What a dilemma. If they launch late this year, they'll likely have the most powerful console on the market and it might be mobile (who knows with all those patents and rumors for sure) so it could be a real game changer causing many early adopters for next Christmas rather than picking up a PS4 or XB1. It could end up being that console that can't be found during the holidays and it could carry that hype well into 2017.

No one knows how long the dev kits have been out... #15

What's to defend? It use to be just about gaming and not campaigning your allegiance to one brand. I love all platforms and the diversity that it allows. Great content from Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and the PC; unique fun experiences to be had from each. #7.1.1

I took the articles as a nice summary of Xbox One's journey so far this Gen and nothing more. Nicely executed in my opinion. #4.3

Enjoyed each part, well done! It certainly was a roller coaster ride for the XB1. You should do a similar piece for the Wii U =) The big N isn't on the upswing by any means after a disastrous launch, but with a new console making its debut as early as late next year that would be another interesting read of their ups and downs with the Wii U.

The PS4 has simply steam rolled since it launched so not much to write about there. Their venture with VR next year however, a... #10

I agree, that would actually be pretty awesome! Have the final boss fight setup where you actually can't beat him/her...then a crazy cinematic plays once you get the boss to a certain health bar point and Link jumps in finish the fight and then also has to carry Zelda out in time as the Dungeon is coming down around them (think original Metroid).

They should have used this approach with Metal Gear Solid 2 and given players Snake back midway through =) #1.2.2

Easily the most hyped game of 2016. So much mystery surrounding this one. I hope for much of what you said. Excellent use of the gamepad, a large world to explore and I definitely hope this releases on the NX as well so it can take advantage of whatever that system brings to the table.

I hope the main villain is the gnarliest one yet and towers over Link. I'd love to have that fear and anxiety walking into the last dungeon door similar to fighting a boss in the Souls... #4

Good question. I think the 90's was the golden age of gaming. Budgets weren't bloated, gamers weren't so sour and ready to complain about everything, arcades were still rocking, Sega vs Nintendo, all good stuff and fun times! #15.2.1

Great article! For those that gamed actively in the 90's, this will definitely hit home with them. How very much I miss the cartridges, box art, thick colorful manuals and of course couch co-op. Goldeneye pretty much started it all for the multiplayer FPS scene, as Mario 64 opened players up to the first truly immersive 3D gaming world which was one of the biggest game changers in history.

I'm with you in hopes VR and Hololens make that next true jump for gaming (a... #15

Let's hope RE7 returns to this formula of survival horror. With the successfully RE1 remaster and a new RE2 on the way, maybe Capcom is finally seeing the light and bringing this series back to its roots and where it belongs. Slow pacing, suspenseful, tension filled, frightened at all times...that to me is what Resident Evil should be and what made the first one so successful. #5

It's pretty simple to sum this game up. If you are a huge Star Wars fan, you will enjoy the fantastic visuals, sounds and authentic SW experience.

For the negatives, it lacks in maps and features and the season pass is by far the biggest slap in the face to gamers. EA once again got greedy and they aren't even remotely trying to hide that fact.

So, if you LOVE Star Wars, pick it up. You'll have fun and get plenty of hours of enjoyment out... #28

Release this and you are golden Nintendo! 2016 is your year, take it! This is the time to completely revolutionize your company, games, online infrastructure and marketing strategy. Kick it off by naming the console the Nintendo Revolution =)

First and 3rd party exclusive games at launch: New Zelda, Super Mario Universe, F-Zero, Pilotwings, Contra, Castlevania, Wave Racer II, Turok Revolution, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters II, Metroid and Mega-man.... #19

We are all guessing at this point but I'm leaning the other way. I bet many devs have already has these kits but it's just now getting around of their existence.

Nintendo has been working hard on games for the NX without a doubt now for some time. That means a 2016 holiday release is without a doubt a possibility. This would give 3rd party devs a year or more to port over their work if the system architecture is X86 (which surely Nintendo will adopt after their f... #28.1

I agree, the DC controller was fantastic. I'd argue even the original Xbox controller that made this list, while large and in charge, was a great controller overall. Halo played fantastic with the Duke. The Xbox One gamepad, which is one of the best out there now, is ultimately an evolved DC controller. #1.1

I've gotten this on numerous articles today. I eventually had to turn off the security setting that blocks certain sites if deemed suspicious by Firefox. Way too many random sites being blocked on N4G to be legit. Probably something that needs to be updated on Firefox's side. #2.2

Not sure it will get the funding needed, but I would definitely support it if it came out and it had a healthy catalog of games! Would love to put in a game cartridge again =) #1

Duke was a game changer for sure. It's too bad his latest venture was such a train wreck due to numerous delays and personnel changes during development. The days of LAN parties, co-op couch gaming and physical gaming media all face the threat of extinction as we advance down the road and the technology and features evolve. Some of the funnest gaming I've ever had was using the Link cable hub kit for the original Xbox and playing Halo with friends (multiplayer and coop campaign).... #1
