Another day, another Nintendo NX leak.
This new one comes to us from Nintendo Life’s Liam Roberts on Twitter, who had a user send him a screencap from a survey sent out by the tracking firm GFK. This survey has prematurely leaked some details on the upcoming, enigmatic Nintendo NX system, it seems.
The leak seems to mention that the console will be capable of 4K video streaming, and that the Nintendo Network will be a major part of the system, allowing for gameplay sharing, as well as Achievements and community interactions. The games will apparently have some kind of connectivity between the console variant of the system, as well as the handheld variant, and will be 900p/60FPS.
That last point is particularly bizarre, because rendering resolutions are never listed on spec sheets- not only that, but a console never caps the resolution that it can output at unless there is a hard, hardware level cap on it. What with even the Wii U being capable of outputting at 1080p, it’s a little incredulous that the NX would suddenly decide to knock itself down to 900p.
Not only that, but apparently the contents of the box the system comes in seem to be listed in this document for some reason- and while they mention a censor bar, and a controller, it seems as though the system does not come with a power cord.
Fancy that, now.
This one’s probably fake, but rumors like this will become more and more prevalent the longer we go without some official news. Come on, Nintendo- time to take the wraps off of whatever crazy thing you’ve been working on this time.
