Nintendo, as per their norm, is choosing to keep quiet about their next gaming device, codenamed Nintendo NX. The company has stated that we will not hear anything about the system until 2016 and they do not want competitors to “take their ideas” on the system. Here is what Nintendo had to say regarding the system:
“We can’t talk about the NX. If we do, competitors may take our ideas and customers won’t be surprised.”
“This would not be beneficial for the company or its shareholders. The NX is new hardware, and will start from 0. However, the 3DS and Wii U have install bases. Immediately cutting off software for previous hardware upon the release of a new machine is inefficient.
“We will continue making 3DS and Wii software while preparing for the NX. We are prioritizing satisfying customers who purchased the Wii U.”
Whether this is PR jargon or Nintendo really has something special regarding their next system, we will not know until next year. All I know is that they better have something that will blow the general public away.
