When it comes to Nintendo NX news, things have been quite slow over the last couple of months and while rumours are still predicting that the console will launch before March 2017, Nintendo itself is really dragging its feet with official announcements. However, Nintendo may finally break its silence on the subject this month, with reports suggesting that official NX news could be coming in just a matter of days.
According to analyst firm, Macquarie Group, Nintendo’s official reveal for the NX should take place this week, ahead of the company’s next quarterly investor meeting, which is scheduled in for the 26th of October.
One of the big factors that will affect Nintendo NX sales will be pricing. Previously, UK retailers have suggested that the console would need to launch at £200 or less to compete with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. However, according to Macquarie’s estimations, the console may end up launching at the $300-$350 mark.
This price point could end up being a sore point given that the console isn’t supposed to be as powerful as the PS4, or even the PS4 Pro, which is coming in November. Aside from that, Xbox One S and PS4 Slim bundles are starting to go for less than £200 at some retailers, which will make competition pretty tough.

KitGuru Says: These are all just analyst estimates at the moment, rather than hard facts. Still though, it would be nice to see some official Nintendo NX information before the end of October.
