Hi, I got curious to see what people really think the Nx is. I have seen many strong opinions, so it would be fun to see the consensus about it.

gcunit edit 21/09/2026: Changing the thread title as this has become 'the' NX speculation thread and hopefully it will help prevent other threads popping up that would be best suited to be discussed here.

gcunit edit 20/10/2016: updating thread title from "The NX: the Pre-Reveal Speculation Thread".

Hmm apparently 100% of the (1) voters agree with me...

So Anakin kneels before Monster Mash and pledges his loyalty to the graveyard smash.

You forgot my previous option it might be a dancing humanoid stripper banana.

There was no option for "maybe we should stop speculating about something we know next to nothing about and wait for Nintendo to say something" so I didn't vote.

Not anymore. Unless you have a split personality.

It is about peoples beliefs, not the truth.

And why are you reading the NX-forum if you don't like speculation?

I wasn't. It was on the NL home page.

@TeeJay: Still, you're coming into this section at your own free will. Don't like it, don't go in this section. it's the internet and we're a fanbase. We discuss, we speculate, we hype, etc.

Anyway, voted for the portable and console option, though i suspect one will be out before the other.

This poll is way too specific.

Currently Playing: Super Mario Odyssey, ARMS, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Steamworld Dig 2, A Hat In Time, (maybe some Wii games over Thanksgiving w/ the fam)

You can always add another option if you want to.

My gut feeling is that it's going to be an app store similar to Apple's centered around games you can play on your Wii U/3DS/Mobile while also having it's own hardware to play these games on the NX (a thin client of sorts).

What I want it to be is a return of a classic cartridge based system. But I'm not holding my breath.

I love traveling light through Europe and run a blog about it at OneBagTravel.com
Hardware: Wii U, New 3DS, Super Famicom & Super GameBoy, Game Boy Pocket

I can see it being like that XDS thing too. A portable Wii U.

A new home console with a controller that in no way bears resemblance with the PS4.
Nintendo has always made the best controllers and Sony the worst, imo. So I would like something similar to the GameCube controller or even the Wii U Pro. Not the DualShock, please.

Either an hybrid console system or a universal Nintendo OS that would be implemented into future Nintendo hardware.

The NX is a Robotic Dog toy that can learn new tricks either by the user teaching it or by downloading them from the internet (extra memory sold separably to cut on cost) This new "game system" will make you feel like you actually own a dog in which to play games with the dog. You can play fetch, chase, and hide & Seek. This will be the next major move for the future of gaming, building androids to play with instead of stationary machines. The Robotic Dog can sense hand gestures to preform certain actions but it also comes with its own GamePad which allows the user to control it more directly. The touch screen offers simple inputs while the buttons allow for more complicated actions. The touch screen can also display what the Robotic Dog sees which makes for easy navigation if you aren't in the same room. Welcome to the FUTURE of playing games...

Heard from my Uncle's neighbor who visits Japan sometimes and had a conversation with Miyamoto.

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

The NX may be a Virtual Reality system. Who knows? Nintendo may be wanting to succeed in VR.

It would be more aligned with the times than virtual boy was.

It will be Nintendo's version of the ipad. Not a 3DS or Wii U replacement.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

NX was confirmed to be dedicated video game hardware iirc. Even if it wasn't, I don't think anyone would buy a Nintendo tablet (or phone for that matter). Why would anyone choose that over Android, iOS or even MS?
