  1. Never heard about them, and just took a look at their webpage. They have an interesting catalogue of all sorts of memories under their roof.

    But, still… Rumors, rumors, rumors… Under the strict NDA Nintendo imposes to its partners, it is really hard to believe such a big company would shout “hey, World, we have a deal with Nintendo for the NX!”

    1. That usually isn’t the kind of thing an NDA covers. THe NX has been confirmed as a console of some kind for the WiiU so memory, and the partnership of a 3rd party provider, is to be expected. There is no details beyond the working relationship, so it could very likely be true

      1. I got the Wii U as a gift and still feel like it was a waste. Bayonetta 2 and Smash was what I wanted the most and neither came until two years later! Still no Zelda either!

      2. Every console has a slow first year. Wii U had some pretty awesome games at the end of its first year though (Pikmin, Mario 3D World, Sonic, Wonderful 101).

        And even better games at the end of its second year (DK, SMASH4, Bayo1/2, Hyrule Warriors, Mario Kart).

        Meanwhile I’m struggling to find good games for my PS4 aside from Bloodborne and Batman. I want to try Until Dawn, but that’s more of a movie than a game. Maybe Street Fighter/Dark Souls 3 will be good. Still, I’m unimpressed by this gen of consoles as a whole. The industry just isn’t what it used to be.

      3. Nintendo is like a fallacious women who makes promises of commitment to the faithfully committed…

        She tells you… I care,, Give me more time,, Give me your money,, Please’understand…

        Yet she keeps “burning” you time after time. You love her so much because of the deep history you have with her you keep giving her chances,, you know she makes you look like a fool but you do it.. Because it’s her,, Nintendo…

        But the “burning” gets old.. She keeps spreading to the world taking it.. only to burn you some more.. How many more times do you expect us to get the clap Nintendo.. You promised you would stop being the gaming harlot, yet you still make it burn…


      4. maybe every Wii U owner in China said that. oh and free online play… what a novelty! why not complain about the lack of chat (because sony ponies don’t have real life friends, just online chat friends) and make yourself sound sort-of relevant. more AAA exclusives than any other system. top selling system in japan. i don’t see a problem with anything except for Nintendo of North America and their horrible marketing and treating us like we are all watching Lambchop. no need to bash one of the most innovative companies in the world. looking forward to the Nintendo area at Universal Studios!!! Saving my money!!!!!


      5. I don’t think I necessarily wasted my money, but I do feel like I would have been better off, buying the Wii U, when there were more games that I was interested in, rather than at Launch. In terms of buying a Console at Launch, I am One and Done.


  2. Hopefully they not cheap with the gigs this time. It was quite stupid to think 8gigs would hold up for 5 years. I also hope they thinking of power while this NX is in R&D. It’s going to be risky and as soon as it is available Nintendo better be thinking about what Microsoft and Sony is going to do after they take the NX back in their R&D and take it apart to figure out what makes it tick. It better not just be just a little bit more powerful than the PS4 like they made the Wii U. It was quite stupid of Nintendo when they didnt see none of this when Project Café was in R&D. They also need to be thinking of a powerful and aggressive name this time.

  3. Well i think the NX will share the same experience for the handheld and I can tell the NX might be more powerful and it will have portable devices in the machine.


  4. Sickr, Can you update this? There is a translation that is not machine translation now.

    Prestigious Japanese videogame console maker Nintendo will launch a new console called NX this year. General Manager of Macronix, CY Lu, said Macronix will provide products for NX and that Macronix has considerable expectations to NX.

    In the afternoon, Macronix had held an online conference for investors. As Nintendo is going to launch new console NX this year, investors concern about if Macronix, which have a long-term cooperative relationship with Nintendo, is still part of NX’s supply chain.

    CY Lu said Macronix will supply memory slots for NX, and that the company has considerable expectation to NX.

    Even though CY Lu declined to comment whether the supplied products are ROM, he said he expects ROM sales this year will be exceptional.

    The person that did the translation says it seems that the reporter is assuming the 2016 release and not the company.
