Nintendo Xbox

In a slight development, VentureBeat journalist and industry insider, Jeff Grubb, has apparently revealed "pretty much everything" we saw on Phil Spencer's shelves during a livestream is a sign of things to come. That includes the Nintendo Switch, too.

Grubb made these comments during a recent GamesBeat podcast and this was followed by "Shpeshal Ed" of XboxEra, mentioning how the "cat seems to be out of the bag" about the Xbox and Nintendo news, and that more would be revealed this Fall.

While there's already been a lot of speculation since information began circulating, one thing it's supposedly not got anything to do with - according to the same source - is "GoldenEye" - which appears to be a reference to the recently leaked XBLA game.

So, what could be going on between Nintendo and Microsoft? While nobody has said anything - the official Halo Instagram added fuel to the fire by sharing the following fan art of Mario X Masterchief by pikathorchu. This was previously shown on 4th April, at the end of a community spotlight Halo post.

Last week, a similar but different story did the rounds about the Kojima Productions' statue on Phil's shelf - igniting rumours that the legendary game developer may be working towards an exclusive deal with Microsoft.

What do you make of all this yourself? Do you think Microsoft and Nintendo might be up to something? Leave a comment below.
