*Rumor* Nintendo plans to ship 20 million NX Consoles in 2016

Here is an interesting rumor but from the way E3 was handled, could end up being true:

"Japan-based Nintendo is planning to launch its next-generation games console in 2016 and has recently asked its supply chain partners to start pilot production in October, at the latest. The console will be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry), but Pegatron Technology is aggressively trying to snatch some of the orders, according to sources familiar to the plan.
Pegatron and Foxconn both declined to comment.
Nintendo in March announced its plan of releasing Nintendo NX in 2016 and has started visiting its supply chain partners recently. The orders are expected to be finalized in February or March 2016 and mass production will start in May or June 2016, while the console's official launch may take place around July, the sources said.
Nintendo reportedly is looking to ship 20 million Nintendo NX in the first year. The shipment volume of Wii U is estimated at two million units in 2015, according to Digitimes Research.
Component suppliers such as Foxconn Technology, Macronix, PixArt Imaging, Coxon Precise Industrial, Nishoku Technology, Delta Electronics, Lingsen Precision Industries and Jentech, are also expected to land orders from Nintendo for the new console, the sources added."

If this is true, Nintendo is going to be looking at an aggressive 2016 launch of the Nintendo NX. Makes you wonder if they have another "Must Own" Wii situation on what they have innovated with the new system.

Turtles In Time - Dave & Joe Happy Hour

We're back and we finally get to play some TMNT on the SNES with a lot of drinks and fun times to be had. How many of you have played this game in your childhood? Too bad a Wii U/Wii Virtual Console release was never done.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force/Blast Ball - GameXplain Discussion

So the most hated/talked about game at E3 is now being discussed with the guys at GameXplain. I am surprised that they actually don't hate this game nearly has much as the overall census of gamers who watched E3.

Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash - GameXplain Discussion

GameXplain describes the E3 demo they got to play at the show floor. Sounds like what they had to show was very limited with only 1 course and 4 characters to choose from. I am sure Nintendo will be adding a lot more content to this game soon.

It's so nice to finally see Star Fox back in action after 10 years with no mainline console game. It's also great to see the game running so smoothly at 60fps.

Reggie Fils-Aime - Nintendo Fans have had enough

Reggie is a pale shadow of his former self. The time has come for Nintendo to finally make a change at Nintendo America. The latest in the Reggie shenanigans after E3 has been enough to warrant this and many will most likely agree. He works for Nintendo, so the blame should be on Nintendo as well for letting him last this long in the position that he has. 2016 looks like a great time to make this change with the Nintendo NX console on the way.
