Close

The leaks that surround the upcoming "Nintendo NX" console continue to spill.

If rumors will have accordance with the facts, the biggest thing that would set the NX apart, is that the gadget would be primarily a portable console, not similar to the "PS Vita." But, the device is portable enough to pick up and walk around a person's house.

It appears that the forthcoming NX might be the first game console, which is not packed with an AMD, but, there has been a witty conversation that the Tegra X1 of NVIDIA could bring importance to the company for this particular market segment, Hot Hardware reported.

The forthcoming Nintendo gadget is a handheld system with a screen that's bookended by two controller sections and the device can be attached and detached as required. A built-in stand allows the screen of the device to stand upright, allowing a player to use the controller in playing games.

The gadget owner can also connect the NX to a base unit or even thru a docking station, so games can be depicted on a TV screen, according to Eurogamer.

Rumor has it that the device is a living room console and a mobile device with the capability to play mobile games. Recently, reports surfaced that the upcoming handheld or console hybrid will not only let gamers play cartridges, but also with smartphone games, based on the report of The Wall Street Journal.

This could mean that games such as "Pokemon Go" could run with the "Nintendo NX." But, the NX would be in need of a camera and a Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies built-in, Value Walk reported.
