Nintendo NX more and more looks like 2016. thing

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo NX more and more looks like 2016. thing

Sure looks like. 4 years is a super short lifespan for the WII U though.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

If it did come out in 2016, I think me and a lot of other people would lose trust in Nintendo. I mean, if the Wii U would have as short of a lifespan as 3.5-4 years, how could anyone know for sure that the same won't happen for the NX?

You think like people lost trust in Microsoft after original Xbox!?

I think 4 years is ok for commercial failure like Wii U, and Nintendo released and still releasing some of the best Nintendo games ever.

This sorta makes it sound like NX is a portable to me.


I hope it is!

the wii u is not getting games anyway, so they should kill the damn console asap.

So long WiiU. Hardly knew you.

I would avoid buying NX early.
Not even 3 full years into WiiU and games for its successor already announced.

Thiss should allow me to grab a WiiU on the cheap earlier than expected though. Hopefully it at least gets Zelda.

I don't understand bolded.

WiiU launched in 2012.
- I own 27 games, over half are exclusives, and another 25 VC titles.
- There are 5 others I still plan on buying; not including further VC content.
- Never ran out of things to play.
- It had full BC with Wii so lots of replay there too.

I really don't get how anyone can feel bad with the value of the system. If you don't like Nintendo games, then why buy a Nintendo system?

If NX has full BC with WiiU, then this is no different than buying a new phone every other year. Do you feel cheated every time a new phone model or tablet is released? Why are we all so stuck on the idea that a new model can't release until the old is 5 years? How many revisions of the same console happen every year or other year? Why are those not counted as a bad thing too?

I eagerly look forward to NX and the new content / ideas it will bring.

Doesn't matter to me what you bought. If this is a console successor why would I invest hundreds of I see clear as day that if things don't go the way they want they will just pull the plug early?

It's not difficult at all to understand my point of view.

 

Its the same reason I waited until 2008 to get my 360.

 

Edit - Don't misunderstand. I love Nintendo games, but let us just say this NX costs $400 at launch. I would want more than just Nintendo games, especially at that price point, not to mention I would want to know they truly intend to have 3rd parties on board this time. 

Nothing wrong with a cautious approach, even if you beg to differ or claim to not understand it.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)

I hope it's not portable. Too many portables from Nintendo. I hope it's a regular console. I'll be picking it up on the first day of launch...as usual. Love Nintendo!

If NX is a console releasing in 2016 with similar or lower specs compared to PS4, I expect it to sell even worse than WiiU. If it's a heldheld it makes more sense to have a 2016 release. If It's a hybrid I expect it to have lackluster sales everywhere but japan. I hope Nintendo is smart enough to push the release to 2017 or later for a console.



You know it is indeed possible to release an NX version a year or 2 after it comes out. I mean Dragon Quest X is coming to PS4 almost 2 years after its launch on Wii/3DS/WiiU



"I think it will be the HDS"-Me in regards to Nintendo's next handheld.

I'll buy NX day one if it has a game that I'm hyped for. But I wouldn't know until maybe early next year or even around E3.

Nintendo aiming affordable hardware with NX, so probably somewhere around $250.
