**Nikkei: Nintendo’s NX platform will use an Android OS
The Nikkei put up an [B]editorial** earlier today about Nintendo’s partnership with DeNA. It’s a pretty long article (and you need an account to read most of it), but most of it is about historical connections and basically an overview on the relationship.
The interesting part is that the article starts by discussing Nintendo’s next platform - the one Iwata codenamed NX. They have an insider source who claims that the OS for the platform will be Android based, and that it is a paradigm shift for Nintendo business-wise. The source goes on to say that when third parties abandoned Nintendo’s WiiU one by one, it caused turning point in the company. So while they have had a philosophy of developing their own software and hardware concepts internally for all these years, they are now prepared to embrace a more open platform with Android, to allow developers more flexibility in making content that can also be on smartphones and tablets.
Please do not assume that the NX is an Ouya or a Smartphone. None of those things are implied. This is merely about the software architecture of the operating system.
Ovo bi mogla biti interesantna ideja od strane Nintenda. Možda će zaista biti kao što su neki pretpostavljali, da će NX ipak biti hibridna konzola, pa otud korišćenje Androida kao osnove. U svakom slučaju, biće interesantno videti šta su smislili i konačno dobiti više detalja kada budu bili spremni da pričaju o NX i detaljima u vezi sa saradnjom sa Dena.
Možda treba da ponovo napravimo Next Gen deo foruma?
