Rumours suggest that Nintendo NX will be powered by Android


Rumours swirling around the internet suggest that Nintendo's next gaming device, the NX, may be powered by Android.



The news comes via Japanese business magazine Nikkei and in a way it may make some sense, since Nintendo has recently teamed up with DeNA to create mobile titles. Perhaps Nintendo has found some way to cross dedicated console titles with mobile? Who knows, but it's likely to be a lot better than OUYA's effort if these rumours are true.

What do you think?

If the nx is defo the new console then I hope they don't go down this route. Android is very limited and not powerful at all. It needs to be either x86 based or at least on par with current gen.

Unfortunately I think we are watching the demise of Nintendo. I think it could be as close as maybe 2 years away until they fold. It's such a shame, they need to get their act together & stop with the stupidity. Just release a SNES/N64 2.0 already!

Nobody knows what the NX is yet, making assumptions about it will probably just end up making you look stupid. And Nintendo folding? In two years? Don't make me laugh.

Pfft! Ninty gonna fold in 2 years? HAHAHAHAHAHA! They made enough off the Wii to make 3 failed platforms in a row, the Wii U is picking speed, & last but certainly not least Amiibo's are making a killing

Although I would be disappointed if this news is true about being android powered, to say nintendo are 2 years from demise tho is crazy, they aren't exactly struggling for cash at the moment are they and yeah the wii u isn't doing amazing but it has been selling enough for nintendo to make a profit especially since the amiibo came out and the 3ds makes them a lot of money too, it's annoying when people bash consoles and companies. Nintendo are hardly doing a Sega or SNK and have a lot of money in the bank, I do wish the 3rd party would go back to Nintendo tho because they could do with a few more games on the Wii u.

Good. Dunno why people bother with rumours. Just wait until things officially announced. Most rumours are just people 'guessing' or making stuff up. Like the silent hills acquisition and the countless 'psn plus prediction' forums (they are pathetic. People guessing at what the games will be - just wait and see!) Nintendo just has to match the ps4 to ride out the next 5/6 years. With optional gamepad and great fps controls using the wiimote (cod is so much better ailing with the wiimote like a mouse) it should get 3rd party support back. And if it includes backwards comp then it will be one ahead of the rest :)

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
