As we patiently wait for news regarding the Nintendo NX, the good people over at Eurogamer seem to have uncovered more details regarding the highly anticipated system. Keep in mind, this news should be taken with a grain of salt as we have yet to hear anything official from the big N themselves…. Anyway, here is what the internet outlet is reporting:
Nintendo’s upcoming NX will be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers, a number of sources have confirmed to Eurogamer.
On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal – but here’s the twist: we’ve heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required.
The website goes on to report that the system will also feature Nvidia’s powerful Tegra mobile processor and that the NX will use game cartridges as its choice of physical media.
Only time will tell if this rumor pans out to be true. I was under the impression that the NX was more of a “platform” concept and will feature a handheld component AND a home console. The two would work in tandem however would NOT be a hybrid system. What do you guys think?
