Gaf has gone to crazy town waiting for NX news. Proof: They suggested playing AC Amiibo Festival.

This is what happens when you keep telling everyone you won't talk about the NX, but then tell us the month it'll be released and a vague statement saying you'll talk about it this year.

It's like they are deliberately playing with your mind to see who will snap. Those that don't are the ones who'll be allowed to experience the "NX".

@FragRed the NX is actually a chain of mental hospitals to help those that have gone crazy waiting

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

The NX is a test to see who shall be the chosen one.

Several years ago, Miyamoto and Iwata were visited by Takemikazuchi, the god of thunder. Takemikazuchi warned both men that on March 2017, demons will invade the human realm and wreck havok. Only one of Nintendo's ardent fanboys is the chosen one, destined to fight the demons and save the world. But this destined one must first be trained, they were told.

Knowing full well that all of humanity was at stake, Miyamoto and Iwata devised a plan. They would test the patience of their fanbase by promising a fake console which they would never announce in order to see which single fan will prove to be patient enough to not go insane as March nears without an NX announcement. This single fan, having proven that he is the most patient person on the planet, would then be trained by Miyamoto-san to master the art of Demon slaying in order for said chosen one to fight back all the demons on March 2017.

It all makes sense.

@Tomires I'm not sure what you mean. Please do elaborate? How is the retweet badges and the time stamp relevant? Also, I doubt Amazon would use such foul language as in the imgur image (and it's the exact same minute as in the earlier pic), so that one's obviously fake?

Tomires

@Moshugan

Not only are they swearing, but there is also a typo. You'd think the Amazon PR guys use a spellchecker, hum. /s

You have basically answered yourself, well done you. The retweet badges (like the timestamp) are exactly the same as https://twitter.com/amazon/status/774024311489167360 .

'How is the retweet badges and the time stamp relevant?'
-> '(and it's the exact same minute as in the earlier pic), so that one's obviously fake?'

EDIT: Nevermind, the RT badges have been updated over the night.

@Moshugan Obviously. You can check the list of people who have retweeted/liked the tweet by clicking respective buttons, they are the same people who supposedly liked the "NX pre-order tweet". Case closed.

People should really put more effort into creating these fake tweets. This is how you do it -> http://imgur.com/a/MiGcZ

Also, reply no. #4000, woo!

@TomJ Are you saying that the NX doesn't exist, that the leaks Eurogamer had were all made up by Nintendo and that third party games such as Sonic and Dragons Quest which have been officially announced to be coming to the NX are all just making it up?

@TomJ So, in order to divert attention from the fact that the Wii U wasn't an enticing console for the general public, Nintendo began to talk about that system's successor, effectively killing whatever little amount of momentum the Wii U might have gathered at the period when it was still getting a decent amount of exclusives.

Classic Nintendo screw-up right there.

Actually, now that I think about it. It makes a lot of sense:

  • Nintendo announces a new system with a gimmick
  • Sony and Microsoft get their Thief Gloves ready to steal those juicy ideas
  • Nintendo reveales the console, the gimmick is that there's no console
  • S&M copy Nintendo's gimmick, stop producing consoles
  • Their PlayStation and Xbox divisions tank
  • Nintendo makes a comeback with an actual console, dominates the market due to a lack of competition

Genius move if you ask me

@TomJ Stuff like motion controls and cameras existed before the Wii too, Nintendo was hardly the first to come up with the idea: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/54/Eye...

So no, I don't think the companies are afraid of other companies copying them. They shouldn't be at least. Unless you want to argue that it took Sony four years to ''copy'' the Wii Remote with the PS Move. If it takes that long, then there's no worry in revealing the NX a couple of months earlier. TBH, whatever it is, I don't think it'll become as mainstream as the Wii and I don't think that Sony or Microsoft are really worried by what Nintendo is doing.

@Octane Copying wasn't so much about being worried by what Nintendo was doing, but seeing that there was money to be made. Any industry competitor will copy another competitor when it's found a new market within that industry.

If the NX novelty is worthwhile then it's always worth protecting.

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

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Don't worry everyone, Nintendo are gonna leak a report that an announcement this week will be made about the NX reveal... and then proceed to do nothing leaving the entire internet on edge and the verge of becoming ultra paranoid.

I wouldn't go that far, I don't think you can say the NX won't be as big as the Wii. It might end up being that sort of platform. But even so, I think it is fair to say that whatever Nintendo does it probably won't impact the PS4 and XBOne much. I'm fairly sure that they're after different markets entirely. Which is fine because the industry is big enough for that.

@skywake I truely think that the Wii was a one-hit wonder. Even if the NX catches on, I don't think it'll reach the Wii (or DS in case of a handheld) levels of success. Chances of that happening are way too slim. I certainly wouldn't bet on it.

This week should be a pretty busy week for news. CoroCoro scans should be coming in either today or tomorrow, while the next Sun/Moon trailer drop is on Wednesday. Plenty of Pokemon news to go around!

This week is also TGS. Sony's conference is on Tuesday, which should be good. There's a possibility that 3rd parties release trailers for games that could be coming to NX, but I wouldn't necessarily expect it.

Of course, there's always the possibility that Nintendo announces the NX reveal date either tomorrow or Tuesday.

We are not gonna hear anything about the NX this week.*

*I am always wrong.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@GrailUK I'm terrible with predictions and I also think we won't hear anything about the NX this week.

It's a sign.

I agree that I don't think we'll see anything NX related... from Nintendo. I think we might see some Japanese 3rd parties confirm their games are coming to NX at TGS. As to what games those are, I have no clue.

At the very least we might see some DQXI footage.
