After the big reveal of the new Nintendo NX comes the actual production of the said units. According to reports, Foxconn Electronic company has confirmed the production of the consoles. Since its announcement and the apparent release date of March 2017, the device?remained quiet and subtly discussed. Today however, showed some significant progress in the console.
With a targeted annual production of 9.5 to 10 million units, the device?is far from the conventional system of Sony and Microsoft. In fact, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot praised the hybrid hand-held system, describing it as a fantastic machine with a new approach to gaming.
The NX is a codename for the new machine, and when the company announced they are releasing a new platform with a different approach, they also meant to distribute it region-free. Take note that the hand held device?does not succeed any of the company?s existing gaming platforms. It is a new and standalone gaming platform and part of the Nintendo series.
This new development on the Nintendo NX production was accompanied by the news that Pegatron and Foxconn Electronic has started the production of the PS4 Pro console. Alongside the production of the PS4 Pro console is the trial test production for the Nintendo NX.
