      You can build that yourself... Especially with the 2 year old technology they have in theirs.

        Although I have no faith in Phantom, a lot of the hype was the service it was going to provide, and not the actual hardware.

          Yes, the service, not the hardware. I believe it doesn't even have a CD or DVD drive, as all games you buy are done online and through their service.

            Maybe they got bought out by Microsoft because the XBOX360 is going to have a similar service.

              Heck with that console. You can not even have your own games, it has to be downloaded for purchase. What if your system burns out, I guess you be out of luck or is it pay for play. Blah! Blah! Blah!
              If they wanted a copyright protection, why not just make a DataStick for it.
              They would not go to far in the business with that system. I am sure they got the permission to use the electronics for the game console as they most likely know what happens when you do not, 'INDREAMA' would be the example.

                I am actually very impressed with this, I can't wait to test this baby out. I may even forget about the Xbox 360 for a while if the games are good for the Revolution. I still have to figure out if I will survive with out Halo 3!

                I guess I will have to try to get both!

                  As many have stated -- it is do or die for Nintendo at this point (in regards to the console industry).

                    Well, more in regards to console hardware, not the industry. Even if this console fails, they can do a Sega and start making games for all consoles and rely on games sales to keep them afloat.

                      It's not "do-or-die" time for Nintendo. They really don't even need to be in the console race, since the Game Boy alone makes Nintendo millions (maybe billions?) every fiscal year.

                        I think they meant do or die for console hardware, like I tried to explain. If they don't do well this generation then they may very well stop making hardware and concentrate on their Game Boys and games for other consoles.

                          You got to remember that Nintendo is meant for 13yrs and under & not meant for 16yrs to 35yrs like the other two consoles. If they were into the older demographic maybe they could do better, but they went with the younger group instead.

                            Umm... No. All the consoles can be played by anyone. It's just as sterotypically to assume only older people play PlayStation & Xbox just like other assume Nintendo is meant only for kids. Sure, maybe the games are demographically targeted, but anyone can play them...

                              No, you can just ask them @ the forums and you will find out that is exactly what Nintendo wanted for their systems and read what Satoru Iwata said that they created the console for children & not follow PS/Xbox way of selling their products. Since most PS/Xbox console owner are 20 to 35yrs old.
                              Well I know that is why it is release in Japan.

                                I don't think you can compare sega to nintendo when it comes to console hardware. Unlike the Sega Saturn everything Nintendo has produced after the SNES as enjoyed at least moderate sucess. True they are no longer the 'top-dogs' in sales of console harward, but I think they are doing well enough that we will be seeing consoles from Nintendo for years to come.

                                And while the Dreamcast did well, it was released at a 'bad time'. It came out right between PSX/Saturn/N64 generation and PS2/xbox/gamecube generation, thus many did not buy one simply because they knew something new was coming out in a couple of years, although they did sell like hot cakes when Sega Dropped the price to $50 .
