You are as wrong as one can be and your arguments show a lack of pretty basic understanding.
Pot, meet kettle.
In fact we know Nintendo doesnt define its value proposition to customers by hardware potency. Just read what they have been reiterateing over and over again for years.
Further we still dont know how powerfull the NX actually will be, but it being portable, you better keep your hopes in check.
Circumstances necessitate change, and in this case it's more true than ever.
The changes made to the Zelda formula in BotW are indicative of Nintendo's drive to try something new, and after the mistake of putting the Wii U out at a level of power that left third parties leaving them left and right, and Nintendo's statement that they do want those games, you can bet they won't be making the same power mistake they made with the Wii U.
And an increase in power over the Wii U, cannot be priced below the Wii U.
It's unreasonable to the point of stupid to expect as much.
Anouma saying BotW will be the same experience on NX and Wii U, could also mean the portable version will be downgraded in some way, why does everybody expect the opposite ?
The experience he meant is obviously in terms of gameplay, not graphics, which will obviously be improved on the NX version.
We expect the opposite because they aren't going to cut the Wii U off early if their next system can't take its place in the home console market, which always has been, and will always be, a part of their lifeblood.
There is absolutely no evidence that the NX versionwill be a downgraded portable version, and it's actually pretty silly to expect it to be, given the comments made during E3 by both demo booth attendants and the stuff alluded to by the Treehouse staff.
I think they learned their lesson form the 3DS launch debacle due to a way too hefty launch price and also to some degree from Wii Us lukewarm reception. Even more them going for a broader demographic I expect the system to be 199$ and 249$ with BotW packed in if tehres no Mario at launch.
Would you like a back rub and night services with that?
Seriously, you cannot honestly expect a new console that is more powerful than the Wii U to be priced so low that they're practically giving them away.
Again, Nintendo is NOT A CHARITY.
Expecting a new system with more modern tech to be priced at less than half of what the PS4 was at is just DUMB at this point.
Selling a more powerful system at a higher price, if the tech does indeed justify it, is not the same as repeating the 3DS/Wii U pricing mistakes.
If it were, no one would have bought a PS4, much less an XB1 or Wii U. (and despite negative comparisons to the competition's numbers, 13 million units is still a profitable number, and they can only go up from such a low one at this point anyways)
