Along with several games by RHE themselves and the usual third party releases, the Nexus will have several Nintendo releases, thanks to a partnership between the two companies. Similarly, it's online store will feature games from various other companies.
Though initially receiving some mixed reception due to it's lack of innovation, the Nexus eventually received acclaim due to it's accessibility and overall design, as well as a strong line of launch titles.

The Nexus controller, better known as the Traveller, is a standard controller that comes in wireless and wired variants, though the console comes with a wired Traveller by default. The Traveller supports motion detection via a gyroscope and an accelerometer. It also vibrates. The Traveller is designed to be universally accepted by other consoles and PC's via USB ports. Though the Nexus itself doesn't utilise any such technology, the Traveller has a chip that can scan Amiibo's and similar technology.
A $25 converter will also be available for Xbox Controllers, V-Raptors and Dualshock controllers to make them compatible with the Nexus.
The Traveller controller features the following buttons:
- Nexus Hub Button (located in the center of the controller)
- Directional buttons
- 4 Action buttons
- Four shoulder buttons
- Two trigger bars (on the back of the controller)
- Two Analog sticks
The Library is where the user can access their downloaded games. The TV and Movies section is where the user can access their downloaded shows and movies, as well as Netflix, Youtube and Twitch. The Music section is self-explanatory.
The Nexus will feature a free social service similar to Playstation Home, though RHE has assured the public that it will not feature it's spiritual predecessors many mistakes. The Nexus Hub is not available on launch.
Achievements & Trading Cards
The Nexus allows for achievements. In addition, playing games earns the player relevant trading cards. These cards can be combined to create a set, which unlocks additional content in the Nexus Hub as well as badges for their user profile, a la Steam.
On the Rift Shop, the user can buy various themes with different backgrounds and background music. The colour of the top bar is changed manually. Examples are below:
From the community section, users may view the profile of others, access the Nexus Hub and use Nexus Groups. Nexus Groups are social groups where players can chat and share their interests. Each game on the Nexus has it's own official Nexus Group. RHE and Nexus news is also found on the Community tab.
The Rift Shop is an easy to use store where users may purchase games, movies, music, DLC and utility services. The Rift Shop is designed to be quick, easy and efficient, with simple navigation and quick searching.
Within the Rift Shop there is also the 'Time Machine', where users can buy older games from other consoles, thanks to the support of various other developers and publishers. A list of classic games can be found here. Please note that it is not a complete list of all the games available through Time Machine, only a list of popular games.
The Nexus Key is an addon for the Nexus that 'upgrades' the console completely. The Key is a small, USB like device that increases the speed, storage, and processing power of the Nexus. The Nexus Key is compatable with all Nexus games, but is not necessary to play anything, thought it is highly recommended for games which utilise CrowdS.
The Nexus launched on April 5th, 2017 with an initial 8 titles. These launch titles were Dominant Rage, Bay of Thieves, Ruby Tuesday, Wastelander: The Demon Trials, Descendant: Old Guns, Stix: Revamped, and Legend of Zelda: Gauntlet of Fates.
At launch the console could be bought with a copy of Wastelander: The Demon Trials, Bay of Thieves or Ruby Tuesday (and one controller). The 1TB version retails for $250 AUD, while the 2TB version was sold at retail for $300 AUD.

Standard Controller Variants
- The console was originally to be titled the Book of Revelations. But that's a mouthful.
- It got the name 'Nexus' because the console acts like a Nexus between different video game worlds.
