Nintendo Combines Home & Mobile Gaming Hardware

We’ve been hearing rumors of the upcoming Nintendo NX for a while. Yesterday, Nintendo unveiled the new console (though it won’t ship until next year) and it’s actually called the Nintendo Switch. The new hardware is an attempt to combine mobile and home gaming into a single system. The same hardware components can be configured as a controller, or an on-the-go device. The same games will be able to be used in either format. However, there is still no word on what games will be available at launch. This could be a good move for Nintendo or it could be the next Wii U.
