Does this mean they'll still be "left in the dust" hardware-wise? I'm only thinking this because a mobile console usually has substantially worse graphics than it's at-home counterpart.

Still, it's the games that count. Nintendo ruined themselves by saying they're a "casual games" company, and it's going to be even worse now that they've said their still trying to make it work.

Wii U/3DS are kind of already like what they're talking about, unless I'm misunderstanding their goals. The big red going up for me regarding this idea has to do with the pricing. Like you said,

"...one thing Nintendo definitely doesn't want to do is force every game to be made available on both platforms."

and wind up killing what support they have. Plus, I don't really want to spend more than $200 for a handheld, which seems likely if the hardware is comparable to a home console.

I would so much more like to hear Nintendo plan on building their online infrastructure. They've come a longish way since friend codes, but their devices are nowhere near as accessible as the competition when it comes to online gaming.

nintendo has no idea what they are doing, all they're doing is trying to create something for novelty purposes, it will sell for a little while but just like the wii, people will realize its not that great

This basically confirms the BEAUTIFUL rumour of the Fusion Terminal and Fusion DS is a thing.

Nintendo's next console and handheld will run on the same operating system - which will make software development for both systems very similar and more convenient. (less game droughts) The handheld will also be capable of locally streaming the console's games like the Wii U Gamepad currently does. In this sense, Wii U games will be fully backwards compatible with the new console if you own both the console and handheld, or maybe they'll make the Gamepad compatible with the new console like they made the Wiimote compatible with Wii U.

They'll up the graphical capabilities for the console to be closer to or exceeding the PS4/XB1, while the handheld has about Wii U graphics. (which is still awesome) If this is the case, Nintendo can launch this new console for the holidays next year --- and it wouldn't really seem like they gave up on the Wii U because this new console will basically have a Wii U absorbed inside of it. (so current Wii U games in development could continue to be in development and release for both Wii U and Fusion. Eventually they can switch all development to Fusion exclusively)

Another feature that would be really cool is if you can go to a friends house and stream all your home games to your handheld from another house using Wi-Fi.

Oh man, if this is true, I will be so *bleep*ing happy!! Just Imagine Hyrule graphically powered with a machine that's at the very least, as powerful as the Playstation 4!! It's about time, I want nintendo to go back to what it was back in the 90s.

I always thought they should create a system that had a wireless headphone ( beats or whatever) to support sound, cause only games like pokemon have high sound.
They should also create a talking/texting place to help us, instead of sucky miiverse
They should create the system so that it can be in better 3D, but yet even possibly create pokemon and mario better

Not that mario and pokemon suck, but to get more people to like it, or love it even more
