Since the announcement of the Nintendo NX, a lot of people are speculating as to what the Nintendo NX really is.
According to a recent report by Eurogamer, they have acquired information from various trusted sources that the Nintendo NX is a portable hybrid game console.
It is a “hybrid” game console because, according to them, the Nintendo NX can be plugged into the TV so that you can have a bigger screen or you can play on the go.
But, probably the one thing that people got really excited about is the rumor about the inclusion of two detachable controllers in the game console.
The rumor states that the Nintendo NX will have two detachable controllers from each side of the game console. You can use the Nintendo NX’s screen to play the game but you can also use your TV as well.
Now, until Nintendo decides to reveal the Nintendo NX to the public, this information is still considered a rumor; well, at least, for now.
But, there is information that that feature might be true. Just recently, new information about the Nintendo NX has surfaced.
Apparently, Nintendo has filed a Patent describing an accessory that is attached externally and is fed to an “information processing device”.
There was also an illustration that showcased four buttons attached to the side of the device.
This attached accessory might have more than 4 buttons as it may include other things such as a dial, for example.
Now, why do companies, like Nintendo, file patents? Well, that is to safeguard their product from unauthorized copying and manufacturing.
It is important to note, however, that not all patented products make it to the market, so it still remains to be seen if the Nintendo NX will really have this.
But, because of this information, the recent rumor of the Nintendo NX stating that it might have detachable controllers might be true; if the recent patent information is to be believed.
Another thing that is interesting is that the Nintendo NX might have infrared cameras that can utilize both the detachable controllers.
As previously stated, the detachable controllers might have other functions as opposed to the four buttons already laid out in front.
The “information processing device” will also be able to utilize the inputs of the said accessory, making us believe that it is indeed one of those detachable controllers.
The infrared camera might also be an interesting addition to the Nintendo NX. The camera can be utilized as a motion-detecting camera that can allow players to input some commands in particular games and applications.
Some rumors even state that the Infrared camera can pick up hand gestures as they can be read as inputs by the game console.
If all of these are true, the Nintendo NX will be something really special and one that gamers will really have fun using.
The Nintendo NX hasn’t been officially unveiled yet, so take this information with a grain of salt.
The Nintendo is reported to be released in March of 2017.
