The successor of Nintendo’s Gamecube is currently being dubbed a
revolution. According to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, the next-gen
Nintendo console will be a ‘paradigm shift’, proving to be much more
innovative than even the DS. Several rumors floating around include
those which speak of being able to connect to a PC monitor, and
Valve’s Team Fortress 2 being added to the game line-up, just as it
might be added to the other next-gen consoles and the PC. Both those
rumors sound a little fishy, although it is confirmed that this
console will be able to play over 20 years of Nintendo Games. It is
unclear whether this will be accessed through purchasing them on a
disk or downloading through the new Internet-Accessible console (a bit
late there eh Nintendo?) but either way it is a treat for old school
gamers.

‘The concept behind our new console, tentatively named ‘Revolution,’
is the same as the DS. We want it to broaden the audience range, and
we don’t want it to be something that people will see as too
irrelevant to them, too difficult to use, or as something that wastes
space. It will most likely come out between this year [and] next year,
which is considered to be the transition period for home consoles,”
Iwata said, also noting that it will be released about the same time
as Sony and Microsoft’s efforts. This new console will also be more
geared towards women and older gamers, not the traditional gamer
audience although lately that has been the focus of many other game
organizations. I myself will be purchasing this console as I have been
a fan of Nintendo and their products my entire life, but I am very
tempted to stray off to the Xbox 360 as its graphics look oh-so-tasty.
I feel the competition from all three companies (Nintendo, Sony, and
Microsoft) will be very strong, but I sense Nintendo will be the
underdog like it was with the last generation of gaming consoles.
