Nintendo?s Subtle RevolutionFri, May 27, 2005 - 9:57 PM
Nintendo, the quiet “Revolution!” Compared to the loud buzz surrounding the Xbox 360 and PS3 that’s certainly apropos, but this Revolution comes in a sleek package and an enticing “All-Access Gaming” concept offer.
“Our next console proves small in size but big on ideas,” says Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales & marketing, referring to Revolution, which has the thickness of three DVD cases, stacked together.
Nintendo is banking on a concept they’re calling “All-Access Gaming,” the key concept being the 20 years worth of downloadable Nintendo-all the way back to Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out. And even better, they’re thinking of offering the old games for free.
