I'm thinking Nintendo might be pumping out patents to through us off because they know someone will look for them. it is possible that some of them are real patents for the NX but most are probably a joke.
This design cannot handle analog sticks well, because it only detects on one dimension. Thus as we see in the patent, the analog sticks are not on the detachable parts, which is different than the Eurogamer report. But still this design can be modified to detect on two dimensions by adding a 45° mirror, but I don't know how reliable it will be.
People use your brains: This is only 50% of the NX. They will (Imo) also release a home console at the same time, And they just integrate really well with some shared titles, But that Botw will be on the home console part.
It's an interesting idea from what I can gather! The infrared light goes inside the controller section and it can accurately read changes in the button presses, essentially making the buttons pressure sensitive without any complicated mechanical parts.
I think this is just a patent for the infrared technology. I fully expect it to not be used just yet, and if it is, it'll work just fine.
The Eurogamer rumors might as well be based on these patents and it's nothing more than that: random patents.
I hope and pray this thing isn't the core console. It just screams "I'M A GIMMICK!" Nintendo NEEDS a high powered console to compete with Sony and Microsoft and this "handheld-home console combo" doesn't sound like it will be. This will just further alienate developers and gamers alike...
Seriously, if Nintendo is purposely hiding as to what the NX would be until they announce it themselves in September, why the hell would they allow such leakage to be exploited by EuroGamer who does nothing but set off the rumors? If this was actually true, wouldn't Nintendo step in and put a stop to these rumors? If someone is being paid to leak this information of the NX that works for Nintendo, dude fired!!!! Nough said... I personally will die laughing when Nintendo announces the NX and it's TOTALLY different from what EuroGamer says and he would look like a complete idiot.
This goes back into Harold Camping by saying that the end of the world is going to happen on this date, and people believed it. We're still here... Same by going for the humors of the NX... Think about it people.
Kimishima said NX will not be another WIIU but the hybrid concept is really similar to WIIU. I guess Kimishima's word is more reliable than EuroGamer, right?
By the way. Tons of copyright exist but never become real product. Think about how many copyrighted design have been discovered, this is just the one that fit EuroGamer's rumor.
And remember, NX is developed in Japan, manufactured in China. I highly doubt where do those rumors come from.
Here's the thing with patents, no one ever actually has to use them. This could be for the NX, or it could be some sort of attachment that goes with the NX, or it could be the successor to the 3DS, or it could be just an idea they wanted to get on lock down for later. It is really just best to wait until Nintendo makes their reveal.
I think the handheld/home console sounds cool, more interesting than the Wii U. So long as I can plug it into my TV and use a traditional controller I'll be happy and the added bonus of being able to take it and play anywhere is cool also
As for the infrared control, the Circle Pad Pro accessory for the 3DS uses the same connection method. I've never used the CPP myself, but if it worked for the 3DS, I'm sure Nintendo has improved upon their infrared connection design since then. And I wouldn't worry about it breaking too easily either, I'm sure the NX will be built from the indestructible element known as Nintendium!
You've got to be an idiot to think that the attachable controllers would even remotely resemble what's on that patent. Nintendo is known for making very comfortable controllers and while I believe it will have detachable controllers they will be very ergonomic.
Is everyone forgeting the patent with the freeform screen with the touch screen buttons and click wheels?
Everyone took that as the nx which could still be true if you didn't realize as patents mean nothing. Don't let history repeat with this patent
Whatever Nintendo want to do. I don't mind. But it has to be successful. I can't stress enough how IMPERITIVE it is for the NX to have third party support. If it doesn't, history will repeat itself and we'll have ourselves a 'Wii U 2.' So please, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, NINTENDO. DO NOT FUCK IT UP! If you fail with this, Nintendo. Then it's time to stop making consoles and continue making ONLY handhelds instead.
+Duster the Master Thief My bro has been listening to them for years now. He was telling me how hyped he is for their new album, which sparked my curiosity (interesting enough, I listen to a lot of similar genres, but never did Green Day).
Don't you find it weird how the controllers just come off the tablet? Why not just have it connected to the tablet permanently.
If nintendo DOES go into the path of VR for the NX, then maybe the controllers would have the same concept as the vive controllers, which would make sense, since it would feel more natural to be able to have a disconnected controller for hand movement rather than a regular controller.
I say we wait until Nintendo shows the NX. Than we can complain for a good couple of months until people buy it and say how good it will be versus people who do not like gimmicks or console fanboys who jump on the sony or microsoft bandwagons.
Nintendo is on of the oldest companies in the world. They aren't stupid. They know how to evolve with the times. I don't think that these new patents would really be the NX since it is supposed to launch in March. They need to be putting the finishing touches and starting to mass produce the consoles so they have enough for the March launch. I firmly believe that there is going to be 2 NX consoles. One being a handheld and another being a home console. I feel like they will have the same OS and can be used in tandem with each other but not as a fusion console.
nintendo patented a cellphone game boy... the thing we all know and love...wait, it never got out...
companies come with the idea, they patent those ideas for "save" them from competitors. a non electronic modular system could work, so they patented it for not have Sony patent something similar...
