I think that's still too powerful and expensive for how they would want to do it, but maybe.  If they delay true handheld NX by a year or two, something like Tegra2 could be viable.  I suspect they want to keep it small though.

How do you think Nintendo will solve the HH then?

Hard to say, but I can see them shifting some of their HH focus to mobile.   They could also release a portable NX later, as production costs drop - not unlike the Playstation model.

I can see the HH being designed to both handle portable gaming and mobile as well.



Well, I can agree that mobile games probably will feature in the NX somehow. But I'm not entirely sure they'll SHIFT some of their HH focus to mobile; I think we'll continue to see what Nintendo already have done, making mobile games to drive their HW and SW sales like Pokémon GO did, and Mario Run probably will. In the end, maybe they'll lose out on like one HH game per year to make these mobile games, but itll be worth it since they'll be able to produce more games in total per console, since there only will be one console to produce for.



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

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

Time to watch this space

A lot of rumours will be put to rest in 7 hours while some will still live on until the full unveiling in future.



time to figure out what was true lol

A bit tricky but one sec, first of all.

I find this image really interesting.

Firstly what's confirmed.

- Nvidia propriety based off Geforce and Tegra
- Stand alone tablet device
- Docking unit
- Cartridges
- March still on course
- Skyrim Remastered (puts the platform at least in X1 range of power for now)
- 3D Mario although that was a given at some point
- Various controller/interface set ups (detachable, standard, screens)
- Platform seems to be able to communicate/link up with other NXs as seen in the portable multiplayer parts.
- Docking unit has 2 USB slots.
- Splatoon and Mario Kart also on the way (not ports as the were new features not in the current games)
- The classic D-pad is gone

That's not necessarily true. It can run at 720p30 unlike the X1/PS4 versions.

No one should expect a hardware powerhouse, or even current gen parity, from a tablet sized device with no cooling, it's simply not reasonable... unless the chip is made using the 10nm process, which is unlikely.



Please excuse my bad English.

Don't understand the word range I take it then.
