    Doesn't look offical at all, looks like it's counting down to when that guy does his keynote thing.

    I'd say it's a safe bet that there is nothing official about it, but that doesn't mean it's not true.

    If it is... it's the most pathetic official I've ever seen. Those graphics really suck.

    i thought it looked a little off. the typeface is a bit strange. and the whole "can you handle it?" thing is a little cheesy.

    but. im not sure. maybe its a pretend-fake site set up by Nintendo? or associate.
    pretty sure the Confirmed Details bit is brand new too. as in not there when i posted the link.

    It's counting down to Tokyo Games Show which is where a lot of fans believe it will be.


    It's 100% unofficial. It's registered to an individual in france, NOT Nintendo.

    i think it's unofficial too...

    but just it's not registered to nintendo doesn't make it fake... there is a little thing called viral marketing. the issue is that this site isn't giving away anything interesting. at all. so it doen't appear to be inticing you or spreading "rumors" which would lead one to believe it's just a personal site.

    I'm trying to figure out where this urban legend comes from.

    From the site:
    Nintendo's press release says:

    http://www.nintendo.com/newsarticle?articleid=02ea1a40-ac09-4cdf-9548-91e5a4e78746&page=home

    As I understand this, it has 512 MB of flash BUILT IN, not slots for flash CARDS.

    and as for slots;

    It's slots for SD flash cards of any size, not 512 MB.


    Am I understanding this right? How come all these web sites are claiming that the memory cards are 512 MB, when in fact Nintendo said that it uses SD cards of any size and has 512 MB built in?

    Anyone who thinks that's official :eek: Even the title is enough. That font... does it look like a Nintendo font?

    thats the thing, it may look unofficial but there are rumours and echoed murmurs out there that say this has been started by NoE (the french thing gives it away, even though NoE's headquarters are in Germany).

    IF it was Nintendo, and they had announced it. it'd look all flashy and modern. they'd be accused of hyping it up. as of now its been reporters and non-nintendo accounts of how brilliant the Rev is. if it IS a flop then all this built up hype will be backfired against the original hypers, not Nintendo.

    they're playing it smart.

    ... or the site could just be a fan site :D

    Wow! If all I have to do to get noticed is create a blog about the Revolution, then I guess that is exactly what I will do.
