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?

"Will it be a more traditional higher powered console designed to edge in on the main console market that the Wii U missed?"

I think you missed the whole "this is a QOL system, not a gaming system" thing so I'll bring you up to speed. The QOL platform is a QOL system, not a gaming system. Other than that we know pretty much nothing about it...

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


I thought it was hardware realted too?

Yeah, it's hardware related for sure, but it almost certainly isn't a gaming console.

It's a new business platform which is centered on quality of life, which will involve hardware and software to support the business, but it's not a console. (unless something was miscommunicated or is changed as time advances).

Below is one of the quotes and diagrams from the strategy meeting given in January.

Iwata:

"We will also take on the challenge of expanding into a new business area.

We will attempt to establish a new platform business with which we can leverage our strengths, but which is independent from our video game platform business."

This thread is pretty dumb just by virtue of people not understanding the basic concept of the QOL platform and throwing out random implausible ideas

I guess it's no surprise from the same people who do stuff like create Super Mario PS4 bundles and make "PS4U" logos, lol

Nintendo can do much more than just video game stuff, just like how Sony and Microsoft do much more than just Playstation and Xbox stuff. While Sony keeps losing money and laying off workers, Nintendo is hiring, expanding their business, and is totally free of debt, lol

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.

Are all your comments going to be like this? I fricking hope so, lol.

I thought it was going to be a device specifically based around weight loss? Thats what I understood since Iwata mentioned "Health" So I figured it'd be a cheaper platform and weaker then the WiiU. A 200$ device that was built around weight loss that would receive small games every month based around getting a better physique? :o



PSn - greencactaur
Nintendo Switch FC - SW - 5152 - 6393 - 5140 Please feel free to add me :)

i think the only thing we know for sure is we aren't the target market.



I could see them releasing an improved Wii Fit thats not tied to a console. Maybe it would include fitness and diet apps that can be downloaded to it.

Another possible thing is the children's learning tablet that was rumored awhile back. A tablet with fun little educational games featuring Nintendo mascots.

These two products could help them regain the Wii Fit/Brain Training crowd they had on Wii/DS.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

I don't even know what to expect. But I very much doubt it will be anything to do with games, it is supposed to be a '3rd pillar' for Nintendo not a replacement for one of the others.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Okay, then what is the basic concept, and why is it so different that it can't be done with the Wii U?  Nintendo has traditionally been a games & entertainment company (& love hotels), so it would be expected that their new device will be a games & entertainment device also, even if it also has "health" benifits, so it's completely fine to speculate about just what the hell it is.

I don't understand the bit about Sony loosing money & Nintendo being dept free, not that I don't think it's true, just it confuses me that you felt the need to say that.

& STFU about my avatar, it's better then yours. :D

That's how the DS started out, now where's the Gameboy brand today?
