Game Informer Interviews George Harrison

Game Informer has gone online with its new Game Informer Unlimited service. You get access to a 21-page interview (yes, 21 pages, I kid you not) with George Harrison, Senior Vice President of Sales and Corporate Communications at Nintendo of America. Anyway, Go Nintendo posted up a summary of the more important bits, and we have it for all of you today.

  • EA will be showing a few Revolution games at E3 and hope to make launch
  • Revolution price may not be announced at E3 – they are currently looking to see how Sony will play their cards
  • They learned from Xbox 360 that launch-time is an important first impression – they plan to meet demand
  • They plan to do a worldwide launch – maybe at a schedule like the Xbox 360
  • Nintendo is looking for third-parties to fill in genres they don’t do (i.e. FPS)
  • Games should be $50 or lower
  • Conversations have been made between Rockstar, but nothing specific has been confirmed
  • Revolution-DS connectivity hasn’t been worked on much yet – discouraged by GCN/GBA connection
  • Game Boy has not been abandoned, but this years focus is on DS Lite

Interesting stuff. Although the worldwide launch contradicts some earlier reports. The Revolution-DS connectivity, although not worked on yet, should still happen. We’ve been hearing that we will be able to download demos to the DS for some time now. Check back with us for more on all this really soon.
