and red dead 2 :detect:

in all seriousness they do need a top 3rd party game to show it off, what they'll do instead is do a massive presentation on how that zelda game they've been showing on the wii U for 3 years will also be on the new console

I couldn't be more meh about a console to be honest. 

Nintendo haven't done anything that interests me in years, I used to love their consoles growing up.

Unless they sell literally 3 of the mini NES consoles the SNES is nailed on.

As for the NX... Unless all the rumours are wrong (hint - they aren't going to be, this is going to be an extension of the WiiU idea with a full blown tablet) or it's spectacularly powerful, which it won't be, it's going to be a complete meh.

This is how I would play it if I was nintendo, have own tablet that you use controllers (if required) and have apps of all existing and old school games as apps, so you ahve option to buy mario 64 for a pound for example. Also have the ability to make those games HD on this console. I could imagine that be very successful

 

and obviously have brand new games, better graphics, can play movies etc

It's called Switch 

As expected, it's a kind of hybrid home console, handheld console, and portable console, if that makes sense. The video does a decent job of explaining it. 

Splitting the portable consoles controller effectively in half to enable on the spot multiplayer on the fly is a pretty cool feature. 

Other than that, it showcased new Zelda, Skyrim, Splatoon and Mario kart, which on the games front at least kinda says it all.

Unlike the WiiU it seems clear exactly what the switch is and how it works. Think they're back in the game here.

i actually think its a very clever move, that to me is nintendo replacing the only games system with sales comparable to the ps2...the DS

thats not even trying to compete with the PS4 and Xbone, thats gone straight after the always lucrative nintendo hand held market, it looks like the most advanced hand held machine of all time that you can also play on your TV

was right about zelda too ;) not sure if that was a new mario game

Anyone catch King Boo in the Mario Kart clip? As well as the return of the 2 item slot? We could be seeing a lot of updated Wii U titles ported to the Switch which is cool.

Yep I'm in! Depending on specs/price of course but it looks a brilliant concept from the trailer.

Not a big gamer any more. I'll probably still buy it because no PS4/Xbone games interest me in the slightest but I still find Wii U games fun.
