    Good luck if your provider is Comcast with a download limit. With the state of ISPs today, it would not work very well.

    Yes, Nintendo will probably have a great year, but the NX won´t be more powerful than PS4/X1.
    That combined with the suggested mobile unit would cost them too much and decrease their profit. The consumer price would be too high which would hurt sales in the end.

    It is really depressing for me because i have seen several games i could like but are on consoles and i have no intention of buying another console for the rest of my life.

    PC gaming needs to step it up in the rpg side of things.The only thing we have got out of PC rpg's is rehashed brand names...FFantasy, Warcraft,Star Wars,Elder Scrolls, everything is based on marketing a popular brand name and not on quality of game design.
    However now that i think about we are advancing so slowly that even these console games are doing the same thing....another FFantasy product,Mario products,even Elder Scrolls went to console as well.

    The Witcher yes it is a solid game and is comforting to know it sells on merit and on not on a brand name from 10+ years ago.I recently found another gem in Dishonored so it is nice to see a few gem come out based on solid game designs.

    Last poster mentioned "powerful"well you know these consoles have been claiming more power for years every step of the way but you hardly notice a difference until like 3 consoles later.SO just because they claim to have the power to drive great games i expect we will still notice the difference behind a PC and a Console game.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I am excited for Nintendo's NX. I think it will be just as powerful as the Xbox and just behind the PS4 but the horsepower was never what mattered to them. Nor should it. With new leadership Nintendo has a chance to really make waves. The Wii sold like mad and is still one of the most popular consoles of all time. The WiiU missed the mark (though there is some great content on the machine) so it is the normal time for the big N to right it's ship and create a console again that matters in the market place. Besides their handhelds of course which sell great. Remember, Target said the WiiU was their best seller Black Friday. I think the NX will do just fine. I am an agnostic gamer. I buy all the consoles and have a current gaming PC. I do not mind spending on my hobby. I love Nintendo games

    We just got a PS4 and have a WiiU we bought earlier in the year. It's been a great console. It's much improved over the Wii and has a ton of cool games and not just RPGs. I am playing an old jrpg (Breath of Fire II), but having fun with Mario Maker, Splatoon (arena shooter), Mario Kart 8, and some others. I plan on picking up Xenoblade soon.

    I think Nintendo has done a great job at making their older titles available on the WiiU. It could be better, but it's not bad. I would love to see Luigi's Mansion, but I guess Gamecube games aren't as easily ported and I don't think they have an EMU for it like the SNES.
