Are graphics important when it comes to gaming? For some gamers yes, but for others, not really. After all back in the day, there were many gamers (and there are probably still quite a few) who were into MUDs, games that were completely based on text and where it was pretty much left to your imagination.
Basically the idea is that if the game is fun enough, graphics shouldn’t really matter so much, which is what Nintendo has typically been striving for and it looks like the upcoming Nintendo NX won’t be so different. According to a report from MCV, they have heard from their sources that the Nintendo NX’s graphics will be somewhere between the PS3 and PS4.
Now the PS3 had pretty good graphics for its time, meaning that compared to newer consoles there are instances where it does look a bit dated. However keeping it between the quality of the PS3 and PS4 does seem like a happy middle. After all Nintendo did state earlier this year that the NX will be focusing more on the games and less on the specs.
Other rumored NX features include how it is more or less a portable console with the ability to dock itself and be used at home with your TV. Recent drawings have also surfaced showing what the console could look like. In any case take it with a grain of salt, but like we said, at the end of the day the question is how fun will it be?
