A well known gaming analyst believes the Nintendo NX console won’t be released in 2016. The company will only announce and reveal the new console next year.
Pachter made a prediction as to when we might see the Nintendo NX console in the United States. He said: “I would say 20% chance it comes out in 2016 in the U.S., 80% chance it comes out in 2017. If you don’t see it before E3, there’s a 0% chance it’s coming out in 2016”
He predicts Nintendo will do a similar strategy as they have done on the past. Nintendo usually reveals hardware at E3 in a particular year and the actual console itself does not ship until 18 months later.
A late 2016 release for the NX could be a possibility, but might be a slim chance. This all depends on how Nintendo wants to take advantage of the current console market. They don’t want to repeat the mistakes of the Wii U by releasing underpowered hardware too early.
The only confirmed news we know about the Nintendo NX is that the company will announce and reveal the console in 2016.
