napalmninja commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

While I would like Nintendo to deliver an innovative console/handheld, I just don't think there is much room to innovate in that space unless VR really takes off. However I think there is a great potential to bring innovative games. This current generation has brought a large amount of blockbuster games that didn't live up to the hype, and I think Nintendo is in a prime position to deliver that truly next-gen experience that people want, even if their hardware isn't as strong.

napalmninja commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

@Quorthon Yeah I guess android powered was the wrong way to put it. It's still a little early for me and I've barely gotten any coffee yet. But the point I was trying to make is that a console running an android os wouldn't get support from third parties, and the only Call of Duty games they would get would be Call of Zombies: Duty Warfare and various games like that. Seeing as how they blamed tablets for the Wii U's failure it would make absolutely no sense to try and compete with phones and tablets again by making an android based console. And even though Android is open and easy to use it still won't work well as a console, just look at Ouya and see how well that did.

@TheRealThanos I'm with you on NX being on par with the current generation. Shigeru Miyamoto said that part of the Wii U's failure was because tablets were already doing more than the Wii U by the time it released. By that logic it would make absolutely no sense for them to adopt an android driven console. Plus the creator of Metroid Prime stated that if he were making a new Prime game it would definitely be on the NX, and I highly doubt an android powered weak console would have a game like that.

Also I would say a holiday 2016 release date isn't impossible simply because if it does run on similar architecture as other consoles, then the third party games releasing next year could easily release on the NX at the same time as the others. I still firmly believe NX is a handheld and console hybrid that works similarly to the Vitas remote play, but better. This would allow them to merge their console and handheld divisions, and produce even more games for a singular console instead of having to support two at once.
