Nintendo Fusion (NX) could have a tablet, alongside a handheld and a console. But maybe we will get a mixture of a tablet and a handheld.
Nintendo should just get out of this pissing race.
Let people choose multiple hardware types, whatever is best for them fine.
NX Tablet. NX Handheld. NX Cheaper Family console with wacky gimmick controller. NX Pro console with more horsepower and larger size, more expensive.
Same games run on all of them at varying effects/resolution.
Now people can shut the f*ck up about dictating to other people that everyone needs to play games *exactly* the same way they do.
If I need a Macbook Pro, I can buy that, if I want just a Macbook, that's cool too. I buy based on my needs. Democrotizing hardware so the consumer has CHOICE is the best thing Nintendo could do.
I'll also bet dollars to donughts if Nintendo goes this route, given a choice most consumers will choose the tablet Nintendo NX variant over the smaller handheld fold-out one. Same way the 3DS XL outsells the smaller regular 3DS by a large margin.
