Report: Portable Nintendo NX to Launch This Year, Console Counterpart in 2017

Reportedly, portable Nintendo NX could launch this year with a console landing in 2017.

Recently, we came across speculations mentioning compatibility between upcoming Nintendo NX and PS4. The said speculations came from a report by Macquarie Capital Securities in Japan which has now been unearthed.

In case you were rooting for the speculation to be true, you are in for a disappointment as the report states:

It’s possible the NX works with PS4 or PC’s which would be a major change for Nintendo and be a positive.

In addition to this, the report states that an NX product was pushed forward to November 2016 from November 2017. This product is believed to be a portable device from Nintendo which will be followed by a home console in the coming year.

Moreover, it is also believed that the handheld version will cost less than $250. Last but not the least, it is believed that Nintendo NX will definitely work with smartphones unlike PCs and Playstation 4 which seems reasonable considering Nintendo Accounts and MyNintendo. You can view the entire report in the image attached below and share your impressions with us in the comments section below!

Like with any other speculation, do not believe everything you read on the Internet until Nintendo officially confirms it.
