Because Wii U 3rd party support died in Wii Us first year!?

So what, they will have 3 consoles on the market? WiiU, 3DS and NX?

NX is replacing something.


Both. Iwata mentioned they are hardwaroking on NX to not be a simple replace to both Wii U and 3DS.

Really the Dragon Quest announcement means nothing about the release date. Dragon quest X was announced in 2008 and it wasn't released until 2012 so that was a four year span between announcement to release. DQXI had a three year period from its official announcement to release. DQXI will not be releasing until about 2018-to-2019 at the earliest. Remember this is Square Enix, the ones who announced Kingdom hearts 3 over two years ago.


DQXI tentative release date is 2016.

Because no console before ever got ports of 1 to 3 years old games... Oh wait.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

I still don't think the PS4 version will make 2016, 3DS will though.

Why to announce a port so soon?

Both are supposedly coming at the same time.

I doubt it going by the videos shown tbh, SE would say that they will but the PS4 version looks to need a lot more time from what was shown, 3DS was much further along in development in comprison.



That would suck but it does look like. I'm still being optimistic and hoping for a 2017 release.
Anyways, I will wait to buy the NX and only get it if it sells well, because if it sells poorly, then Nintendo will stop supporting it too after 3 years.

The "its all about 2015" stance at E3 certainly also helps point in that direction. I think Smash Bros was their final effort at getting a viable baseline going for Wii U.

This year is about shifting as much inventory as theycan before having to unveil NX publically. (Don't want to needlessly impact Q4 15 sales).



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

Offcourse they are hard working on next home console, Nintendo always start working on new next console right after launch, but Reggies statement does not mean that NX is a home console.

Nobody from Nintendo still did not confirmed what exatly is NX, only it's confirmed that is a hardware.

Everyone starts R&D for the next console soon after they release one. What's interesting about his quote is the "we’ve also said publicly" part.
Even though Sony began R&D for PS4 right after they released PS3 in 2006, they did not publically say it existed until 2013.
Reggie is saying that they have publically announced that they are working on their next home console. And the only public announcement I know of that fits this, is the NX announcement.

Further more, Metroid's producer Tanabe said this: "If we started [Metroid] for Wii U now, it would likely take three years or so. So it would likely now be on Nintendo's NX console,".
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-06-17-next-proper-metroid-prime-would-likely-now-be-on-nx

He calls the NX a console, and more importantly, said that a home console WiiU Metroid would likely end up on the NX console instead. That certainly suggests that NX is a home console, as it doesn't make sense to move development of a home console game to something else. Especially without explaining why, since this was an answer to the fans, and it would be impossible for them to discern that he is refering to something other than a home console from his reply.

People can specuate in different ways, but to say that nothing suggests it's a home console is simply not true.
You're using the term "confirmed" in the end, and I agree that no one from Nintendo has confirmed this. But there's certainly comments that suggest it.
