NX Leak from a legit Source
« on: February 28, 2016, 07:50:37 PM »

This user has been right many times in the past.

Let's give some backstory on the source of this leak, shall we? The info comes from Geno, who has quite a history with rumors. More importantly, he has a history of being correct on his rumored information. Here's the rumors that Geno has nailed in the past.
- Nintendo would release a Pokémon game that utilized a full 3D engine
- would be a new type of Pokémon in new said Pokémon game (Fairy)
- older Pokémon would get new abilities and forms (Mewtwo)
- PS4 would be capable of producing modern day graphics on a DX11 level “like Unreal Engine 4 and Frostbite 2
- Microsoft would introduce an omni projection unit that would let game environments to be projected in a near 360-degree fashion around the user (Ilumiroom)
His pedigree speaks for itself, and today he's let loose with a bunch of rumored info on the NX. You can decide how to take the details, but they are certainly interesting nonetheless.
- has a wireless HDMI dongle that attaches flush to the back of the device
- you can pull it out and insert it into any display with a normal sized HDMI output
- device uses an evolved version of the Wii U’s streaming tech to display in HD on the TV screen
- analog controls for movement have small motors in them for full haptic feedback
- haptic example: if you control a character and hit a wall, the sticks move away from the wall to simulate hitting it
- Bluetooth synch with tons of devices, including smartphones and tablets
- you can answer phone calls and display text messages from your phone onto NX screen(s)
- closest in terms of “power” to the Xbox One
- all tech uses the exact same hardware layout as the PS4 and Xbox One
- any game that can run on Playstation 4 or Xbox One can easily run on the NX with near-zero modifications
- this is even more true if the game runs on Android OS or Unreal Engine 4
- one 3rd Party dev says “It’s the easiest device we’ve ever developed for. You just take your code, compile it and it works.”
- look to Pokemon GO to get an idea of the type of social features that will be in NX
- this will take multiplayer, AR and the StreetPass concept to a whole new level
- strengths of the device are its usability and ease of use
- devs describe it visually and functionally as if “Samsung and the Nintendo 2DS” had a baby
- it looks friendly, but unlike what most people believe a Nintendo device to typically look like
- operating system, named NintendOS, is very powerful and has so many modern features of mobile operating systems
- Nintendo is trying to be very careful in showing it off for fear that it would be mistaken as running Android
- very strong networking functions, as it ties into multiple devices and services
- this allows for a very competent and pervasive eco-system designed to constantly involve the consumer’s life
All my thoughts

The short version is. Loving the easy 3rd party news, and loving the fact that you can stream to anything with a HDMI port.

I've heard the same thing. It's exciting enough to make me want to consider getting a Nintendo console again assuming this turns out to be true (Geno has a tendency to be right, but I think there's been some things where he hasn't been). I'm looking forward to this. :)

I also heard that there's been a lot of shake ups at Nintendo where they're promoting younger employees up the ranks to get more ideas off the the ground.

The tediousness of paperwork makes my eyes burn and head hurt. Yet it is a necessary evil we all share. I like swords. Swords are simple. They aren't confusing or evil. Just straight forward implements of death. Have a nice day. ~GW

I remember when 3rd parties went apeshit over the Wii U.  That's why we enjoy so many awesome games on that best selling of all platforms to this day.
