July would seem awfully early if mass production starts in say May. August or September would be more likely based on past windows on mass production starting.
That said with Nintendo can never tell.
2 Months is enough time for production based on history especially if its using tech that is not in risk of low yields. Nintendo for instance got its first delivery of CPUs for the Wii September 1st 2006 and was on shelves November 19th
That is not strange. If I remember correctly full scale PS4 manufacture started in ~ early September for mid-November launch.
Huh, I would have thought you'd need a bit longer.
yeah i really don't know about that. games would need to be finished for the machine in early may at the absolute latest.
I would guess that some 3DS software like MH Stories and Snack World will be cross gen.
I'm sad that there are zero rumors of AMD being key partner in production of next Nintendo console. Nintendo needs to get their core hardware into modern times. It's way past time to move away from Gamecube CPU architecture.
Well AMD said they have a console contract for 2016 and also said they want to get the contract for a handheld so it's actually likely they are the partner. Also AMD has worked with Nintendo on their consoles for nearly 20 years now.
