I hope the system will work lying down rather than standing up, because I just think it'd look better than way. And I hate that stupid silver stand it has. It makes it look like the console was cut with some funky angles on it.
It's only "two to three" times faster than the Gamecube, whereas the 360 is 13-15 times faster than XBox and PS3 is roughly 35 times faster than PS3, but that doesn't really mean much. Games might be prettier, but are they as fun?
For as long as Nintendo has been around, they've made good games. They might not be on top of the "ohhh that looks so real and the physics are psnage!!ONE!", but Nintendo has plenty of classics that keep me going back such as Mario and Zelda.
Revolution does have some cool things going for it though.
"we do know that the system will house 512 MB of flash memory; a dual-format front-loading disc drive which handles both DVDs and GCN-format discs; wireless controllers; two USB 2.0 ports; and built-in Wi Fi support."
That is pretty cool, but the thing that really grabs my attention is this:
"the Revolution will give players access to Nintendo's back catalog of games. That's right: you'll be able to download classic titles for the Nintendo 64, Super NES, and original NES systems -- in addition to playing your library of GameCube titles."
All I can say is, if it works as good as it sounds, then HELL FUCKING YES. Also, free online play! WOOHOO!
I'm just looking forward to actual hardware specs.
And on a side note, Nintendo is making _another_ GBA. I wish they'd quit redesigning the GBA and make a new one already. (for those who are going to say "They did, it's called the DS." Nintendo had previously stated that the DS isn't a new GameBoy system.)
And on ANOTHER side note... mmmmm Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess ... *drool* I love it.
Yes, I sound like a fanboy. Oh well. I will be buying a PS3 and a Revolution. 360 can die. :) What the fuck is up with the PS3 controller?!
