I hope so. A little voice in the back of my head is saying that after this video they'll go radio silent for months again.
It wouldn't make sense if they did this. Only reason they were radio silent in the first place was to wait for the right time to to unveil it. Also supposedly it LAUNCHES in a few months.

Worst case scenario they'll go radio silent for several weeks. Not months.

Wait, why do you say that? The one on the right looks exactly the same as the one on the left, just lying down on its back...
It's definitely attached to a dock there, even though the one standing up also seems to be attached. Reason being it's heavily rumored/confirmed that there IS a dock for the system, and we see a power port there.

I wonder if I should actually preorder the console so I can have it day 1 by amazon. Maybe a day early. Yet i have to see it and the price.

Oooooh oh oh ok, that makes way more sense. Thanks for the clarification hah! Reading is difficult sometimes.
It's cool. I do think that RDR2 will eventually end up on the PC. The NX is the big question. Like I mentioned earlier, Rockstar hasn't released their two big open-world franchises (GTA and RDR) on a Nintendo console before. That's why I think it'd be such a big deal if they did. If Rockstar of all companies are viewing Nintendo that differently, then it would absolutely be a sign that something about Nintendo has changed dramatically.

It's a bit alarming that they will finally show what the competitors can "copy" in only 3 minutes.
It's just a home console on the go? :/

I hope that the reveal makes you happy, sincerely :)
Aww bud, GAF is here for you... we will have TONS of insane threads about every little detail as we move toward release, don't you worry.
Thanks guys! I look forward to the reveal and whatever crazy discussions/rantings come with it. I guess we'll have until at least March to keep this thing going.

Again, I very much appreciate the kind words.

There's a reason Nintendo has waited this long to unveil the platform. They clearly want a short announce-to-release cycle. I'd expect Nintendo to basically be "all in" on NX starting tomorrow. We should start getting new information on a regular basis from here on out.

Yeah, Emily deserves all the credit (and apologies) in the world. Things were getting really ugly in the NX Speculation thread today.

  • 0:00-1:59 shot of the curtain, slight movement suggests its a video, but nothing happens
  • 2:00-2:20 more movement, Roundabout by Yes starts playing
  • 2:21 Mario pulls back the curtain, last 40 seconds is just this as Roundabout keeps playing.
It's a "preview trailer"

All I'm expecting is a lot of shadows, a silhouette reveal, a Zelda sizzle segment, and some kind of apology and more info coming soon

I'm ready to ride the



I love the idea of a hybrid, since getting all the Nintendo games on one platform would be amazing. I'm just worried about the power/performance level.
Exactly, combining both their Wii U type console game effort with 3DS games would be brilliant.

They have no choice but to get it right this time.

Please be good.....pleeeease!
I feel pretty confident. They have seemed to be in a good place with their attitude/outlook lately, and Splatoon showed that they are getting a bit more flexible and adventurous with their software, and indeed development approach in general. Combine that with an affordable system with no droughts and performance somewhere around what the rumors suggest....

I really hope we get some launch lineup info next week.

Uh... Well honestly (if this is legit) I respectfully disagree.

There's certainly confirmation of a dock existing, but the handheld certainly has to have its own power port if it's going to actually be portable. Also this image does not show any clear attachment point. Keep in mind this is a devkit too, and the handheld portion certainly would require a lot of different input ports.
