    Yes, absolutely. Because every game on a nintendo console magically transmogrifies into a children's game with butterflies and lollipops and cotton candy.

    Seriously, that's pure BS and I'm sick of it already. The revolution's controller isn't a children's toy or a gimmick, but an example of something called innovativeness. You know, like not making the same thing every three years?

    For a Rev-Freaks.

    More Revolution Specs Uncovered
    Developers come forward to reveal new performance details on Nintendo's next-generation console.
    by Matt Casamassina

    December 6, 2005 - Just yesterday IGN Revolution launched with technical details on Nintendo's next-generation console, codenamed Revolution. And today more development sources have come forward with both clarification and even more tech specs. The latest news begins to paint a clearer picture of Nintendo's aim with its next platform.

    We cannot stress this enough: Revolution is not being positioned as a competitor to either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. Nintendo has instead chosen to design a console that will be very affordable for consumers. For that very reason, say developers in the know, the Big N has opted out of filling the system with a massive supply of expensive RAM.


    In yesterday's article, we wrote that Revolution would include 128MBs of RAM, or possibly less. Developers have clarified the makeup based on officially released Nintendo documentation. Revolution will build on GameCube's configuration of 24MBs 1T-SRAM and 16MBs D-RAM (40MBs) by adding an addition 64MBs of 1T-SRAM. The result is a supply of memory in Revolution that totals 104MBs. That number does not consider either the 512MBs of allegedly accessible (but hardly ideal) Flash RAM or the Hollywood GPU's on-board memory, said to be 3MBs by sources.

    Revolution's Broadway CPU, developed by IBM, is an extension of the Gekko CPU in GameCube, according to official Nintendo documentation passed to us by software houses. The Hollywood GPU, meanwhile, is believed to be an extension of the Flipper GPU in GameCube. Since developers have not gone hands-on with the GPU, they can only go on Nintendo documentation, which is limited.

    Exact clock rates were not disclosed, but one development source we spoke to had this to say of the Revolution CPU and GPU: "Basically, take a GameCube, double the clock rate of the CPU and GPU and you're done."

    We presented that description to another informed studio, which clarified that the clock rates may even fall short of doubling those on GameCube.

    "The CPU is the same as Gekko with one and a half to two times the performance and improved caching," said a source. "Our guys experimented with it and think they'll be able to get about twice the performance as GameCube."

    "It's a gamble for the Big N," said another source. "It's not about horsepower for them -- it's about innovation and gameplay."

    We've also been able to unearth firm details on the storage capacity for Revolution discs. Recent rumors suggesting that the discs can hold 12GBs of data are false. In fact, Revolution discs can store 4.7GBs of data on a single layer or 8.5GBs when double-layered on a single-side. This is a massive jump from the 1.5GB capacity of GameCube discs and more than enough storage capacity for any non-high-definition game.

    Readers discouraged by Revolution's seeming lack of horsepower when compared to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 should remember that Nintendo is not interested in competing in the high-definition gaming arena, and as a standard-definition console, Revolution is more than capable. Capcom's Resident Evil 4 remains one of the most gorgeous games this generation and it ran on GameCube, a console at least half as powerful according to developer reports.

    Software houses we spoke with also waxed on the immediate advantage to Nintendo's approach with Revolution, which is, of course, system price. Every developer was in agreement that Revolution should launch with a price tag of $149 or lower. Some speculated that based on the tech, a $99 price point would not be out of the question.

    Stay tuned for more as it develops.
    From ign.

    As you can see, even the ppl at nintendo know they can't match up to sony and microsoft. They should stop making console period and only focus on game
    Some how I'm unbanned.... Yay!

    But my wonderful waterfall sig is gone!!! Do you have any idea how much time I spent on it!!!

    Even Nintendo? stop this fanboyism crap, its still a gossip.

    Nintendo is a bigger company then you think, they wouldnīt have problems to built something equal to Microsoft and Sony. They have got money and competence.

    Of course they choose to go another way with their revolution, but they havenīt been forced to so by Microsoft nor Sony, they just decided its the best decision, so before bithing them, we should wait for more details and play games at least.

    some speculative specs have been "released" decent rumors suggesting that the system will only have 128 megs of RAM (with optional use of 512MBs of flash) and will be up to 3 times as powerful as the cube.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    only 3 times as powerful huh? lame.
    Comparing those specs to the ps3 and 360.. rev don't even come near it. All they got are they're fanboys and gimmicks. They don't even have HD.

    Saying that doesn't mean they aren't competing in the games market. That's a whole lot better than what Sony and MS is doing. They are acting all petty and saying the PS3 sucks, the Xbox360 isn't next gen enough. Blah blah blah. Petty companies

    The very fact is that the rev pale in conparsion to teh ps3 and 360, Hardware wise. Nintendo goals nowadays is to focus on contents instead. But to me nowaday, i find nintendo games to pale in conparsion to Sony's. There wasn't enough game for the cube for me to even bother buying the system. (And don't say I never play any games, cause my dormroom neighbor got it, with all the typical popluar games for it) In the end, nothing nintendo make was of any real worth. If they really so focus on content, then they should just make game for other system, cause if they do they, they can take advatage to the superior firepower of PS3&360.

    I disagree, I didn't buy a gamecube or an xbox, but I regret not buying the gamecube, there are games I've played on it that are worth the 80 bucks for the system. I am waiting for the revolution then buying the gamecube games for it.

    Sorry but this is bullshit, the whole 3 times as powerful as the NGC is bullshit and was a lie by a certain uk mag...
