E3 is slowly creeping up on us, and with that means more rumors, and even some official announcements. While we don’t know much about the future of the PS4, we do have a tiny bit of more information about Nintendo’s NX. How will this news affect Sony? Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!
Nintendo has, unfortunately, announced that the NX will not be releasing this year, and instead will launch in March of next year. For me, and many others, this news is disappointing. I was seriously looking forward to playing on their next console before the year was over. Even more, Nintendo will not even be showing the NX at E3. Meaning it will be months from now before we even see the system, or know anything about it. But while this news might be frustrating for Nintendo fans, it could be a great opportunity for Sony.
If the rumors are to be believed, and we all know how terrible Sony is at keeping secrets, then a upgraded PS4 is on the way. Like I said in a previous Thought, the PS4K and the NX very well could be competing with each other. And if I am right, most people looking to spend money on a new console will likely choose an entirely new system over a more powerful one that they already own. So Sony will be at a disadvantage right from the start. But the recent NX news could change that.
The only thing we know about the NX is that it is releasing in March, and that it won’t be at E3. If Sony is smart, they will not take this opportunity lightly. If they are able to get the new PS4 out this year, then that means they can beat the NX to market. And with the NX not being at E3, that would be a great time for Sony to go all out with their new system. They could get people hyped for it, over a Nintendo console that they still won’t know anything about.
I still believe that Sony is going to have a hard time competing with a brand new system from Nintendo. But the most recent news about the NX could give Sony the change they need to make the PS4K a lot more successful than it would have been if it launched after the competition.
