Rumor: NX is a high-powered portable console with detachable controllers

Another morning, another rumor regarding Nintendo’s new console. This time, however, the story is coming out of Eurogamer, a pretty reliable source.

Eurogamer reported that the NX is a “High-powered handheld console with its own display.” They also reported that the screen itself would be “bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached, or detached.” When the controllers are detached it can be connected to a tv via a sort of docking station, as previously reported.

These rumors seem to fall in line with what we’ve been hearing for months. That the NX would take the concept of the Wii U gamepad to the next level, by essentially transforming it into a full-on handheld system when needed. It’s also rumored that the NX will use cartridges that Nintendo is recommending at 32GB. They also stated that the console will use a new proprietary Nintendo OS and not an Android one as we had previously heard, and will be unveiled in September. They even have a breakdown of the Processor here.

So what do you think? Did Eurogamers sources get it right? I guess we’ll find out come September.
