Nintendo Now has an interesting feature on the Nintendo Revolution's marketing to date. It is all speculative, but very, very interesting.
Are we a little ahead of ourselves? Could Nintendo still pull the Revolution out of its hat? Is Nintendo playing mind games with us? ARE WE PLAYING THE REVOLUTION ALREADY!? Well... no, but the mind games might be true! Read all and comment thusly.

I'll admit it - this has intrigued me. I might just have to get online tomorrow and see whats happened. I don't think its true (I mean, they make a point about Aries predicting NES/SNES/N64 downloads, which is something even I've thought of before), but, uh, yeah. Its interesting.

Something interesting a friend of mine pointed out... it would be impossable for the type of disk drive in what they have shown us as the Revolution to take both standard size disks and the GCN's mini-disks.
Yes, probably, but look at the front of the Revolution... there's a small hatch beneath (or to the left in the standing shots) of the main disc slot. It looks about the right size to conceal a Gamecube disc slot... just like the hatch on the top that conceals the controller and memory card ports.

You're absolutely right Fryguy - my bad. There will very likely be unveiling of info over the coming 6 months before the year is out, as later information seemed to hint towards from the Nintendo peeps.
A well, when they're ready then they are ready...
Heck, at least we got Zelda, new DS games and a new GB! I'm pretty happy about that! ;D
