In issue 279, we asked readers what the Nintendo NX needs to win them over and make it a must-buy console. Now it's your turn to weigh in.

The responses we received from magazine readers outlined a laundry list of features any successful console needs, with a slightly greater focus on Nintendo's past weaknesses.

A better and more user-friendly online network was also a priority for many readers, along with backwards compatibility for games and Nintendo's popular Amiibo figurines. Another popular request? No more gimmicks for the NX's controller or the system itself – just the power of a modern-day console.
