View Full Version : Naming Revolution

The names of consoles really haven't been very... well... good for a long time now. We all hear "PlayStation" and "GameCube" and "Xbox" and wierd crap like that which is like "What the hell? A station a cube and a box?" O.o

But the "Nintendo Revolution"... it may be a codename but it DOES sound cool. Even though I know that chances are next to nothing, I think Nintendo should KEEP the "Nintendo Revolution" name. It's worth keeping! If Nintendo are serious about this revolutionary stance they have, they should keep the name that defines the system.

So what do you guys think?


One more thing, this isn't a debate over which console/company is better or any crap like that. If you want to discuss that sort of thing then start a new thread.

My vote is for Super DUPER Nintedo.



I dunno if I like the Nintendo Revolution name yet or not. I guess it depends on how revolutionary it turns out to be so I guess I'll reserve judgement on the name until then. :D

I sort of agree with Revan Solo's first post, it does remind me of Matrix, and that might not blow over well with the population. But I do think it is a good name and it would be cool if they kept it.

But, i'm more curious about the revolutionary part.

And that is what someone who doesn't know what they're talking about steps up and tries to sound smart says about Nintendo.

Nintendo's last two consoles have been in trouble because of the simple fact that it lacks good third party support. Nintendo relies too much on their core franchises and the GCN's minidisk was another disadvantage. When your media is smaller than that of your competitors it's not a good thing, yes you prevent piracy but you also lose more possible games. There are reasons why Nintendo has been failing lately and it's not because "they're for kids." Pokemon, while none of you like it and give crap to anyone who thinks otherwise makes a HELL OF A LOT of money for Nintendo. Who cares that it's Pokemon, the fact that one franchise aimed at children makes so much money is what gives it worth. All Nintendo needs to do is recapture that third party market. The way to do that is do exactly what Sony and Microsoft are doing with their consoles. The advantage is having your own exclusive franchises. First step, get those third party developers in and make sure the games they create and disadvantaged from the other two brands and THEN get all your exclusive stuff out there.

It's not a matter of "Nintendo is for kids" that a bull**** excuse for anyone.

Another point that I think is greatly overlooked when it comes to Nintendo, is the multi-player aspect of their games.

why do you nintendo fans get *so upset* when someone says its a kids machine :p :(

However, all jokes aside, Im sure that if we could track down some sales/demographics data , the GC is inevitable more likely to have snared much more of the younger market, and this is purely by design on the part of nintendo, not a fiendish plan by game devs to make the GC a kids toy...

Nintendo seem to have a wonderful propensity to isolate themselves from the rest of the market, by coming up with consoles and formats that arent accessible or viable for certain game Co.s

I have a GC meself, play Rogue Squadron 2and 3, and Final Fantasy only...waiting for Zelda of course :D

Lets hope the aptly titled "Revolution" will be exactly that, a new way of thiking to make their next console a stronger contributor to gaming/multimedia etc....

I have been a loyal nintindo fan since the NES. then i got SNES then N64. then I switched to PC. now I think I should get a console of the next generation since THIS generation is halfway over anyway.

BTW: nintindo revolution DOES need somthing revolutionary, like cheap online play, or PC connectivity. or multi tvs connection so each player can veiw with their own TV.

02-11-2005, 05:50 PM
If its not revolutionary, it won't sell. And if it is, like I have read else-where... there are two possibilities. It will be the next big thing (like 3D games with mario 64) or it will be so extreme that it just won't work out. You know, like its too far ahead of its time, and people aren't ready for it.

Unless they do something stupid, I'll probably buy it.

@ Astrotoy7: We already know that, it's the stereotype that has been placed on Nintendo. Sega would be given the same stereotype if they were "alive" right now the way they were in the past. Remember their mascot was an animated Hedgehog... It's the fact that in recent years technology has risen from simple pixels to polygons and particle effects. All that was once seen as games that anyone can play has now turned into "kiddy games." Some games can transfer over well and seem adult or NOT kiddy. Others need to stay with their certain style but when you transfer over their style they look a hellova lot more childish than they really should look.

Remember, Nintendo are committed to making "Games for Everyone" while Sony and Microsoft target older gamers with more violent games and such and hoping to capture those leet players who thought they owned the world (and they did lol). Yeah, the problem is that the games targetted for a younger or more general audience are more dominant on a Nintendo system. This can be blamed for Nintendo alienating all of those third party developers which is the KEY to getting them back on track. Those three things, third party developers, more unique exclusive adult oriented content and online play.

Nintendo seem to have a wonderful propensity to isolate themselves from the rest of the market, by coming up with consoles and formats that arent accessible or viable for certain game Co.s

They're so trying to break from that as well as their kiddy image in the last two years... and yeah I hate how Nintendo has put themselves into that position.

@ lukeskywalker1: Actually the problem is that if it IS revolutionary it still won't sell. Gamers today would rather flashy graphics and violence than some form of new gameplay.

Its a little late to join up with 3rd party devs now. But this is the reason they are making that new zelda, because everyone was mad about windwaker. They said it was kiddy (I have to admit, it was easy, but still an excellant game). I mean, when you go from what was seen at spaceworld 2000 (super realistic sword fight between ganondorf and link) to windwaker (cell chaded link with big head...) your kinda disapointed.

It's too late for this generation but not too late for the next generation.

With The Wind Waker, I didn't like it cause it was too short, the graphics were bloody brilliant though @.@ So much style, Nintendo did a great job with it. Plus the reason most people don't approve of The Wind Waker is because Ocarina of Time had already set the standards as to what a Zelda game should look like in 3D. Besides, the Spaceworld 2000 clip sucked compared to what you see in Zelda2005's screens XD.

If they recapture the third party market, that'd be all kinds of shades of awesome. Although the fact that Nintendo isn't showing their next console at this years E3 is going to hurt their chances of gaining third party developers. They really need to get on the stick about this problem. They must get the third party guys.

No Rhett, I think I read somewhere that they ARE showcasing the revolution at E3. I could be wrong.


Besides, the Spaceworld 2000 clip sucked compared to what you see in Zelda2005's screens XD.

True. But that fight was awesome, thats what I was hoping for in Ocarina of Time, but it ended up being a "bounce the electro ball back at him" type of thing.

Maybe Zelda 05 will have an awesome sword fight. One can only hope. We don't even know if Ganondorf is in it. But if he isn't then... it will definatly subtract from the story, or take away from the zelda feeling.

With The Wind Waker, I didn't like it cause it was too short, the graphics were bloody brilliant though @.@ So much style, Nintendo did a great job with it.


It also lacked stuff, for example the major city was Windfall. There wasn't much else besides that....

I'm hoping Zelda 2005 will take place in Hyrule, with all towns like before, and maybe some additions. Imagine Hyrule feild like in that trailer, and then Hyrule Castle... Kakariko and Lake Hylia. Man, it would be awesome.

Here is a good idea for a 4D game. a game where you are in Paris, and you can travel though time.

you go to 2064 and see what paris as it is then, (it still has the eifel tower.) you play a level there and fight aginst robots and aliens.

You go back to 1944 and see it as in WW2. (eifel tower is still there, but newer) you sneak and fight aginst nazis who are ocupying them.

You go to 1354 and see the place as it was in medieval times.(eifel tower hasn't been built yet) gueass what, knights castles, trebuchets, archers and of cuorse whitch burnings.

You go to 3994 and see pais after a nuclear war (eifel tower still there, but in ruins along with the rest of the city and it is in a desert) you fight radioactive mutants.
