After Nintendo just released a patent that suggests the NX may feature digital games only, Nintendo filed another patent that suggests some sort of new social system. Now, we know Miiverse will be on NX, so I am assuming this patent is showing a new way to post to Miiverse. However, others believe this will be an achievement system.
If this is true, it would be interesting, considering Nintendo has not made any official achievement systems in the past. These past few patents have been causing many rumors about the upcoming Nintendo Console, codename NX. However, Nintendo has yet not responded to this patents.
A recent Nintendo patent is raising rumors about the Nintendo NX possibly going digital or using game cartridges. These rumors are caused by the console design, which doesn't have an optical disk drive. This patent was actually made in February but not released until now. The patent included “Stationary Game Apparatus, Game Apparatus, Game System, Recording Medium and Speed Control Method,”. Although we still don't know the route of the NX, we can assume that it may only feature digital games because of this patent. Many people believe that the Nintendo Codename "NX" will be revealed and even possibly released next year, 2016.
