Rumor: Foxconn NX mock up (Update)

Update: might not be genuine. Sorry for any confusion

An apparent Foxconn mock up of what the NX looks like. Foxconn manufacturers a lot of gaming machines and products like the iPhone. They had previously leaked the PS4 pro design. Matches up with Eurogamer’s report…but what’s with the boxes? 

Let me know what you think on twitter or down below 


Translated post:

I can translate the original post here (brackets are my comments.)

“NX is a console-handheld hybrid. It is detachable. It contains the console itself, performance module, and the handheld/gamepad.

The console (I think it is supposed to be a dock. I’ll call it a dock from now on) contains HDD, cartridge slot and various other interfaces. It supports TV output (but no CPU/GPU).

The performance module is a portable device that provides power supply. It contains a Li-Ion battery. CPU/GPU also is contained inside. It supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and wired connections. You plug the dock inside and it becomes a PS4/Xbone like console, but you can also transfer the signals to the handheld (like Remote Play?) 

There are two candidate SoC for it: Pascal SoC from nVidia or AMD R9 SoC.

The handheld part is a 6 inch 720p screen and has a low-TDP SoC, which can satisfy basic operations with lower quality graphics when the performance module is not connected. But it can also display game graphics from the performance module which can provide a console-level graphics. A bit like nVidia Shield streaming. You can bring the performance module with you portable (since it has its own battery).

Additional info: whatever the solution will be, the computing power it has falls far behind a PS4, let alone a PS4 Pro. Don’t have high hopes for that. The selling point for it is high portability and hybrid providing rich gameplay possibilities.
If details don’t get revealed in Oct then maybe wait for the beginning of next year. I welcome you guys to necrobump this post. Period.”

Ubisoft on NX: A New Approach; Fantastic Machine; Really Nintendo 

In an interview with GameSpot Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot had a couple choice quotes regarding Nintendo’s upcoming NX:

 The new Nintendo [console] is a fantastic machine. It’s really a new approach, it’s really Nintendo, [which is] coming with something new again. We love it.

Check out the rest of the article for Ubisoft’s view on disruptions in the hardware cycle among other topics 

According to IGN Ubisoft had this to say:

“I think, once again, the interface is very attractive. It’s a machine that will be easy to use for all gamers. They have built in something that will give us chance to really have a different experience from what exists today. That’s what I like – that they come with something new that is adapted to what we actually want now.”

They also feel like Nintendo learned from their mistake

Emily Rogers: NX entering production, finalized hardware, and no chance of a delay

In a post where Emily Rogers rounds up what she’s heard she disclosed new information.

She states that the hardware is finalized as it’s interning an early stage of production. She also states that she’s completely certain that there will not be a need for a delay (something people have been wondering with the late announcement). Make sure to read the whole thing if you’re interested as people have told her she’s very close to what NX actually is.
