Nintendo's Compact Console Will Turn the World of Gaming on Its Side
Each generation of video game consoles builds on the past to set new standards for the future. As the company with the strongest heritage of innovation, Nintendo redefines expectations for all next-gen systems by employing a wide-ranging strategy to attract more kinds of gamers to more kinds of games. When Nintendoís new console, code-named Revolution, arrives in 2006, everyone will discover the meaning of All-Access Gaming.
Easy expansion: A bay for an SD memory card will let players expand the internal flash memory.
Two disc formats, one slot: Instead of a tray, a single, innovative, self-loading media bay will play both 12-centimeter optical discs used for the new system as well as Nintendo GameCube discs. Owners will have the option of equipping a small, self-contained attachment to play movies and other DVD content.
The specs: The system boasts 512 megabytes of internal flash memory, wireless controllers, two USB 2.0 ports and built-in Wi-Fi access. A worldwide network of Nintendo players can gather to compete in a comfortable, inviting environment. Revolutionís technological heart, a processing chip developed with IBM and code-named "Broadway," and a graphics chip set from ATI code-named "Hollywood," will deliver game experiences not previously possible.

They MUST be holding something back because play old NES games is great but hardly revolutionary. Unless a company is offering entire game library for free...legally is revolutionary?

Man if they make the entire NES and SNES library available, or someone works out a way to play the existing dumped ROMs on this console, I'll snatch it up in a heartbeat. To play NES and SNES games in their original glory would be awesome. The current emulators for these systems are good (save for N64 emulation), but they're still not quite the original.
