Bingo. They're in for a nasty surprise if they think they can charge more than $250 USD for this.

After the 3DS launch im sure they are well aware. If they aren't well they deserve to fail for not learning from past mistakes. 

Pretty much, yeah. 3DS and Wii U were both overpriced (at launch anyway, in 3DS's case) and suffered for it.

50-60 million would be huge for Nintendo. I think they'd be quite happy with that plus mobile is going to make them billions over the next 5 years.

This isn't really that low end ... this thing would be like 20x more powerful than the Vita and cheap by tablet standards. There's never really been a device like this.

For a console it is extremely low end. Hence it should be priced as a portable, not a console.

We don't really know the specs yet so lets not jump the gun there either. 

The Tegra X2/Parker chip reportedly is a full 4 TFLOPS, obviously Nintendo probably won't use that but they certainly could use a configuration like 

1-1.5 TFLOP (when plugged in/docked)

400-450 GFLOP when unplugged from wall socket/portable power. 

The "dock" could basically just be a cooling/fan unit which actively cools the chip when its running full tilt. When the system is undocked it could run strictly in "portable mode" (passively cooled). That would make a lot of sense actually.

To me it sounds very expensive, i cant imagine alot of people paying console prices for a handheld.

If this is going to succeed, it needs to be priced as an affordable handheld system. Console pricing invites comparison with PS4/Xbox One, against which it comes up lacking.

The Nvidia TV alone is $199 and it doesn't have a lot of storage, a screen and its not as compact, thisc onsole will surely be priced like a home console, and if the specs are not stronger then the nvidia TV it just won't compare to the current gen, let alone the Scorpio/Neo. Obviously it will be the strongest handheld, but who will buy a dedicated game console for $300 or more except maybe die-hard nintendo fans?

you guys have a good point.

If the NX alows Nintendo Console and Handheld or both gamers together....... We can expect high numbers! Especially if this means that Yokai Watch, Pokemon, Monster Hunter, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem will be also or be back on consoles!!!

And theres Splatoon which could have its handheld debut!!!



Pocky Lover Boy!

If does turn out to be Tegra X1, and hence less powerful than an Xbox One, I don't think they can get away with selling it at more than $250.

The Nvidia Shield console will be almost two years old by the time NX launches and is likely sold at a fat mark up by Nvidia, because that's what they do with everything since they don't make money off games. Nintendo can seller much closer to or right at cost. 

LCD display prices have plummeted the last 2-3 years too, there's $60-$70 tablets today with 720p or even better displays now that are 7 inches or larger.

Based on Eurogamers supposed info leak, How many NXs will nintendo sell World Wide?

My guesses:

Launch year = 5 million

Lifetime(5 years) = 25 million

 

What do you say???

Well first off if the Rumors are true this thing is a Handheld that can be used as a console.

So lets look at Nintendos Handheld market, has any of their handhelds sold less then 30 million units?

Even looking at the Charts now if the 3DS was classed as a console it would be the number 1 selling console in the world.

I think this alone should give a good impression of what a new nintendo handheld can do, Never mind that it could possibly be used as a Tablet too and well i think this thing is going to sell like hot cakes and thats just based on the rumors.

Has any handheld ever successfully been priced as a console? People won't be willing to drop more than $250 for a handheld. Just look at the 3ds. It was a flop when it started out at $250, but it was saved when it dropped to $180
