Anybody have any idea what it is?

List of notable things I found from sources go here:
-It will be released March 2017.
-It’s not merely the successor to the handheld 3DS or stationary console Wii U.
-This will be hardware that’s been made with a new way of thinking. (Basically a redundant line?)
-It will not be shown in this E3's conference.
-There will be a Zelda game released for the Wii U and NX... (I'm guessing the game might be shown at E3.)

Basically PR lines that tell us absolutely nothing. It's going to succeed the 3DS/Wii U regardless of whether it is "merely" a successor, and it can be said to be made with a "new way of thinking" as long as it's not a copy of an earlier system.

I think it's safe to assume that:
-You can play games on it (considering a title has been announced for it...)
-It's either stationary or portable (if it's not one, it's the other)

Well, for the prior line....(Probably in combination with the next??) ,,,  I thought maybe it wouldn't have a "DS" or "Wii" name attached....? (NDS/3DS/2DS/New 3DS / Wii/Wii U) It could still go by another name and be known to come after those, probably. If portable, DS means Dual Screen (I think), so maybe it isn't 2-screened? (More, or less?) -  Seeing as the Zelda game is coming for the Wii U as well... it might be a little silly if the system is too much like the Wii U, so... hmm... No idea what to think on that, though.

\I could probably come up with some theoretical stuff to think about, but until we know, we can assume they're not it. For example:
-If it turned out to be like the HoloLens or  VR, then hmm...
-If the new way of thinking was not to include buttons, but sensors... that would also be interesting, but that's probably unlikely? (Might still want a power button or switch.) ... Depending on if games could cause limited physical change to a device, then they could probably set up the controls themselves. (Probably would be pretty expensive for the customers, though....? so I'm not betting on that.)

With what they were trying on the Wii U, I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being a complete hybrid between the two using smaller discs like what the Gamecube used. Basically a slightly smaller dual-screen gamepad with good wi-fi capabilities that isn't anchored to a main tower, complete with some form of 3D to allow for backwards compatibility and the ability to fold to protect its screens.

I mean, I doubt they will from a marketing standpoint, but I wouldn't be surprised. Such an idea would only be viable if they were also set on maintaining or improving the graphic capabilities of the Wii U.

I kind of doubt it too...

What does NX mean, anyway? New Xbox? .... Nintendo, Nintendo Ten? (NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii/WiiU, GBA, NDS, 3DS/New3DS/2DS, ...  -- Not including Microsoft/Sony systems.)

- Any idea if it will be an Always-Online type of platform that the Xbox One wanted to be? And selling the games online only....  (Well, not sending the game itself, as a method to avoid the encryption issues...) I can see it done in a way where only graphics data and music data is forwarded to your system... (and cached). Surely that would be a "new way of thinking" as far as internals go. However, do to connection speeds, and with the risk of them getting DDOS'd, this might be quite unlikely...

I suppose the best answer we can get is by looking it up than using our brains?? So... Hmm...

WELL, I wasn't entirely wrong lol. It's a hybrid handheld/console and it seems to at least match the Wii U in terms of processing power based on what little I could tell from the fancy trailer. It's still different from what I thought it would be though (not dual-screen in handheld mode, not disc-based, etc.).

Thoughts? I'm pretty stoked about it, yet it almost feels like this was supposed to be the original post-Wii system and they just did the Wii U & 3DS thing to bide time until this was finished. Maybe not but in a way.

Interesting how typing "n" will show this first in results (attachment), but if you type it out, you start seeing "price" appear...

So I look up the price... and...

How much do you think it'll cost? I'm going to take a guess and say maybe $250.

Guessing 250-300.

I'm more worried about battery life, storage space, and durability of stuff like the kickstand.

Yeah, especially durability. Those sliding things don't look solid.

Those are my concerns too. I won't bother guessing price because of conversion rates and tax differences, but I think it's durability and battery life will be the biggest hurdles to jump if this is to be a reliable portable device; storage isn't as much of a concern if they at least have SD card support.

Fox: Alright. Sounds good.  I agree it does seem a bit silly.  Sounds more of an April Fools type of thing. (Maybe having an ability for people to change their names limitless times specifically on April Fools is an idea.)
Yesterday at 04:09:25 AM
Kain: Sala asked me about the name, I thought it was silly but agreed he could have it only for a week.  Tomorrow his name goes back to Salanewt.

Fox: And yay! Atrius is back! Thanks for the reply. Somehow I didn't notice the recuriveness before.
Yesterday at 03:25:29 AM
Fox: @ridiculous name for a week =  Hm? So, how many characters would you say should be the maximum to have a name "permanently"... or better yet... How many characters can a name have on registration?

Fox: @Space manager thought for gsmagic = What a conundrum... Whelp... I'll just do whatever.... Probably would waste more time thinking about preventing bugs than coding anyway. :P

javi3: Atrius, por que no sigues con el editor de golden sun?
June 20, 2017, 10:52:48 AM
Fox: It feels like the safest bet is to do Atrius's repointering system, and have something that organizes the tables done a bit separate... er... Well, it's something to think about.
June 20, 2017, 08:53:41 AM
Fox: HOWEVER... I can see other problems that might cause..... (Even with just the pointer in the MFT)  Meh. It's like you actually need a program to apply patches to do it appropriately.
June 20, 2017, 08:46:38 AM
Fox: ... So... What am I thinking? You ask? That the patches the point data after MFT, should have had pointers in the MFT themselves.... In that case, I can see a possibility of everything working smoothly even if space is needed to the very end of the ROM.
June 20, 2017, 08:37:22 AM
Fox: It's basically that everthink from the point of  editing, to the closest free space to the last entry's address would get repointed forward/backwards depending on space needed... and if space is mapped after patches are added, then that could mean the patches are also repointed. (:o)
June 20, 2017, 08:29:03 AM
Fox: Well, I mean if I map the space out the same way Atrius did it.
June 20, 2017, 08:26:41 AM
Fox: I have a hunch... when I add Map Palette editing the way I'm thinking about... it will cause all patches that repoint to after the MFT to break.... Especially if Atrius's editor wasn't used beforehand. Etc.
June 20, 2017, 07:27:17 AM
Fox: Hmmm... Let's see... regardless of method, I think I still do want to take some of Atrius's Space Manager code... Hmm.....
June 20, 2017, 07:07:27 AM
Fox: say*
June 20, 2017, 07:07:19 AM
Fox: I'd go so far as to see.. even if you are trying to be accurate, there could still be inaccuracies... However, that one was just an example where it was clearly intentional.
