Nintendo is really banking on their latest and upcoming game console, the Nintendo NX. Although the company was mum about the specific details, a report by Eurogamer said that they have received information from different reliable sources that the Nintendo NX is going to be a portable game console hybrid.
It is considered a hybrid since the NX console purportedly has two detachable controllers making it the display and up to 2 players can play a particular game.
Although that is still not official, the idea is already very interesting and a lot of players are excited to see the Nintendo NX. It is still unclear if the Nintendo NX is indeed a hybrid portable game console, though, so hopefully, Nintendo will be able to clear things up before the game console’s release.
Also, according to Eurogamer, the Nintendo NX will be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra processor. In fact, it will be fitted with a new iteration of the mobile graphics chip and that it holds more juice than previous versions.
But, the point of this article is to point out what the Nintendo NX brings to the masses. Again, none of the information here is confirmed as of the time of writing so be sure to take all of this with a grain of salt.
With that being said, what rumors about Nintendo’s upcoming game console do we have in our hands?
Well, it was believed that the Nintendo NX will be using physical game cartridges as opposed to digital discs.
With the recent rumor released by Eurogamer, it will not be a surprise if the company will use physical game cartridges for the Nintendo NX.
I also believe that having unique game cartridges will be good for the company since a lot of people want to collect some stuff.
Just imagine after so many years past its prime, people will be proud of all the Nintendo NX games they have collected through the years.
Another major rumor about the Nintendo NX game console is that it will integrate two of Nintendo’s past generation consoles: the Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Wii U.
As fanatics would put it, the Nintendo NX will be able to utilize both of these previous generation game consoles by probably using it to stream the content from the NX. Also, you can probably use the NX to play Nintendo 3DS games and vice versa.
Probably, the only thing that’s holding back some of the Nintendo fans from being too excited about the Nintendo NX is probably the third-party gaming lineup.
The Nintendo Wii U, although a promising game console, never really lived up to its hype and has never basked in the same glory to that of its predecessor.
That is because third-party gaming companies will not be able to port their games to the Nintendo Wii U, mainly because their games are fitted for more powerful game consoles (like the Sony Playstation 4 and the Xbox One).
Be that as it may, I believe that the Nintendo NX will be the saving grace of the company. Now, it is in Nintendo’s part to finally reveal the Nintendo NX to the world.
