Last month, Eurogamer reported that the upcoming gaming console from Nintendo, the Nintendo NX will be using video game cartridges, which was surprising indeed. And today, a similar report comes from the Wall Street Journal.
As per the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is planning to go back with the cartridges for the games playable with its new console, the Nintendo NX. The report says that industry watchers believe that the cartridges are “reasonable choice” for the gamers as the company plans to target more consumers than Microsoft or Sony.
“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, they said.”
Furthermore, the report suggests that the company is planning to reveal the console sometime this year. Last month, it was also rumored that the Nintendo is planning to host an event on September 21st, where it will reveal the new console, which is apparently a portable console as per the alleged pictures.
We normally come across several speculations regarding the new console every week, whereas the Nintendo has decided not to speak regarding the matter yet. Some game developers, including Ubisoft and Bandai Namdo have announced their support for the forthcoming console. The console is confirmed for release in March 2017.
