They could have it how do you know? Didn't Squeenix say dragon quest XI will be on the NX

There are a lot of developers on the internet saying they have no idea what the NX is. That means they don't have dev kits. And this is the achilles heel that always screws Nintendo. Their paranoia. The first Nintendo console that had an optical disc drive was the Game Cube. Nintendo was so paranoid people would steal their games, they used the proprietary mini disc. In the end larger games would not fit on one disc, forcing devs to make two discs for one game.

Nintendo is so paranoid now that someone will steal the NX's gimmick, they are being stingy with dev kits.

I would love to see some sources b'cause all I've heard about that was some indie developpers whinning about not getting a nx dev kit :P

So it seems like Activision(Skylanders) and other indie developpers didn't touch NX's dev kit yet ... I'm not really surprised that some western compagnies won't be able to touch these until a long time. The NX seems to be merely focused with 3rd party from Japan as of now.

Would be funny if we returned back to carts. I wouldn't mind it though.

Carts? Wouldn't that be a bit backwards?

Not surprised either.  After the Wii U, Nintendo looks like they're essentially circling the wagons for the 1st year of the NX's life by looking to themselves and select 3rd parties that they know will have their back.  They can't screw up and they probably don't want to depend on developers that let them down last gen.



Goddamn, so much NX news.



nice

Here's my question, if it does have physical and it's cartridges... How in the hell are they going to fit a game like Breath of the Wild inside it?!?

Cartridges today can keep up to 6 TB of Data or even 15 TB when compressed. Of course, that would be expensive as hell and not an option for a gaming console. But something in the realm of 50 GB shouldn't be impossible. A big pro are transfer rates of about 750 MB/s which is just as fast as the best consumer M.2 SSDs out there.

However, most likely NX will just use SD cards or some derivation of it. It's cheaper and just fine for storing games.
