We might not be so easily rid of the Wii U.
My WiiU has just as much playtime as my '4 and more so thaN my X1. Title says it all-another loada juvo-journo site. Avoid.
Did you read the article?
I have a wager on this exactly. If NX doesn't replace the WiiU or 3DS then I lose. Come on.. like why really keep a system that can't even outsell the PS Vita.
Yes I did. Undercurrent of WiiU being redundant. Which isn't The case.
I can't imagine why it'd ever be.
Well my Wii U hasnt been turned on in over a year. I will not be buying the next console. they need to go the route of sega
I bet its a phone.
* I have a theory that the NX could be a mobile/retro device. One where you pay $100 for device, and then you buy game packages. * You can buy the NES,SNES,N64, package. when you do, you get a huge selection of all of those games available to play. * It will also play mobile games. * So it will allow you to message people with text messages + allow you to play mobile games + allow you to play retro old Nintendo games.( hopefully Sega genesis too). * This way, Consoles, Handhelds & NX can all be there own thing. NX will also be compatible with the next handheld & console Nintendo makes, so you will be able to play these games on your big screen via the console as well. Just a guess though. Trying to see what they don't have and maybe that is the focus for the NX.
We won't know until 2016 so these articles are a waste of time.
this is what i was thinking about exactly i have a clear logical idea of what it will be but lets see if its comes out as true . btw the software development interface that nintendo is working on and i remember they announced it like one year ago they spoke about the wiiu being the base line in that software with future nintendo systems to support it so basically if you want ti make a game for NX and wiiu its gonna be very simple so i believe its not a direct successor in the traditional way still lets wait and see .
They said the Exact same thing when the DS was revealed. But we remember what happened to the Gameboy line. Only question left is, will the NX be fine console or handheld/mobile?
"We might not be so easily rid of the Wii U" Why would we want to be rid of it? Easily or otherwise! Fantastic console. Shame it's not selling as well as it deserves. Mainly Nintendo's fault for bad marketing and screwing the pooch towards the end of the Wii's life cycle. But if consumers want to miss out on the best version of Mario Kart to date (even considering the crappy Battle Mode), and a load of other great games, that's their loss I suppose. On topic... Nintendo has always had a 'three pillar' approach to hardware products - so it is highly likely that we'll have New 3DS, Wii U and NX in 2016.
