I remember us talking about this awhile back and Nintendo kept denying it. Guess the rumors were true
Depends on how it works. I envision a controller that is basically a version of 3DS and it allows you to play at least some games without the tv. Basically how the system now works but with more mobility and a smaller controller and have the Vita works with the PS4. If that is the case then I'm fine with it. Just abandon all the motion control stuff, it is fun in small doses but just creates a headache when forced into normal games.
Also release past Nintendo controllers that are compatible with the new system and its virtual console. If they launched a system with a vast library of past Nintendo games and a huge hard drive it'd be a hit right at the gate.
EDIT: Actually I should add that I mean the 3DS with the controller attachment. I keep forgetting the 3DS didn't come this way. Basically I have a base that you attach the 3DS into that makes it look and feel more like a typical gaming controller. That's how I envision it.
Turned in some games today and decided to pick up Super Mario Maker. Haven't had but about an hour to spent with it so far but game is really fun. Even if creation isn't your cup of tea the sheer amount of player created levels you can play and download is insane. Look forward to spending some time with it and unlocking some of the more advanced creation tools.
Rumored leaked image of the Nintendo NX controller, which fits a Nintendo patent.
If this is real, I have no interest. Surely Nintendo can't continue to be THIS stupid. The gimmicky controller stuff has got to go. Why can't they just make a traditional console with a traditional controller that actually looks comfortable?
"The classic NES is back in a familiar-yet-new form as a mini replica of Nintendo's original home console. Plugging directly into a high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable.
"The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System comes packaged with an HDMI cable, a USB cable for powering the system, and one Nintendo Classic Mini: NES Controller.
"And whether it's rediscovering an old favourite or experiencing the joy of NES for the first time, the fantastic collection of NES classics included with each and every system should have something for all players."
The 30 games that will be on the system include the original Super Mario Bros trilogy, Metroid, Mega Man 2, Gradius, and Donkey Kong. A full list is included below.
Balloon Fight Bubble Bobble Castlevania Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Jr. Double Dragon II Dr. Mario Excitebike Final Fantasy Galaga Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins Gradius Ice Climber Kid Icarus Kirby’s Adventure Mario Bros. Mega Man 2 Metroid Ninja Gaiden Pac-man Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream StarTropics SUPER C Super Mario Bros. Super Mario Bros. 2 Super Mario Bros. 3 Tecmo Bowl The Legend of Zelda Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
A Wii Pro Controller can also be used with the new console, as can original NES controllers. The mini-controller can also be plugged into a Wii controller for use with NES games players might own on the Wii or Wii U's virtual console.
System is expected to sell for $60 and additional controllers will cost $10 a piece
Yeah I was looking to see if Gamestop had it available for pre-order yet. I'm hoping (though not a dealbreaker) that it has the ability to download additional games in the future. Either way that is a very solid list of games. Like you I have a lot of the ROMs but it'll be nice to be able to play with the original controller. I have an old Nintendo but I don't have a ton of games for it.
