Talk about the NX docking station

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Talk about the NX docking station

What do you think it contains? It seems quite large, so more than just a charger? What is the bulky back hump?

Extra GPU inside?

Cooling fan inside for boost mode?

Secret sauce?

Now we are plaing with power?

I'm hoping it provides extra power just because I want the NS to at least be at Xbox One power level bare minimum, that way it can still get third party ports.



A charging cradle with hdmi output, potentially an upscaler, that's it.

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Something to improve the online functionality. I love the 3DS, but it really needs to improve its online component, and a direct connection would solve it.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Tvs do upscale, you dont need an standart upscaler on the dock.
i think is just the way to charge and wire the content to TV. plus a place for plug HD and usb acessories, like smash GC adapter and skylanders paddle.

It could have a GPU but its just very unlikely. If anything, its there to charge and connect to the TV. On the side, I believe it has usb ports so maybe you can connect an external hard drive to it. But I doubt it will be like "zomg power" with it. Cause if that was the case, I just dont get why they wouldnt advertise it in some way.

I think the docking station will have a Ethernet port, a Wii sensor bar port, USB, and wishfully the wii A/V out port too along with HDMI.



Hello World

I'm betting big on this one:

Blast processing



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

Well, the NS is basically a Tablet and so far tablets have never needed a docking station for charging nor doing TV output.  

So yes, I do believe there is some extra power in that piece.

No, but it's a hell of a lot tidier and more refined than having to plug in AC power and a HDMI.

The 3ds had a cradle, it needed one a hell of a lot less than the NX.
