In my boredom and while I’m waiting for my failed attempt at beating my Japanese copy of Chrono Trigger to upload, I decided to write a few things I’d like to see for the NX. This isn’t about waiting it to be an “uber console” or whining about account systems. It’s more just features and extra things I’d like to see it be able to do.
Built in Twitch/Youtube/etc Streaming
The PS4 and XBox One both have this, and it’s really useful if you don’t have a good capture setup *cough*like me*cough*.
USB 3 ports.
This is something that could help with external drive and peripheral support. Plus USB3 is now a well established standard and shouldn’t cost anymore to add to the hardware than USB2.
Video Out For The Portable
Since there is likely to be a portable “NX” system as well as the home console, I’d really like to have it include some sort of builtin video out port, it’d be nice to not have to mod the system or have a special version to be able to capture video/stream from it. Or if it’s possible, builtin streaming could also be added to the portable. But that might be more complicated due to needing to encode the video.
Faster/Better Screenshot Feature
This one might be a *bit* nitpicky, but I’d like to see an improved screenshot feature. For one, make it able to save then locally, But also, make it always save them at the games actual resolution. So no more 720p screens of TP/WWHD for example. This applies to the portable even more, on (the original anyway) 3DS it takes quite a while to go into the browser and upload a screen.
Good Dev Tools
This is probably the only thing I’ll bring up as far as this goes, but the development tools need to be really good and developer friendly. Can’t give devs any excuses to not support the system this time (I’m sure they’ll find some anyway.)
Well, duh. We already know we’ll get this, it’s Nintendo after all.
While this doesn’t really matter *as* much to me personally, I know there are certain people *cough*Cheesemeister*cough* that really want this to happen. It seems like it could happen on NX, going by previous comments that Nintendo was looking into it.
An ethernet port would be nice, for people who have “issues” with using wireless (I don’t mean problems getting it to work.)
I guess this wouldn’t be so much for games, more for video playback (Netflix/Youtube/etc) or whatever. I don’t want the NX to turn into the “PS4k” and cost too much. But, you know how people would complain if it could “only” do 1080p.
A Standard Hard Drive
By now Nintendo should be able to include a more standard drive in the system, it doesn’t have to be 2TB but it shouldn’t be required to get an external drive anymore if you go digital only.
That’s all I can think of for now, leave your ideas (avoid hardware power and account system complaints though) below. Or you can also post in the NX Speculation Thread (which hasn’t been getting much use lol)
