Re: Revolution Information

Man, the Revolution is so small but has so many capabilities. It's like some kind of alien technology. j/k

The whole NES, SNES, N64 download thing is what really excites me. Also, hooking it up to my gorgeous computer display... the Revolution is gonna pwn guaranteed. Micro$ shouldn't even bother. Anything the 360 has, the Revolution and PS3 will have, and more.

Re: Revolution Information

So it looks like the Revolution took a page from the PSP's book and decided to use SD Cards for memory cards. And of course, I too, am excited about the old games option. Hopefully those classic few greats that Nintendo refused to rerelease in the US will finally get some lovin'. (IE: Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, Super Metroid, (maybe Metroid II even) etc.

Re: Revolution Information

Looks damn spiffy. Damn spiffy indeed. The only thing I could ask for is more than two memory card slots.

Re: Revolution Information

Ah the revolution.. Now we are back to an era where if you smash/kick/massacre your nintendo product it will indeed die. That was deffanatly one of the strong points about the game cube.

I find it's safer (cost-wise) to bash controllers, rather than the console.

Yes, I like the look of the PS3 better, especially in black. The controller looks weird, but it's only changed a little from the Dual Shock, which I love. The Revolution looks pretty cool as well, but it certainly doesn't look like a Nintendo product, either.

Re: Revolution Information

I love the design of the Revolution. It's small, sleek, and simple. This is definitely my favorite console design of all time.

I hope there is a hard drive included. I'm sure it would take quite a bit of memory to download N64 games (SNES and NES games are fairly small).

Re: Revolution Information

N64 games arent that big. The collectors edition Zelda Disk had LoZ, AoL, OoT, MM and a 20 minute WW demo. So if all that could fit an a Gamecube Disk. I dont think the Revolution is gonna have any problems with space.

I'm upset that Nintendo never really went through with the SD support for the GameCube via an official adapter. It only works on very few games (well only one that I know of). PS2 could brag about their 8MB mermory cards (bytes not bits) which held so much more than the junk Nintendo put out. Having SD cards would have been awesome, easily allowing for 64MB+ capacity. Granted neither would have been as good as XBox's hard drive.

The "mere" 512MB of flash ram is good for plent of saves and even a few NES/SNES games, but it still is no hard drive. I'd hope we could at least get the option of purchasing one as an add on...

That was pre-E3 conference stuff, we might see more, we might not. After rumors that Nintendo might have stayed away from revealing anything during E3 I'm glad we have as much info as we do.

Re: Revolution Information

Controllers are wireless righr? And it seems to have memory card slots and controler jacks of a GC, so maybe only these pre revolution games can be played using the GC controller.

Re: Revolution Information

They havent really showed us THAT much about revolution... Yet.. The big thing they are obviously hiding for now is the controller. They would not keep the controller out and just show Revolution without purpose. They will more than likely show it as late as possible if it is that big of a difference. Nintendo wants to end E3 on a good note.

Re: Revolution Information

I really hope we get to see some more information on Revolution before the end of E3. Even if it's just some video footage of games running on it. Obviously, I'd love to see the controller but I don't think Nintendo is going to reveal that for a long time.

PS3 comes out in March next year, right? Correct me if I'm wrong. Nintendo said they aim to have their console out at the same time as Sony, so they can't possibly wait until next year's E3 to reveal what's so revolutionary about the darn thing. They'll have to spill the beans soon.

Re: Revolution Information

Are you guys sure the Revolution will have free online gaming, bacause that sounds to good to be true. So does the downloading the classic Nintendo games thing it seems like something like that would have a fee of some sort.

Re: Revolution Information

For first party games at least, Revolution will be free online gaming. Third parties may choose to put a fee for their games. As for downloadable games from eras gone by, I'm not sure if that costs or not. I'd be willing to say there'd be a fee involved there.

Re: Revolution Information

watch the press conference...correct me if im wrong (hey im only 99.9% sure on this) but they said that it would be FREE to have the wi-fi wireless and download the nintendo library of games from nes, snes, and n64 games it does sound like something too good to be true, but nintendo realizes that people are downloading hacked roms off the net anyway for those systems...make it official and they have a new enticing feature that noone else has: classics...one thing i still wonder about, ds has wireless and the revolution will have wireless, can you possibly wirelessly hook em together? ds is much better than GBA so its possible it could be fairly well used (when done right...tingle STANK)

Re: Revolution Information

My guess is that DS will use the Revolution as a Wi-Fi hotspot to get online. I'm not sure how other connecting features would work. I doubt Nintendo would got down the same road after the whole GBA connectivity thing failed. Although, Crystal Chronicles is in the works for Revolution...so, who knows?

EDIT: Oh, yeah, I saw the Press conference video just a while ago on www.cube-europe.com and they didn't mention if the downloading classics would be free or not. They did say online gaming would be free, however.
