What are you talking about...? I didn't say that the NX will be running Tegra X1
a handheld that is also around the power of Wii U (see Tegra rumors)
¬_¬. Trying to recover, using semantics.
The Manufacturing Article, NOT labled Rumor, had a user that Pointed out that it was Too Early to use Tegra2 and that it could only be Tegra1, IF Tegra at all. Though I recall the other source(European, with many users standing behind it's reliability) said it would Use Tegra. Combining both, ergo, suggests that it HAS to be Tegra 1, IF Tegra at all. If not, at least one of those sources is wrong. Compound all this with Nintendo's consistently known practices of cutting corners since the Wii Era.
Going to swing by this one, while I'm here:
they would have a MASSIVE shortage of games
Not UNLESS they plan on shovelware Trash apps making up most of their game linup. AND that's backed by what Kimishima said about a new system to get more games out much faster, compounded by the confirmation that the NX will be able to play Nintendo Mobile Titles. I posted in the past 3 possible theories about what that system could be, in the possible/practical sense, and one of the worst case scenarios was the Mobile Trash App Shovelware one. AND Now, they are talking about Hiring Retail Leads and as I recall, The guy or gal at the Department store used that title in conversation that I picked up on when someone asked them about their job. Works IN the Store, but not AT the store.
the handheld would be closer to Wii U in power than 3DS
And in EITHER case, it won't satisfy 3rd parties*.
*UNLESS, they consider Mobile shovelware Trash Apps to be, 3rd parties.
Having to manage two consoles that are close to Wii U in power would be suicide.
Having to Manage even 1 console or even a Portable with laughable specs like that in this day and age would also be considered that. If the WiiU isn't even doing well now, what makes you possibly think it would even be viable 6 months from now? Tech specs are rising quicker each season now. We finally have the 4 Terabyte portable drives commercially available. And by this time Next year, we may even start seeing Solid State Portable Drives starting at 1 or half a Terabyte commercially available. They are already phasing out regular drives in favor of Solid State, bout time if you ask me. So your red flag would be if they actually use regular drives for storage, as opposed to Solid state, provided it isn't Timeshare/stream/DRM key/Account based.
Their track record shows they are constantly making big mistakes. BoTW is Still on WiiU, so that may just be the last Good decision they make/made. We still don't know what the NX is, but we will soon. I for one am sitting in the life bout with my ceremonial shears, just waiting for a reason to cut the line from the main ship if/before it sinks. In the sense, I already jumped ship. I Can jump back on, but with each passing day, and each bad decision they make, I'd rather just stay in the boat and wait it out.
