If you’re always looking for the next big thing, Nintendo is Almost ready to reveal it. Before a reveal happens however, EB Games will already allow you to pre-order the console.
Announced in a message to their fans on Facebook, EB Games Australia will allow you to pre-order the Nintendo NX before anyone else in the world has their pre-order available, if you’re into that. Walk-in pre-orders are the only method available at this time and no price has been listed publicly. A statement by Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata announcing the Nintendo NX following along side their mobile gaming initiative, “As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand new concept under the development codename ‘NX’.”
With our suspicions confirmed after AMD discussed their growing dedicated processor development, Nintendo has opened the doors to new options in the gaming market. What the specifics of this hardware is has yet to be seen. Rumors have long stood about a console that hybrids itself with a DS-like platform, allowing the same games in the home as on the go, but we won’t know exactly what’s coming until Nintendo is ready. Maybe that will be E3 of this year? Time will only tell.
