The packaging for the Nintendo NX will be slightly larger than the Wii U’s packaging.
Furthermore, the packaging is relatively clean and simple and is similar to the Wii U in terms of package design.
The color scheme for the packaging is white and blue (compared to the Wii U’s blue and black).
The packaging still says “NX” however there is still no indication if this is a placeholder or the final name.
The areas of the packaging that would usually depict the hardware were blurred and redacted by Nintendo in attempt to keep it hidden.
Features and Specs
Games will be on cartridges – Edit: This secondary source (who had not yet completed verification) has been busted.
4k streaming has been mentioned. – What this likely means is playback of content such as Netflix, etc. Not gameplay.
1080p and 60fps are being used by the marketing teams in relation to gameplay on to the console portion. I’ve heard unconfirmed rumblings of 900p for the infamous hybrid part of the device.”
You can read the rest of it on Reddit. The 4K streaming part really got our attention. If true, this can definitely be a game changer for Nintendo since they would be left behind if they didn’t get on the 4K train like every other company.
