That's being conservative, I bet the console and handheld are one and the same. It's just a handheld you can dock on a home cradle and use controllers with.
Only Nintendo could get away with this because Nintendo fans really don't care about visuals, so they'll be able to get away with having a handheld with ~Wii U capabilities.
A system made only for Maplestory
hell yeah i'm hype for a n3ds version of this
can't wait to be required to play 400x240 resolution games on a 50 inch tv
nintendo is truly innovative
Iwata only mentioned the project to avoid confusion, he specifically fucking said "We are NOT abandoning consoles" and mentioned the NX project as an example.
Source, the stream.
I think you are right about the cradle but i think there will be a difference between visual power when in handheld mode and when its in console mode. Like the dock is an extra graphics card or something. THe game are made with the same code but with different visuals like how pc can change its visuals and play the same thing
Unless DENA are making the games themselves this still means Nintendo's teams and manpower are going to be wasted on Press F to Rich shit.
Best case scenario is that Mario vs DK won't pollute consoles with it's subpar presence anymore.
Get ready for aNother eXchange!
Introducing the New Xtreme 3DS
Just like the handheld you've already bought like 3 times but now waterproof and more durable so you can take it rockclimbing and shit!
This, anyone that thinks it's a phone is retarded
watch the stream, he also said that the ips will be developed exclusively for each platform.
If it will be on mobile, it will only be a mobile game. Console game? Only a console game. No mixing or porting between the two.
Wow... will it play anything beside the same marioshit ?
A. Some retarded phone/handheld hybrid that will be a disaster outside of Japan or
B. A new console, in which case Wii U owners will get shafted in a way the world has never seen and be the laughing stock of this board for eternity
yfw its launch title is FFCC remake with extra content plus online.
They said they'd talk more about it next year, i.e. the Wii U will still have a 5 year lifespan. And that's assuming it's even a console--it might be a handheld (in fact likely is) or even a "third pillar" like they did with gcn/gba/ds back in the day.
Nigga, we're getting a small announcement next year, and then we'll wait 2 years max for that for an official release date. Decent enough time, especially since the new console won't mean Wii U will be dead.
/v/ is fucking insufferable every time nintendo does something.
I'm glad I sold my Wii U just in time.
I feel sorry for all the assblasted toddlers, though.
glad I returned the wiiu I bought on a whim
I have 4 games on my wii u, getting Xenoblade, Yoshi's, and Zelda. Star fox will more than likely be a purchase. That's 8 games in the 2 years I've owned the console, all exclusives, all quality. Perhaps not the best, but quality for sure.
Sony is selling their mobile division.
Are you ready for the world to replace their closed apple OS phones with closed NintendOS phones?
Because there is more hype on Persona than in a nintendo console
>changed wallpaper to this exactly one month ago
SHIT WAS FORETOLD
Q. Why did you announce NX here today?
>Our Next Generation platform is not directly related to this event. I just wanted to communicate that we will still be passionately focused on dedicated gaming platforms in the future. Immersive and well developed game, the kind that video game lovers love, will continue to be made as our Core Business. Without that explanation, we wanted to make sure pessimists didn't get the wrong idea.
DeNA is the company behind the Mobage platform. Which if you have never experienced it is the single most soulless wallet-sucking gambling-addiction-triggering monstrosity of an anti-game I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. The primary microtransactions have you shelling out thousands of yens for a few more chances to turn the wheel of a virtual gachapon in the faint hopes that a card with your waifu on it will come out next. Then you have to do it again until you have multiples of her, then you have to shell out for more so you can evolve her. Then a new event happens and the cycle begins again, and DeNA is laughing all the way to the bank.
>8 games in 2 years
I've had a PS4 for like 15 months and I have 20+ games for it. I've had a vita since November and I also have 30 games for that.
My 3DS I just bought has 4 games. The WiiU is trash
>Already abandoning the wii U
So glad I didn't buy one right now.
Buy a Wii U they said..
You won't regret it they said..
>persona 5 gameplay trailer
>30 threads appearing and getting full quickly
>nintendo announces a new console at the same time they announce mobile partnership
>4 threads going slow
>needs to be sticked because fuck all
You can't really compare someone who is extremely picky over what games they buy to someone who buys every bit of shovelware available. I only have about 10 games for mg PS3 for gods sake.
>As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business", Iwata adds, "let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand new concept under the development codename "NX".
