well im assuming if they were to go that route than your device would be somehow be deactivated if you didnt pay, just like your cable/internet/phone/utilities get shut off when you dont pay.

They wouldn't just do that. They would send it to collections and it would ruin your credit. Being afraid that people wouldn't pay wouldn't stop them from subsidizing. This is the real world lol there are severe consequences in real life for not paying bills. You sign a contract when you opt into these kinds of payment plans. Their asses would be well covered.



Well, this is new.

I don't get why NEOGAF is a credible source these days, to the point that news articles reference them. From what I remember, NEOGAF is just another gaming forum.

It's not though.

It could literally just be a second GPU or something, much like a streamlined version of Crossfire setups on PC. 

If you have a home NX maybe SCD upgrades the graphics to 2K-4K resolution. 

If you have a portable NX, maybe buying a SCD upgrades the system to home NX quality so you don't neccessarily have to buy the console. 

...This sounds like science fiction. I'm going to learn what this is more because I clearly don't understand this thing enough.

Supplemental Computing Device

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2015/12/intriguing_nintendo_patent_points_to_supplemental_computing_device_and_cloud_resources_for_a_gaming_system

Oh, I'm an idiot. I didn't realize you were just shortening it.

I can't imagine how licensing hardware out would even work.

well i believe it mentioned each SCD could work like a local cloud, so whenever someone is in range of your SCD than their device will have those extra visual/performance upgrades. it could be as simple as gaining My Nintendo points based on how often your SCD is used by others.

well ya obviously it would be sent to collections and it would affect your credit but its not like people dont back out on contracts all the time, Nintendo would still be losing money on hardware if people did that.

*If* they do use a screen controller and I'm still not 100% sold they will, maybe that patent (and subsequent fakes based on said patent) wasn't soooo far off. The Game Informer editor did say he was told of a controller with no face buttons.

Imagine a free form LCD display "slab" basically, that can attach plastic transparent overlays on top. You could have a Pro Controller style button layout. A GameCube layout. An N64 layout.

Or even beyond that a very different/new controller layout. Plastic overlays would only cost like $1-$2 a pop to mass produce. Nintendo could ship the NX with a standard Pro Controller style overlay, but also with a more unique setup with something new perhaps that interfaces with a touch panel somehow.

Just a thought though.



Could we stop with these rumors. Like please. Absolutely no one cares about the hardware rumors anymore. We've heard them all- from being weaker than the Wii U to having top-of-the-line specs, this topic has become oversaturated

12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

So assuming this is true the nx will be really expensive as Nintendo always sells their stuff overpriced

"absolutely no one cares" yet this thread has over 100 posts as do most NX leak threads.

They definitely would, but Apple seems fine with it. It's not going to be this company crippling worry for them. Most people won't because most people don't want to deal with the consequences of something like that.

And to address your other quote, that's extremely interesting. I'm watching a video on it now.
