Iwata vows cheap games and expandable memory for the Revolution

In an interview with CNNMoney, Satoru Iwata spoke about what the Revolution would be and what it wouldn’t be.

One of the most important things he vowed in his interview is that the games for the Revolution won’t even cost more than $50. According to Iwata, the idea of spending over $60 for a game could be unreasonable. He reasons that flashier graphics make the games more expensive. Iwata vows although the costs for these types of games maybe permissible to some titles, not all titles should have a heavy cost as this. The discussion of smaller games available for downloads were discussed, however Iwata stressed that further details about this system will be discussed in E3. The Revolution would have a “Virtual Console” system, a service that could download all Nintendo games released in previous systems as well as new games that could be developed for the “Virtual Console”

If this system was developed, then the discussion of Nintendo’s storage was inescapable. The issue with regards to Nintendo’s hard drive system is still under the dark. The big revelation about Revolution’s hard drive will be further discussed in E3. However, in his interview, Iwata spoke that the Revolution will not have its own hard drive but it will have storage options. The Revolution will have its own built-in 512MB Flash memory. More so, it will have slots for SD memory cards so that people have to option to expand the Revolution’s memory. USB ports would be available as well, offering the possibility of using flash drives, even external hard drives.

The “Virtual Console” system might be the very key that could keep the Revolution afloat. Companies such as Sega and Hudson software have already conducted deals with Nintendo with regards to this “Virtual Console system”. More so, the sheer love for classic Nintendo games would definitely make people want the revolution more. Didn’t we all start with Tetris and Super Mario anyway?
