    For the last year ive been away from DCEmu and once you step away its hard to get back but I decided a while back that its time to go back to basics and condense all the sites as far as I can, get rid of meaningless sites and then when I have it all as I want it, get back to newsposting like I used to years ago, with that in mind, all our Nintendo News is now going to be under one site, that means all the DS, 3DS, Wii, Wii U, Gamecube, N64, Snes, GBA, NES, GBC, GB and any future news will all be together.

    When I start posting news again we will host our files also and get back to the good old days.

    Heres the home of Nintendo News here at DCEmu --> http://nintendo-ds.dcemu.co.uk/ ...

    Nintendo is yet to reveal the first details of its upcoming NX console, and we are unlikely to hear anything concrete until this year's E3 conference in June.
    The NX. Probably.

    Regardless, the internet is in a flap about a new set of rumours about a home console and handheld hybrid to replace both Wii U and 3DS.
    Adding fuel to that fire, today saw a marketing survey slide pop up on NeoGAFwith a fresh set of claims - and again, reference to the NX as a console and handheld device. Eurogamer has spoken to individuals who responded to the survey and can verify it exists.
    Whether Nintendo commissioned the survey and to what extent its information represents the console's final form is another matter, however.
    The slide describes NX software as having gameplay which "flows" between the console's home device and handheld.
    Players will be able to earn and share achievements, surf the web and make video calls - so far, so believable.
    But the survey goes on to mention "4k/60fps video streaming" and "gameplay graphics at 900p/60fps". Plenty of Wii U games are 1080p, which makes this claim stand out as odd.
    Eurogamer understands the survey goes on to quiz responders on how much they'd pay for the device and whether they would want a console with a disc drive (or not).
    Another question asks if users would be interested in a Netflix-style game subscription service.

    The survey was posted by major market research company GfK, the same outfit which collects game sales data for Chart-Track in the UK.
    Immediate reaction to the survey - especially the 900p detail - was negative. Although, as already stated, it is likely much of the information contained within was simply to test the waters. Consider the marketing surveys which Ubisoft sends out each year with suggestions for further Assassin's Creed. Some questions reflect features in upcoming games - which are by that point already well into development - while others are there seemingly to simply canvass opinions.
    If this does come from Nintendo, it is probable a similar tactic is being used here. Or, if not from Nintendo, it is another company's best guesses.
    The only thing certain at this point is that Nintendo will reveal details on NX when it is ready - either at E3, or to the Japanese newspaper Nikkei which will publish all the details online prematurely and spoil all the surprises (as has happened in the past).
    We've contacted GfK for comment.

    Looking for a good deal on a refurbished Wii U, but don't like using Nintendo's clunky online shop? Now you have another option -- the company just openedan official eBay store, stocked with new and refurbished games, consoles and accessories. Don't expect to find any deals though: almost everything on the official eBay store conforms to current retail prices (fixed using eBay's "buy it now" feature) or Nintendo's existing refurb pricing.

    Nintendo has patented a home console concept that does not include an optical disc drive. It may or may not be for the company's mysterious upcoming game console, codenamed NX.
    Look, ladies and gentlemen, there's no disc drive anywhere...

    As seen in a Nintendo US patent discovered by astute NeoGAF readers, this upcoming hardware's early version version didn't include such a drive.
    "The example system is not provided with an optical disc drive for reading out a program and/or data from an optical disc," the patent stated. "An example system includes an internal hard disc drive storing a program and/or data, a communication unit transmitting/receiving a program and/or data via a network, and a processor executing a program stored in the hard disc drive to perform game processing."
    Furthermore, it appears that the console's controller will include its own "display unit", ala the screen on the Wii U GamePad.
    If it is for NX then there's still always a chance things will change before launch. After all, the Xbox One nearly didn't have a disc drive, we discovered after the fact.
    Nintendo teased the NX back in March, but didn't reveal anything about it other than it's a "dedicated game platform with a brand-new concept" and more details will be revealed next year.
    We've reached out to Nintendo for comment on this one, but it seems unlikely that we'll receive any confirmation one way or another this early. In the meantime, try to take this with a grain of salt.

