Funny this does remind me of the reaction to the Wii Remote.

Except that Wii Remote was actually a new idea to most people. The supposed NX controller is just a circular phone with joysticks in the middle of it. Everyone has already done mobile gaming, and this controller is not enough to make people feel like it's something brand new they just have to try.

whatever screw the haters
see this is what separates ninfans from the rest of yall. At least we have heart and soul, and are willing to stick with our loyalties to the bitter end. Sure we might disappointed now and then, but in the end nintendo in our eyes has delivered. And thats all that matters. We still have faith in something real, and we aren't quick to sell our souls to the fastest processors or the glitziest gadgets.

I believe

if youre a nintendo fan say it with me now. I believe.

I BELIEVE.

Not pathetic enough for a new meme, sorry. Close, but no cigar.

I'm actually pretty down with a screen controller, my main issue (aside from the buttons being touch screen, which... I'd hopefully adjust to.... ugh.) is a straight up oval strikes me as uncomfortable to hold? It could be comfy though. I haven't held it, aha.

I thought I might have waited to not get this on day 1 after being burned by Wii U.

Compelling software or no, I'm definitely waiting. I only tolerate nubs on my handhelds because they're handhelds. If that controller is the HH unit, that can be understandable. But if that is linked to the home console, hoo boy am I sticking with my Wii U until Smash 5.

If there are indeed no physical buttons on the controller, I do not see this console gaining any mass appeal. It will likely be another gimmick that Nintendo is going to have a tough time conveying to the general public, just like with the Wii U. With the Wii at least it was simple, intuitive, and if you show it to somebody, they got it immediately.

EDIT: Also, fighting games are going to be fucking impossible with this thing.

Where's the buttons? Where's the D-Pad? These screens are making it seem much more real but I'm still hoping it's a fake.

That definitely looks like a Vita. Kind of reminds me of some of the mockups for the DS/3DS from way back too.

I'm sure it's been posted, but this thread is moving fast.

Swedish keyboard layout.



DICE, Ubisoft Massive, Mojang?

Ubi is leak capital, so I'll go for division port to NX.
Great catch!

Could still have handles ala the patent. Time will tell obviously. Seems too small tbh
Has anyone considered the possible (affordable) VR applications of a device the size of this controller...?

if its a console controller, that seems really uncomfortable to hold for extended time

unless they make grips included or something

I'm actually pretty happy if this is real. Not because i want it -- it looks like absolute trash.

But it MIGHT mean that Super Mario Galaxy 3 is a launch game for the PS4K/PS4.5

Does anyone know which language keyboard that is? Might be easy to find the leak that way. At least one might guess the region.
Swedish/Finnish

Reddit name is perkele37 which is in Finnish but I'd expect many swedes to know what that means

If the touch-only technology is improved enough over the current state of mobile gaming to where you can actually do "real" gaming on it, why wouldn't people be OK with it?
Never mind that it's not even touch only. There's two analog sticks.
My problem with touch screen games has never been the buttons it's been the fake shitty dpad/analog that doesn't fucking work.

Well, at least it looks nice.

Now I wonder what the handheld looks like if they are using this screen tech.

Nintendo needs to get ahead of this one badly. Talking to random press people at GDC last week, it did seem like Nintendo has some big stuff to show off, but they want to do it on their time frame. Unfortunately, that's no longer possible. Their announcement needs to get moved up. If this is real, then we should know how it works. If it's fake, then the doubt needs to be quelled.

I know that this is not how Nintendo operates, but I would hope for once they would be able to see the writing on the wall and make the more aggressive decision. This is just terrible PR and if I was on the marketing/PR/community teams over there, I'd be trying to turn this into an opportunity to generate buzz rather than trying to ignore it.

Haptic face buttons (which are clearly what the images around this rumor suggest, since the first picture clearly shows a b button on the screen) really wouldn't be that different from physical assuming the haptic technology is well implemented

If this is real I predict that the NX will sell 10 million maximum worldwide. Doesn't seem like they learned anything from the Wii U.

If Nintendo has another failure, are they just done with consoles?

Can't say I'm not worried about this...
I'll hold my judgement until Nintendo explains it to us, but the lack of physical buttons is really sad...
