Thread Update:

After I tried to get people to predict when we'd get NX general info, Emily Rogers, someone kwown to have connections with nintendo insiders, said that we'd get info these coming days. Other gaffers with access to this sort of info confirmed Emily's claims:

As I said on Twitter earlier today, I expect something to come this week and will be legit surprised if nothing happens.

after that, Neogaf bursted in Hype and mods decided to keep it here in one place. New news will be posted if/when they appear, there is nothing official as of Wednesday afternoon, nintendo hasn't opened their mouths at all, you don't need to read all the 100+ pages if that's what you are looking for.

Neogaf's Moderation team has an issue with huge hype megathreads that rely solely on unofficial twitter accounts (rumor, leaks, etc) and in this case, because Emily Roger's has been very upfront about her claims, Neogaf is taking the following stance:

All right, since it's clear this thread is only about one thing:

1.) If Emily Rogers is wrong on this one, as judged at the end of Friday, we're prohibiting future Emily Roger posts and discussion.
2.) This thread will also get shut down and you'll have to wait for actually believable new news on the system in order to have a new thread, or wait until Nintendo's fiscal call on the 26th.

If you want further explanation as to why the moderation team has a problem with this type of threads, here a comment by Nirolak

We don't want threads that are just constant GIF spams, train pictures, and "OMG I'M GOING TO EXPLODE!!!" posts, along with scouring the internet for every last unbelievable rumor and giving it a platform, which encourages people to post even more BS.

This is why we keep rebooting these threads around actual rumors and new points, even if they're pretty light.



------------------------------------------------------------------

(THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL THREAD CONTENT BEFORE IT TURNED INTO HYPE-MEGATHREAD)

it's sunday and we have no NX info, just several NX speculation/opinion threads so let's make this.

For every question, choose ONE of the 5 possible options.

1) When will nintendo announce that theyll fully reveal their new NX console?

.- Q4 2016
.- Q1 2017
.- Q2 2017 (E3 is here)
.- Q3 2017
.- Q4 2017

2) When will Nintendo fully reveal the NX?*

.- Q4 2016
.- Q1 2017
.- Q2 2017 (E3 is here)
.- Q3 2017
.- Q4 2017

3) When will the NX be available in stores?

.- Q1 2017 (Nintendo said March 2017 so if you trust them, this is what you choose)
.- Q2 2017
.- Q3 2017
.- Q4 2017
.- Beyond, in 2018

4) Joker Question Name ONE first party IP you think will appear in the NX's launch window (3 months after release) that isn't Zelda.

RULES

.- Quote, erase the question and just put your answers like this, add a comment to encourage dialogue

1.- Q4 2016
2.- Q1 2017
3.- Q1 2017
4.- Metroid (lol)

.- you can't change your votes as soon as question 1 is answered by nintendo. things will unfold at differente points in time so just vote and leave it there.

.- "Fully reveal" means we will see the hardware itself, the final name, and how it works. Comments by nintendo representative aren't considered (for example, someone form nintendo confirming it's an hybrid in a random twitter post)

.- Release means whichever part of the world gets it first. If they release first in Japan and months later elsewhere, the correct answer is the japanese Launch.

.- I will count votes and we will see how GAF trusts nintendo or not at the end of it all.

Have fun and please behave. (I'll vote later)

FINAL UPDATE,

I can understand but this could be an interesting document when everything is said and done, if I were a mod I'd be curious to know whether people really trust nintendo regarding their dates.

I will do my part and keep count of everything, if it remains open

Way too much NX threads going around GAF.

Honestly I feel that people should just lay off the speculation and wait for concrete news to appear.

f I were a mod I'd be curious to know whether people really trust nintendo regarding their dates.

Nah, more than anything, there are quite a few number who are sick and tired of seeing NX spectulation threads popping up all the time in GAF.

1: This fall/holiday season
2: This fall/holiday season
3: Next March
4: Zelda. Think next big Nintendo release will be summer, fall or holiday. Possibly 3D Mario or Retro studios game. Maybe both if we're lucky, one summer, one holiday. Guessing 2017 March Zelda, 2017 Holiday Mario, and 2018 winter/spring Retro to round out first year.

Twist: There is no NX
only Zuul

It turns out NX was right there in your heart all along.

1. Q1 2017 (after holidays)
2. Q1 2017 (1-2 weeks after the previous announcement)
3. Q2 2017 (slight delay to be ready for summer)
4 Animal Crossing mobile tie in

More and more, I feel like GAF mods really ought to make a rule about no NX discussion until Nintendo confirms an announcement.