Nice reading comprension.
>using their new arm architecture
What? I thought they were making an AMD + IBM.
And AMD ARM only avaiable for server application, specifically the Opteron line.
Where the heck did you get this?
>Play 3DS games on your Wii U
>Play Wii U games on your 3DS
>A new console, in which case Wii U owners will get shafted
How so exactly? They just said they won't even be talking about NX further until 2016. Which means it won't even be out until 2017 by the earliest, which would mean the Wii U had a normal lifespan, unlike the fucking PS3/360, which were continued far beyond their prime.
>Nintendo are partnering with a company to make a new account system, to bring Nintendo franchises to mobile platforms and to create their new NX platform
NX will be a single, multi-form device.
Phone-like handheld with a base station that links it up to a TV/controller
>that feel when Nintendo literally has enough money to bomb a console and get right back to the drawing board with a new one in a few years without skipping a beat
>"oh Wii U wasn't amazing? thats okay, we're making a better thing called NX"
You guys realise that it is nothing unusual for there to be a new console in development 2 years after launch right? That isn't something they start a year before release. Sony and Microsoft are likely already planning their next consoles to. It isn't even that unusual for them to be starting to plan the next console before their current one is even released. If they waited until the end of the current generations life to start development, they would let be releasing anything until half way through the next
>Sonyggers would just complain
Or some people don't want /v/ to become fucking Nintendogaf. I still remember the fucking sticky for Year of Luigi Continuation shit. Jesus fuck.
>Nintendo fags have nintendo's cock so far up their asses that they dont mind having to buy yet another console and having mobile shit in their console
Nintendo can do anything
Based Iwata, right guys?
So like I said, confirmed for not knowing how to read the catalog?
But they didn't announce it. Merely saying something is happening isn't a formal announcement, especially when they are using it as proof they are not giving up on developing hardware then clearly say they aren't going to say anymore about it this hear. This was clearly to address concerns they are pulling out of the hardware market.
Funny how the ones with most posts are the ones about the mobile arrangement rather the new console
>Nintendo consoles die after 5 years of support
>Sony supports their consoles for a whole decade and more
whos the cancer here now
>The design wins are interesting because the funding, the R&D dollars for customizing the parts for the products to our customers is precisely pre-funded by the customer and like I said the workload is started and we are spending the money and the resources and the work to go ahead and design the parts to be introduced sometime in 2016.
>Hans Mosesmann - Raymond James
>These two contracts, they are in the consumer space or enterprise?
>Devinder Kumar - SVP and CFO
>We didn’t say at which space it is in. I’m not going to give too much detail. I’ll say that one is x86 and one is ARM, and atleast one will be on gaming, right. But that’s about as much as you going to get out me today, because the customers from the standpoint to be fair to them. It is their product. They launch it. They announce it and then just like the game console or the parts you find out that its AMD’s APU that’s been used in those products.
>Nintendo consoles are so underpowered and weak they consistently have to bring out new shit just to stay anywhere near the curb
>Sony makes powerful consoles that last an actual generation
I WAS GOING TO ORDER A WII U THIS WEEKEND
God I wish the console war kiddies would just drop dead.
Who the fuck cares about Sony, they're not even direct competitors, in the words of Kaz Hirai.
Fuck off with your shit bait you fucking sonygger.
Anons are overreacting here.
Nintendo is just cashing in on mobile by oursourcing shit to a mobile dev.
I want to know more about the NX. Nintendo wouldn't announce something like that unless they have something particularly special about the device.
I wonder what its unique features will be, and how much more powerful that the Wii U is. Hell, if it ends up being more powerful than the One and PS4, then that could be an interesting move in the long run as it could shine when the other consoles stagnate.
That most likely won't happen though. Nintendo would need a much stringer third party pulling power to pull out that off.
I hope at least the new console will be easy to develop on and port to.
>NX is next portable gaming console
What would be the point in N3DS? Although they did the same with DSi XL to 3DS iirc.
>NX is next home console
Pulling a Sega with rapid abandonment has shown you lose customers during hasty transitions.
>NX is smart device
Finally a smartphone built to last.
>NX is VR
Atleast it would be affordable. Strapping a screen and two wiimotes to someones head shouldn't cost $350.
>NX is the cloud
The internet in many Western countries is still too shit for perfect streaming.
>NX is a PC
Macs already exist.
>NX is a holodeck/VR room
Computer end program.
