    Has Nintendo heard or "wireless" or are they saving it as an option. ;) :)

    It's a very clean design, and will look good sitting next to my other consoles. I'm really looking forward to this console, more so than any past Nintendo release.

    Dumb question... Every picture thus far shows the Rev as this strange geometric shape upright in this stand; does the Rev run on a sideways (ie. "normal") profile? I'd assume so.

    Told you it was a dumb question. :)

    look quite small to me.. each hole is perhaps half the size of one usb connector... that's perhaps 0,7 x 0.7 cm ... .. i'm actually concerned that it might not be enough ;)

    after some measurements and rough guessing it's ~12,25 square cm .. compared to the mac mini on my table which has 11,7 square cm outtake holes on the back

    I notice there's no RJ45 jack for wired ethernet :-/ There appear to be some funny-looking 'doors' on the top.

    yes, it is supposed to run perfectly "sideways."

    in any rate, where were those pictures taken?

    Yeah, I noticed that too.

    It's got WiFi standard and Nintendo might sell a USB-to-ethernet adapter (there are plenty on the market) but it'd be nicer if Ethernet was standard, I agree. But WiFi is more important to me than Ethernet.

    Hey, are they making them like this? 'Cause this is a hell of a lot sexier than the beige plastic linked up top!

    well that 'beige' is white in dark surroundings .. just an imac turns beige with less light ;) (SCNR)

    side note: the doors on the upper side reveal the gamecube controller + memory card ports

    personally i would have liked an ethernet additionally too since in my dorm it's not that far to the router like at home where i'm gonna use wireless... but it's still some time.. after all i guess it's still not final

    Five colors actually unless plans change.

    The white one in the back is the 'beige plastic' one at the top.

    Looks like it'll come in black, iPod white, platinum, Ferrarri Red, and Puke Green. Maybe Snot Green :p

    It should have 802.11x built-in to it. I believe a USB to RJ45 adapter was proposed too. The door at top is for the Gamecube controllers and memory cards.

    The 'doors' are where you put the old Gamecube controllers, for backwards compatibility like.

    Personally, to me at least, that is the single best looking games machine ever. It's just a huge slice of eye candy pie.

    I agree. I'm hoping they release all the details about it soon, and that it will be shipping sometime soon as long as there aren't any shipping problems.

    I just hope they will have WPA capability with the wireless on that thing. The WEP-only capability on the DS is annoying, since I tend to set my wireless networks up with WPA instead of WEP.

    I don't care how 'done' I'd get. I would have smashed into that glass case and run as fast as my dear legs would go. Just to say "I hugged and ran off with a Revolution".

    Maybe this is why I'm not allowed at E3 :rolleyes:
