Nintendo could be Market Leader…Again

In a recent interview with, NOE’s Jim Merrick believes the Revolution controller “Certainly could make [Nintendo] a market leader.” That would make sense since he is a Nintendo employee, but that’s what a lot of people, even non-Nintendo people are saying.

Best one liners:

  • “Here we are, about to throw away 20 years of controller designs – designs which Nintendo came up with. There will be an influence on the industry, absolutely.”
  • “It works with LCDs, plasma screens, projectors… Everything. I guarantee it.”
  • “Put it this way. Without making a commitment, if I went to E3 2006 and didn’t end up playing the Revolution, I’d be very disappointed.”
  • Speaking about additional revolution information: “Let’s just say we have more surprises in store,” he said.

Nice words and can’t wait to see what else they will unveil. Are you concerned with Nintendo becoming a market leader again? I know a lot of you, including myself, would be happy so long as Nintendo keeps making great games. But market dominance could ensure that happens for many years to come, if not at a faster pace.
