Una nuova intervista a Reggie Fils-Aime, successiva al GDC e al discorso di Satoru Iwata:
Non si riesce a capire esattamente come sia realizzato l'online, parlano di un "sistema", di un'infrastruttura su cui è costruito il collegamento, quindi porterebbe a pensare che non si basi sulle normali linee telefonicheReggie Fils-Aime: Revolution as well as Nintendo DS, as we launch the right software and finalize our system, will be able to get on the Internet. So you'll be able to play your neighbor across the street, you'll be able to play your friend cross-country, or that new friend across the world. When we talk about WiFi-enabled, we really are talking about wireless play through the Internet for both of those systems and we're committed to making that happen on DS by the end of the year.
RF: I think what's become apparent is that we now have a way to provide an infrastructure, a backbone, in a way that makes sense, in a way that's financially feasible for us, and it was all about being able to provide that infrastructure free for the gamer. Now that we've sorted that through, we're going to push full bore in making this happen.
E non credo che parlino dei server, quelli potrebbero benissimo costruirseli anche gli sviluppatori di terze parti...
A quanto pare non vedremo Revolution all'opera all'E3, ma avremo finalmente informazioni sufficienti, e probabilmente sarà mostrata in esclusiva ad un gruppo scelto della stampa.RF: At E3 we will certainly share more information about Revolution. Having said that, Revolution won't have a big presence at the booth itself. It'll be touched on in our press briefing, I'll talk about it with our retailers, we may show some things in the back room so to speak. But on the show floor it really is all about Game Boy Advance and showcasing the great product we have for that system. It's gonna be about DS and the new games we're launching for the August-through-holiday time period, and showcasing the great product for GameCube, especially the Legend of Zelda game.
Il prossimo E3 sarà quasi tutto di software per N, con nuovi giochi GBA, DS e Zelda su GC.
