His leaks have not be earthshaking and there are others who gladly tout Nintendo NX rumors into the interweb. The newest, most likely totally fake, rumors say that the Nintendo NX supports 4K output and has more performance than the PS4.
The NX is supposed to have 12GB of RAM, which is also more than the current generation of video game consoles. Other tidbits that come from reddit user who claims he is a developer working on a roll playing game for the NX include 1TB HDD, regular and touchscreen controller, support of up to 8 controller and not backward compatibility with Wii and Wii U.
What this all means is that we do not know anything about the NX. Nintendo fans clinch to any rumor that surfaces. All rumors about the NX are most likely fake and just derived by wishful thinking. Nintendo fans clearly want a new console that is better than the PS4 and the Xbox One. The easiest way is to say the NX is more powerful, but that is not Nintendo's way. Nintendo is focused on the gaming experience. With the Wii they hit it out of the park. The Wii U was a miss. The NX will again introduce a new way to play.
The E3 2016 begins on June 14. Maybe Nintendo is going to make the NX announcement that this video game show. The timing would be right.