Nintendo is also doing R&D for controllers for mobile phones(and maybe release their own mobile tablet?) because they know that until tablet and similar hardware will have a decent controllers input they will finally become viable as mass gaming platforms. right now cellphones are good only for time killers and badly controlled more complex games.
Well I am surprised in a positive way, because I wasnt on this NX hypetrain and thought it would be the best way ever. Me as a Nintendo fan, a pessimistic one at that will buy this thing either way. And it somehow lived up my low expectations, but really people did you really think that the NX power will be better than the PS4 in wich age are we living 1996? Nintendo DOESNT need competition they are good with what they have even if a console in sales is bad they can create masterpeaces for example the GameCube had poor sales and had really good games ( Double Dash, metroid Prime) and the WiiU is sadly a failure, but has some masterpieced ( Mario 3d world, Splatoon, kart 8, two Zelda remakes, TLoZ BotW).
This doesn't support the Eurogamer "leak". This CONTRADICTS it. Eurogamer stated that the controllers were detachable so that they could be used separate from the system, e.g. when it's docked on your TV or if you just put the handheld on a table. In contrast, the technology described here would clearly not work when the controllers weren't connected to the handheld. This looks a lot more like *a detachable controller for your smartphone* than a dedicated gaming handheld. Now I think Eurogamer heard about this patent a while ago, before everyone else, and incorporated the detachable controller concept into their "leak" without actually looking at the details. Maybe they expected the patent would be found and used to "confirm" their info. But this does not make Eurogamer look more credible.
Well I have to say this is still a rumor is because Nintendo may show off what the NX could do in the future which is soon I hope anyway I have to say for the blueprints it would interesting to see what we can do with them but it's still a rumor until Nintendo says stuff.
God, this is getting on my last nerves. I wish people would figure out that not all patents that come out from companies like Nintendo don't see the light of day but the use of it being there just in case they need to or run into issues along the way. I also hope this is just the use of a handheld not the console.
um.....where is the dpad?
Nintendo I have galaxy note. I don't need another fucking phone. if this is the next step for the 3ds then I'm okay with this. because I buy a lot of jrpgs on my 3ds and I don't see a problem but for your home console......this better be apart of the nx and not the entire thing
Patents mean nothing. Yes, any number of these patents could be part of the NX, but companies file patents all the time for technology or ideas they may have or are developing even if they may never use it or it doesn't come out for 10 years. They just like to get them in early so no one else can come up with the idea.
it wont look like that, but that tech is actually really cool, its extremely low on power consumption because its a sensor, since theyre removable you could have a dedicated "controller dock" with its own power source that turns these into a classic controller if you wanted to set the screen up on a table or dock it to the home console, the tech surrounding the nx and nintendos admissions of a family of systems being the nx makes all these at least partially true when you consider what part of the family each device lends its strengths to
This is what I believe is the case. March is usually when they release handheld devices. They could be releasing the handheld portion in March and then the console portion in the fall. They'd have to be careful to market it well but it could work pretty well.
I honestly don't think this is a bad idea. This design could save battery power, give freedom for future control configurations, and allow third party devs to develop countroller options that are more comfortable. Of course this is just a patent, so we'll have to wait and see how this idea may or may not be integrated into the NX's design.
Aside from the fact that it simply wouldn't work with a stick, and would be incredibly taxing on the CPU itself which would have to constantly process video data.
It's a pretty terrible idea.
They would be better off doing something like the Circle Pad Pro which has it's own battery, and communicates with the 3DS via simple IR technology, or simply having some kind of electrical connection between the device, kind of like a USB port, so that it is powered by the device itself.
Why do people hate the Mobile/Console Hybrid idea? I think it's the best step for Nintendo to take, their Mobile market is great, and their Home Console market is failing. So why not breach into both at the same time, with the NX?, Every time someone buys an NX, Nintendo will gain market share, in both markets. and it likely that the NX is nearing completion because September is drawing ever closer, and Tokyo Game show, with a really good chance for 3rd party Devs to show off their games for the NX with it., So honestly i think Nintendo is deciding on how to make the controller attach to the main unit, with small variations between versions, (Analog,Digital, this inferred sensor type). Or If they are detachable, they are filing pattents for different controller types that can go on to the NX depending on the play style/situation. (Competitive/Casual/.ect)
+Raru [ラル] I agree on that. Nintendo doesnt need competition. I mean if I want a powerful box with a simple controller have a PS, XBone. The problem with those are they are too similar and repetative. Since the DS Nintendo has always been gimicky. I really enjoyed the DS's double screen function, the Wii's remote control, the 3DS's 3D effect and other good features on it and the WiiU's tablet function. It was always a fun and different experience from others. And the ones who say PC masterrace are quite dumb, because of course the PC is better than any console, because their technology doubles every 18 Months.
+Aros Bastion (Bastion of Death) Nintendo's been making gimmicks for quite a while now, and they happen to be fun. I'm sorry you don't share that perspective, but at least they've realized how stupid it is to compete with PC, unlike the two identical-but-not consoles to be released in the future, the Scorpio and Neo.
And +David Thompson I believe that if this patented design was put to use, it would allow for an amazing amount of NX customization. The console itself could easily support a slew of control schemes from the typical A, B, X, Y to a, "Jump, Slash, Strafe, L, R" set.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
