    I'm not sure this whole piracy thing is all that relevant.  Going custom doesn't save you (plenty of history for that), and, on the other hand, rolling your own custom version of Android doesn't necessarily make you open to piracy.  DRM systems are going to be a part of it regardless, and it's those systems that will really determine how hack proof the system is.  Or being realistic, just make the hacks something that are a pain in the ass to discover and to reproduce on systems, along with some console banning for online.

    There are other ways to make it easyer for 3rd party devs to make games rather then use android. I just odnt see Nintendo using a OS they them self's don't have complete control over

    I think they are just using GNU. Mac OSX, Linux and Android use GNU to run all the operations in the background That's why they have Bash Terminals.

    I got a crazy prediction here. Hear me out. Nintendos next console will be,a handheld!

    Think something along the lines of the Nvidia shield portable,it will be a handheld first and foremost (which is where the bulk of their hardware sales usually are) but you can also bring it home and plug it into your TV via HDMI and it will output to the TV at 1080p (possibly 720P). And given their design decisions over the past few years it would seem they dont mind going the big and bulky route,but i would like to think it would be smaller and more compact than the Shield. And developers could be developing for portable handheld titles and at home couch experiences simultaneously.

    I dont care what it runs, I bought the Wii and it sucks, bought the Wii-U and it was even a bigger let down.  Then they treat their customers like garbage, I wont be buying anything else from them ever, they can go out of business for all I care.

    Tegra X1 will be faster than Nintendo Next gen console.

    Yes, Nintendo is very propriatery and closed when it comes to its systems, but for once it could be more open-minded. They could use a dual-OS : one Nintendo OS exclusive to the system and one compatible with all the rest of android-based games out there.Best of both worlds.A system like that with all Nintendo's franchises would rock hard.

    Rich seems to have forgotten that generally speaking, Nintendo "neither confirms nor denies" rumors. The fact that they strayed from their usual policy to deny this rumor means that beyond a doubt they are telling the truth. Obviously they don't want people having a false impression that the NX will be running on a shitty OS (for a console).

    Nintendo needs only 5 tipes of games, 1 platformers, 2 fighting-beat em ups, 3 sports, 4 cars, 5 rpgs, and thats about it, if they want they could add some 1st person shooters and weird japanese stuff and there you go snes 2

    i think nintendo is slowly getting the picture and you can see that with the amiibo thing, they are for kids and that´s about it, they should make a gamer console like they did with the snes, the new snes must their goal, and what was the snes, well a console with good graphics cheap, easy tu use for everybody and with a ton of games to play, so whats the mistake of the wii-u the controller and the desing, so if they had relleased a gamecube 2 with a good controller and a ton of games strongly market to age 5 to 15 well they would still had been the old nintendo, rely only in the wii concept is like trying to center your console market on the gameboy or the virtuaboy, cause that´s what the wii was, a gadget

    I have two things to say 1 Thank god Nintendo isn't gonna use such a shitty idea 2 how could you expect them to use Android? This is Nintendo they don't do stuff like this, they stuck with cartridges to this day in handhelds and only dropped cartridges with their home consoles after the n64 they don't follow trends they make trends

    Nikkei actually have a long list of being wrong, especially when it comes to Nintendo, remember when they said Wii U games would get demos on other systems and mobile?


    (May 6, 2018 - 10:41 pm)

    I hope they stick by their words.  They don't need a shit mobile OS for a console.

    Nintendo lost its chance to make next gem system. Instead they gave us the travesty known as the Wii u.

    You know in one of the early vids I was like, 'What if he did some more Saints Row IV' footage and lo and behold.

    Seriously this is like the third time I've had moments like this…

    Love how Rich creates conspiracy theories when a company comes out and says it's not happening.

    Why did you pick this part of SR4 for your video? It looks boring and not funny when out of context.


    (May 6, 2018 - 10:41 pm)

    Great work on that critical thinking after seeing the news.
    Because 2 videos are better than none. Idiot.
