E3 - Revolution

The Revolution!The Revolution is here! As Satoru Iwata, the President of Nintendo said, "the Revolution is by far the smallest console we have manufactured. In its final form, it will be even smaller than this, about the size of 3 DVD cases stacked together. It will play either horizontally or vertically.” There will be wireless controllers (which they said they would go into more detail later), and the ability to play both DVDs and GCN games. Everyone is jumping on the wireless bandwagon. Also, some wifi support, as touched on at GDC.

Also, very suprisingly, they announced that the Revolution will allow gamers to play any games from any Nintendo system. The details of how, however, remain absent. But being able to play all of the Metroid games, (or Zelda games or Mario games or...) would be cool. You would be able to play each one in a series, and live the story line, game by game (But that would also be over-rated. There generally isn't much inter-game storyline.).

Also, a bunch of games were shown, including the upcoming Link game, "The Legend of Zelda, Twilight Princess." Bit of a weird title, eh?
