While we have all mostly settled on the idea that the Nintendo NX will be Nintendo’s new home console, it is important to note that Nintendo have not ever, in any official capacity, confirmed that it will be one- all they have said is that it will be ‘a new concept,’ or that it is ‘a new dedicated game platform.’ That could mean that it’s a new handheld, or even a software based platform that Nintendo is preparing for smartphones to distribute their games.

Don’t panic, though- that was just me raising alternate possibilities on what the NX theoretically could be. We’ve already heard third party publishers announce games for NX, which are coming to other home consoles, from which we have inferred that it may in fact be a home console. And now, another third party has hinted that it may be a home console after all.

Actually, I think that [the Japanese home console market will] start doing much better,” said Koei Tecmo’s President and CEO Yoichi Erikawa, in an interview with 4Gamer, translated by Siliconera. “The PlayStation 4 has recently surpassed 2 million units in nationwide sales, and Nintendo announced a new ‘machine’ called the NX. From this point forward, I believe that each company will make clear commitments for these machines.”

So whatever the NX ends up being, it is looking increasingly likely at this point that it will at least be a home console of some sort- now we just need to wait for Nintendo to officially reveal the damn thing already.

    I genuinely hope it is a home console – hopefully one more classic and streamlined. Motion controls, 3D, giant screens on controllers, and now this whole cross-play thing… I know they’re trying to innovate, corner the trends, and I understand that Nintendo is a business first and foremost. But people don’t buy the PS4 for the trackpad, or the X-Box One for that terrifying “always-on” eye that watches your every move – they buy them because the consoles have games they want to play. Nintendo has tried so hard to get ahead of the curve that they’re constantly struggling to keep up, and has gone from gaming industry giant to patron deity of pointless gimmicks. Just give us the Gamecube 2.0, a normal, intuitive controller, and some fun new games. Speaking as a lifelong fan, I’d definitely love to play them.

      CEO of Yahoo, Marissa Meyer has gone so far as to Support the practice “Work at home” that I have been doing since last year. In this year till now I have earned 88k dollars with my pc, despite the fact that I am a college student. Even newbies can make 38 an hour easily and the average goes up with time. Why not try this.

      Good for Marissa Meyer. So she will be able to play the new NX from home too. You obviously work from home because no one wants an internet troll at the office.
