^^ This should be the twitter post about no info at E3

Dear God NO! This means we still have months and months of speculation ahead of us. I'm not sure I can take it.

So, they are going to miss the holiday season.. Oh boy.

Yeah, like I always said, even in the "Would you like to go on record" thread, a 2016 release, including up until March 2017 at the latest.

Still surprised that they would miss the holiday window though, as that seemed like a more likely target.

They also said that DS won't replace GBA.
This probably just means that it will be a new concept.



At this point i'm almost starting to believe Nintendo hasn't even developed a new system yet and they just announced a new hardware date because they have no freaking idea what their doing.



I am more disappointed about no E3 showing tbh...otherwise I have plenty of games to catch up with on Wii U/XB1 thanks to splatoon gobbling up my game time.

Nintendelay is truly averse to competition, no e3 + March release...smh. The positive, we can extrapolate from the earlier "industry leading tech" news, that 14nm simply wasn't ready by the holidays, and had to be moved to spring '17. If that's the case we may get a powerhouse, closer to PS4K than PS4OG.

I just came here to say "I told you so!" to all the people that said I had no idea what I was talking about when I said the NX wouldn't come out until 2017. =P 

March does seem like an odd time of year for a launch, though.

That tweet is misleading as this is the quote.

 

“At this current stage, I’m not able to say. However, it’s not merely the successor to the handheld 3DS or stationary console Wii U. This will be hardware that’s been made with a new way of thinking. I’d like to announce more particulars regarding its specs and how it works another time this year.”

 

Their President essentially said what Iwata did in that it's not just a simple replacement, he hasn't said it's not replacing the said platforms.



I was wondering why there was so many crow avatars until I remembered that thread :p

Probably wanted a 2016 Holiday launch but couldn't so had to push it to Spring which is a bit odd..

I've always maintained that 2017 will be the year that the NX launches, but I always figured that the Handheld would be released first (either Holiday 2016 or March 2017) and that the home console would launch in March or Holiday 2017, depending on when the portable was released.

It'll be interesting to see if this is a portable or home console.



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

It's the end of the financial year. I said March 2017 in the crow thread. It does mean they can offset the hardware manufacturing into the previous year so bigger losses or lower profit in the current year that started on the first of April.

 

I'd count march as 2016 really (at least from a business perspective), as people saying 2017 vs 2016 meant next holidays. So are actually further out. (Never less than a year between unveiling and release was the main argument.) If have been amazed if it was any later than March as everything pointed to this fiscal year.
