Nintendo NXNintendo’s next-generation console, codenamed NX is reported to be a hybrid portable console powered by Nvidia’s Tegra X1 processor, according to reports from Eurogamer.

It’s rumoured the NX’s hybrid design will feature detachable controllers – so you could use it like a Nintendo DS and and then dock it at home to play on your big TV – offering a seamless transition between handheld and home gaming.
