The rumor mill continues to churn hard for Nintendo’s upcoming console, the NX. In fact, most rumors from credible online sources, like Facebook and scribbles on Miiverse, indicate that there are more rumors to come.
In Brooklyn, N.Y, 26-year old Michelle Langely has been monitoring Reddit, Twitter and her Facebook feed around the clock. “I have 43 rubber bands on both my arms.” said Langely. “Each one of them indicates when a new rumor was discovered. When new rumor hits the web, I snap each one. It’s just to remind me to stay diligent in my Nintendo NX hunt.” said Langely.
The NX is the next home console coming to market from Nintendo. The term “home” has been used lightly as its’ been rumored that the console will be somewhat of a hybrid. Half-mobile, half-home console, half-retro emulator. And the other half? That’s only the half of it.
If you take to the web, there is an abundance of information available to get an idea of what you can expect the NX to be. There are many well-articulated readings that theorize what type of processor the company is managing to fit into the home/handheld/mobile/cloud-based computing console. Below, you will see some of the most concrete imagery that we’ve found depicting a dev kit seen in the wild.
If that isn’t evidence enough, Reddit has become a major resource in clues as to what the NX could be. If you head to the /r/NintendoNX subreddit, you will find post, after post, after post, after post from different users touching on the same exact topic from week to week. While this may seem like beating a dead horse when it comes to theories, we’ve also heard rumors that the NX will have the ability to decrypt future rumors, mirroring the technology of sci-fi thriller “Minority Report” starring Tom Cruise.
At this point though, it’s only a rumor.
