Several potential leaks about the Nintendo NX have surfaced.

Nintendo keeps the next console super secret. The company basically only revealed the name of the Wii U successor. The Nintendo NX could though be released as early as Q1 2016.

Now some details about the Nintendo NX leaked via a GFK survey posted by Liam Robertson on Twitter. The survey page lists some information about the Nintendo NX. The juiciest details are that the Nintendo NX would 4K/60fps video streaming support, but only 900p/60fps for gameplay. The 900p has already caused a major uproar on the web. Why can't Nintendo just support full HD like the PS4 or Xbox One?

The other detail that has gamers scratch their head is that Gameplay flows between Nintendo NX console and Nintendo NX handheld device. Is the Nintendo NX coming in a similar setup as the Wii U? What will be new then?

Adding to the confusion is an analyst report by David Gibson that says the Nintendo NX may work with smartphones, PCs and also the Sony PlayStation 4. Why would the Nintendo NX work with a Sony PS4?

A rumor from last year said that the NX is based on Android. This would give Nintendo a broad basis for interoperability, but the PS4? This sounds very far fetched.

It is really time that Nintendo starts introducing the Nintendo NX and it better be good. The company can't afford another Wii U debacle.
