It obviously IS a replacement for WiiU these CEO's just like to try and be clever with what they say.

I mean, unless the NX is an external upgrade kit for the Wii U that adds tons of extra power and functionality, or something...
Think N64 Expansion Pack on steroids.

@ Notabot
There's a part of me that wants to see it be just as I said, if only to witness the rage of Wii U haters that wouldn't be able to handle it not going away.XD
But yeah, of course it's a joke; Nintendo already stated that they might cease production of the Wii U in 2018, so why would they make an expansion pack for it before that point?
I mean, unless they're going to do what the PS360 did, and extend the Wii U's generation out beyond a 5 year cycle.

Dear lord do not let that happen.

haha! I doubt it but that would be amusing! I'm thinking its gunna be some sort of Handheld to TV device, we'll see!!!

I'm sure you're joking but that would be a kick in the balls to people who gave up on the Wii U.

bouzebbal1279d ago

lol you are a Nintendo fan and you don't want them to do things coorectly apprently.
Wii U is history. they need to go as far away from that as possible.
RAM pack was good back in 99 or something, i truly don't hope there is any truth in our words lol

XisThatKid1279d ago

Um why WOULD they have a successor to a considered failed product and ultimately if named anything "Wii" could cause product confusion like what the Wii U suffered from. Also this is kinda insinuates that there eventually WILL be a successor and we ALL know this isn't going to better not.

Agreed. I'm not really sure what they could be talking about and it just sounds like they are being coy. lol

Tom_Wilson_QuatM1279d ago

But if they say it's not a replacement, they can tell investors that they'll have the WiiU and 3DS and NX all being sold at once and it will be great! But they'll still stop making the WiiU and the NX will exist after it and it will be the same as any new console cycle...

If you want fuel for the show, don't be too clear with what you say.

I am just amazed with the how so much speculation buy yet we have no real clue what this thing will look like, what kinda power it will have, and even the media it will use. I just want some solid details to "wet my appetite" so to speak and then sit back and wait to see the final product.

They said that for their previous consoles as well ... they were replacements.

hduce1280d ago

They said that with the DS. They referred to it as the third pillar. They claimed it wasn't a replacement for the Game Boy line and ultimately it was.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1279d ago

Yes 3 years later. GBA didn't get replace for good til 2007.

ScorpiusX1279d ago
