Hello! I've written a list of 15 things I want to see from the Nintendo NX which you can look at here:

[removed]

But I'm interested in what features you would like to see? Things like backwards compatibility and different controller support. What is the feature that you would most like to see out of all the ones you can think of?

Why is your blog calledd retro reviews when you're talking about consoles that aren't out yet?

Backwards Compatibility is a must in my opinion. The rest is kinda dependant on what the system is. Handheld, Home, Micro Console, something else entirely... depending on what it is changes what I expect from it.

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

Making my home console games portable is what I'm really hoping for.

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Prepare to be disappointed.

@arronishere: Because I write about games that are inspired by or sequels to retro games too. The primary focus of the blog is retro reviews but I always play and like writing about newer games as well!

@Octane: Sorry about that! Wasn't sure if self-promotion was allowed in new threads! I'll keep that in mind next time!

Honestly, what I want most from the NX is for it to contradict the negative assumptions people have about it. Like, it'll be underpowered, won't have third party support, won't really make use of its gimmick, etc. That sort of thing.

I'm going to cheat by giving one answer that actually means two things — a unified library.

By that, I mean:

1) An ecosystem that shares a console and handheld library.

2) A unified library of past Nintendo games. No more divided eShops. No more buying the same games every generation and waiting for them to trickle out once again. A single, united digital library of Nintendo games. When I buy a Nintendo game digitally, I want to feel like I'm adding it to my collection for the long haul.

Point number two is more important to me, as you might've guessed.

@MysteryMan23: I definitely agree. Nintendo get a lot of negative press about third party support and use of gimmicks but I actually think both of those things could also be seen as positives. The lack of a huge third party line up means that the focus is almost entirely on Nintendo made games and exclusive game created by third parties which should be what sells consoles. As for the gimmicks, yeah sometimes it is a little bit silly having to blow into the mic to move platforms in Super Mario 3D World and things like that, but when it's used properly like in Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD it really adds to the experiences. So Nintendo need to look at what they do right and really focus on that during their marketing.

@VelvetElvis: The NX absolutely needs a unified library, it's insane that they got away with making you pay twice for digital content to be transfered from Wii to Wii U, I doubt they could get away with it again. You're entirely right by saying when you buy a game digitally you need to have confidence that you're always going to be able to access that game, even on newer consoles.

I want the NX to have an awesome VC library, a long lasting battery life for the controller, some new IP's and most of all a blu ray player

I must admit, I didn't particularly mind the Wii -> Wii U process. You could still play them in Wii mode without paying and the "upgrade" was heavily discounted. What's worse is the way that you can own a VC title on the Wii U but the 3DS eShop still asks for the full price. 70-90% discounts on games I don't mind. No fee would obviously be better but at least if it's heavily discounted I'm not really "paying for content again".

It's kinda like when iTunes upped the quality of their music and allowed you to download the higher bitrate version for nothing. Vs how for movies you have to pay full price if you want the HD version even if you own the SD copy. If the latter offered an "upgrade fee"? I'd probably go for it. But I'm not paying full price for something I already have.

100% this.

I can understand why Nintendo would charge you separately for VC releases on different consoles, if it covered the costs of porting/testing/developing an emulator, however I'd happily pay a premium to have a virtual console library that I could play on any of my systems.

I'd like this to be done as seamlessly as possible too, e.g. when I get home, having played Donkey Kong Country on the bus, I'd love to be able to continue my game on the TV within minutes (or seconds?), and vice versa.

More online multiplayer in their games.

@Yellowkoopa: With 3rd Party support you will probably get that.

Yes. This is extremely important, too. It's so obtuse and frustrating that you can have the exact same game on your Wii U and 3DS, and you can't share saves — and seeing as other platforms have already been doing this for quite some time, there's just no excuse.

I know Nintendo has already announced cloud-based saves in the future (on top of Iwata's comments about an iOS-like platform and console and handheld "brothers"), so hopefully this past generation is the last we'll see of this sort of division.

@gcunit: yes really. It is unlikely that they will make a portable powerful enough to play Home Console games. The idea talked about in that rumor would require constant reliable internet connection, ruining the portable aspect. You wouldn't be able to plag Home Console games anywhere, only places with strong enough Wi-Fi, which wouldn't be many places
