Say it ain’t so…

Someone please tell me that the Revolution Logo Nintendo revealed at E3 was a prototype. This thing looks cheesy, thrown together, and cliche. I mean c’mon, a circular disc to symbolize a revolution?

Can I get a witness?


  1. yeah, this is an absolutely horrible logo. I don’t think this will be the real deal though. But on the revolution case itself it had this logo on it. The discs are supposed to represent the size discs it takes. The big one for standard rev discs and the smaller for the gamecube backward compatibility disc. But regardless, this logo is god awful, I would be completely shocked if this were the final version. I’m glad someone else mentioned it because it’s been bugging me since the day I saw it. IF it happens to be the final logo there should be a petition because all of us will have to see it for the next 4-5 years during its life cycle.

  2. It looks like some intern went to town with MS Paint or something. And what is that font? MS Comic Sans?

  3. Oh come on guys isn’t this superficial? I mean yeah the gamecube looks like a toy and yeah that Revolution logo looks cheesy but if the games and the system kick butt who cares if they spell revolution with dog turds. I’d still buy it. lol

  4. It just lacks imagination is all. Even the name Revolution sounds weak. I’m really looking forward to the console, but “Revolution”? Yeah, that’s never been used by anyone before!

    Personally I couldn’t care less what the thing’s really called, or what the logo looks like, it’s just going to be another black box under my telly.

    I’m more concerned with the quality of the software and the ergonomics and ease of use of the controller. The console shell is really not all that important to me.

  5. I don’t think the logo is bad. Not good, either. Beats the hell out of the PS3 spider-logo.

  6. Am I the only one who thinks it’s not too bad ?!? 😀
    But I think this is an E3 only logo, because they released the backwards compatiblity thing at E3 and the logo fits that……

  7. What?!? I like the logo. I like it WAY more than the mock-uped fan logos that I’ve seen. I don’t think the logo is bad at all. In fact, I think simplicity goes a long way these days. Look at how simple the Nintendo logo is.

    Oh, and I really like the name Revolution too.

  8. I just want it to say “Nintendo” somewhere, so then I know it’s the best system out there..

  9. I agree the logo doesn’t look innovative or fresh…. lets hope its not the final… There is still time for changes… I would design a few for nintendo free of charge.

  10. Since the first Rev we saw was not the final look, i believe their going to change the logo when the Final look turns out
