@ningeek185 Even Nintendo did VR once, before it was "cool" ;) Remember the Virtual Boy.

IF NX is VR or a console with VR capabilities I want them to call it Virtual Boy 2 :)

And now people only jump the VR bandwagon because they said that it would "immerse" players into the games. But I don't think Iwata was talking about VR at all.

NX is going to be the Wii U and 3DS successor. Yes AND. It will have a x86 based low energy consuming CPU (like Intel Atom) and will be able to stream using Mirecast to a TV or Monitor. (With Mirecast built in or using an HDMI dongle) It will have on par graphical power compared to the PS4 and will play games off SD card like cardridges.
The console looks like a Wii U controller (but better designed) and can communicate with 4/8 other consoles or 4/8 "Pro" Controllers when connected to an external Display.

The device will be completely wireless and will use BT for headphones, wireless charging and WiFi/BT for communication.

I don't think NX will be VR. Simply because of:

1. Sony is developing VR for the PS4 (Project Morpheus)
2. It will be too expensive or not very powerful.
3. It's what everybody is doing right now. Oculus Rift, Valve, Sony, MS, etc.
4. Virtual Boy.

The Original 3DS has been hard to find in Europe for some time before the launch of the New Nintendo 3DS. So I can see why Nintendo decided to release the regular size NN3DS in Europe. For which I'm very, very happy :)

I think the XL consoles are too big, and the Original 3DS was too small. The NN3DS fits right in between those two, so I'm really happy.



SanderEvers commented on Guide: How to Transfer from a 3DS to a New Nin...:

@ThomasBW84 I used a MicroSDXC card with my old XL before I imported the new handheld from Australia.

Also I would suggest you FIRST move the files from the SD card on your old 3DS to a MicroSD Card which you insert into your old 3DS before starting the transfer. Which actually makes the transfer a lot easier.

You however need an additional MicroSD card and at least one MicroSD to SD adapter. And a PC/Mac to transfer the files.

Pro tip for people getting a 64/128GB MicroSD XC card, use a Fat32 formatter (google it) to format the MicroSDXC card to Fat32 before copying files to it.



SanderEvers commented on Reaction: Super Smash Bros. amiibo Support Sho...:

Amiibo is a gimmick, yes, but a good one.

I will now put my ideas about some of the issue's:

1. Amiibo aren't used enough. Correct, since we currently only have Smash Bros Amiibo, which are designed to work with Smash Bros. And Smash Bros being the only game that writes to an Amiibo. See where this is going?

Well simple, there is already a second series of Amiibo announced. The Super Mario Series. And there will be more series, just as big important games are released to support them. My guess, there will be a "Legend of Zelda"-amiibo serie with the release of Zelda U. For less important characters there will be Amiibo cards.

2. There is no stock for rare Amiibo. Again, this clearly only is the case for the Smash Bros Amiibo. Nintendo needed to see if their new product is a success at all.

3. They're just physical unlocks / dlc. True for every game that has read support. Untrue for every game that has write support (SSB Wii U, SSB 3DS, Mario Party 10). They could've simply only supported Amiibo in SSB and MP10, but it wouldn't be the same success.



SanderEvers commented on Nintendo Lists Formally Tested Micro SDHC Card...:

I'm also using a 64GB MicroSDXC card in my Aus input new Nintendo 3DS. A Sandisk one, works perfectly.

But I can see WHY Nintendo doesn't advise it, you'll need some understanding of how to format an SD card to FAT32. Going in Windows to Format doesn't work, since SDXC officially only supports exFAT. (and the 3DS doesn't)

You'll need tools like these:

Yes. SDHC = 8GB or bigger and usually needs a firmware update for an older SD card reader.



SanderEvers commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

@Neko_Rukiafan You are still perfectly allowed to post Nintendo video's. Just not make money off them, unless you join their program.

Also @everyone who's against it: you DO NOT OWN any of the games Nintendo creates. Nintendo does. So why do you think it's okay to get free money for someone else's work? It's a plus that they even allow it at all.
