Post Potential for GameCube and Wii Emulation on Nintendo NX
Quote:
The past week's key revelations on the NX, established through multiple sources and reinforced by plenty of checks and off-the-record conversations, have many (including us here at Nintendo Life) confident that there's validity and value to the details.

One key aspect is the use of Nvidia technology to power the system, likely to be a Tegra chip or variation on that technology. There are plenty of positives to that choice, but some negatives in that the customary backward compatibility we're so used to thanks to the iterative architectures of GameCube / Wii / Wii U will be tough to recreate.

The answer, should Nintendo seek one, is emulation. Digital Foundry explores this in its latest video, looking at how a Shield TV (which uses Tegra X1) manages with GameCube and Wii games through the unofficial Dolphin emulator for Android. This sort of testing has multiple provisos - the NX may use a chip more powerful than X1, an unofficial emulator via Android doesn't deliver the optimum results. The experiment's interesting, though, as it demonstrates that emulation is certainly viable on this technology.

If the NX is able to Emulate Gamecube and WII games, AND have compability (of some sort) for all the controllers available (like GC controller, WII, And maybe even the wii u gamepad)
It would make such a HUGE Difference, because it would be easier for people to pick up the NX.

If it IS able to Emulate those, One thing i'd like to see is the compability to use the actual CD'S from the games (tho i doubt that this is coming)
But even with a different chipset, why would they NOT Do that?

Why would they drop the ENTIRE Virtual market? What about all those people that bought games on their nintendo network account? They probably have a WII U/3DS, but it would be a big ''fuck you'' to the fellow nintendo fans that did follow from all the way.

Now let's talk about something important, that has a big chance of coming,

WII U backward Compability

Okay, We ALL know here that the WII U Had a Awful launch, we all regret it and we hope nintendo won't fuck up again with the NX,

But holy shit does the WII U have good games, quite a lot!

By adding WII U compability to the NX, Nintendo would, in theory only gain more money, they are a company after all, why? well :

People Interested in buying an NX, let's say due to BETTER marketing (we are talking about casuals right now, People that thinks the WII U is just another WII, okay? keep that in mind)
After buying an NX and some NX games, these people might learn that they can play these ''WII U'' games on the shelves, or for their kids, and they'll have a vast majority of games to buy
...and that can only benefit for Nintendo.

Damn i went in a fucking rant there lmao

Emulation is a touchy subject. N64 emulation is difficult even for official consoles as each game requires individual code to make it work but Gamecube and Wii emulation has been virtually cracked wide open.

Yeah, I think it'd help out Nintendo a lot and as such set a certain precedent for their console launches for once.
