Nintendo's financials haven't looked too good in recent years as the company has been unable to repeat the success of the Wii console. The Japanese gaming firm is currently working on the NX, and while the firm promises Wii-like innovation, it seems this next-gen console will once again put little emphasis on graphical power.
Liam Robertson of Unseen64 claims his sources told him that the NX is defnitely not aiming to compete with the likes of the PS4 or Xbox One on a power level:
The NX is definitely not aiming to compete with the likes of PS4 on a power level. Absolutely sure of that now.
It's still early days and Nintendo has yet to announce the new killer features of the NX but it will be interesting to see if the company can turn the tide as it did with the Wii.
As with any rumour, it’s important to question the validity of each source. Liam Robertson’s pedigree shows he is credible and accurately leaked information in the past. For example, he divulged that Criterion Games almost created a new F-Zero if it wasn’t for their commitments to Need For Speed: Most Wanted. Additionally, his evidence proved correct in regards to the appalling working environment at Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Even though this doesn’t prove anything, it does suggest his statements should be taken seriously and are more than a baseless rumour.
