Nintendo Revolution To Launch Near 2006

“Our focus is this: we will bring Revolution to the marketplace roughly at the same time as the competition,” Fils-Aime told US website IGN. “We are driving our timetables based on what we believe Sony will do.”

While Nintendo may be watching Sony to work out when to jump on the next generation, the company is less sold on Microsoft’s approach. “Not that I want to ignore the Xbox,” Fils-Aime qualified, “but certainly we believe that a rush to a new system is a mistake.”

Nintendo continues to slam Microsoft’s rush to the console market. However sales figures will show that the Xbox is performing better than the Gamecube here in the U.S. This leads us to believe Nintendo might just be a little jealous with Microsoft’s quick success in this market.
