Default Nintendo Begins Distribution of NX Dev Kits

The Wall Street Journal and other reliable sources are reporting that Nintendo has begun distributing NX dev kits to various video game studios. Nothing concrete is known right now except that it may include a home unit and a device for on the go gaming. It's also being reported that the system features so called "industry leading chips". So yeah, this thing could be pretty powerful. So, you excited to hear that we could be seeing NX stuff as early as next E3? Or have you lost complete faith in Ninty?

Game prices are a huge issue for me which is why I haven't bought a Wii U yet even though I can get a deluxe for $200. Pikmin 3 is a game I'd buy but the cheapest I can find for it new is $75 because they stopped printing copies.

And region locking is another issue. I don't think SCEA is going to release a retail edition of Bloodborne: The Old Hunters in the US or Gravity Rush Remastered but at least I can import them. Can't do that for Fatal Frame.

If they address those two issues then I'd buy one eventually.

I love my Wii U but I can understand why people have issues with it.

I hope the NX solves most of Nintendo's major issues. At this point, the best move would be to have a unified system where games can be released on both handheld and console so that they don't have to split resources.

I'll believe the "industry leading chips" part when I see it.

I hate to be that "graphics don't matter" person but specs are irrelevant. By the time it releases, the NX will be outdated already that's just how tech works.

It needs games aka support from 3rd party devs.

The fact that they've updated their developer website (https://developer.nintendo.com/) is a really promising move and makes me feel far more confident in the console than any news of processing power or chips.

I'm hoping the NX is more developer friendly than wiiu, that's part of what drove not nintendo developers away in the first place
