View Full Version : Nintendo NX Size, Controller Details and Ports Reportedly Revealed

08-31-2016, 11:45 AM


A new report from Let's Play Video Games has emerged, detailing the alleged size and layout of the NX, and suggesting the device will be region free.

According to the outlet's source, the current development kit is "slightly thicker than the Nintendo 3DS XL when folded, so 25 mm, with a width of around 281 mm and a height of 92 mm with the controllers attached." When separated, each controller is the same size, both with a "width of 38 mm, making the console itself have a width of 205 mm."

Along the top of the device is a TV connector port and an SD card slot, according to the outlet's source. Meanwhile, the bottom of the unit features a power button, headphone jack and cartridge slot.

Additionally, details on how the detachable controllers connect were revealed. There's apparently a button located on the back of each controller that, when pressed, ejects the controller from the device.


Finally, the outlet said it has heard from two different sources that the current development kits are region free, and that developers have not received any information about the final device being region locked.

NX will have motion-sensing detachable controllers with advanced vibration, a new report has surfaced, claiming the NX controller will also have a share button and split D-pad.

Anonymous sources have told Let's Play Video Games that NX's share button (bearing a small icon of a camera) will function similarly to the one found on PlayStation 4's DualShock 4, and will "apparently allow the upload of still images and video directly to Miiverse, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube."

The report also claims images and video can be saved onto an external memory device and then transferred to your PC.

Additionally, the controller is said to have a split D-pad, though the reason behind Nintendo's apparent decision to move away from the solid D-pad featured on all of its previous controllers was not explained.

So is anyone feeling the hype for the NX? I think it runs the risk of being over shadowed by the new PS4.

I stopped caring about consoles reveal, it's the games that matter, not all this dick sword fighting with the numbers and features you will never use.

I mean, I care about what features and hardware is in these things. But historically, Nintendo doesn't. And historically, Nintendo has always been obsessed with their gimmicks. And historically, they always say "we've learned our lessons" and then display the opposite.

So yeah, I just struggle to give a shit about the NX past morbid curiosity.

I must admit. I'm a bit hyped for the NX. Much more so than I am VR.

I'm sure I'll get one because all Nintendo consoles have at least some decent games on them. That said I wouldn't say I'm hyped.

At this point, I just want them to reveal the damn thing. All these rumors are killing the hype for me.
