Iwata literally had to fight his own company in order to get ideas through.

So you're saying he had to beat the shit out of his own company-men in order to prove that his ideas are right?

Well, we have absolutely no idea what this is, but that doesn't mean we can't pre-order this two years in advance. Might as well make this easier to pre-order than a Pac-Man amiibo.

I'd honestly prefer that. Maybe if we could pre-order things like amiibo and consoles far in advance Nintendo could better gauge demand. We'd have fewer shortages that way.

Seriously, unless you know for a fact no earthly force will stop you from buying something on the day it's released, don't preorder. Especially if you don't even know what the blasted thing is!

You can always cancel if you change your mind. I trust Nintendo to not ship a game or console out if it has major problems.

No earlier than 2017, you mean.

No, no later. I really have a hard time seeing Nintendo populating 2016 with a solid software lineup, for either console (though harder for them to put up a good 3DS lineup than a good Wii U lineup, the chances are still poor for both). I still have a strong suspicion that we'll get the new platform in 2016, given continued weak Wii U sales.

Christmas 2016 at the very earliest, but I don't really see it then unless Nintendo decides to give out a ton of info in a Direct early next year.

It may have more to do with their services and software than necessarily pertaining to the hardware itself, mind you.

[up][up]No it doesn't. He's described as a test engineer with software tools. He's a tester, and from the profile there's no telling whether it's even new harder. He could be stress testing the 3DS OS updates for all we know.

Hear me out...

What if the Nintendo NX is a dual-screen, HD smart phone that is compatible with 3DS games?

I mean, the jump from the Gameboy line to the DS line was pretty big, so the jump 3DS to NX could be equally as big and surprising. Plus, imagine the type of games Nintendo could do with 2 touch screens!

The Android rumor makes sense if Nintendo wants to implement a dual platform approach, which based of the success of SSB 4 seems to be exactly what they wanna go for.

Both the handheld and console platforms could run a custom Android build, likely with a ton of changed features (think Amazon's version of Android that they use), with both platforms sharing the same development tools.

In effect, the major difference would be the console platform having better hardware than the mobile system, meaning cross platform games can be planned out right from the beginning and developed far easier as both platforms share many of the same internals.

Honestly I get the feeling NX is going to be a "reboot" of Nintendo's system architecture. After all, they've been building off the Game Cube for like 2 systems at this point. Nintendo has a "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality so they're not going to do these kind of big changes unless they've got a damn good reason to do so, and cross platform development is a pretty damn good reason let's be honest.

Should make mobile ports easier too, which is something they definitely want.

Android is so easy to hack and pirate though it strikes me as odd they would go that route.
