UK retailers state that the Nintendo NX must cost under £200 to be successful

 

In a recent survey of UK retailers,  MCV UK has discovered that all retailer agree that the Nintendo NX must cost under £200 to be successful. 

This comes after recent rumours that the Nintendo NX will be using a Nvidia made Tegra SoC and be a portable handheld/console hybrid, where a base unit/docking station can be used to connect the device to a television for console style play. This means that the upcoming console will be a lot less powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One, making a lower price a must. 

One retail boss said that the industry misses Nintendo and wants a new product for a portable gaming that is not a mobile phone or tablet, with another stating that a price point between £150 and £200 in order to guarantee stronger sales than both the 3DS and the Wii U when they launched. 

 

The games industry sorely misses a strong Nintendo,

if the NX reports are true, I’m optimistic. But only if the machine is significantly cheaper than PS4 and Xbox One

 

The Nintendo NX will reportedly use a Nvidia Tegra SoC

 

Up until know it was assumed that AMD would be creating the SoCs for Nintendo's next generation console, but it seems that Nintendo is not interested in providing hardware that directly competes with Sony's PS4 or Microsoft's Xbox One. 

Rumour also has it that the Nintendo NX will be a cartridge based console, cartridges that are 32GB in size if Eurogamer is to be believed. This should be large enough for a lot of modern games but still smaller than a standard Blu-Ray disc. 

Right now Nintendo has officially announced the Nintendo NX, but not confirmed anything other than its mere existence. The new console is set to launch in March 2017.
