@IceClimbers PersonaIy I would too, but Nintendo would be going against the grain, that aesthetic is now deemed outdated for the past decade or more.

They're coming out with see through Red, Blue, & Yellow 2DS' in Japan, so maybe it's a possibility.

I'd have to day 1 if it came out in see through yellow.

I also like white over black. Not a day goes by I don't regret getting a black N3DS instead of the white one.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

All my Nintendo handhelds since the GBA SP have been blue except the Smash 3DS XL.

Smack bang mid September has played a big role in Nintendo's past. 2005, Iwata showed the Wii remote for the first time. In 2012, we got the release date of Wii U. Both were at TGS I think. Maybe these rumours are BS. And yes Nintendo aren't supposed to be attending TGS this year, perhaps it's a last minute surprise or they'll reveal it in a Direct just prior with some added bonus at the show. While Nintendo aren't attending, most of their major Japanese third party partners are and it would be a missed opportunity if they have to keep quiet about their NX games through Japan's equivalent of E3. For Nintendo in their home country to completely snub it in terms of NX news, I just can't see it happening, it's a massive marketing opportunity.

So in summary, I think we'll get a Direct just prior to TGS with a surprise appearance from Kimishima showing it off on stage during the event. That would make too much sense though so it may not happen.

@SLIGEACH_EIRE If that's the case (and assuming they'll adhere to their regular practices for Directs), it'd mean we'll get a reveal Direct on Thursday 15th, first day of TGS. Two days of prior notice are enough, so that puts us on Tuesday 13th. If they are as quiet around that time frame, I wouldn't expect anything from TGS.

Exactly. I was just going to write that in my follow-up, you saved me the trouble, thanks. If we don't hear anything by Tuesday then nothing's likely to happen at TGS.

@SLIGEACH_EIRE I don't know. If you have a new concept, I think it would be rather irresponsible to reveal it one day and then let every man and his dog announce and demo their games the immediate weekend. I think it needs to be more considered than that. You could be inviting someone's first impression of NX being exposed to RCMADIAX's next 'game'.

@MarcelRguez That is fine for something conventional that everyone 'gets' (Sony/MS). We don't know what the NX has up it's sleeve. If you have third parties showing of games that don't take advantage of NX features, then the NX may get the wrong perception of simply being the most underpowered console at the time (as an example). Nintendo need to control the message by not rush revealing so third parties can hock their wares willy nilly.

@SLIGEACH_EIRE You know what they say, great minds think alike.

@GrailUK This is TGS though, not PAX. The heavy hitters are going to be there, so it would make sense to unveil it before the event, so publishers can go on-record about if this or that game will be on NX or not. Grantedly, that hasn't stopped some devs to announce games already, but now they'll have the chance to actually show those versions.

Besides, people are going to be browsing a lot of news sites to keep up with any announcement. It's a good moment to talk about new hardware.

Although I guess E3 would qualify as such an event too, yet here we are.

EDIT: About your reply to me, I agree with that, but TGS is a hands-on kind of experience, right? People are not going to be confused if they can see the machine on their hands. Besides, we're assuming it's a hybrid. No matter how probable that might be, don't forget that it's not final.

I think they had planned to show it at E3 but then they also planned to release it in 2016(supposedly underwent a hardware upgrade which caused the delay). When it got delayed to March 2017, I'd say that threw a spanner in the works and the E3 reveal had to be postponed as well. Now if you were to transpose its original reveal date and release date with its new release date, then mid October would be the new reveal date. But I don't think that's necessary nor advisable.

This please. As ugly as the PS4 Slim and Pro's designs are, at least they got rid of that stupid glossy finish. Dust, fingerprints, everything on it is visible. Just a matte finish please.

+1 from me too.

@Octane That is a bit of a dilemma for me. Yes, glossy gets all the fingerprints and dust, i have to clean it all the time, but matte just looks so ugly and plain to me. So I don't know what I want. It's style versus practicality.

@Samurai_Goroh I don't know, the GameCube has a matte finish, so does my old DS, my laptop and my phone as well. They all look good in my opinion.

Gloss white (and that lime green) worked on the Wii for me.

However they go about presenting NX for the first time, don't expect Kimishima to be fronting it.

@gcunit Right now, Nintendo's management seems like a triforce of sorts, bear with me:
Kimishima is the Triforce of Treasure, Miyamoto the Triforce of Creativity and Takeda the Triforce of Technology.
Meaning Business, Software and Hardware, respectively. So maybe Kimishima doesn't know how to deal with us and leaves it to Miyamoto and Takeda. I mean, Kimishima used to work in a big Japanese bank, its with the shareholders that he's at home and he probably does a better job reaching them than Iwata did. And that's completely fine. Does Takeda speak decent English? I seem to recall he was involved in the GameCube reveal.
