I went through 134 pages of your NX news reactions to find all these dumb mockups

Thought these many concepts deserved their own thread. First, here's what Eurogamer gave us as a working concept:


And we were reminded of this old WiiU prototype:


So NeoGAF got to work.


















Leizt had a lot of angles on this one here.

This is mine and I'm dumb because I didn't read the actual report.

Has there ever been a mockup that actually looked like the real thing? Most seem to be really over the top compared to what companies eventually come up with.
 
Usually internet mockups of devices come across as cool but in reality they look ugly. Expecting it to look just as bad as a wii u pad cut in 3.

Ugh, more gimmicky shit from Nintendo...that I'm still going to buy. I think the hybrid idea is cool. But I hope it looks nice.
 
I'm still waiting for one good concept artwork to show why Eurogamer should be trusted and nothing looks good at all to show how detachable controllers work good
 
All those, yet not one of them would work. It has to not be an ergonomic nightmare as a handheld and have two full, separate console controllers. The guys at Nintendo did not have the easiest of tasks.

I actually like this thread

And of all the NX threads I think this is the most productive and apt one to have

Sorry Neiteio I love you still

Eurogamer's one of the outlets that has been rock solid with these console leaks lately. Kotaku has been just as reliable and has corroborated most of the info.
 
We should give something for the one whose design ends up being the most similar to the final thing, when it's announced. Like a contest.
 
Why can't it be just the same size as an iphone 6/6 plus? The home button could be the analog nub, im sure four small face buttons could fit on the other side.



Instead of this monstrosity which is just way too big even for regular adult hands.

Each side has to work as a full detachable controller.

My expectation is somewhere near Vita size, but we won't know until we see it.
 
Just my opinion, but I really don't think detachable controllers bring much to the table. Like what's the point?

I agree, but for better or worse, they're there, so we can already eliminate all the designs that don't take that feature into account.

Added ergonomics and portability. The thing has to be flat to fit in your pocket, and if you want proper ergonomics the controllers cant be flat. So you just detach the controllers (which aren't flat) and put them in your bag or whatever.

I think it'll be shaped like an eagle, and when you're bored you can make a loud bird-like screech and it'll come flapping through the window, perching on your arm.

"Thanks NX. I really needed to play some Fire Emblem."

Someone draw this concept, pls.
