Overactive eMagination?

I must admit that I have found no real news to post. There is one thing that bugs me, though: this whole eMagin connection. Some guy on the Nintendo forums claimed Seriousgamer007 sent him a message with the phone number of some person called Bruce, who had apparently just had a meeting with Nintendo regarding stereoscopic technology.

I have spoken to the company´s communications director Joe Runde. He assured me there was no cooperation between eMagin and Nintendo, or any console manufacturer for that matter. He even doubted this technology could be implemented in the price range dictated by this market (in contrast to what Rick Shie of POC was telling me some time ago).

But even if that meeting did not concern any concrete plans, what´s still bugging me is this: How could Seriousgamer007 have known about that meeting in the first place? Don´t get me wrong, I´m convinced he doesn´t work for Nintendo. In fact, this is proof that he doesn´t. If Nintendo went around dishing out people´s phone numbers at partner cmopanies so they talk about classified stuff while being recorded so the whole internet can listen in, they would soon not have many business partners left. But it´s still intriguing to ask how he could have found out. I have no idea. But maybe the infamous Bruce will tell me. When I phoned Bruce up last week, he asked me for my understanding that he couldn´t comment on anything. But he was surprised to find out someone had taped that conversation. In return for sending him the link to Seriousgamer´s blog, I asked if he could keep me updated on his reply. So we might find out who this guy really is - and where he got this info from.

In fact, I will even meet Joe Runde in person. He´s going to the Games Convention, too. And he will show me the Z800 3D visor they just put out. And, of course, I will ask him whether he had any info on this mysterious leak. Finally, I just want to reiterate: there will be no info on the Revolution. Just so you won´t be disappointed. My guess is that Nintendo will unveil the controller at the TGS keynote speech or at the Nintendo World Store.

u really think its going down at TGS? It seems a tad early to me assuming they won't launch until Q2 2006.

Falafelkid said...

Well, they will try to take the whole momentum out of the Xbox360 launch. So TGS would be perfect timing, wouldn´t it?

Nomadx469 said...

I agree you falafelkid, TGS it is. The perfect timeing to pull microsoft by the horns,but besides the controller, they also need some mouth watering demos to show us.

P.S.
Does anyone think Nintendo might hesitate showing the controller because of SONY possible late 2006-,07 launch.

Anonymous said...

They said they'd show everything by the end of the year, and they will do that. They would lose a lot of potential support, otherwise.

Where can I find a copy of the clip? Or a transcript?

MCHammer said...

Well, Iwata is speaking for 30 minutes at TGS. Really, how much stuff can he show in that time period? And they can't go in depth or anything at all.

Nomadx469 said...

that's 50 min.,and plenty can be done.
and don't forget this is nintendo where talking about the master's of secret's and mistery

If "Bruce" was unaware of the taping of the call, and needed a link to seriousgamer007's blog - just last week - how is it possible that seriousgamer007 claims - TWO weeks ago - that emagin had contacted him and threatened him with legal action?
Guy's pathological.

Anonymous said...

i remember reading one of his chat logs that the 'threat' was a fake and it was done to draw in more people.

anyhow, i honestly think that seriousgamer is bruce westcoat. it's the only way he could've 'known' this 'nintendo meeting.' also, i think he really is a 29 year old marketting specialist just based on how he writes (when he's out of seriousgamer mode) and how he draws people toward his 'product' (whether you love it or hate it.)

I am not Bruce Westcoat.

Makes you wonder indeed doesnt it.

The odds of me knowing this was one in a million unless there was something more.

More to me than you could possibly imagine.

So many of you focus on me and want to believe that I am a fake, work for a marketing company, eccentric, pathological, or what have you.

The simple fact of the matter is I do know.

And you know about me as much as you know about the Revolution Officially from Nintendo.

Little to Nothing at all.

You dont have to believe what I say is true. Because it doesnt matter. The truth will be in the unveiling. And no it will not be at the TGS or in Germany.

I know you're a pathological liar because you've admitted more than once. I also know your an fanboy attention whore with too much time on your hands.
I definitely agree that you're not Bruce Westcoat. And I'm certain you've never talked to him about eMagin 's alleged involvement in the "revolution".
You are entertaining though.
Hey are you still unemployed (gee , I wonder why that is?), cause I could hire you to be some sort of entertainer for my company. Like a Jester or something. Whattya say?

To SeriousGamer 007:

I for one only read your blog for a laugh. You have said several times that you would stop posting, and yet, you still post. Give it up, you get a hard on from the attention. If you weren't drunk off the readers, you would allow a section to post comments. You don't because you know it would be full of comments like this one putting you in your place.

