Well, it's more than obvious that he's not really there to represent CD Project. One example, he's saying "America has some of the most intelligent people. At the same time they've got Texas." It's more like a podcast between two friends.

Not sure if he honestly thought that NX thought it was shown at E3, he seems to wonder why the other guy did not check it out (seems he thought Zelda was shown for NX?).

Lol why would this damage cdpr reputation.
Because you cannot have jokes in gaming communities. Everything must be taken seriously. It's the best thing ever or the worst thing ever, black or white...shades of grey do not exist he
- why is still sounding more and more like an analogy of the gaming industry as a whole

But devs are actually excited. That's the main takeaway from this.
Devs are always "excited" before release.

I wish that Digital Foundry cared about Nintendo and would try to source some real, anonymous dev opinions. Unfortunately, Nintendo is just dead to the general gaming media for good.

It should go without say, Nintendo can not afford to make what MS is making, its not their game anymore to push those kind of specs.
They can afford to do it; it's just that it'll flop so hard that every single Nintendo fan and hater will have their head spun off.

He's just messing with the host. Fabian Döhla (the PR guy) and the guys from this 24/7 Twitch channel Rocketbeans are good friends for years now. Fabian Döhla even has his own show there "Almost Döhli".

Don't Post Interviews or News from languages you don't understand. There may be a reason GermanGaf didn't post this interview or quoted things from this
Yeah. If this thread got started at a time when Germany is actually awake all the hopes and dreams probably would've been shut down a lot earlier.

Wow what I've heard about the German sense of humour really is true. I don't see anything resembling a joke in the quote in the op..
Because the quote is taken out of context. And what Fabian said was not meant as a joke. As far as he knows devs are excited for NX. He just jokingly made it seem like he knew more about it than he actually does. He also jokingly claimed that the NX was on the show floor at E3 just to mess with the other guy. Again: this was not a serious interview, more of a conversation between old friends. They were clearly just fooling around. I can't believe that we know have a thread with 14 pages about it..

Indeed, the general gaming media hasn't talked about Zelda: Botw at all in the past few days

You're pretty talented

Touché. I actually kinda expected that argument, but I wasn't sure how else to word it. I guess they're dead on the hardware side or something. Or, the gaming media doesn't care about Nintendo a fraction as much as Sony or MS, and thus doesn't care to actively seek information on Nintendo hardware anymore. Either way, Digital Foundry/Eurogamer has put a ton of effort into getting info on Neo and Scorpio, but seeming haven't even tried to learn anything about NX. It says a lot imo.

Eurogamer are based in Brighton in UK, they will obviously have many friends and contacts as there are quite a few (or there was before Lionhead) Sony and MS devs in the UK.

For Nintendo, I just cannot imagine there being much information to be found in UK. If we get Nx leaks, more likely someone linked to ubi france or the like, or Japanese.

I love new hardware leaks and discussions, we are starved.

Lol, Fabian Döhla gaffed neogaf.
He's a joker, don't take him word for word.
Man, and people think Giant bomb is funny...
If you guys would understand German and listen to Play 3 podcast which had him as a guest you wouldn't believe what they're talking about.
Fabian Döhla is such a amazing guy and is highly entertaining.

For the Nintendo fans:

Schade.

Naja.

You think NX will have 6 tflops?
Oh god no... Ok, it was a "go without saying" thing... I thought I missed something more specific, as in some actual NX hardware specs.

I don't even see the point in comparing things to Scorpio... or even talking about Scorpio... NX only needs to be compared to current hardware, and even that is debatable. Nintendo is likely doing some kind of new interface or controller gimmick which will negate a reasonable spec comparison anyways.

The thing is that they haven't even gone as far as acknowledging its existence. On top of that, other sources have looked into the other hardware well but continue to only post about NX when some crazy, negative rumor/hoax or weird controller patent pops up. They know that they're audience considers Nintendo a joke, so they only post about them when it's an opportunity to laugh. It's all Nintendo's fault of course and only Nintendo can change it, but still.

