We’re big gaming fans, but gaming phones aren’t our only focus. We also like gaming consoles, “desktop” ones, too big to lug around. Mesut G. Designs has created such a console and has dubbed it the Samsung Nintendo Cross (NX) concept.
During the year, Nintendo has stated multiple times that it wants to get into the mobile game business and seeing Samsung mentioned here, I can’t think of anything but a partnership. Samsung also wants a piece of the console pie, since they’ve invested heavily in Ouya after all. They’re also in dire need of a living room hub, something like the Apple TV.
The Nintendo NX may be that hub and rely on smartphones and tablets as second screens and accessories. This console concept sure is flashy, I’ll give you that much. It’s very brightly colored and looks like something from the 1990s. That was a golden age for the consoles and we’re living in a bit of a golden age right now, but rather for the new type of devices, like smartphones or Android consoles…
