Nintendo Revolution

Nintendo’s press conference is over, and we haven’t received that much information on the Revolution other than that the box the are showing off is a prototype, with the final product expected to be much smaller. Here is all I know:

  • Total Backwards Compatibility: Not only will the Revolution play standard Gamecube discs, but its owners will also have downloadable access to 20 years of their favorite Nintendo titles from the NES, SNES, and Nintendo 64 as well.
  • The specifications: The system boasts 512 megabytes of internal flash memory, wireless controllers, two USB 2.0 ports and built-in Wi-Fi access. A worldwide network of Nintendo players can gather to compete in a comfortable, inviting environment. Revolution’s technological heart, a processing chip developed with IBM and code-named “Broadway,” and a graphics chip set from ATI code-named “Hollywood,” will deliver game experiences not previously possible.
  • SD Card Expansion: A bay for an SD memory card will let players expand the internal flash memory.
  • Two disc formats, one slot: Instead of a tray, a single, innovative, self-loading media bay will play both 12-centimeter optical discs used for the new system as well as Nintendo GameCube discs. Owners will have the option of equipping a small, self-contained attachment to play movies and other DVD content.
  • Wireless Gaming Network: A number of Wi-Fi-enabled launch titles are in development that will employ Nintendo’s newly announced wireless gaming service, Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection. A worldwide network of Nintendo players can gather to compete in a comfortable, inviting environment.

Nintendo Nintendo’s next generation console, code named Revolution, will launch in mid 2006 according to an earnings report by the system’s memory technology provider. This information was obtained during an earnings call with executives and analyst.

”Then, according to a transcript of the call, Voll said, “We are excited to be a participating member of the Nintendo team once again, as Nintendo will roll out and success game console to the GameCube in mid-2006.” (Emphasis added.) Presuming that the transcriber misquoted Voll saying “a successor game console” as “and success console,” it means that Nintendo’s next-gen console will arrive just over a year from now.”

Nintendo Revolution Mid 2006 The word has slipped from Monolithic Systems that the Nintendo Revolution is slated to launch mid 2006.  Monolithic systems is a company providing RAM chips to go along with NEC’s memory for the Revolution.  The word slipped durring an earnings conference for the company.  There isn’t much known about the Revolution since Nintendo has been keeping all information locked in Mario’s basement along with the Virtual Boy.  All we really know is that ATI and IBM will be providing key hardware and that it will be backwards compatible with the Gamecube (Does anyone still play Gamecube?)  More information will be released at E3 next week for sure because Nintendo has finally stated that they will be discussing the Revolution there. Of course we will be there to bring you the information.

“Nintendo clearly does not want to be the last console maker to ship its next-gen system and as such the Revolution is likely to arrive around the same time as the PS3 if not sooner.”

E3 2005 That’s right, y’all. The 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo is right around the corner, and this one is going to be huge. The Xbox 360 will be there in full effect, and we will be there when Microsoft presents the console to the press. Nintendo will finally let the Revolution out of the bag, unless they choose to not show it for fear that competitors will steal their ideas. They will also be bringing Link and Zelda to the party. Last, but not least, Sony is set to show their PlayStation 3, powered by the almighty Cell processor. These are the obvious E3 attractions, but there will be many more things happening during those three days. We want to know what you guys want to see us cover while we are down at the big show. Game developers will be there in full force. Anything you are interested in seeing us cover? Let us know, and we will do our best to oblige.

Nintendo Revolution At E3 The E3 rumor mill has been buzzing quite loudly over the past few weeks. People are excited about what Microsoft is doing with the Xbox 2/360. People are curious about how Sony is going to use the PlayStation 3 to combat the hype machine that the next generation Xbox has been generating. And Nintendo…well…Nintendo has people buzzing for a different reason. We have been hearing that Nintendo may choose to play down the Revolution at E3 – and that is if they even choose to show it at all. Does it really matter if Nintendo shows the Revolution or not? Is Zelda enough for a successful show for Nintendo? The Playfeed editors take this issue to task in our Nintendo at E3 Roundtable.
