    Finally, some spec rumors.

    It's from Geno, who has been very good and reliable with information in the past.

    http://gonintendo.com/stories/253000...ware-ability-s

    Basic Idea:

    About the level of an XBone in power (Eh, Ok. It brings them on par to current gen).
    Can port PS4 and XB1 games with no issues with near zero modifications (Will get 3rd party attention immediately)
    Runs NintendOS for operating software, and they're very careful in showing it off to not be mistaken for Android. (We already know its an Android based OS, so yeah)
    Titles like Pokemon GO can connect via wifi or bluetooth to the console (Mite b cool)
    Wireless HDMI dongle that is flush with the back of the device and can be plugged into any HDMI slot on TV (If this is the next evolution of the Wii U Tablet/TV functionality then awesome)
    Cell texts/calls can stream directly to the console from phone (Eh, multimedia functions are nice but im more indifferent)

    So equal in spec to a system that was already underpowered when it was released 2 years prior by the time this comes out.

    Never change Nintendo.

    No need for them to change. Their sucker fan base will always buy their products. They're practically shitting on those who bought a wii u, and they'll gladly eat it with a grin.

    Idk, haptic control on joystick seems cool. Not buy a new console cool, but cool.

    Well played Universe. You win, I am officially worried.

    Reeks of the original PS3 controller.

    Certainly not the final design. Looks like an early prototype.

    Edit: Well nevermind, this is from the patent:



    Looks like the whole controller is the screen. Not bad tech, but that is fuck ugly.

    I'm hoping thats just a test mock-up and that the retail controller will actually not...be that.

    Please.

    All i've wanted, for the last two generations, was just a damn normal Nintendo console with graphics on par with the competition, no stupid "innovations". No movement controls, no damn touchpads. Just give me good graphics with your amazing games. Fuck I'm tired of them trying to reinvent the wheel.

    Screen in the controller like the Wii U is fine but why would you want part of the screen to be partially obscured almost all the time by thumbs? I don't see the advantage in making the full face of the controller a screen besides maybe to map parts of it as extra buttons?

    Not to mention that for such a weird shaped controller they still have to render out a full rectangular image which would then get cropped by the controller. Anything past the thumbs is entirely wasted rendering space since you'll never be looking over there, only the central part of the controller.

    It mostly reeks of being a hoax here. That and I doubt Nintendo would want to run with an overly expensive controller design two generations in a row. The weird shape of it doesn't line-up in my head about the whole handheld+console thing for the NX that they're yet to go into any real detail on.

    That's Nintendo's thing tho. They'll always focus on innovation and software vs trying to have the best graphics. That was Iwata's direction, at least. I think the NX will step it up on the graphics curb, finally. As long as the games remain fun, and they dust off the Metroid franchise and do it justice, I'm all in.

    It will be a step up graphically over the Wii U (not really an achievement), but years behind the curve if the rumors about performance are to be believed.

    So does every reasonable person, but only being able to do horrible, outdated graphics can ruin the fun of something by making you focus on what it could have looked like. Wii U is in the sweet spot of "kinda bad but good enough that it doesn't bug me," but the Wii was always just disgusting with how far behind it was.
