Nintendo to Launch Hand-Held Device This Year

Post by ADMRL on Thu Jan 28, 2016 7:59 am

research firm IHS Inc is confident that Nintendo will release the next hand held device later this year. The NX hand held devie coming will be the succesor for the Nintendo 3Ds. IHS Technology senior principal analyst Hiroshi Hayase believes that the device will be a portable instead of a controller with a screen like the Wii U.

“We expect a small recovery in shipments of flat-panel displays for game devices because of Nintendo’s new game hardware expected to be released in 2016.”

“Their expectation is that displays sized between 3.1 – 5 inches wide will increase to 16.5 million units this year, growth from 14.1 million units last year. However, data has shown that OLED displays would remain unused by the market.”

It better have good third party support and be easy to develop for, or no one will buy it, and it'll tank just like the Wii-U did.

I agree, I actually had to purchase a second console because Nintendo is having a hard time keeping up, WIi U was the first console released before the other two so it makes perfect since thats its under powered, But the marketing and the wii u being hard to develop for is the problem. Nintendo better bring their A game with NX or its a gone wrap before it even starts.

Well, it makes sense given that the 3DS is on its last legs and has been around for quite a while now.
