[RUMOR] NX Pilot Production to Begin in October for 2016 Release

Post by Zero Revolution on Thu Jul 02, 2015 11:29 am

According to this rumor, NX will begin pilot production in October of this year, to have most units finished for launch by June 2016, for a planned 2016 launch. They also plan to sell 20 million units in it's first year, 10 times the amount of Wii U units sold this year, hence the production starting now.

According to an article from DigiTimes, Nintendo is set to launch their next console, currently codenamed Nintendo NX, in July of next year. The article states that the console will be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics, while Pegatron Technology is trying to "snatch" some of the orders.

These orders, according to the article, are set to be complete by February or March of next year, with production starting in May/June for a July release. They look to ship 20 million units in the first year, a stark contrast to the 2 million the Wii U has shipped this year.

Of course, this is meant to be taken as a rumor, but it seems possible at the very least we'll know more about NX in the next year.

Uh...I still don't see this happening. I mean, 2016 just seems way too soon for this. Every time I see another rumor relating to NX releasing next year, I just assume it's likely fake. I guess you never know but I don't think they could release it that soon.

Um...wow... That does seem too soon.

But if Nintendo was desperate, they certainly would "rush" it, so to speak. :/

We still don't know much about this system, but I still have the belief Nintendo wants to get this out as soon as possible because of the crummy Wii U sales. So, that rumor doesn't seem TOO far-fetched.

The Wii U won't even be 4 years old then.
This better be false.

This isn't as very realistic rumor; development of a new console takes longer then a few month's at the very least a year. So I doubt this rumor is true.

I don't believe it. The NX won't take that short a time to make.. Unless Nintendo exports it from china or something. XD

I agree with all of you because there's no way in hell they'd be able to finish not only a new console, but one with new architecture, a completely new concept, AND one they're trying to get tons of support for at launch, both first and third party, in 2 years less than the usual console cycle. I mean it just can't happen.

I agree as well. Honestly the 2016 launch rumors are somewhat ridiculous now. I can see a very slim chance of it happening or maybe in a alternate timeline but it would probably be way too similar to the Wii U. At least I hope they aren't real as that would mean the Wii U would have a much shorter lifespan.

Don't they have other things in development as well like the QOL? Things like that could make sure we won't see the NX for awhile.

I think the end of 2016 might happen now since the Wii U support is hardly there anymore and there's a rumor just about every day now. I think the 20 million units in one year won't happen though and by third party games the insider must mean watered down ports.
