Could Zelda Wii U Be For The Nintendo NX? (Chibi Gaming Thoughts)

Could Zelda Wii U Be For The Nintendo NX?will zelda wii u be on the nintendo nx

Recently I posted an article that the Nintendo NX could be a 4K console (you can read it here), but what could this mean for the upcoming Zelda Wii U? Nintendo definitly wants to make thier games look the best but the Wii U is still only 1080p HD, and if my prediction is right then the NX would be 4K.

The Element Of Laughter, Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic

I drew Pinkie Pie, why? I just felt that I needed to draw something and put it on the new blog. As for why Pinkie Pie.... It's Pinkie Pie don't question it. I wish I was a better drawer but this is pretty much what I can do, I'd be better if I practice, but as I get distracted easily I tend to move to other things.

Will The Nintendo NX Be 4K? Is 4K Home Video Game Systems Possible?

With Nintendo's next console on the horizon (if the Nintendo NX is a home console), would it be capable of 4K gaming? Well I can't build a home console but I can build a PC equivalent so that is what I did. Please keep in mind that this is a PC equivalent and not an actual video game console.

To build it I looked up part on the website, but also keep in mind the parts I list will be at retail price and Nintendo would actually buy them at wholesale price and I have to keep in mind that a profit need to be made from this as well. Finally the core parts will have to be modified to make a more dedicated system than a PC is otherwise I would not be able to get the full power of the parts.

Let's start off with the core components of the home console.

$69.99 AMD Athlon X4 860K Kaveri Quad-Core 3.7 GHz Desktop Processor
$34.99 (after rebate) MSI GeForce GT 720, 1GB 64-Bit Graphics Card
$32.99 Klevv Fit 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
$49.99 MSI A68HM-E33 V2 FM2+ AMD A68H 4 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
$19.95 Seagate DB35 Series 7200.3 ST3320820SCE 320GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive
$10.08 LOGISYS Computer PS480D 480W ATX12V Power Supply
$17.99 (after rebate) XION Gaming Series XON-310_BK MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Next I'll list other important parts but these one are not as specifice as above as they can be more easily switch with other parts.
$5 HDMI 4K
$16.19 PCI 8 Channel 8CH 7.1 Sound Card

Other parts
$7 for a cartridge reader, this is the estimated cost I came up with based on the price of internal SD card readers. I went for a card reader instead of a disk drive because of the possible leak that the device won't have a disk drive.
$50 for one controller, either a Wii Motion Plus with Nunchuk or a Classic Controller.

This brings us to an amount of $314.17

You may have noticed that I didn't list an operating system, well since this is not for an actual PC it will not need the programs of such. Also I have no way of knowing just how much an operating system for a PC would be but I think it would be much less since video game consoles are dedicated systems and do not require the ability of a PC.

Next we got to figure out what we are going to sell are console at, and to do this I will look at the Wii U and 3DS. Keep in mind that these are estimates I found online.
$228 To build a Wii U selling at $299
$101 To build a 3DS selling at #249
So we are looking at an additional $70 to $150

Estimated retail total comes to $384 to $460

I must say again that the parts I listed are priced at retail and not whole sale that Nintendo would buy the parts at. So the price will be much less then what I just put down. So let's just do an estimate of $10 off most of the parts and say that comes to about $60 to $100 off the above total retail price.

This brings us to a final estimated cost for a 4K Nintendo console at retail to cost between
$284 to $400

Finally, for a PC the 4K Gaming may not work so well. I think it wouldn't even be possible to get a smooth 30fps on a PC. However a video game console is a more dedicated system which will allow the full use of the parts for gaming. With this in mind I believe a smooth 30fps would be easy, but 60fps is another story. Also I do not know how the games would look, how many particles it could render at once, how many polygons, how many physics it could handle. This is the stuff that I can not say.

Beautiful Panoramic Screenshot of a Lake And Waterfalls In Xenoblade Chronicles X

Planet Mira is full of beautiful sights and wonders, so I wanted to get a panoramic screenshot to help show it's beauty. To do this I took multiple screenshots while moving the camera and then cut and pasted them together. Unfortunately one of the creatures was moving and messed up a small portion of the image, but I think it still came out all right.

Stupid indegin creature messed up my shot of this lake on planet Mira.

This image was taken in the video game Xenoblade Chronicles X, and shows one of my favorite sites on planet Mira. I love waterfalls and wanted to show it off in a panoramic photo, and with some complications I still got a good image to show to everyone.

Welcome To The New Blog

I bet you are wondering what to expect on this blog, so I'll tell you in my own way and style.

Sprite Comics
Gaming Art
Original Character Art
Thoughts (Mostly Video Gaming)
My own way
Other Stuff To Know

--- Sprite Comics

I have done Sprite Comics a long time ago on another blog and enjoyed coming up with the stories, so I have thought of doing that again. This time I hope to add more to the stories though, If you wish to see the old sprite comics you can find them on my old blog at

--- Gaming Art

I don't draw much but I would like to get more into it and since this is a gaming blog I think it would make sense to have gaming art. Some ideas of what I could draw is; Game Characters, Game Environments, Game Items, and Game Thumbnails For My Lets Plays.

--- Original Character Art

I have one or two original characters that I have created in the past for various reasons and would love to give them more life, so I need someplace to do that. I might also at some point create a comic series with them.

--- Thoughts (Mostly Video Gaming)

Everyone has there own thoughts and I could use a place to share them. Such post will be like what I think about video games, ideas for video games, hopes for video games, basically just gaming thoughts and impressions.

--- Reviews

What would a video game blog be without reviews? I do not plan to do them often though and prefer to have it more like just talking about thoughts as before, but from time to time I will try to do a review in my own way.

--- My own way

Decided to add this part to explain what I mean by "my own way". I have seen a few blogs online but you usually have to look through the post to find the information you want. So people like such long paragraphs but I don't. So what I mean by "my own way" is that the posts on this blog will be like post, short paragraphs that get to the point.

--- Other Stuff To Know

Other than the blog I have a gaming channel on Youtube where I post my let's plays. If I where to post post on this blog every time I upload a new video the blog would become a mess, so instead I'll see if I can get a gadget on the side to notify you of interesting videos I post as I post daily to that channel.
