* Nintendo dodges Sony

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
It looks like Nintendo's decided not to compete directly with Sony after all - the launch of Revolution may wait a couple months for PS3 hype to die down before it hits stores.

Until today, Nintendo has said only that the Revolution will be released in 2006 in North America, without specifying any date. Iwata's comments indicate that the console could appear after the launch of Sony's PlayStation 3, which is currently slated for a spring 2006 launch in the US. Microsoft's Xbox 360 will arrive on store shelves during the 2005 holiday season worldwide.
In all honesty, launching later could really hurt, or really help, Nintendo.

I'd suggest they go with figuring out whether the two-month delay gives them a stronger package of launch-title GAMES. Launching with a Mario, Zelda, and at least one other franchise title would be a big boost for the system.
