The Nintendo NX, Nintendo‘s so-called upcoming console that is said to be revealed next year and bring about Nintendo’s next generation of gaming.
So far we know very little of the console, which is mysterious as normally we would know a bit more by now. But is seems that Nintendo is trying to keep things as on the down-low as possible. However, we do live in the Age of the Internet. A patent filed over the weekend, which was of course leaked over on Neogaf and shows that Nintendo’s next gaming console might not come with a disc slot at all.
This could mean nothing right now as most patents are edited multiple times before being finalised, but if Nintendo is going down the road of disc-free gaming, then we might have an issue on our hands in South Africa as we are still a physical based market. Maybe Nintendo are planning to release more than one model? We will just have to wait and see.
