Forums - Nintendo Discussion - PS4Neo + XBScorpio ... Is NX Screwed?

NX screwed, far from it

Anyone who planned on buying a NX but won't now because of NEO or Scorpio is a moron. Personally i hate this iterative consoles crap



I'm not entirely sure why people talk about both the Neo and Scorpio as if they will be instantly successful or that the launch of these next consoles will also mean that current systems will continue their sales trajectory.

Because there has been no, and I mean ZERO, NX discussion before. We haven't even had one NX thread on this site!

The glut of NX threads and the lack of sold info really have just killed off hype because they only thing we know for sure is that it isn't coming this year.  If we knew something about the system, then we can get hyped again.  I think he is saying that Nintendo is playing everything too close to the chest.  We have Emily saying that it won't be Polaris, and Sony and Microsoft look to have polaris (and if DF is right, they will both actually be 5-6TFlops).  That right there kinda kills hype for the NX for some.  I still have faith though.  I'm not down on Nintendo.



No, if NX fails it will be because its an unappealing product not because of Sony/MS releasing upgrades that just play prettier versions of PS4/XBO games.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Nintendo doesn't really care when the competition releases, so I don't think so. Besides, if it has amazing launch titles, then people will buy it.

Even if it had the suckiest launch in history, I'd buy it. Nintendo fanman for life.

Isn't this kinda the worst case scenario, that NX would be late to the market (2017) and would overlap into much more powerful next-gen Sony/MS hardware?

I guess the consensus 6 months ago was that NX would surely at least have 2-3 years more as a parity or even superior console, while Sony/MS sat idly by but it seems like VR pushed Sony into Neo, and MS was planning on Scorpio for a while. 

Scorpio seems more like a full-on XBox 2 with incredible 6 TFLOP performance (per Kotaku/Polygon leaks) but even PS4Neo at 4 TFLOP is a fairly impressive hardware leap forward. 

Was Nintendo banking hard on Sony/MS maintaining the status quo of the vanilla PS4/XB1 models for several more years? If the NX is somewhere between 1-2 TFLOPS (ranging from just below an XB1 to just over a PS4) ... it's pretty badly outdated from day 1 like the Wii U was. 

The console market is also getting oversaturated too, PS4 Neo, PS4, XBox Scorpio, XBox One, NX ... that's going to be 5 consoles in roughly 1 1/2 years. Are third parties seriously going to prioritize Nintendo in this equation? 

It doesn't look too great right now for the NX, even though I do think they will correct a lot of the mistakes of the Wii U, much like Sega with the Dreamcast, they are headed into a hardware tsunami I think.

LMFAO, absolutely GOLD.

Let's summarize: poor soundwave says A BRAND NEW CONSOLE, WITH BRAND NEW GAMES (name, strategy, library, price... still unknown) is screwed because of MERE IMAGINARY NEW MODELS OF EXISTING CONSOLES. Completely disregarding nintendo, as if they were nothing and uncapable of competing with the mere existence of sony and MS, lmfao.

the poor thing thinks NX will only have 1-2 tflops of power, even though it will have a minimun of 2.5 tflops in a worst case scenario, and most likely between 3.6 and 5.4 tflops.

Counts the imaginary neo and scorpio as new consoles that oversaturate the market for devs, when devs are most likely to ignore the extra hardware of new models that won't give them any extra customers and instead support the new console, NX.

If Xbox whatever is a new console instead of a new model and is getting releasing late 2017 (far more likely and intelligent than a new model of x1), so what? It will be the first NX competitor in the 9th gen race, released a little later than NX. When did that happen before? oh, right. EVERY GEN EVER. New console starts the gen, competitors follow. And what will determine the victor is always a mix of games, price, features and marketing, but mostly games.

And just a reminder that if we do get new models of ps4 and/or x1 that have better hardware, the extra power will mean nothing compared to NX even if sony and MS go full crazy and make them more powerful and expensive than NX. That's because the extra power can't be used without screwing ps4 and x1 custumers, not while they are models of ps4 and x1 instead of new systems.



Unless NX is some sort of miracle drug then it probably is.

That's what haters do.

Perhaps but among other things, what I'm getting from the excerpt below is the feeling that Turkish believes Microsoft and Sony are benefiting from "marketing buzz" and "people talking" about Microsoft and Sony and within the same sentence contrasts Nintendo against Microsoft and Sony as if there hasn't been "buzz" and "discussion" about the NX.

Turkish said:

These (controlled?) leaks are only good for MS and Sony tho, they start the marketing buzz before the products are even announced and get people talking about them while the only signal we have of Nintendo still being in the console business is a vague twitter post saying "NX launches March 2017!".

I could be wrong but until further notice from Turkish himself, this is my current interpretation from the excerpt above.
