Nintendo’s New NX System Could Have Cartridges
The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Nintendo’s new NX Console could be played on cartridges. According to the article, “Industry watchers said cartridges were a reasonable choice for Nintendo’s next-generation system, code-named NX, because the company targets a wider range of consumers than Sony or Microsoft. Nintendo’s core fans include small children, who might scratch discs but find cartridges tougher to damage. Cartridges also allow games to load faster, are harder to copy, and can be mass-produced faster than discs.”
The system is expected to be released later this year. However, more news may be released next week in time for Tokyo Game Show. No word yet on whether blowing into the cartridges will lead to better performance. To read the full WSJ article, click here.
