Default Nintendo Revolution

I found an article about the new nintendo system on nintendo.com



Nintendo, the world leader in video game innovation, stated loud and clear that they are not to be overlooked in the next generation home console race with the revelation of several unique features of the company's next console system, code name Revolution, to key media outlets. According to the early information, Revolution will combine powerful technology and gaming-focused features in Nintendo's smallest home game console yet.



In its final form, Revolution will be about the thickness of three standard DVD cases and only slightly longer. The versatile Revolution will play either horizontally or vertically, allowing the user total flexibility in setting up a gaming session wherever they have a television.



Thanks to Nintendo's hardware development partners IBM and ATI, the small system will be packed with power that will enable it to wow players with its graphics. Nintendo's legions of loyal fans will be happy to learn that Revolution will be backward compatible, playing both Nintendo GameCube 8cm disks along with its own 12cm optical disks in the same self-loading media drive.



In the next generation, the addition of the Internet will be important to all consoles and particularly important to Nintendo. Revolution will be wireless Internet ready out of the box.



There's much more to Revolution that will be revealed over the coming months, but the combination of its compact size, wireless Internet, backward compatibility, quick start-up time and quiet, low-power operation add up to the start of a great game system. Get ready for the Nintendo Revolution in 2006!

great move on Nintendo's part to use full size discs and the Internet. it's good to be unique, but it shouldn't hold the system back like the gamecube. i hope the revolution is a good seller

Hmmmm...Nintendo claims to be the worlds leading video game innovater, but that is a total falsehood:
1. Backwards compatibilty was first done with PS2, which play PS2 and PSX games.
2. Horizontal and vertical stand. Also done by PS2.
3. Sony is currently the dominating force in the video game industry.
The only original thing they did is the DS, but that doesn't count because it sucks.

Actually, it's kinda funny...Playstation was originally a co-op project between Nintendo and Sony. If only Nintendo realized how big of a success it would've been BEFORE they pulled out.
Hehehehe...

Nintendo has kept their lips sealed pretty well. No leaks that I've heard of, so far.

EDIT:

Oh yeah, they present at e3 first thing tomorrow morning, so I'm sure we'll get a glimpse at it then.

EDIT:

Well.. I guess it's technically *this* morning ;)

I seriously doubt that this is a real pic, but...
These are supposed controllers for the Revolution, one for each hand. Thats really, really weird. It'd be kinda neat though...for people who jerk around and get into their games, this might be the greatest controller ever.
But I still think it's fake.

they sure have given a lot of hype to this "revolution of gaming"
a lot of people (like me) are expecting something very innovative
i hope whatever they are doing can live up to it

also, here's a video that was floating around a few days ago (we know for sure that it is a fake now)....pretty cool in my opinion

edit: hehe, looks like they got their share of bandwidth use this month :P you can still see the video here

I thionk that nintendo Revolution and Xbox 360 will sell better than PS3 beacus eof these reasons
1. all PLaystations and their games are similar
2. the PS3 controls look uncomfterbul and confusing
3. the PS3 is ugly and looks is a big part in the market
4. the XBox 360 and Revolution waited fro a big event to reveal it self creating more hype but the PS3 has just been floating around

So for these 4 reasons and many more the PS3 will be the worst selling in the next generation of gaming consoles adn Nintendo and microsoft will be the best mainly nintendo the best

anyway...

I read an article in my newspaper that you would be able to download the older nintendo games (the NES, SNES, and N64 games are going to be up for downloading) and play them on the revolution. And by the way Ryu, the ps2 wasn't the first game system to be backwards compatible. That would be the Game Boy Color in 1998. and whalnut, they have unveiled the Game boy Micro. that will be the first game boy that no one will care about unless the big n cancels it and brings out a REAL game boy. like a all new one.


on a different note, who else can name systems that were backward compatible? it only counts if it predates the GBC.

Oh, you're right. GBC was before PS2.
Silly me.

I can think of one before that, another Nintendo thing. I don't know what it's called, but it was an expansion for the original NES, sorta. It allowed you to save any game you played, improved the graphics drive on the NES, and allowed it to play new games that they made.
But then Sega came out with Genesis. Nintendo canceled the expansion project and released SNES instead. The expansion thing is very, very rare, and considered a collector's item.
So, I don't know if that counts as backwards compatibilty, but it's a nice random bit of trivia none the less.

To Wahlum: I don't know about any new Game Boys...you may have heard of the "Portable Gamecube" though, or something like that. There is a random guy who is good with machines, and makes portable versions of home consoles for himself.
