No doubt Nintendo has a long-term strategy here. First they announce the NX. Then they let rumors stew for over a year. Finally they release a 3-minute trailer. Then they say they won't speak on it again until at least Jan 1, which is less than three full months from release at that point. So how has this strategy worked on you? What, if anything specifically, sways you either way?
When was the last time Nintendo released a region free console? Merely curious. Because I never expect them to do that again, personally. They are too big on anti-piracy or whatever their reasoning is.
If the docks don't have any actual processing capabilities and act solely as a charging base with HDMI out, they should be pretty damn cheap. I definitely see the appeal of having one in multiple rooms of the house for people who live with their families. I bet they'll at least sell them on their website shop.
I'm sure they will sell the docks separately, I mean look at all those rich millennials with tech jobs in the trailer, do you think they have just one fabulous apartment? Heck no. They have a loft in Williamsburg, an entire house in the Mission, and at least one apartment in Europe, probably Paris but maybe Rome. They're going to need to docks in every one of their homes!
I'm just glad someone is finally doing something about the lack of playing video games at basketball courts. I can't count the number of times I've been playing basketball and wished I could take a break and play pretend basketball right there, but then go back to playing regular basketball again. Instead we have to call for an Uber and go back home to play pretend basketball, and then people are like "It's getting late and I have rooftop parties to attend, see you tomorrow since we don't have jobs and can play games from dusk until dawn."
