Please note, this is my prediction of what NX will be. Nonetheless, I will explain WHY i think this is at least plausible. 

This is not a leak or anything, just a prediction based on what we know so far.

 

NX:

NX will be released as different 2 consoles that work like Playstation Vita and Vita TV.

Both will have the same / almost the same Hardware. Both will run exactly the same Games. 

A modern ARM Chip will be used that will be similar to modern smartphone chips. The home console chips might be clocked higher to allow 1080p on TV; handheld might use 720p screen.

The performance will be similar to the performance of the wii u. Could be a little bit more or less powerfull.

Price: Less then 200€.

 

Explanations:

Nintendo wont go in direct competition with Ps4 / Xbox One. In mid cycle, that just doesnt work. The N64 was released alot later then the Ps1 and didnt had a chance as well. 

With modern online gaming, people are not getting only the "best" system, but the system their friends own (so they can play Call of Duty, GTA, The Division) together. With 60 Mio Ps4´s in the market in march 2017, chances are really bad that many people will get the NX over the Ps4. They wouldnt be able to play Call of Duty with their PS4 buddies, even if COD gets released on NX. The Wii U already prooved that people dont get 2 systems per gen anyway. So third party support is very unlikely.

Also: Nintendo tried third party support on Wii u but it failed. There is NOTHING that stoppes third party right now to release games like Fifa 17 on wii u, but wont happen. GTA 5, Metal Gear Solid 5, Dragon Age Inquisition, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Assassins Creed Rogue, Battlefield 5, Battlefield Hardline.. all that could be released on wii u (console is strong enough). Never happened. They wont try third party again.

Nintendo already talked about merging their handheld and home consoles in the future. There also was the "Fusion" concept. That would fit.

Powerfull Hardware (like Ps4) didnt work in a handheld. Handhelds cant use x86 CPUs right now, scince those need fences and/or are extremly expensive and weak (Intel Core M).

Modern ARM Chips (like Snaprdragin 810, Apple a9x) are about as powerfull as the Wii U and relativly cheap and can be used in a handheld without problems.

When Home console and handhelds are using the same hardware, Nintendo dont need anymore to split their development teams and can develop and release every game for both plattforms without even need to port it (ressources efficiency) (more games output).

Strong hardware (ps4 or better) also need ALOT more ressources for software development. Bigger worlds, more details, better graphics are possible, but that also need to be made. Modern games like Battlefront already proove that they lack alot content because its so damn expensive and ressource intensive to just create a single map.

Its easier to sell a cheap console as a secondary console (like 3ds) as to sell a expensive console (like wii u) as an secondary console.

Nintendo probl have no chances at the moment to make a console that will be successfull as a primary console.

Nintendo games are mostly cartoony and they work fine at a Wii U´s power level.

Cartoony Games on Ps4:

Cartoony Games on Wii U:

I just don't know what the NX will be.... It really has me baffled. I KNOW it won't be a super expensive powerhouse like some are expecting though.



If it's not the perfect bread toaster they are hyping up, this website is going to beso dissapointed. Imagine all the breakfast opportunities...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

NX will be....the end of these threads, when it release's



NX will definitely be much more powerful than Wii U and it will not have 200€ price.

People don't realise that Wii U for Nintendo was 720p console and with NX they will go on 1080p/60fps for their games. They also want 3rd party, that means at least similar power of XB1/PS4 in order to get ports of those games.

Nice Insider infos?

Or do you can atleast explain WHY you do think that? Because i gave tons of reasons thats not really likely to happen. But im free to get some arguments to disproove me. Or is it just your dream?

Because I also think releasing a ps4 competitor midgen will be even a bigger failure then wii u.

If they want to get 3rd parties back they have to do two things: make a console powerful enough to bring their games without needing major downgrades, and an architecture easy to develop for. Of course the userbase will matter too, but at the beginning these two are the important ones. Also, a decent amount of rumours pointed out to an NX slightly stronger than the XBone (and I'd like to think that this delay could mean a power increase around regulat PS4 levels, but that's just me).

They already did exactly that with the wii u.

Stronger then Ps3/xbox 360, nontheless multiplattform games like Dark souls, GTA, COD, Fifa, Assassins Creed, Metal Gear Solid, Bioshock and co skipped the system. Many games skipped the system even before it was known as a failure.

And as far is I heard the powerpc based wii u is similar to the xbox360 and porting from x360 isnt at least nearly as difficult as to port from x360 to ps3. And the ps3 sold 80mio anyways.

Well, it is a necessary step to get 3rd party, but it doesn't guarantee it. Unless you do something to get Wii-like support (which, contrary to believe, was not bad at all, it's just overshadowed by all the shovelware) Nintendo needs to get people interested from the beginning. And 3rd parties have to choose which games to bring to the NX, if they just throw every game they have, they will find its audience is elsewhere. Games like Monster Hunter Tri, Rayman Legends, Lego City Undercover, Minecraft... sold well on the WiiU, but most companies just paid attention to the bombs of CoD, AC and the Batman games. They have to pick the correct games for the correct audiences.

The Wii didnt had Skyrim, GTA, Red Dead Redemption and all that stuff either. Those games are the hotcakes at the moment. Check what GTA 5 is still selling every week on ps4.

Without those games, i highly doubt nintendo could be successfull with an console just as expensive and as strong as the ps4. And those games dont work on Nintendo consoles.

Thats why the system wont be powerfull/similar to the ps4 but very likely similar to what thid topic is about.
