All those that are talking about power they don't know a shit , ps1 , ps2 and Wii had less power than other consoles and dominated the market.
People care about games , if they cared only for power they all would have owned gaming pc instead of buying weak consoles.

Apart from the fact that we'll be able to play games on it, we know NOTHING about NX. Any speculations are simply pointless. And people here are already saying that they don't like it ?! WTF! You don't even know what it is ! Jeez

When power determines third-party support it does make a difference.

I'm not buying it due to Nintendo's poor support for Wii U. Wii U wasn't worth the $300 I spent on it.

But it doesn't. The average PC is more powerful than Xbox One and PS4 yet it get's less third party support and those that it gets are broken for the most time. DS was less powerful than PSP but it got more support, the same thing with 3DS vs Vita. PS2 was the weakest console of 6th generation but it got the best third party support and the list goes on.

PC gets better third-party support than PS4 and XB1 and only a few games on PC are broken (Unless you're talking about multiplats broken on every system).

Handhelds are a different case, Nintendo franchises have enough pull to bring the audience to their handhelds.

PS2 wasn't that much weaker than Xbox and Gamecube and had a superior disc format over Gamecube. Wii U on the other hand is a generation behind PS4 and XB1 in terms of power. If NX can barely match PS4 it will certainly be a generation behind PS5 and XB2.

Main reasons why Wii U dont have third party support is terrible sale and not good architecture for porting. NX easily could fix those two things.

Terrible sales is as much a consequence of the lack of third party support as it is a cause, and the porting was hard also in part because the console was underpowered, so if you were to release a PS4/XOne game you couldnt go all out on it if you intended to port it to the WiiU cause it wouldnt handle the game at all.



My opinion is that if Wii U had the library of 3DS added to its library now it would have double sales.
But i also think the comments that NX should have x86 architecture for easy ports have a point.

If the NX goes Arm route, and go mobile having ps3+ performance, then it will ve very close to high end smartphones and tablets. Todays Smartphones and tablets have graphic cards that have ps3 performance. Two years from now, they will be even faster. Casual gamers will play on that platforms, not in NX. Maybe japanese will. Hardcore gamers will be on MSft or Sony side.


If those same hard core gamers are so concerned with power why don't they just go with a PC. Hell, hardware is cheap enough that you could make a $500-600 computer and get the superior experience. I never understood that about the people who ragged on the Wii U's lack of power. 

I would also mention that steam machines are also in Sony and Microsoft's rear view mirror. It's not an immediate threat, but eventually more games will be compatible, the operating system will be improved, and with the right price cuts, they will begin to increasingly siphon off sales long term from both Microsoft and Sony. The console market is going to be very crowded.
