The Revolution will have a global worldwide launch or not, maybe it will, on the other hand perhaps it won't. Hmm, well it seems like everyone's been barking up the wrong tree about what Nintendo president Saturo Iwata may or indeed may not have recently said about Nintendo's global launch plan for the big N's next-gen console.
Anyway, a Nintendo spokesperson has attempted to shine light into the darkness by talking to trade mag MCV in an effort to clarify Iwata's recent comments about the possibility of a global launch. While many took Iwata's recent word to mean a mult-territory global launch wasn't on the cards, now apparently it could be.
"The comments have been taken out of context," the unnamed Nintendo spokesperson told MCV. "What he's actually saying is that we're not holding a worldwide launch just because everyone else is doing one too. It's just another re-iteration of the fact that we're not looking at what Sony or Microsoft are doing."
"Unfortunately, it seems everyone's jumped on it and got the wrong idea."
So Nintendo could go for a global launch after all, although the spokesperson didn't attempt to shed any further light, ruling nothing out, but of course also ruling nothing in. It seems we'll have to wait for Nintendo's E3 presentation to provide final answers, but the big N has consistently gone for the third way and there's no reason why its launch plans should be any different.
