Thanks to the NX, and the iPhone 7.
The big question is still that of whether or not Nintendo will be launching their mysterious, enigmatic new NX system later this year. While it has been generally accepted that they will, their radio silence on the matter, as the year continues to while away, is a bit worrying.
However, their manufacturer Foxconn may have just spilled the beans on their plans- in their new earnings report, translated by NeoGAF, the company has projected that it foresees a lot of growth, activity, and movement, thanks to multiple new, highly anticipated devices, including the iPhone 7 and the Nintendo NX.
If true, then this could point at a Q4 release for the console after all- and given that initial reports had pegged a release date for that time frame, and that Nintendo allegedly plans to ship as many as 16 million units of the NX by next March, this does begin to make sense as a rumor.
Hopefully Nintendo can just announce the NX officially some time soon, because all of this speculation and anticipation is beginning to get to me.
