CD Projekt RED: Nintendo NX “Will Be Fantastic”, Hardware “Much Worse Than New Xbox”
CDPR’s Fabian Mario Döehla offers more info on the NX.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt RED knows a few things about Nintendo’s upcoming NX platform, especially that it will be amazing.
This is according to communications manager Fabian Mario Döehla who told Rocket Beans TV (transcript via Nintengen), “It will be fantastic. As developer [CD Projekt] you get access to the hardware and everybody [at CD Projekt] is looking forward. We know things.”
Döehla also compared the reaction between European and Japanese developers, noting that, “in Japan…they thought it was very good. The Europeans took a little longer…But NX what you hear [of the developers] about NX is all very positive.”
That being said, it seems that, “the hardware will be much worse than the new Xbox.” We’re not sure if he’s referring to the upcoming Scorpio or the Xbox One.
“I think this will never again be the main emphasis in the future [for Nintendo]. Can [the NX] be better than the new Xbox? Take a realistic point of view: is Nintendo able to build a console that has got more power than Xbox?…Affordable? Do they have the contacts to the industrial facilities, resources…[Shakes head several times in denial] And what would be the positive outcome? Who is going to develop games for it?”
