OP, I blame you for this shit comment.


1. It was some external PR guy.
2. It wasn't an interview.
3. He was just fucking with a pal.

I'm just saying it like it is.
No, you're blowing the statement out of proportion in the opposite direction even after knowing it was a meaningless joke.

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..
Hard to read sarcasm from it. I wonder if it was all a joke in the live stream? I mean the host actually says he can't tell what is a joke and what isn't.

I highly doubt CDPR has NX Devkits (given that their games don't necessarily fit into what Nintendo does and they've never shipped a game for a Nintendo console before) and I doubt even more that Fabian would know anything about it, even if they did.

I still have to meet a single person who actually knows what the NX really is. Given that we're like 10 months away from launch, that's fucking crazy or just confirms that Nintendo is just trying to stem it with First and Second Party titles alone for the time being, which might just work if they unify the devteams they have on 3DS and WiiU titles.

Edit: please lock that was a troll interview... who the heck give troll interview when being a professional ?! that guy can go *************
It was no real interview. Unless you think PR people talk about being in the pool together again, someone being shot in the US again (somewhere nearby) and gentrification + some talk about shoes.

The interview was one big joke.

Wait, was that from the interview or Twitter? Assuming that he means XboneS is still silly unless we're back on the hybrid train and Mahler was right all along, but I'd still like to confirm this one.

Some of you guys need to chill out. There is no new info in this thread. Wait for the NX reveal.

Fabian Doehla wasn't joking in him referencing developers being very excited about the NX. He also leaked the original Xbox in 2000 by mistake.

Why don't one of you ask him directly about this? Read the context of the interview as well, that part wasn't a "joke" ;)

Man, this just keeps going. It was not a serious interview and was never portrayed as such. There was no journalism or PR talk going on, just two old friends fooling around. There is nothing more to dicuss.

Sadly they oversaw that part.

He was genuine about developers being excited for NX.

The NX specs will be fine. Relax guys.

As I've said, it's not even a proper interview, more of a vlog.

if I recollect correctly, he said "the new Xbox" and later "and there's the Scorpio". I'll rewatch and update this post.

Update: Etienne wondered about the NX in comparison to the new Xbox and then Fabian said "and there's also the Scorpio" and went on to estimate the NX below the new Xbox, so they've got to mean the One S.

But that's old news, which he might just have been referencing. He later on also went to say that devs are always excited about new hardware.

"Devs are excited" doesn't really tell us anything. Devs were excited about the Wii U, too. New hardware is always going to be exciting for devs because they offer the potential for new customers and greater sales if the audience is there. However, if people aren't buying the hardware (and the userbase mostly purchases Nintendo titles), that excitement amounts to nothing.

He's backtracking because he was likely pressured by Nintendo or CDPR to keep quiet and do damage control.

Nobody is supposed to be talking about the NX until Nintendo reveals it.
Not sure if serious.

Come on now, while that part about devs being excited seems to be true (and overblown at the same time), the rest of the interview was a joke. No backtracking, no damage control. Just a joke interview.

Oh, he's serious. Trust me.

Well, that's damning. Please be $150 or a hybrid.

Edit: Well, now that we have 100% confirmation that NX is just a last-gen piece of hardware again... My hype is down the toilet. I'll pick up a used Wii U for Zelda I guess, and wait for the next Pokemon before buying NX, which is hopefully just a handheld to justify being so much weaker than Xbone... I need some time. This is devastating.

I don't think he actually said enough to ruffle any feathers. It was nothing substantial so I very much doubt he was given a gag order.

I already told that guy that he should be more carefull with his words as a professional if he doesn't want to loose credibility and I mean it. Specialy from a PR.
So next time he made a joke, he should clearly say it right after his joke and not wait to say it after his statement been made public.

Social media has ruined news forever.

I fully expect to see this post copied on C List news sites before the end of the day. Good job OP

Relax, it doesn't mean anything. He argued that Nintendo just weren't structurally able to build something that high-tech. He's talking out of his ass like any Gaffer.
