Nintendo NX controller to have virtual buttons and touch screen?

http://www.gamnesia.com/news/nintend...virtual-button

Quote:
Ever since it was teased earlier this year, fans have been speculating about what Nintendo's NX console could look like; now, thanks to a recent patent from the Big N, we might finally have our first glimpse at the NX's controller. A patent filed by Nintendo back in June was officially published on the US Patent and Trademark Office's website yesterday that depicts an oblong touch-screen controller that looks much like a cross between the Wii U GamePad and Pro Controller.

The patent's description states that there are two holes in the display for control sticks, but it appears to forgo traditional buttons in favor of virtual buttons that are operated on the touchscreen. However, the patent is merely an early design, and it could be updated later to include traditional buttons or other features—not to mention that tech companies file patents all the time with no intention of using them.

You can check out Nintendo's illustration of the device, as well as a mock-up of the device by Joe Gray, in the gallery below.

Seriously? How do they expect to compete with Sony and Microsoft with this? The Wii-U sold like crap, I don't think people would be willing to go for this.

Nintendo's just a generation away from being a third-party software developer.

Man the gaming community really just wants the next Nintendo console to be a PS4 but with Nintendo licenses.

There's reports the NX won't challenge the PS4/Xbone in terms of graphical power

That's interesting. I remember reading an interview with someone from Nintendo saying that the NX will "leapfrog" the PS4 and XB1. Maybe something changed behind the scenes. I know leapfrog could have meant anything, but you'd think they were talking about capabilities that could at least rival the competition. Graphics don't make a good game, but third party developers avoided the Wii and Wii-U because it wasn't even close to the level of the PS3/360, let alone the current gen.

I love Nintendo, I want them to do good, but I don't see how having something like this will win people over.

I've honestly found the opposite. Most hardcore gamers that are either in the Playstation or Xbox camp seem to always want Nintendo to fail and the moment they're announced for a new console they just turn their attention away. Remember when the Wii was first announced and then released and everyone (myself included) was criticizing the controller and the style of gameplay and how it relied too much on motion control vs. a traditional controller? Then Wii sales went through the roof and 3-4 years later Sony and Microsoft introduced the Move and Kinect.
