Assuming the NX is indeed a tablet, will Nintendo be able to deliver the first serious competitor to the iPad?

Not a chance. Nintendo largely focuses on kiddy stuff for their consoles and handhelds, as they know that gaming is a child's hobby. Expect some funny camera filters and maybe a messaging app, nothing more.

If it's a proper tablet then it won't just play videogames dummy.

It can't be "just" a tablet since everyone owns mobile devices anyway, and dedicated mobile makers can generally churn out superior devices in a timely manner. If Nintendo can't match the pace of the industry they'll be in deep shit, which they pretty much can't, so the system will need a hook of some sort.

If it's not a dedicated gaming console, I'm so fucking done with nintendo.

NVidia shield couldn't move units for shit, this will flop just as hard.
It will just play videogames. It's from Nintendo for fucks sake. At most it will have a Youtube and Netflix app.

It's a tablet in the same way the Wii U is a tablet you fucking dumbass.

>> No.56034201

I avoided all the Wii systems because of the fucktarded control scheme.
They need to go back to a normal fucking controller.

Having a giant tablet screen in the middle of your controller was just as bad as the forced WAGGLE controls of the original wii.

Nintendo can potentially offer full games experiences that Apple has been unwilling to do and use that as a USP to get people to migrate to their platform

Imagine buying a tablet... that can also offer fully-fledged console experiences like Mario, Pokémon, Zelda, Monster Hunter etc - and maybe even FIFA and CoD. I'm sure that would give plenty of people pause for thought before buying an iPad.

There's a fuck-ton of technical overlap between a portable console and a tablet, so it makes a ton of sense for Nintendo to go in this direction.

The big question is whether they are capable of creating a competitive tablet OS, development tools and ecosystem when they haven't demonstrated their ability to do it so far.

>> No.56034691

No? It's a standalone powerful handheld. The degree to which is a tablet solely depends on the OS.

What's the difference between a tablet and a touch-screen handheld with removable controls as seen in the pic in OP? Pretty much fucking nothing.

>> No.56035035

You've missed the point of PORTABLE gaming systems entirely.

My Game Boy, Gear Gear and Lynx didn't fit in my pocket if that's your narrow-as-fuck definition

i'm pretty sure wearing cargo shorts is acceptable when you're 10
