Nintendo's NX console might be portable, too. EuroGamer.net is reporting details about Nintendo's next major game console, the Nintendo NX. The site says the NX will actually be a portable, handheld console with its own display. The handheld portion would dock into another device to connect it to your television. The reports says the NX will two detachable controller sections. Those controller parts will be on the left and right side of the screen. The NX will be powered by Nividia Tegra processor, which in layman's terms is pretty damn powerful. The report says Nintendo will not opt to use Google's Android operating system, as rumors have said. Instead, Nintendo would create its own operating systems to run the thing. Eurogamer says the NX will have a simple marketing message, you can take your games on the go. This would remedy a big problem Nintendo had with its last console, the Wii U. Some people did not understand that the Wii U was a different console from the original Wii. Also the NX would use game cartridges and not disks. If you're expecting backwards compatibility as in running your Wii U games on the NX The report has some bad news for you. There are no plans for backwards compatibility. Cue the sad tombone.>> [SOUND] Is any of this true? I can't vouch for the track record of Eurogamer.net however this old man remembers Nintendo creating something similar in the past. Anybody else remember the Micro vs. System? It was a clam shell portable gaming device with two wired controllers and it was pretty awesome Anyway, Nintendo officially said that the NX is coming in March 2017. We should know everything by then. I'm Aiz Akhtar, and you can keep up with the hottest tech news at cnet.com/update.
