When 2006 rolled in, the Nintendo Wii console had struck gold as it introduced an affordable way to play videogames with the use of motion-sensing technology. People were able to swing baseball bats, dance to their hearts content, and even exercise just with the use of their bodies along with the Wiimote (that’s the shortened term for the Wii Remote).
Nintendo NX Reportedly to be Revealed at Gamescom
However, the hardcore gaming community, even gamers that are located in the Nintendo fan-base, is one that is very hard to please. Even though the system garnered all the praise when it was released, the novelty of the machine quickly wore off, especially with the rise of other videogame consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Jump to about six years later and the Wii U, the successor to the Wii, came out, and it introduced a tablet-like controller that also packed motion-sensing technology. However, and once again, the novelty of that item quickly wore off. Now we’re at the year 2016, and we are now getting non-stop reports and rumors about the upcoming system by the Japanese gaming company, the NX. The latest reports state that it will finally come into view for the public to see during the upcoming Gamescom event.
Those who were eagerly anticipating the reveal of the mysterious Nintendo NX during this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo had their hopes and dreams crushed like a pile of rubble as the upcoming gaming console is still shrouded in a cloak of mystery. However, new reports state that the Japanese firm may officially introduce the NX during the Gamescom event, which will take place in Cologne, Germany this coming August 17. When you look back at everything that has been being state about the system, it is entirely possible. After all, the Gamecube was officially announced back in August of the year 2000, albeit the following two consoles, the WIi and the Wii U, were revealed during E3 events of their respective years.
Nintendo did originally plan to bring the NX console to light during this year’s E3 event, however, according to Shigeru Miyamoto, the firm decided not to do it as there was the possibility that competitors would copy their “unique” hardware approach prior to the launch of the console. It has been known that the Japanese gaming company has been quite cautious about their design ideas. Still, given the upcoming PlayStation 4.5 “Neo,” as well as Microsoft’s Project Scorpio, it would be to no surprise why the Japanese gaming company could be a bit paranoid of their decisions.
