* The Revolution will be... tiny.

Gamecube/Nintendo
Nintendo's upcoming Revolution console, in addition to being backwards compatible with Gamecube titles (hooray!), will be really, really tiny.

About 1/3 the size of the Gamecube, it appears.

Oh, and more good news; it'll play DVDs this time around, a capability that the Gamecube was sorely lacking unless you lived in Japan and bought the really strange version from Panasonic.

According to Nintendo, the console will be "about the thickness of three standard DVD cases and only slightly longer", making it closer in size to Sony?s diminutive PlayStation 2 and considerably smaller than the Xbox 360.

In a welcome revelation, Nintendo's pint-sized powerhouse will not only have DVD-playback capability but also backwards compatibility (something Microsoft has been mysterious reticent about).

The company also reassured gamers of the Revolution's hardware strengths, saying the console "will be packed with power that will enable it to wow players with its graphics." Similar to Microsoft, Nintendo has partnered with ATi for its graphics card and IBM for the processor.
