It’s no surprise that has already begun work on their next generation console. It always happens; as soon as a company releases their new gaming machine, they immediately begin work on its successor. With the Wii, Nintendo introduced motion gaming to the masses and had outstanding success. With the Wii U, Nintendo wanted to bring a 2 screen experience to the home console and was greeted with so-so results. Some praise its dual screen experience while others have called the system underpowered and confusing to the normal consumer. Nintendo has found themselves in an interesting predicament as of late. That’s why we here at MVGN think that a Nintendo tablet device would not only be a good idea, it would be welcomed by us with open arms.
The good people over at Nintendo have a bit of an uphill battle when it comes to their next home console. Some believe that the big N should match Sony and Microsoft and bring gamers a very powerful machine that plays well with 3rd parties and its competitors while others say that Nintendo should leave the home console business all together and go 3rd party. What we believe here at MVGN is that Nintendo should explore a tablet like device that would be both their next portable device and their home console. The “Nintendo-Tab” would be similar to Apple’s own iPad and could feature Amiibo support as well as a thumb drive that allows gamers to stream their gameplay on their HDTV’s. The device would kill 2 birds with 1 stone (both portable and home console) and would still leave Nintendo room to give the device that “Nintendo magic”.
