Default The NX General Discussion Thread

The latest rumor we have is one where Nintendo has filed a patent for a console with no disk drive. Here's an article.

Companies file patents for a bunch of things but it's something to speculate on.

Any other news/rumors?

Wasn't there a rumor about them going back to cartridges/cards for NX?

I honestly don't know but what would the benefits of going back to a cartridge based system? Faster loading times?

All their handhelds use cards.
If they're actually making NX a hybrid system or economy or whatever you want to call it then it would make sense to continue that tradition.

Im not opposed to this at all. Bring on the unified OSes! Definitely. As long as Nintendo allows ACCOUNT based licensing and only having to buy ONE license to play on EVERY system.

I don't know how I feel about the possibility of the CONSOLE games going back to cartridges. I highly doubt this is the case, as even though memory is a lot cheaper now, game are a lot bigger, so memory is not going to be cost effective yet for tens of GBs per game. And Digital Only, no thank you.
