With everyone talking about the "XBox 400" and it's high price plan, I've been thinking that maybe the Nintendo Revolution has a fighting chance in the next round. I know this is an SX board, but recently the big N is becoming the next-gen Sega. While supposed not nearly as powerful as the Xbox360 or the PS3, the revolution is reported to be sold under the 200 dollar mark. Also, while it won't support all the high-def standards (only 480p), it won't really matter much for the next couple of years, because I don't really think the HD market has really penetrated consumers that much. How many people are willing to dish out a few thousand on a HDTV they could get for a couple hundred non-HD? In terms of game quality, Nintendo seems to be one of the last bastions that focus to some degree on innovative gameplay, even to its detriment. While everyone else is crying "720p!" Nintendo is experimenting with new controllers and interesting game design. Just yesterday I picked up "Geist" for the cube and honestly while the shooters mechanics are piss, the ghost-play elements are intriguing and original. "Killer7" is a really freaking esoteric game, one that pushes style and proclaims it to be substance, and though it's also on the PS2, it's really meant for the Cube. I don't really see games like these on the Xbox or PS2. While the culture of risk-aversion reigns in the gaming industry, Nintendo is definitely taking a different route. Side note: Does Killer7 remind anyone else of those freaky-deaky Dreamcast and Saturn games like "Enemy Zero" and "D2?"