    Nintendo has not been shy in downplaying virtual reality’s social credentials – but perhaps this is exactly the reason why its new NX console WILL be a VR machine.
    That’s the conclusion drawn by financial analyst Digi-Capital, which reckons that either virtual reality or augmented reality could be the next ‘blue ocean’ open market that Nintendo can claim as its own.
    Nintendo’s American boss Reggie Fils-Aime said of VR in June that: "What we believe is that, in order for this technology to move forward, you need to make it fun and you need to make it social. I haven't walked the floor, so I can't say in terms of what's on the floor today, but at least based on what I've seen to date, it's not fun, and it's not social. It's just tech."
    Shigeru Miyamoto echoed the sentiment later that same month: "The current types of virtual reality aren't really a good fit for Nintendo's philosophy of trying to create entertainment that people can play together in the living room. We're constantly looking at different technology and experimenting with different elements of it, but we're not feeling virtual reality is currently in a place where it's ready to be released – as a product that fits with our philosophy of fitting in the living room."
    Digi-Capital acknowledges both of these statements, while also acknowledging the late Satoru Iwata’s claims that the NX will be offered “through a Nintendo-like solution”.
    However, what would a non-VR machine leave for Nintendo, it argues? Android has been ruled out(rightly, it says – just look at Ouya’s failure) and the flop that was the Wii U rules out the idea of “another low end traditional console with a controller/screen twist”. Plus, why would Nintendo want to compete with the powerhouses that are PS4 and Xbox One?
    The same argument applies to VR, of course, with major players such as Facebook, Steam and Sony already preparing to fight for bragging rights in that sector.
    Where Digi-Capital differs from other onlookers, however, is in its interpretation of Nintendo’s previous comments about VR. It reckons that rather than dismissing VR entirely, it was instead criticising VR’s current implementation.
    It’s conclusion? The NX could be centred about social virtual reality of augmented reality games.
    It speculates that Nintendo’s solution could involve a low cost dedicated games console with a spec equal to or lower than PS4 and Xbox One that has been optimised for VR/AR. This would be accompanied by a low cast headset, possibly following the template laid out by the likes of Samsung’s Gear VR – which, of course, would tie into Nintendo’s smartphone aspirations.
    It also believes this would be accompanied by an accessible controller designed to do for VR what the WiiRemote did for console gaming
    “This looks a bit like the original Wii strategy applied to the AR/VR market in the context of smartphones, and could enable Nintendo to leverage its IP to again ‘disrupt an entire industry, and in a good way’,” it added.
    “Incorporating smartphone HMD holders could split processing between a central console and multiple smartphones, enabling social gameplay by lowering total system costs to the user. This might be achieved with a low cost console for co-ordination amongst players, position tracking, controller interactions etc, with additional AR/VR processing handled by CPUs/GPUs in smartphones in HMD holders and/or dedicated HMDs.
    “This approach could also allow iOS/Android game developers to leverage existing skills and IP with a dedicated SDK (i.e. lower game development costs and earlier commercial viability). High quality positional tracking integrated with HMDs/controllers could further enable Immersive VR like the Vive and Oculus, but at a much lower price point. Lastly, the DeNA partnership could be leveraged to incorporate the now dominant free-to-play (or “free-to-start” as Iwata described it) business model.”

    The still mysterious Nintendo NX could be the first home console from the company to be region free.
    “Removing region-locking from current game machines presents various issues, so we don't consider that to be very realistic,” Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata told investors, as per a translation on Neogaf.
    “However, regarding NX, given the customer feedback and proposals from the market, while nothing has been decided yet, we're currently investigating internally what problems there would be in realising it.
    “You can think of that as the current situation. I understand your desire, so I'd like to look at it optimistically going forward.”
    Iwata has in the past suggested that “cultural acceptance and legal restrictions” made the idea of making systems region free an impossibility. However, six months age he seemed to change his mind, admitting that a region free console strategy would benefit both Nintendo and its customers.
    Note that while the Wii U is region locked both the PS4 and Xbox One are region free.
    In the past Nintendo’s handheld systems used to be region free, although this practise came to an end with the 3DS.
    The removal of region coding enables customers to obtain games from overseas. Why would they want to do this? Well, in some instances importing games can be cheaper but more commonly it allows gamers to play titles that have not been released in their region. This was quite a big thing for Xbox 360 shmup fans, for instance, who last generation were able to access a small library of Cave titles that the publisher made region-free (which actually varied on a title-by-title basis).
    A more modern complication with region-free gaming is that games bought from other regions may not be compatible with DLC or other add-on content acquired in their home region.

    The trade price of the Wii U 8GB Basic console has been significantly cut in the UK, MCV understands.
    Nintendo in late October slashed in the region of £70 off of the trade price of the Wii U, with one retail source saying that Nintendo is actively trying to “clear out” the existing stock of the white console.
    The result is a handful of pretty sizable discounts to the hardware in the UK including a £199.99 offer from Amazon(that includes Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, Wii Party U and NintendoLand), a £189.99 bundle from Zavvi(including Super Smash Bros and NintendoLand), an assortment of £159.99 offers from GAME (including two games and an Amiibo) and a games-less £149.86 offer fromShopTo.
    The trade price of the Premium 32GB model has not changed and comments from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata earlier this year suggests this is not going to change in the short term.
    Nintendo doesn’t officially cite RRPs in the UK, meaning that it will typically not highlight any price cuts – a stark contrast to the noise made by rivals Sony and Microsoft about their recent next-gen pricing activity.
