No, it won't. There's no point and we deserve a real console not gimped because bc.


Yes, it will. It's absorbing the Wii U architecture, so discard your dreams of it not being "gimped" by old hardware now.

Confirmed? No. That was another dream from Iwata before the colossal failure it became the new console. Also, the patents have gladly show us there's no disc drive, so no bc. Thank god!


Although I cannot confirm  or deny that the NX will be backwards compatible, I do know this; Patents don't matter. Every company files them all the time, mostly to prevent other people from running with the idea, few patents are actually used in actual products. Well, at least in the gaming industry. Nintendo has hundreds of patents, ranging from weird and wacky to actual plausible products, but none of them ever came to fruition.

...You're kidding, right? You literally referenced the same quote, only you called it a dream.

Yeah, it was a dream because he WANTED to MAYBE absorbs the Wii U arch into the next machine, but that didn't happen. Now they are moving on. I mean, why would they want bc with the Wii U, a console nobody bought? If the games released on the Wii U weren't enough to sell the console having bc to play those are not going to sell any NX, so they are not going to sink money in this project. Now their priority is another one.

Nintendo seems happy releasing remakes and ports. They can sell ports to NX and won't have to waste time and money in bc with the Wii U.

Anyway, the quote I refer never confirmed anything, that's why I wanted to see your source.

The speculation is that they have two formats: SD cards (handheld) and discs (homeconsoles). Now that Ninty unify the library with the NX, they choose SD cards that could be played on any hardware form. Althought, we could expect some exclusives, but few only.

There are a lot of great games on WiiU that you can´t play anywhere else, and probably won´t be playable on the NX.
We even don´t know for sure if the NX will be launched next year (I wouldn´t bet that)

If you can find a bundle for a good price, I´d recommend you to buy it. There are still some good games coming and you can find some great games with discounts today.



"while we are only going to be able to start this with the next system, it will become important for us to accurately take advantage of what we have done with the Wii U architecture. It of course does not mean that we are going to use exactly the same architecture as Wii U, but we are going to create a system that can absorb the Wii U architecture adequately. When this happens, home consoles and handheld devices will no longer be completely different, and they will become like brothers in a family of systems.

Still, I am not sure if the form factor (the size and configuration of the hardware) will be integrated. In contrast, the number of form factors might increase. Currently, we can only provide two form factors because if we had three or four different architectures, we would face serious shortages of software on every platform. To cite a specific case, Apple is able to release smart devices with various form factors one after another because there is one way of programming adopted by all platforms. Apple has a common platform called iOS. Another example is Android. Though there are various models, Android does not face software shortages because there is one common way of programming on the Android platform that works with various models. The point is, Nintendo platforms should be like those two examples. Whether we will ultimately need just one device will be determined by what consumers demand in the future, and that is not something we know at the moment."

Nice to find it. So, it's bc not confirmed as he refers to absorbing the architecture in not the same way. IT could have a lot of modifications since, what? 2014? and considering it's released next year with "industry-leading-chips" they are not going after bc.
