    I wonder if NX is replacing the wii u or it is something new like a 3rd console to go along with the wii u and 3ds. I can't see it being a 3ds replacement due to the new 3ds models.

    What does dedicated mean? Is it a streaming device or a real console?

    I would like a home system, so I could play my 3DS games on my TV. I have a 3D TV, so that would be cool.

    I just want a hybrid of a home console and a handheld that some people have been murmuring about. An idea like that shouldn't fly over Nintendo's head.

    I don't understand. Sounds like streaming? What a tease.

    I will never buy streamed games. This is just another step of corporations to get more control over their content. Even worse than DRM. I just want to buy it and have control over it, as I please.

    This info is really too vague to assume anything good or bad at this point.

    I'll come back next year.

    Well, as long as they let the Wii U have it's run before releasing whatever this is...

    I doubt that NX will actually mean anything by the time whatever this is gets released, but part of me can't help but hope that the full production name of this thing is the NX-01.

    This is exactly what I'm hoping it will be. This is what I posted over at Kotaku in the thread about the NX:

    Hmm, well, I had been considering a Wii U, but if they're already talking about it's replacement, maybe I should just wait it out.

    Nah, don't let it hold you back. This is the normal development cycle. The Wii U came out in 2012. We'll probably see this at E3 2017, with a release around 2018. That will mean the Wii U had been out for 6 years, which fits that classic release model. The Wii, 360, and PS3 sticking around for as long as they did was actually pretty unusual.

    It would be awesome if it was a console that would let me play my 3DS games but also Wii-U games. I was always interested in some of the games, since I got the 3DS. But I found the Wii-U too expensive, after I just bought a PS3 last year. But if it was a console which could handle both... well, that would be awesome! :)
