Remember that NX rumour we had? The one which came from Let’s Play Video Games’ NX report, regarding the NX is to support Motion Controls and Force Feedback? Well Emily Rogers took to Twitter to say there was truth to LPVG’s claim and now LPVG are back with another NX report, which again Emily Rogers has confirmed to be true.
According to LPVG’s sources, the “current NX development hardware” features a spilt D-Pad but also a share button. A share button that is a lot like the one the PlayStation 4 has, as the button can be used to upload still images and video directly to Miiverse, Twitter, Facebook and even YouTube. Furthermore those sources are also claiming that you can even save images and video to an external memory device so that you can transfer them to PC rather easily. Check out the image below, which is a mock-up of how the controller is supposed to look and where the Share button is locate
Having seen this report, Nintendo Life have spoken to some of their own sources and although they were unable to comment if the NX will be able to work in this way, i.e. uploading to YouTube and the others, their sources did confirm the controller does have a Share button and will have a split D-Pad, so it does look like there is some truth to LPVG’s report. A report which Emily Rogers also seems to be supporting as well as sharing a bit of NX news herself, by saying the prototype NX she saw has 32GB of internal memory, much like the Wii U, but hopes the final product will have twice as much.
Sadly though, until Nintendo do come out and officially announce all of the above information is in fact true, as well as actually reveal the NX, for now it is all just rumours and we’ll be seeing a few more in the coming weeks. (Oh what fun…Not!)