Where is the proof? Blurry screen shots and half assed college entry level design renders!??!!? Show us something real or go away. You are giving the Revolution a bad name. PS3 and M$ Fanboys laugh at us because of people like you.

Kevin said...

If you get the see the Z800 will you post your thoughts on it? I really want to know how good it is.

Hi all...

If anyone wants it, here's the phone clip with "Bruce":
http://rapidshare.de/files/3248858/bruce1.wav.html

"Does anyone think Nintendo might hesitate showing the controller because of SONY possible late 2006-,07 launch"
Not at all, the PS3 specs should be almost finalised by now, it'll be too late for Sony to copy Nintendo's ideas this round. The TGS is perfect to unveil the controller, it's the "biggest thing" for the rest of this year, and Nintendo did say it will all be reveal during 2005...

"that's 50 min.,and plenty can be done."
Agreed, I wonder how he can fill up the time otherwise?

"how is it possible that seriousgamer007 claims - TWO weeks ago - that emagin had contacted him and threatened him with legal action?"
He never mentioned "eMagin" contacting him, just that he was sued for legal action, he says it's for leaking too much info about the "Visor".

"i think he really is a 29 year old marketting specialist just based on how he writes (when he's out of seriousgamer mode) and how he draws people toward his 'product' (whether you love it or hate it.)"
He is... he's told us in previous posts.

darken-
he implied , suggested , overtured and innuendoed that emagin was the legal aggressor. (just like all his nonsense - all hearsay, no fact). He even came out and claimed "eMagin - I have fulfilled your demands" at the end of the
entry claiming he was threatened with legal action.
If you don't think he was implying eMagin...?
And now we find out eMagin never heard of the guy or his site as recently as last week.
Fake? (as if there were doubt)
All the proof I need.

Thunder Emperor said...

this is a question for everyone. With the slow increasing complatants by some developers about the difficulty of developing for multicore cpu's,name gabe of Value and john carmac of ID.
Do you think this implies some reasoning that some of the most beleivable rev spec have dual processors at lower clock speed.

which i think is possible considering IBM just announced a new line of power pc processors runing at about 1.6 and i believe 1.8 at very low power usage. This might be the route nintendo goes. Becasue you have the rev running of two a dual processor system which developers can and do know how to develop for and also at lower clock frequencies at 1.8 each and lower power consumption. it may look less powerful but in actually can easily compete with xbox360 and ps3. what do you guys think?

Anonymous said...

Sounds good to me. I think the Revolution will probably be able to do whatever the other guys will (Except HD), but the specs might not look as good on paper. There are a lot of factors at play when you're talking about system power. If fanboys want to believe that the Rev lacks the power of Xbox 360 and PS3, they will. Nobody gave a darn back when N64 had graphics far superior to Playstation, and nobody seemed to notice that GameCube was more powerful than PS2. So it makes you wonder how much it really matters.

I'm excited about the way the Revolution is headed. I like the extremely small footprint, sleek look, and the mentality Nintendo seems to have about making a system everybody wants to have in the house. Easy to use free WIFI gaming, portability, bakwards compatibility, something new and different for a controller... I can't wait.

Thunder Emperor said...

yeah I feel the rev will compete nicely and will do so also on the HD level. from my experince with nintnedo as an N-gamer. theri machine pack the right amount of punch needed to do what is needed

Q: When will more revolution news be announced?

A: Shortly after the Leipzig Games Convention. I don't have an exact time frame -- it could be a day or a week, but I don't expect it will be much longer.

[Quote]Zelda Delayed to Next Year
Twilight Princess development team requests extra time to make it a better game.
by Matt Casamassina
[59631]

August 16, 2005 - Nintendo announced this morning that its anticipated new adventure game, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, has been delayed. The title, formerly scheduled to debut this November around the world, has since been postponed to 2006 so that the developer can continue to make the game better.

[B]"After much discussion, the Zelda development team has requested extra time to add new levels, more depth and even higher quality to Zelda: Twilight Princess," said Nintendo of America's vice president of corporate affairs, Perrin Kaplan. "Consequently, we're announcing [COLOR=red]a new global launch in 2006, after the conclusion of this fiscal year (March 31)[/COLOR]. We'll provide a specific date at a later point in time. While this may come as a disappointment to many eager fans, it will absolutely enrich the game and make it a multi-million seller."[/B]

Twilight Princess, developed by Nintendo and directed by Majora's Mask overseer Eiji Aonuma, was previously set to be the company's big holiday game. In fact, analysts expected the game to be Nintendo's single greatest deterrent to consumers potentially interested in Microsoft's next-generation console, Xbox 360, which is set for a November launch. The delay leaves Nintendo without a major holiday release on GameCube.

