    Pre-E3 2005: Breaking: Revolution Details
    Sleek system to play standard DVDs, says Nintendo. More inside.
    by Matt Casamassina
    May 12, 2005 - The Electronics Entertainment Expo 2005 is still days away,
    but that hasn't stopped Microsoft from debuting its Xbox 360 console on MTV.
    And now Nintendo has followed suit, revealing some new meaty details about
    its next-generation console, codenamed Revolution.


    Nintendo of America's vice president of corporate affairs Perrin Kaplan
    describes the console as "very, very sleek." The system, which is reportedly
    tiny, will stand horizontally. Its width will reportedly be no more than
    three DVD cases stacked flatly on each other, or slightly more than an inch.
    Revolution will play standard DVD media this time around. No word yet if the
    console will be able to play DVD movies.

    It will also be able to play high-definition games and go online.

    More details to come at E3 2005. Stay tuned.

    Nice. It's good to see Nintendo doing everything they can to stay
    competitive. Hopefully these changes will do a lot of good for them in
    the next-gen console war.
