Because there has been no, and I mean ZERO, NX discussion before. We haven't even had one NX thread on this site!
The glut of NX threads and the lack of sold info really have just killed off hype because they only thing we know for sure is that it isn't coming this year. If we knew something about the system, then we can get hyped again. I think he is saying that Nintendo is playing everything too close to the chest. We have Emily saying that it won't be Polaris, and Sony and Microsoft look to have polaris (and if DF is right, they will both actually be 5-6TFlops). That right there kinda kills hype for the NX for some. I still have faith though. I'm not down on Nintendo.
