Nintendo Doesn’t Want Competitors to Steal NX’s Ideas

nintendo_nx

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.

Xbox Games With Gold For July Revealed

The Xbox Games With Gold for July titles have been revealed and they are pretty good if you ask us. I don’t care if these games are a bit on the older side, it’s nice to see some great classic games appear on this promotion (I’m looking at you Gears of War 3). Although I still own this, maybe a lot of gamers have traded the title in and want to revisit the series one more time. Also, the XBOX One seems to have a decent offering as well treating gamers to Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.

Do any of these titles catch your fancy?

This just in, Nintendo has announced that its all new IP, Splatoon, has sold over 1 million copies worldwide. This is a combination of digital and physical sales for the title. Nintendo has to be thrilled with this number as it is a brand new franchise for them and the game has only been out for a month. Here is what Reggie Fils-Aime had to say regarding the title:

“Ever since Splatoon launched on May 29 in the United States, we’ve seen thousands of people go online to have fun in this colorful, chaotic competition,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “This milestone puts us in a nice position as we prepare to launch 11 more exclusive Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games before the end of the year, plus amiibo, digital offerings and games from our third-party partners.”

Impressive numbers Nintendo. Let’s see how this one does over the summer.
