Hey #TetraFam! Yeah I’m going to get that to stick. Better than #TeamNinja and #Tetraverse. Vote for #TetraFam in the comments.
It’s Mike (@shipitwhatsgood) with another weekly edition of Speculation Station bringing you the latest juicy gossip and rumours in the gaming industry. This week we have reports about new consoles on the horizon! Let’s get to it:
- Nintendo MH, a new handheld in the works?
- New Xbox 1.5 + Slim Model coming
- Titanfall 2 leak reveals new poster and gameplay information
- No Man’s Sky delayed
1. Nintendo MH, a new handheld in the works?
A recent report indicates a new handheld console codenamed the Nintendo MH! Pretty sweet news for you handheld fans who have been waiting for a new addition to your collection. There have been rumours about the Nintendo NX (Nintendo’s next home console) being released as a home and portable console, so it will be interesting to see where the MH fits. Is Nintendo going to have a continued stranglehold on the handheld market the next generation? Leave a comment and tell me what you think!
2. New Xbox 1.5 + Slim Model coming
Xbox 1.5 is on the way! Upgrading to maintain par for the course a la PS4 Neo is what I’m hearing. Windows Insider Brad Sams believes that the updated console will sport 4K video, but not 4K gaming to maintain compatibility. “The Xbox 1.5 is probably going to do 4K video but not gaming,” he says. Sounds like a lot of noise for some slight upgrades. Worth the buy? As for the current model, it sounds like it’s going on a diet with whispers of a slim model being announced at E3.
3. Titanfall 2 leak reveals new poster with new info on gameplay
As usual, Reddit has leaked some new info on a game. The above picture is a supposed leak of Titantfall 2. One of the biggest pieces of gameplay information is about a new grappling hook item that can get you into your Titan, navigate through the larger multiplayer maps, or even pull your enemies toward you while they’re in mid-air. GET OVER HERE!
4. No Man’s Sky delayed
The super hyped space game No Man’s Sky is apparently being delayed, and won’t hit it’s initial release date of June 21st, 2016. There’s currently no exact release date for the game, but there are reports of it being bumped until July or August. Hopefully, this delay isn’t a trend and doesn’t go the way of Duke Nukem. We gamers just want our games on time! “I’m here to play games and chew bubblegum. And I’m all out of gum.”
I hope you enjoyed this week’s edition of Speculation Station! See you next week.
