A lot of people are bullish on whatever Nintendo have planned next- their upcoming system, the NX, is an enigma, and it may have lost a lot of goodwill and hype thanks to some decisions Nintendo have made recently about when to unveil and release it, and thanks to some rumors that have started leaking from some trusted quarters lately, but it is a major new system launch, and a lot of people expect great things.
Among those who expect Nintendo to bounce back after the ghastly showing of the Wii U are leading video game retailers GameStop, who, it seems, expect the Nintendo NX to deliver $7.5 billion worth of sales within its first two years alone. Considering that GameStop have been among those who have most openly and harshly criticized the Wii U, they must know something if they are projecting a turnaround like this- exactly what does Nintendo have planned here?
Whatever it is, I think this is reason enough to maybe look forward t
o Nintendo’s next venture. The NX will be make or break time for them in the gaming hardware business, at least on the console side- I think Nintendo do understand the gravity of their situation, they wouldn’t be completely foolish with how they go about it.
