Shhh....it's a secret.
Recently Nintendo president Satoru Iwata explained that Nintendo is remaining tight-lipped on the NX (next Nintendo console) because they’re afraid competitors will steal their ideas.
Here is Iwata's statement:
“We can’t talk about the NX. If we do, competitors may take our ideas and customers won’t be surprised. This would not be beneficial for the company or its shareholders. The NX is new hardware, and will start from 0. However, the 3DS and Wii U have install bases. Immediately cutting off software for previous hardware upon the release of a new machine is inefficient. We will continue making 3DS and Wii software while preparing for the NX. We are prioritizing satisfying customers who purchased the Wii U.”
You may remember shortly after Nintendo Wii was announced Sony and Microsoft adopted the idea of motion control. I am personally excited for the NX and I hope staying close to the vest works well as Nintendo needs NX to work really well and sell.
Wii U sales were a joke compared to PS4 and Xbox One .
