Nintendo Revolution - New Pics
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.
The 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.
