@DefHalan: You need at least about what? 5-10 Mbps for stable streaming in HD. The only places I have a stable download speed that can handle HD streaming is at home. Plus, there's the huge input lag, it's just not practical from what I understand. Perhaps @skywake can enlighten us?

@gcunit: @DefHalan:
What you'd need is a high enough speed connection between an idle "base" and the portable component. Which is very easy to do in your own home because your own WiFi is the main bottleneck. The NX could even act as its own access point which would be a good way to guarantee performance (that's what the Wii U does). It could also be possible if you're at someone else's house and they have an idle base.

Beyond that? It gets real tricky real quick. You'd either have to have consoles sitting idle near WiFi hotspots or world class free WiFi hotspots that for some reason people aren't using. Because if someone else chews up some of that bandwidth? The whole thing falls apart....

I hope that Nintendo is going to go the Steam and Origin way.
So that Nintendo NX is not just a console, but a new platform.
A platform that can run on a hand held device (made by Nintendo of course), a console (also made by Nintendo of course) or PC.
All the platform need to do for it to work it to run a test of the device hardware to see want game it can run and then check what controls it has access to.
At launch you will have access to all the games that you bought on the Nintendo e-store. Be that on Wii U or 3DS. And 3 free programs. Each one will allow you to run CD games from Gamecube, Wii and Wii U (If the platform says that the hardware can run it of course).
That way Nintendo sell game to the PC market and not worry so much on making consoles, because the only need to set the hardware standard for the next generation of game and make some new fancy controller from time to time.

On the more realistic note, being able to play the game I bought on Nintendo e-store and Blue ray play would be nice.

Games of fantastic design, not designed specifically to pander to the lowest common denominator (that would be the video game equivilant of jingling keys in front of the player as they giggle and clap their hands in an infantile manner, ie 99% of western third party games).

Uniqueness is important to me. I also hope that there's no more split in user bases and its purchases.

I'd like more online gaming too. It still boggling how much potential some of Nintendo's games have in terms of online co-op or matches.

I have played a lot of games...I want something I have not experienced before.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

One thing I don't want: miitomo friend system. If NX has that I'm out!

The Miitomo friend system is designed for having a personal interaction. I have loads on FB friends I haven't added because I simply don't have a strong enough relationship with them to want to share my Miitomo answers.

There is no way Nintendo will go with that for their home console.

Given I was shot down in another thread for suggesting it I guess I'll also post it here. I think the one thing Nintendo needs to do is get third parties on board. The most obvious way to do that is to make sure that the NX is in the same ballpark as the PS4. Both in terms of specs and architecture in general. I think the one thing that screwed over the Wii U more than anything was the amount that third parties ignored it. And you can mostly blame the hardware itself for that. Not the GamePad, not the marketing but the actual hardware itself.

I look at the list of announced muti-platform games coming out soon and it's kinda depressing for Nintendo. Overwatch, Mirror's Edge, No Man's Sky, Deus Ex, Battlefield, CoD, Final Fantasy, Dishonored, Kingdom Hearts, Hitman, Mass Effect. There are all coming to XBOne and PS4 and Nintendo has been missing out on these sorts of games for years. That can't keep going. The NX needs to do what the Wii U couldn't.

Hopefully the NX can get a fair chunk of these titles in particular ready for either the launch of the NX or whenever these games come out. Then from there keep it going for the next year and the next. If the NX fails to do so then get ready for the alarm bells to start ringing. You can't be ignored by third parties to the degree the Wii U has and expect to still have lifetime sales of 40mill+ units.

Taking the potential for industrial espionage into account I guess the revisions of the PS4 and Xbox One could possibly be a response to the NX.

Maybe we'll being seeing something from Nintendo that'll be able to compete with Microsoft and Sony in the Tripple-A arena. Given the exclusives they have out of the gate (the Nintendo properties) it could totally be a viable way to go...

...not much adoption of the Wii-U following the massive success of the Wii, I guess the converts all picked up competitor consoles? I guess that's the market voting with its feet...so, potentially, now we know where the interest lays (I guess brand-recognition and brand-loyalty only goes as far as the content offered).

It's an interesting time for video-gaming.

Games.

It always comes down to games. Anything else is secondary. The NX could be a portable system with the horsepower of a GBA and I would still buy it if they manage to use their IPs creatively to make appealing games. I've noticed that Nintendo has been lacking in that department a bit lately (understandably, considering how hard the Wii U tanked). I hope they can redeem themselves in my eyes with the NX and its games.

@SuperPaperLuigi It's not a response. Hardware revisions aren't something new, and taking the PS4's graphical power into account, it's not a surprise their new revision has more power too.

@skywake You sure about that? I thought No Man's Sky was PS4 exclusive.

@Grumblevolcano Console exclusive. It'll be on PC as well, but not on Xbox One. Not in the foreseeable future, at least.

My mistake, though you get the idea anyways.

@Octane I agree, hardware revisions aren't a new thing but revising the consoles to be more powerful is. It's not impossible that the Sony and Microsoft's performance increases could be to match a potential step forward from Nintendo.

It's just speculation.
