Is the Nintendo NX a Portable Console?

/ Jul 26th, 2016 No Comments

Nintendo NX Portable Console

Nintendo‘s next console, currently codenamed “NX,” will be a handheld device with the ability to connect to a television, according to a report by Eurogamer.

Sources told the outlet that the NX will feature a large screen with two detachable controllers. The controllers can be removed so that users can plug the portable console into a docking station for use with televisions.

The hardware is expected to run on Nvidia’s Tegra processor.

Additionally, the report says that games will be cartridge based, although digital downloads are also expected to be an option for purchasing games. Eurogamer suggests that Nintendo could be using 32 GB cartridges, but this figure seems low given the size of games available for current home consoles.

The NX is expected to run a Nintendo-created operating system, not stock Android.

Nintendo has yet to officially unveil the system, but has acknowledged its existence. The company is widely expected to reveal the console around September this year, with a launch planned for 2017.

Quick Take

This report doesn’t instill much confidence in Nintendo. After the failure of Wii U, it seems Nintendo is just tweaking the console rather than innovating. The concept of using cartridges and having a portable console could easily backfire, and Nintendo cannot afford for that to happen.
