Clear Gamecube

Thread Cleaned - keep it on topic!

Nice to see the Gamecube getting some good homebrew interest, much like the Dreamcast did back in the day (and still does probably) even larger studios did some work, and the original Quake was ported over to the DC. Would definitely be interested in one if I owned a GC :)

The next nintendo unit will have newer tech than either ps3 or Xbox360 from the grapevine.

Will be most interesting to see what they come out with.

The GameCube has some pretty nice tech in it, however the PS2 is a complete whore and the xBox produced pretty/shiny graphics, therefore it basically got swept under the carpet.

When it comes to games consoles it seems the superior consoles always get ignored. History has proven this again and again. I guess people just like hype :)

Not a clue, other than it will be using Sony's new Cell Processor.. apparently.

I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that once again Sony's offering will be the blatantly inferior machine, however once again, the most popular. I'm hoping Microsoft will be able to grab a much larger market share this time round.

The specs of "Revolution" havn't leaked yet (that I know of). Only thing I have seen is that it will be backwards compatible with gamecube and "will use 12 cm optical discs and be about the size of three DVD cases stacked together".

According to the site, the console will boast four 2.5Ghz IBM G5 Custom cores, with 128KB of level 1 cache and a 512KB shared level 2 cache, while the graphics will be powered by a dual core ATI RN520 chipset, with 16MB of on-board eDRAM for the frame buffer.
:eek:

... Revolution will be about the thickness of three standard DVD cases and only slightly longer.
Thats a pretty damn small console compared to the giant set-top boxes of this next gen. I mean Xbox 360 is suppose to be 11 1/4" high by 3" wide was it? Nintendo also seems to have gotten the online thing this time around making Revolution "wireless Internet ready out of the box."

I also find it interesting that all 3 top players are getting CPU/GPU's from the same companys. I didn't think I would be saying this but "N" almost has me thinking of buying into this next gen of consoles. I just hope people are buying them for the games (hasn't happend in years) and not for the hype *cough*ps2/xbox*cough*.
