    The speculation about going back to oldschool cartridge format for some cross-platform plan is interesting.

    I kind of doubt that as a motivating factor. Nintendo likely wants to push consumers in the direction of direct digital sales, just like basically everyone else is trying to do. Doing that likely requires a fair amount of internal storage anyway. There will be the folks that want/need a physical copy though, and building a cart/card slot in is far cheaper and easier compared to an optical drive.

    I like that idea. Using a kind of usb storage concept or external hdd to save and move games between platforms. How would storage compare to blu rays? I don't know anything about it to be honest.

    Third Party/Indie Studios aren't being given Dev Kits or even Specs for the NX so they can start development
    Ori and The Blind Forest dev, Moon Studios, provides the news
    This is actually THE singlest most annoying thing for every dev out there. We also talked to Nintendo and got absolutely nothing – I’ll never understand that. And just to be clear, it’s not just Nintendo, every hardware manufacturer is treating their devkits and their unreleased consoles like they’re the second coming and are insanely secretive about it to a stupid degree in todays time. It’s not even that the hardware isn’t finished (duh), but you could at least give me the goddamn specs, so we’d know what to build shit for!

    What’s needed to sell hardware is goddamn good software. With Nintendo not having any devkits out there at this point and probably even wanting to sell it in 2016, I can already guarantee that they’ll just not have any software support, since nobody can just jumble games together in less than a year. I mean, you can, but it’ll be garbage.

    The same is true for Engine Support – Get Unity and Epic to support these consoles WAAAAY ahead of release. By the time the console launches, it should be EASY for developers to develop games for these systems, things shouldn’t just only start at this point. I want the goddamn devkits or at least proper hardware specs ideally 2 years before release – Keep all the developers updated, start a forum where devs can chat and figure out all the problems everyone’s having, instead of everyone just having to deal with it. None of that’s happening anywhere and it’s just braindamaged.

    Nintendo gives Unravel dev, Coldwood Interactive, the same kind of runaround
    No, absolutely not. The more ways we have to reach the audience, the better,” he stated. When asked whether he knew anything about Nintendo’s upcoming console, he stated “I wish I did- but they’re really secretive about it! About the NX, it’s funny, really. I wish I knew more about it, but they’re really secretive about it. I actually had a really fun discussion with a person from Nintendo a while back. It was basically ‘I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours’ (laughs). So he wanted me to pitch something for the NX, and then he could tell me more about what it was. But basically, it’s kind of hard to pitch something when you don’t even know what it is! So if you manage to guess it right, we’ll tell you what it is. So, I don’t know. But I am just as curious as everybody else to see what they’ve been making.

    Well, looks like after being suckered twice, I'm finally skipping a nintendo generation.

    I'm a little skeptical about that article. Nintendo said earlier dev kits were sent out to developers as early as last summer I recall. Just because these specific devs mentioned didn't get one doesn't mean Nintendo isn't distributing them. Could be something as simple as they didn't have a working relationship with Nintendo previously and just were never offered kits.

    It is kind of funny though, how it seemed there was a small consensus of "nah, the Wii U isn't worth releasing on" and now it's "well why didn't we get NX kits?".

    I really hope this shit is bunk or that it's just those handful of devs. If Nintendo really is holding out on dev kits like they've been known to do in previous generations, they are going to completely fuck themselves again.

    There would likely be a good initial rush in sales for a year or two, until Nintendo forgets about the console entirely and all support stops. Again.

    I know for a fact that some small/medium sized devs have gotten the kits, the ones I know of all had previous Nintendo releases and good relationships. They're not at the stage of handing out the dev kits like candy to anyone who is a licensed nintendo developer(I don't have one for example).

    So these devs just seem like they're blowing smoke.

    I have absolutely no reason to disbelieve anything negative or apprehensive posted about Big N at this point. History has confirmed time and again that Big N does what they want, and only what they want, logic, public good-will or sales be damned.

    Site-that-shall-not-be-named has an article up about Zelda Wii U also launching with NX, both of which are planned to happen this year. Source seems credible. Don't know how I feel about it...

    I bought a Wii day 1 because of Twilight Princess.

    I *never* buy consoles day one. NX Zelda would cause me to get an NX day 1. It's probably the only game that would cause me to buy a console day 1. Not even FF or Pokemon would cause me to buy a console on launch day, and I'm wagering Nintendo is betting on that draw.

    If they *really* want to be nice with the NX launch, they'll have a Metroid and a new Mario ready.

    Why can't you mention BG or NeoGaf?

    I don't visit NeoGaf, and I'm blind if you already posted this; unless BG means something else.

    Only NX from the leak is Zelda. Rest of the leak was the Wii U and 3DS release schedule for the year and marketing budget for those two systems.
