Revolution Video NO WAY!
« on: May 15, 2005, 03:06:20 pm »
This has to be the biggest spoof ever!

Right?...

I don't want to give anything away about the video...just watch it and tell me what you think.

Think it's possible?  It certainly would be a revolution...

O...M...F...G...

I HOPE that's real. The video looks legit.

But it's all very strange.

I wish they'd make a system with headset screens, handheld controllers, and a box on the floor for processing. Using the screen you could tilt your head to look in different directions, and do everything else with controller.

I think the mario portions of the video look authentic, I didn't expect the video to go in that direction though.

Ouch! what can I say... I'm torn.

I so want to believe this is real, but... I don't know. It all feels to good to be true, more like next-next gen gaming or further. But why the hell would somebody go to such an effort to stir up a hoax? Could be some kid's college project or something.

And didn't that running mario at the end look a bit err, Skinny? Maybe he's cut out the pasta and opted for a low carb lifestyle.. :D

If this is by the grace of god, true. Then yeah, it's a revolution that would devour the other consoles and dominate the market.
It could be frankie. It could be very fresh and clean. It could be a balloon.

It really depends on the price.  Even ntough the PSP is superior to the DS Nintendo still sold more.

Apart of me wants to believe.

I'm 99 percent sure it's fake, and I believe other big gaming websites, such as IGN, are also reporting it as fake.

Besides, such a system doesn't seem to me like it would work. First, in that video, there person using the thing is walking around. If you had to actually navigate the world by walking around, wouldn't you be bumping into the walls or tripping over your bed?

Hey! If the politicians think violent video games are a problem now, just wait until people actually feel like they are in the action! ;)

I saw this video a few days ago. Not sure what it is, but I'm pretty sure it's fake or something else -- sometimes companies produce "dummy" promotional videos to give out false info, or to just some cheap PR! I think this might be the latter believe it or not.

I wouldn't put it past Nintendo to be the first to take the next step in designing creative physical UI's like this.  While everyone else seems to be pumping out the same formulaic consoles, they are pumping out innovative stuff.

This seems like it's probably faked, but on the other hand, why would you bother spending so much time to fake it? That would be a lot of work, it seems to me.

Apparently according to Gamespot's rumour control it was created as a protest against the short life span of consoles.

This posted was posted by the person claiming to be it's creator:
"Commerciality forces companies to put out new consoles every 2 or 3 years with the only intent being to erase the limits (set by current consoles) for game developers, This does not allow game developers to let their imagination run wild and delight us (the gamers) with transcendent new games,"


personally, I really am at a loss to how this could be a protest of any kind. If this guy/gal was trying to raise cyncism towards the lifespan, I would say he/she really did this opposite. It's only tickled peoples imaginations and made them look forward to the future of next generation gaming, as that advert for PS9 did.

I can only hope that this person had some kind of college project where this was to be handed in, because quite frankly if it's not... this person is wasting the great talent they have.

Who wants to start a betting pool on when a college student will come out and reveal he did this? That's the only explanation I can think of.

So I'm putting $20 on Thursday.
