IGN has decided to launch their revolution site with a bunch of heresay and hawshaw.

I'll just wait for nintendo to come out and say what they will. They made late changes to the cube to cripple it in some ways and improve it in others, so who knows.

But its finally good to see IGN take Nintendos advice and make a 'Revolution' section

I don't really care about graphics. As long as it can play the games, I'm all right.

sooo many rumors and claims all over the place that I have no said screw it, im sure it will still rock. Better graphics than gamecube X 2, hell ya. Ninty is going to pull through. DS vs PSP, exactly.

When did we all become such number crunchers? I think it is sad that people would actually try and shoot a console down a console a year before it's release and without ever seeing any of its games, let alone playing any of them. It is just madness!

Thats just the point, I think... it just gives the other console fanboys ammunition to use. Nobody who's posted in this topic is even talking about the numbers... I could care less about the 'power' inside... its the games that matter

Nintendo fans sure do like to downplay graphics. Don't get me wrong, I don't think graphics are the most important thing, but they're more important than some of you guys are willing to admit. If graphics don't matter, why is Nintendo even releasing a "next gen" console? Why not continue the Gamecube and just sell the new controller as an add-on? Nintendo is all about offering the gaming public cheaper alternatives, right? So sell the new controller for Gamecube for $50 and everybody wins. Nintendo fans have their gimmicky innovation and sub-par graphics, Nintendo rakes in the profits.

Nintendo stated themselves that graphics are an imporntant part of next gen. When did they or nintendo fans deny that? They also are bringing something different to the table, why do people get upset when Nintendo makes a profit off of quality titles:shake:

Thier next console will be totally different from the cube.

I've seen a lot of Nintendo fans saying it. Just in this topic alone...

They're right that the games are ultimately more important than the graphics, but they're kidding themselves if they don't think graphics contribute to making games great in the first place. Would Metroid Prime have been as good if it didn't have the great graphics and atmospheric environments? No, probably not. The beautiful graphics help draw you into the game and make you feel like you're actually in it.

Nintendo says a lot of things they don't really mean. If graphics were important to them, then Revolution (and even DS and GBA) would be a lot more powerful. No matter how much they say they do what the gaming public wants, it's all comes down to dollar signs in the end. That's why Gamecube is a distant 3rd in sales to Xbox and PS2, and I guarantee Revolution will be as well. You can quote me on that.
