It seems NX will be a powerful console. Lets hope Nintendo brings more than just the Nintendo Family games. More mature games would be amazing.

So, become more like 'rival' consoles in other words. I hope not. Each console has its strengths AND weaknesses, none will ever have no 'weakness'. Why do people want to Nintendo to always be all things to all people. For that you have Sony, Microsoft AND the PC, I mean...

Missing out on all Nintendo's AAA library of games because of your stubbornness...tough.

Holy Moley! Its great news that Dragon Quest XI is coming, but the fact that a DX version is 'being considered' seems to solidify the idea that the new Nintendo console is coming sooner rather than later. Perhaps 2016 will be the year?!

Haru1211d ago (Edited 1211d ago )

Well I imagine it will be another underpowerd console, since they're considereing porting a DS game over to NX

LexHazard791211d ago

I think he means with getting third party support. Unless you wanna play Mario, Kirby, Pikimin forever..Ive said before and I'll say it agaiN.
NX will be awesome!!

You don't need gimmicky hardware for great Nintendo games (see NES, SNES, N64, and Gamecube). There is zero reason that Nintendo couldn't create a console that would please third parties AND allow them to make fun games.

"Missing out on all Nintendo's AAA library of games because of your stubbornness...tough"

Just so you know, the vast majority of people don't buy EVERY game console for only first party games and that's why Wii U is selling poorly. They would rather just buy a system with great first AND third party games.

magiciandude1211d ago (Edited 1211d ago )

AAA exclusives and all, the Wii U is still a flop and for good reason. It couldn't stand a chance against the Xbox One and PS4. The masses won't buy an expensive console just for the exclusives, and then buy another expensive console for multiplatform titles. Nintendo got the whole thing wrong, minus the first party games. Can't lie about that.

The marketing was terrible right from its reveal at E3 2011. The public confused the Wii U as just a Wii with a tablet accessory. Combine that with very little advertising.

Nintendo has the weakest online multiplayer network, and it really hasn't improved much since launch, or even much from the Wii for that matter apart from the far overdue user names. That's another wrench thrown right at Nintendo's cogs.

Finally, unlike the Xbox One, PS4, or PC, chances are the Wii U won't be your only platform for the generation. You'd have to be the most die-hard of Nintendo for that, and you would fall into a very small minority.

"It seems NX will be a powerful console"

...what? You're aware these games are also coming to 3DS, right? Not really a good gauge for the next game console.

DarkOcelet1211d ago

You are aware that DQXI PS4 version will be the one that is most likely to be used for the NX.

Lets not downplay it until we see what it can do.

SilentNegotiator1211d ago (Edited 1211d ago )

No one is downplaying, just pointing out that this is a terrible way to predict NX's power. There would have to be substance to your claim for there to be downplaying. And you know, maybe if we're waiting to see what NX can do before "downplaying" it, we're waiting to see what it can do before making silly assumptions about its hardware strength?

Dragon Quest games are in no way demanding titles for hardware.

magiciandude1211d ago

PS4 has many games also available for PS3 and even the Vita.

_-EDMIX-_1210d ago

Very true. Consider UE4 is very scaleable. We don't really know what NX will be like, but clearly they must have the price competitive with PS4 and XONE.

3-4-51210d ago

uhh you realize there are two versions, with the PS4 version being made in Unreal Engine 4 right?

THAT version would be the NX versions.

Please tell me you smart enough to understand this.

More Dragon Quest is always a good thing.

Can't wait to play this on 3DS,PS4 & NX.

CaptainObvious8781210d ago

It's about bloody time a DQ game was released on something other than a Nindento platform.

Been waiting to play these games for AGES, just didn't want to get a Wii U.

animegamingnerd1211d ago

and with this i am pretty sure these 2 games are the first games for the NX announced.

FallenAngel19841211d ago

So will every platform with Dragon Quest be capable of playing with one another?

Also I'm surprised a Dragon Quest game is the first official title we hear for the upcoming NX platform

MrSwankSinatra1211d ago (Edited 1211d ago )

Sorry, but I was watching the stream and no where did I hear anything remotely about NX. I'd have to watch it again when it's archived.

jcnba281211d ago

Every big website seems to be announcing it for NX too though.

TwoForce1211d ago

I hope Nintendo will success.

pivotplease1211d ago

They don't even deserve it after trashing a 3/4 year old console. Sick longevity.
