Finally some positive news for Nintendo! Well, since this isn’t confirmed, then it’s just a rumor, but a boy can hope. According to reports, Nintendo has begun distributing their NX developer kit to various third party studios & tech analyst.
Even more interesting is these same tech analyst claim Nintendo is confident in a 2016 launch for the NX. They’re also claiming the NX contains “Industry leading chips” which would suggest the next Nintendo console could be a serious powerhouse! The Wall Street Journal claims
“Nintendo would likely include both a console and at least one mobile unit that could either be used in conjunction with the console or taken on the road for separate use.”
If this is true, I pray Nintendo isn’t cooking up another dual screen gimmick like the Wii U. I hate having to look down at the Wii U tablet during certain portions of gaming. It does nothing for the fun factor in games. I also need some explanation on what “industry leading chips” means. That’s a very vague statement. Are we getting Core i7’s and Titan X GPU’s in the next Nintendo? If so, then sign me up!
Keep in mind nothing is confirmed and these are all rumors folks. Seeing is believing for me because let’s remember that this is Nintendo we are discussing. Will see. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
