Nintendo Revolution is a Virtual Game Console
 
 

We reported life during the Nintendo E3 presentation about the Nintendo Revolution. Now the online traffic jam has settled and we can take a look how much Nintendo really revealed about their next generation game console.

The Nintendo Revolution console (target="_blank">hi-res photo) is backward compatible with the GameCube and will have downloadable access to 20 years of games originally released for Nintendo 64, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and even the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).

Nintendo is showing a prototype casing at the E3 2005 show. The final design is not set yet. A SD memory slot enables consumers to expand the 512MB internal memory of the system. The self-loading media bay supports the smaller GameCube discs and the new 12cm optical discs for the Revolution. An optional attachment is supposedly enabling DVD movie playback.

Besides that the Nintendo Revolution has 512MB RAM, wireless controllers, 2 USB 2.0 ports, Wi-Fi nothing was revealed about the specifications. The CPU is from IBM and has the codename Broadway. The GPU is from ATI and is code-named Hollywood.

The Nintendo Revolution arrives somewhen in 2006.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
