Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Images of the NX Controller Surfaces!

I will reserve judgement till I know more about it, but my initial hopes are that it is fake because it concept scares me lol.

I still think that this is the NX handheld, and not the console. I also happen to be one of the only people that think it's going to be amazing! I can't wait to get this!!!

Not sure if this has any credibility but http://imgur.com/r9vRQTg?r

Doctor Cupcakes says this is fake


You think Nintendo is going to have people go "yes thats real, its a prototype of ours" ? when asked if the rumored pictures are real?

They are only allowed to answear "its a fake".

I may be wrong but I can't recall a time when a Nintendo official called something fake (offically or unoffically) and then later have Nintendo go "yeah, it was real".  When something is leaked that Nintendo didn't want leaked, I usually see them either go into full damage control like with the SuperMetalDave leaks or just stay silent.

I'm happy to say that's real. It'd be a good laugh. 

Cone = insider confirmed!? :o



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Only allowed to answer 'its a fake'?

Any other company would probably tell them to answer 'no comment' or 'sorry, I don't know'. Something neutral rather than too affirmative or negative.

Where are the buttons? How are we supposed to play with this?

like the mobiles >:3



In this day and age, with the Internet, ignorance is a choice! And they're still choosing Ignorance! - Dr. Filthy Frank

That definitely looks more convincing...

I don't really have an issue, but I really hope it does have some kind of haptic button to simulate physical buttons. Otherwise I'm not really sure what to think about the direction Nintendo is moving toward.



Here's the thing that is bothering me. Nintendo has not released anything but dev kits to these companies. Do you guys know what dev kits look like? They are abominations, and they are usually inoperable unless hooked to a computer provided by the company. They are not finished looking products such as this or the previously leaked white controller photo. Those two systems look the same, but neither show logos, neither are hooked to a separate device, and both ARE DIFFERENT COLORS! Do you think Nintendo take the time and expound resources to make two different colored DEV KITS? I don't think so. Ever think this could be either A) a completely made up hoax by someone or B) a completely different device altogether being claimed to be a Nintendo one? What if it's just another companies trash from some patent? Or an insider in a company developing an idea?

Until we get something official from Nintendo, I'm calling these hoax photos, all of them. Especially since we are just ignoring the patents that look like the Wii U controllers. Those are real patents too, why would they create a controller IDENTICAL to a patent, but then have a separate patent with a completely different looking controller? I don't personally think they would.

I'm calling hoax too until offical word is given.  NX info is probably the juicest piece of gossip the video game industry has had in years and making some convincing fakes would be a great way to get some attention.  Also, it's just way too convinent for the controller to use all of the patents that people associated with the NX.

Sorry, dongo8. I think you've missed the tweet from analyst Sebastian Kramer who confirmed this to be a real prototype of the NX controller.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
