NX Rumor Round-Up

What's Up?  

I love NX Rumors as much as the next guy, but the sheer quantity is overwhelming for me.  I am going to create a little page for myself here that I'll slowly edit over time, just to organize it.

 if you want to help/join in, feel free.  just comment with a link to another thread and I'll add it too the top.  I'm probably going to sort the rumors by confirmed fake, sourced, and unsourced. it will be fun for me to see what ends up true.

Wii U mini would be interesting, the gamepad could do with shrinking.

Do confirmed leaks count ?

Yeah, this is the most solid leak I've seen regarding the NX, I think

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

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

Good idea. There are so many rumors and "leaks" that sometimes it's hard to follow them all.

Please excuse my bad English.

nope, he speculated in some of the videos on his channel but he never claimed the specs were told to him by someone else...

I heard that the NX will cost less than the PS4 while being more powerful than the PS4K

It has 5-channel ddr5 RAM with 2tb ssd and a custom designed arm CPU cluster so powerful that it doesn't even need a GPU to play most games.

I know this because my cousin works at Nintendo and he brought one of their prototypes home one time to play with. It even has this super advanced external video card module that allows you to hook up any third party GPU to increase the NX's power (heck I even threw in a Nvidia Titan and it worked). This is mainly to enable a nifty feature Nintendo has code named "wiiPlay" , basically Nintendo is tired of no third party support and has decided to give them no choice. With wiiPlay you can insert any PS4, Xbox one, or PC game disc and the NX will dynamically recompile the binaries on the disc and you will be able to play it. So theoretically the NX can play most third and first party games from any modern platform (provided you have an appropriately powerful GPU inserted in the external GPU slot).


This is the believability of all current NX rumors/speculation/fantasies.

I could see a wii u mini. The wii got a mini version.

I actually haven't seen anyone post this one yet. It's one of the few that I have seen that seems legit, leaked from Indie Gamer Chick. She is connected with several Indie developers and has her finger on the pulse pretty closely. Apparently NX is "technically" more powerful than PS4. How? No one knows, it seems as though Nintendo might have something up their sleeves though : )