Yeah, you're right there - not to speak for the good bods at Eurogamer, but Nintendo's UK core is pretty small compared to Sony and MS. They have a bigger 'base' in Germany, whereas the other two have more dedicated teams (of which I'm part of) in the UK.

Take in mind that historically Nintendo UK is very, very low on the totem pole. And as such, are less likely to get info. Which, in turn, means even less chances of a 'leak'.

Anyone saying that news vendors aren't actively looking for NX info is mad. You see the sheer amount of clicks and shares any NX news gets these days - anyone breaking genuine NX news would instantly gain a massive amount of credit and audience bump. The problem is, there's a severe lack of said genuine info, and far too many fakes, the controller one being the one which has made most journos very, very cautious.

If there's nothing out there coming from big sites, it means there's nothing to report.

You make bizarre statements to get attention, don't you? :)

Anyway, I believe everyone is trying. People who does know are not talking. Nintendo is extremely serious about keeping the NX a secret until the company is ready.

CDPR just shot themselves in the foot.

He also says devs are always excited about new hardware.

Oh, and when he said that NX probably isn't going to be better than "the new Xbox", he meant the One S. Though again, that's as good a guess as anybody's else.

Fun fact: He actually said "spectacular".

I love how, now that we know the interview was a joke, it can now be spun into him directly saying negative comments.

Developer that has never published a game on a Nintendo platform shits on a Nintendo platform?

Well I never!
What? Now now, the joke might've been shitty, but it's not what you wrote. No dev, and not exactly shitting on it, but a PR dude personally looking forward to it.
For the use of sarcasm, i'd encourage the use of smileys!

Man, i hope Nintendo at least gives a tentative timeframe for the NX event at their business thing next week (or this week?).

OP, I blame you for this shit comment.


1. It was some external PR guy.
2. It wasn't a professional interview.
3. He was just fucking with a pal.
4. The other guy even said "don't believe his lies".

I'm just saying it like it is.

******************************************************************************************

The Witcher series developer CD Projekt Red believes that the NX “will be fantastic.” That’s according to the company’s communications manager Fabian Mario Döehla, who spoke in vague terms about Nintendo’s new console during a Rocket Beans TV interview as translated by NintenGen.

Here’s the full exchange between the two sides:

Host: What do you know about NX?

Fabian: It will be fantastic. As developer [CD Projekt] you get access to the hardware and everybody [at CD Projekt] is looking forward. We know things.

Host: Are you lying now?

Fabian: No, no.

Host: Sometimes I cannot tell if you are telling the truth or not.

Fabian: No, no! It was like this in the past as the Wii prototypes came in, back then called “Revolution”. It was so funny that in Japan they were all very excited at the developer studios of SEGA, they thought it was very good. The Europeans took a little longer. Like “Well, maybe this doesn’t work”, you know, because it was technically just a GameCube. It was not much more. But NX what you hear [of the developers] about NX is all very positive.

Host: But the hardware will be much worse than the new Xbox.

Fabian: I think this will never again be the main emphasis in the future [for Nintendo]. Can it [NX] be better than the new Xbox? Take a realistic point of view: is Nintendo able to build a console that has got more power than Xbox?

Host: In theory it is possible.

Fabian: Affordable? Do they have the contacts to the industrial facilities, resources… [Shakes head several times in denial] And what would be the positive outcome? Who is going to develop games for it?

*They go on to talk about SNES, 32X, Dreamcast etc*……Fabian: But anyway, I am really looking forward to NX.

Host: I see. But what kind of console will it be? Will it be a handheld? Or…

Fabian: It will be spectacular!

Host: *Jokingly* Nah, you know nothing. I’ll have a look in the chat.

Fabian: I’ll not make the mistake to reveal a console again. Not at this time.

Host: But if – please in my show.

Fabian: If yes than with you tonight in your pool. [Talking about the pool and some private stuff. The Interview moves on in a different direction.]
