecude & Gameboy, what should we expect from the Nintendo QL?

Is it going to be a new console with a more casual focus trying to regain the Wii market once again.  Will it be a low power general purpose set top box with a focus on media, casual games, & fitness?  Will it be a more traditional higher powered console designed to edge in on the main console market that the Wii U missed?  What is going to be unique enough about this new platform that it warrents a purchase over that of a Wii U, Xbone or PS4?

I hope to incorporate it in my life! I wonder if it comes with better excercises than Wii Fit. I need to tone my muscles a little bit.

I still don't get what the hell this is... Like, I was thinking it would be like a watch or something but then they said its non-wearable... So does that mean its a home console? Or an app? Or like something portable?

Maybe its the second coming of Rob?

It will be a Balance Board with all the Wii Fit U unsold copies.

Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

One of the biggest speculating points about this platform for me, is if its compatible with Wii U games. So my prediction is, the QOL platform will be a (discless/all digital rebranding of) Wii U w/o the gamepad essentially, so I expect the same internal chipset as far as specs. Wii U is the "hardcore" console and QOL will try to bring casuals back. Price tag: $199

You might find the last strategy meeting interesting. The QoL is actually not a console platform, but a business platform.

Mario branded suppositories. You heard it here first.

Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

The Nintendo QoL systems arent for hardcore gamers, and maybe not even gamers at all, so just forget about it.

I'm not sure.

The only thing I can think of is it will be the final product of the Vitality Sensor thing from 2009. I don't think it's supposed to be a gaming console or replace the Wii U. It'll probably play some games to make taking your blood pressure "fun" or something but that's about it.

I personally hope it's somehow compatible with the Wii U. Like, you don't need a Wii U to use it because it's a standalone product but can be used as a Wii U peripheral as well.

It'll be at E3 so less than 2 months until we know. 

Would be fun if it was diving related :D
