  1. super smash brothers… if it’s not a launch release, i’ll be heartbroken.

  2. i’m looking forward to seeing an actual playable game. i really want to see them using the controller for real.

  3. actual gameplay with the controller, more information about backwardcompability, more info on that new feature, gameplay footage ofcourse (in-game especially), launch lineup, worldwide launchdates, DS connectivity with Rev, upcoming DS games, peripherals and so on. I can’t wait!

  4. i’m thinking i want them to show the accessaries you can attach to the controller and how you can use them.

    As a soccer fan, i’d love it if they make a soccer ball-like attachment and you put the controller somewhere inside the ball, then the game teaches you how to do tricks or special moves…etc.
    or it can train you, giving you a rating at the end of each training session…etc.

    there are a hell lot of things that nintendo and the other developers can do with the controllers.

    if they use its full potential, i don’t think anybody will want to play with the classic controller any more.

  5. Overall price. I wanna know what the price of the system will be, and also the price of downloads for older games…

  6. What “new feature”?

    This will be the best May 9th ever.

  7. New feature:

    “Eurogamer: Is the freehand-style controller your trump card, or have we got more exciting stuff to look forward to?

    Jim Merrick: Let’s just say we have more surprises in store.”


  8. I hope Nintendo does a Steve Jobs and tell: “Revolutions are shipping as we speak to retailers and will be available on your way out” That would rock the market! 6 months man…

  9. Didn’t SEGA do that with the Saturn and it failed?

  10. That was Sega.

  11. There’s more stuff to the Revolution, not a “new feature”. It’s prob a buncha things.

    Yea, a “One More Thing” for Nin would kick ass.


    Hum maybe some clever person ought to put a countdown somewhere on the blog!

    My hope is they’ll unreveal anything they haven’t unrevealed up to that point, under the assumption that they might release some other tibits before May. Also I hope they’ll change the colour tone of the green and red Revolution.

  13. I could use a countdown clock too.
