Gryph Posted March 10, 2005 Share Posted March 10, 2005 Alright, here are some of the points made by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata. http://www.ve3d.com[/url'>']During the hour-long event Iwata revealed that the Revolution will come equipped with wireless Internet out of the box, and be backwards compatible with GameCube titles, suggesting a continuation of their proprietary media format. With regards to the Nintendo DS, Iwata announced that subscription-free wireless Internet play will begin this year with the release of Animal Crossing DS. Complete with 'Broadway' IBM CPU and 'Hollywood' ATI GPU, Iwata made clear that Revolution is something different, but declined to reveal further information, or a projected release date. Update: Other bits from the keynote: * DS titles using voice recognition were demonstrated. Nintendogs tasks players with nurturing a pooch of choice, while Electroplankton is a harmonic chill-out title (This is designed to produce harmony, not adrenaline - Iwata). * Iwata dabbled in a live eight-player wireless local network game of Mario Kart DS. * 4 million DS units have shipped to North America and Japan; figure expected to rise to 6 million post-European launch. * Iwata defined Nintendo's strategy: "This is Nintendo's plan: make our existing game world better. For us, this is a passion. This is a mission of adventure."available.
