Spring release confirmed?

If true, this would really be splendid news, people! Infendo has cited the financial report most people have picked up on. Apparently, there was a hint about the Revo launching in spring, which noone else seems to have picked up on. More on this story soon.

EDIT Right, I have got a bit more time now. It seems that Revolution Report broke the story. However, they mentioned this detail only in passing, which is weird. I know some people associated with the site and they are reliable guys, no doubt. But if Revolution Report was totally sure about this aspect in the document, wouldn´t they post this as the main story? Maybe they are a bit unsure about this themselves.

The English translation of the Nintendo document (found here) contains no references to the Revolution. The Japanese original (found here) may do, though. But I cannot even open the document. I guess we will have to wait for someone Japanese to translate the relevant paragraph in it. Anyone?

What does spammer mean ?

Probably a month or so after LoZ:TP is released? I mean, it would boost sales, but at the same time they can't successfully have a past-gen game be the killer app for a next gen system. I'm going to say it will come out in the summer sometime.

Misinformation

Matt, love the site. I read somewhere that revolution is launcing in spring 2006 in japan! does that mean it will go toe to toe against ps3?

Matt responds: I saw that rumor floating around. It's not true. Someone mistakenly reported that Revolution would launch in Japan in the spring of 2006, based on Nintendo's recently released financial reports. However, if you read the financial reports, you'll see that Nintendo only stated Revolution would launch in 2006, period.

That's what I like to call a WTF situation.

Anyway, while I don't know anything, I wouldn't trust Matt C. either. The guy has been talking out of his ass way too much lately.

Or you could look at this. It might have something.

Falafelkid,

This is supposed to be a message that you get when you ask questions about the revolution on the Nintendo Powerline:

"As the company with the strongest heritage of innovation, Nintendo moves the bar for all next gen systems by employing a wide-ranging strategy that will attract more kinds of gamers to more kinds of games. When Nintendo's new console, codenamed Revolution, arrives in the latter half of 2006, everyone will discover the meaning of all-access gaming."

I don't know if this is genuin, but it was mentioned on http://www.revo-europe.com/news.php?nid=8367
