From what SPOnG can tell, there is currently 86,793 blogs dedicated to wondering about Revolution. And from what we've read, 92.7% of everything they ever write about concerns whether the name of Nintendo's Revolution will remain Revolution, or whether it will be changed to something more appropriate. SPOnG would suggest that the fact Nintendo has repeatedly stated Revolution is strictly a codename renders 100% of these articles as useful as a JoWood press disc, but that's just us. We're kind of mean-spirited.
So what, we wonder, will armies of teenage boys with no girlfriends whose parents only bought them a GameCube (thus enslaving them into a lifetime of fanboy loneliness) do with their spare time after Thursday, when, at the 2006 Games Developers Conference in San Jose, Nintendo will announce the final name of its next console?
Well-placed pre-show chatter has it that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata will announce the final, retail name of Revolution on Thursday, ending the pain of us being emailed by various webmasters boasting new and brilliant headlines such as “Nintendo Revolution: Not Final Name!!!” and the equally thrilling “Nintendo Revolution: Final Name!!!”.
As to what Nintendo will call its increasingly delicious box of tricks is anyone's guess, though we hear from colleagues in Japan that a reference to the Famicom may well be on the cards. If you have a boring and predictable, or even insightful and thrilling guess as to what the name may be, do let us know in the forum located south of these very words.
