    My oldest boy wants one. By the looks of the cost - he better start a 401K, cause Dad ain't buying him one. He better start believing in Santa then.

    Revolution's controller is supposed to be aweosme, and confirmed wireless.

    The downloadable old games is an awesome feature IMO. Some n64 games that suffered from a poor framerate (GoldenEye, Perfect Dark) are even gonna have an advanced mode which allows for better graphics on the classics.

    So...total backward compatiblity = Amazing. Plus, online SMASH BROTHERS.

    Meh, I'm surprised Nintento hasn't gone software-only like Sega yet (I believe there were rumors that they were considering it a couple years ago). Their console sales have been atrocious (and with good reason imho). They just don't have the library to stay competative. Seriously, the last Nintendo system I owned was the SNES. These are the few games I'd actually be willing to pay for to play;

    N64

    Link games
    Mario Kart 64
    Smash Bros

    Gamecube

    Link games
    Mario Kart Double Dash
    Smash Bros

    Revolution

    Link games
    Mario Kart whatever
    Smash Bros

    Notice a pattern? Nintendo doesn't market very many games towards people in my age group (I'm 20) anymore. There certainly are other titles I'd be interested in playing, but they're available on other systems.

    The XBox is in a similar situation with me. They do market games for people like me, but they still don't have enough to get me to buy their system. I love playing Halo and Fable (and Jade Empire. I'm hoping it gets released for PCs soon) but other than that they really don't have anything to make it worth my money.

    The Playstation, on the other hand, has a huge library of games. I loves me the console RPGs, so there really is no competition between the Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft. I've given up on baseball games since High Heat died. The PS also has great stuff like the Metal Gear series.

    Honestly though, for the prices these consoles are starting at, I'll probably just stick with the new pretty high end computer I just built for around $900.

    Thanks Krono, I was thinking about getting a Revolution for my kids this Christmas.. From my limited knowledge, it seemed like a good young kids' game console (since it has all the old Nintendo games available).
    The wireless controllers are nice too, since there won't be any more wires for Dad to repair after extended use.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
