Well the last time a japanese company was "working" on something, it was back in 2013 with KH3, so we have a while to wait.

It should be made clear that there was nothing in the statement to suggest that it is referring to a home console rather than a handheld, unless there's been some clarification since the original announcement that I've missed. Personally I think a handheld's far more likely, since by the time we get to 2017 which is when this thing will likely be releasing the 3DS will be 6 years old and around the time period nintendo usually replace systems.

Either way I'm excited mind.

We should wildly speculate about the codename. NX = Nintendo X? Nintendo Cross as in cross-play/functionality? Hybrid home console/handheld? NeXt console? WHO KNOWS

I'm gonna try and stay away from all this news of a new console being released purely because I feel I haven't spent enough time on my Wii U. I want to be fulfilled and believe my console has served it's purpose to it's full extent before I begin to get hyped for another one.

Plus, I'm rather skeptical of Nintendo's foray into mobile gaming and the idea of linking their new venture into this business model with a new console, and I'm especially skeptical of this new membership scheme also.

I will just have to wait and see from the sidelines

How do you even take pre-orders on an abstract concept?

It's easy, you just get gullible people to hand over their money to you and then send them an email saying thank you.

If the markets there for taking pre orders then stores will start taking pre orders, goodness knows why people would actually want to put a deposit down for a console no one knows anything about is slightly confusing though.

Frankly its absurd that they'd open pre-orders on a console that a) just been formally announced and b) that no-one except Nintendo high ups have any knowledge of. Gullible just doesn't cover it.

I think the people who place pre orders now are those who are solidly loyal to Nintendo, and will buy the console/handheld regardless of what it does and how many bells it has.

With Nintendo's move to Mobile, and the codename as 'NX', it doesn't half have me wondering if this 3rd Pillar is in fact their very own Smart Phone as opposed to an actual WiiU/3DS successor.

Saying that, it does say "Dedicated Game System". And we know Ninty enough by now not to not include all the other Multimedia type drives that other systems utilise.

Either way I'd buy one. That's for sure. =)

I'd bet good money that it's not. That market is complex, fiercely competitive, and not something Nintendo would want to throw away money into.

True. But Nintendo have been looking into that sort of market since the GBA era, I remember with the initial DS announcement that they had plans to use a telephone-type communicative device (which obviously got abandoned for flipnote further down the line).

Sure, it's fiercely competitive. But what market isn't these days? I think game mobile development is a step forward for them, and a dedicated gaming device with smartphone capabilities, on contract/less with Wifi/4G would be a move forward for them into the wider world. They can take lessons learnt from the Vita on that front at the very least.

The lesson learnt from Sony, if anything, is that PlayStation Mobile failed and will be completely gone by the end of this year. No one really bought into the idea of a Playstation phone as far as I'm aware.

It was announced in 2015 that PlayStation Mobile will be shutting down. The storefront will be closed on July 15, 2015 and the service will shut down September 10, 2015, after which point it will not be possible to activate devices for PlayStation Mobile or download existing purchases.

Haha! I totally forgot about that!

Fair enough. But I still think Nintendo have stronger IP to do better on that front regardless. The NX is more likely to be a console outing to succeed where the WiiU isn't. I'm just musing on an idea that could one day be realised since Nintendo is headed in that direction.

I remember how ridiculed the N-Gage was over how awkward it was to use both as a phone and while playing games. The screen just didn't work and it was just too fiddly, but the main gripe being you had to practically disassemble the phone to change games. Didn't it last around a year or so before it got dropped?

I do remember hearing about PS Mobile but I didn't realise it was still going. I remember hearing whispers about it and what seemed to be a quiet launch then nothing. I though it got discontinued eons ago.

Tentatively looking forward to this. Well, if there's any console of the next gen I'll be getting, it'll be this. But by the time the next era comes I might have gone off consoles altogether. Still, Nintendo do some of their best when they are somewhat down in the dumps. Hopefully they're waking up again after the Wii U has been not quite a success.

I believe that it was thought that there would be a handheld and home version of their new console but I wouldn't imagine the 3DS being scrapped any time soon

I hope not as they've obviously just updated the 3DS, as they aren't even announcing any info until next year at some point (most likely E3) it could obviously still be a couple more years down the line whether it be handheld or home console.
