Hey look another rumor about Nintendo's new console. Here's my prediction again.

New Nintendo console with overclocked Skylake 6700T processor and Radeon Fury Nano XFire at $350 confirmed.

Sure you can but nobody will trust you because you dont have any history as an insider, Neo gaf member is  full of insider.

It doesn't have to be. It doesnt needs to pack a punch equal to PS4, but rather be a competent machine and has a Nintendo behind it that works towards promoting 3rd party products and getting them huge sales.



I think it want be even at the level of the Xbox One, it may be somewhere between the Wii U and PS4.
It seems they are aiming affordable console (probably around $ 250) with a new concept of playing, quite possibly handheld/home console hybrid.



I think its going to be a handheld with a mention future system coming out in 2017 with similiar structure so you can easily port between them, but Ive been guessing that for a while now.

agree with U, Wii comes to my mind, well it will not following Wii U but there will be focusing on casual rather then vague market like Wii U was (which is not even a casual nor core market). And they will geting a third party support if they can get a casual support like Wii was.

Problem with his source is - if he able to predict those PS4 game collection he is a Playstation insider or someone who has an insider for PS. Now on Nintendo's side, he should also has an insider for Nintendo to begin with.

I still don't get those insider info and what would they get? Just prestige that they got the leak first and press would pay them $$$? Or bragging rights 'I'll told yah!'

If Nintendo isn't competitive enough to get 3rd party support next gen. Sales may be below WiiU if they couldn't sell their gimmick. And the next generation gamers are really into great graphics with powerful specs. Not saying all but most...

Nintendo still has a slice of the market share but it is really the core Nintendo gamers who love their IPs. There would be a few new ones or parents who like Nintendo consoles but end of the day a modern gamer needs those 3rd party games in an on par version with the other consoles.

Still ain't buying that source info though.



People are really surprised about the most obvious things. Nintendo doesn't care about power, you should have realized that by now.



If you're interested in Nintendo content and understand german, maybe you want to take a look at my youtube channel! :)

Wii comes to my mind but ofcourse if you preffering Nintendo with powerful hardware (gamecube, Wii U, N64), but it doesn't work like that anymore, not especially if they want to repeat Wii success  and after they mentioning unified platform of handled and console, then this probably true. unless if they releasing on 2018 then they probably will have a powerful handled as powerful as PS4.



Who would have guessed? ah yeah me
