Nintendo Revolution - New Pics

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Nintendo's Japanese website has some new pics of the Nintendo Revolution that show off some interesting features. In the picture above you'll see a number of different colors for the console. The video game industry, and Nintendo in particular, is renowned for offering a variety of colors/special editions in Japan that never see the light of day here. However, as all of Nintendo's current gen systems (both handheld and console) have been available in a variety of colors, and as Sony showcased 3 colors of PS3, and since the XBox 360 will be offering changeable faceplates (eww), it seems quite likely that Revolution owners outside of Japan will offer a number of color options at launch.


Image hosted by Photobucket.comThe second pic is a little more peculiar. Nintendo has already confirmed that the system will have wireless controllers (even though they won't let the big secret about what they look like out of the bag), and yet we see four controller ports. These are identical to Gamecube controller ports, so it seems likely that these may be for those looking forward to the systems backwards compatability. It also shows slots for two Gamecube memory cards - which I assume would also be to support the systems backwards compatability.

  • Things are starting to look better for nintendos underdog. I think that the revolution is the best looking console , considering that the ps3 has a hump.

  • anyone ever think that nintendo is just pulling a fast one on us, and this is just a remodeled gamecube. maybe they said its there next system just to shut the people up?

  • From what I've seen, I'm buying a Revolution along with a 360. The whole game archive thing is interesting me :P

  • those slots look a little too big to me for gamecube memory cards. Looks a little more like they could be SNES controller ports, adding to the backwards compatitbility.

  • The ports are most likely for charging. I doubt that the controllers will be backwards comptable.

  • Umm...those pictures are REALLY old. Like a couple days after E3 old. And, you woulnd't need SNES controllers AND GCN controllers...you would just use the GCN ones for everything except Revolution games.

    Oh...and the Revoluition is only a prototype. The DVD/disc drive doesn't even function. WHich leads me to think there is nothing really in it other then a couples weights.

    But I still cant WAIT to find out what its going to be able to do!

  • Since Nintendo hasn't shown what a game on the Revolution looks like, and since they haven't shown the controller I think that Nintendo has something really 'revolutionary' up their sleeves.
    Stereoscopic 3D maybe?

  • You're behind the curve, IGN had both of these pictures up on their website during E3, and they've already addressed the ports shown in the second picture. Those are indeed for GCN controllers and memory cards.

    The controllers for the Revolution are wireless.

  • the ports are the real ports for controllers because they did say that all controllers are wireless.

  • If this guy is so behind the curve then why did this make fron page on digg? idiot.

  • If u look at the second pic, between the power and reset buttons there is a door lookinf part. Maybe there are wireless channel changers under there.

    Can't wait...

  • the nintendo revolution looks like a piece of $hit. nintendo is goin out of business because xbox 360 is kickin their a$$. those colors of the "revolution" suck. only little six year olds will think this thing is the bomb when they are missin out on the XBOX 360 or PLAYSTATION 3. nintendo has gone down hill.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:20 PM  

  • Man i can't believe you guys think this thing rocks, i think the gamecube looks better. If u guys were real gamers you would pick the Xbox 360 over the Nintendo Revolution and PS3. Nintendo isn't even competition to Sony or Microsoft. And the Xbox 360 runs on a 3 core system and the PS3 only has one. So that makes the Revolution a piece of crap.

  • I have had e-mails asking me about how it works ?

    Please vist http://www.bestbidsauction.com

    Here are a few parts of our Q&A.

    Q2. How does Best Bids Auction Work?

    A2. Best Bids Auction is a unique fresh way to win items at auction for a fraction of the retail value. The winner of each auction is not necessarily the highest bidder, but the highest Unique bidder (no one else has bid the same amount) The maximum amount anyone can bid in an auction is the Best Bids Auction max price, which is set for each auction.

    Q3. What process is involved to make a winning bid?

    A3. After joining Best Bids Auction, members select the item they wish to bid on and place a valid bid that cannot exceed the displayed Best Bids Auction max price.

    Members may bid as often as they wish on available items. Each valid bid will be documented in the My Account part of our website.

    A bid fee will be charged for each valid bid. The bid fees are determined item by item.
    Bid fees for each item are displayed with each auctioned item on the Best Bids Auction website. Each auction has a limited quantity of valid bids allowed.

    The auction will successfully close upon receipt of the required quantity of valid bids or when closing date has been reached. All auctions have a scheduled time of closing.(Note - auctions may be closed/withdrawn at Best Bids Auction discretion without notice, any auction withdrawn will have all bids received credited back to bidder accounts)

    The number of valid bids allowed or remaining available is displayed with each item. The Bidder that submitted the highest unique valid bid will win the product. In the event that an auction has no unique valid bid, the Bidder that first submitted the highest non-unique valid bid will win the product.

    The successful Bidder will receive a notification email directing them to confirm their order within five business days. The auctioned item will be processed and shipped to the address on record for the successful Bidder.


    Q4. How much does it cost to bid?

    A4. For each auction there is a Bid fee amount, each single bid fee costs $8.88 to purchase, and a discount is given on purchases of multiple bid fees."NOTE" Buying multiple bid fees offers members a discounted cost per bid! Below is the fees details:
    $8.88 = 1 Bid Fee
    $25.00 = 3 Bid Fees
    $40.00 = 5 Bid Fees
