Report: Nintendo NX to Enter Mass Production in Q2 2016, to Ship 10-12M in 2016 - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 30 November 2015 / 6,583 Views
Nintendo will begin mass production of its upcoming NX platform in the second quarter of 2016, according to a report by DigiTimes.
The report states that Nintendo is targeting to ship 20 million units of the NX in 2016. However, the upstream component suppliers expect Nintendo to ship between 10 million and 12 million units. It's worth remembering that these are figures that the Wii U has achieved in roughly three years.
Foxconn Technology, Macronix, Pixart Imaging, Coxon Precise Industrial, Nishoku Technology, Delta Technology, Lingsen Precision Industries, and Jentech will all supply components for the upcoming platform.
Very little is known about the platform at this time, but if it does enter mass production in the second quarter of 2016 that would give it a likely release window of holiday 2016.
