Cube to continue despite 'Revolution'
In a new report published by Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has hinted that they may continue to sell the GameCube even after the launch of their next-generation system, code-named 'Revolution'. Clearly Sony's efforts with the PSone, and the company's similar plans for the PS2, have been an influencing factor in Nintendo's planning, though we've no word on whether new games will be developed for the Cube once its replacement debuts.
The Revolution console is planned for an unveiling at E3 2005, with a launch later that year in Japan expected - followed by the rest of the world in 2006. The new system promises to up the technological ante, whilst also delivering 'genuine' innovation, perhaps in a similar fashion to the steps taken by the Nintendo DS.