In the epic adventure, a 17-year-old Link travels across a gritty, realistic world and is able to move into an alternate dark land called the Twilight Realm, where he transforms into a wolf. Twilight Princess won a number of considerations by critics when it was presented in playable form at the Electronics Entertainment Expo. However, even then, members of the development team hinted in interviews that they would have to work overtime in order to meet a holiday release.

Nintendo has released seven new screenshots of the game in motion. Readers are directed to our images section for new shots of Link exploring a populated town and manipulating the snow as the wolf.

Stay tuned for much more on the game in the coming weeks and months.[/Quote]

i have a hard time believing twilight princess has been converted to a rev game, but it does explain a few things.

First of all, assuming TP is still a GC game, we can safely put to rest any thoughts of the revolution coming out before Q3 2006. No way Nintendo would put it's biggest GC game up against the revolution launch. They will want to give zelda every chance it can get to sell.

however, why announce such a long delay (4+ months) 3 months before the previously expected release? A switch to the revolution does make sense when you look at it in this light. Plus, Nintendo could basically be saying, "we give up" when it comes to the GC. What better way to start strong with the revolution than a zelda/smash bros/and possibly mario launch lineup.

this is interesting news, and to be honest, i hope TP is a rev. game now. It would mean a better launch lineup, and an earlier release date for the rev.

what do you think falafelkid?

Thunder Emperor said...

i do think TP is a revolution game casue at this point it would be foolish for it not to be one. what a dissappointemnt. "sigh"

Anonymous said...

look at mario 128, no longer on cube

and there is already 1 mario title for the cube and 1 zelda title

it seems likely it will be a rev game

Anonymous said...

dude seriousgamer just posted the emagin email on his site.

Damn maybe he is real.

sssd said...

as much as i would like to see TP coming out on the rev, i honestly just can't see it happening. It's much more likely that the rev will be coming out november 2006, and TP sometime in the summer for GC.

At least, that's what I'll believe until i hear otherwise...

sssd said...

oh, and that email on seriougamer's blog could have easily been photoshopped. (i like the way he cut off the bottom of the zelda picture so you can't see the "ign" logo)

bullshit said...

Just to clear things up.

I SENT SERIOUSGAMER007 THE EMAIL IN ORDER TO SHUT HIM UP.

I sent the email through this link:
http://64.233.179.104/search?q=cache:z0eqOwUXmAwJ:www.blockstatus.com/anonymous-mailer+send+email+any+address&hl=en&client=firefox-a

It's a hidden email sender. You can send emails from any address. I chose info@emagin.com, looked up their address on the website, and tried to made it look professional.

Obviously it worked.

I can't believe it's gotten this big. This really cracks me up. You have no idea.

Thunder Emperor said...

Tp can easily come out for rev. heck kameco was moved from xbox - xbox360 quite easily according to rare. so i don't think it is impossible, and look at the graphical improvements kameco got.

Thunder Emperor said...

@bullshit


lol hell seriusgamer is fun, but at least he keeps the talk alive. that is why we have blogs like this.

Jmv290 said...

Bruce? I was on Nsider and it believe the name was Carl.


My friend is waiting for Seriousgamer's reply to an email concerning the several times he admitted he was a fake

Theoretically, those Cheap Oakley Sunglasses can hfkjtylt give wearers much nicer and natural vision, for no vision line can be found on them. Still, wearers will always think no Oakley sunglasses on their face with those special oakley frogskins .Therefore, it is necessary to have a good idea in the related topics. First of all, wearing Oakley sunglasses indoors anywhere is almost always not appropriate, unless you have some sort of extra sensitivity to light. But people are still going to think you're a little odd and look at you funny. Besides, when someone is trying to carry on a conversation with you and they're not sure if you're paying attention to them. oakley radar is well known the reason that people invented the Oakley sunglasses.Another reason why many children refuse to wear oakley jawbones is the styles of those Oakley sunglasses are similar with others', such their parents, siblings, friends, etc. Or some Oakley sunglasses are symbols of nerd, geek, and pedant. Therefore, children can also have Oakley sunglasses with the latest fashion. Sometimes, children may demand to wear some very stylish oakley jawbone , for those Oakley sunglasses are the same as their idols'. Maybe there are no obvious difference between their Oakley sunglasses and other ordinary Oakley sunglasses. However, suitableness is good.In general, bifocal safety Oakley sunglasses refer to a special type of spectacles that can offer the functionalities both of ordinary Oakley sunglasses and protective safety Oakley sunglasses. There are obviously two major elements of this type of eyewear.
