Little conspiracy theory tidbit.

Nintendo-3D.com redirects to some German company for 3D projectors (mainly for fairs and events). This is just an amusing find. Obviously, there is no connection to Nintendo here.

Dear Falafelkid,

Geist 2 ?
that must be a very bad joke !

Iwata mentioning Nintendo ON ?

Come on!

Only 150 dollars?

That would be suicide just like it was the case with GameCube because people will think its a toy or targeted at kids or lacking high end hardware!

As far as the games are concrened I think he will show a mixture of trditional titles like the new Mario and Zelda,original unconventional titles with mass appeal sorta like Brain trainer,ElektroPlankton or the cooking game and last but not least some exclusive mature (perhaps even epic,melancholic,surreal) heavy-hitters from Suda51 and Shini Mikami(Grasshopper manufacture-Capcom)hopefully Zoonami,Retro,Konami,Sega,Namco,Lucasarts,Valve and perhaps even something adventure or strategy related orginal from Tim Schafer,Peter Moulneaux and the people behind Age of Empires(that goes more under wishful thinking I guess).

On top of all that there will be a special guest appearance by none other than Mark Reign sharing the stage with Regginator who will take his chance to polish up his image by clarifying(just like in the eurogamer interview)his statements and announce a wi-fi enabled UnrealTournament2007 for Nintendo Revolution with great eclat.Mark Rein alongside his new buddy Regginator will form the new Super Mario Bros. duo gain cult status and eventually take over the world after staring in numerous plumber movies.They will become legends and never be forgotten.
Oh and did I to mantion that this union also represents the Revolution's last secret ?

As always remember where you heard it first !

You hear me Falafelkid ?

Why no Geist 2? The only reasons people give for it being a bad game are the graphics, framerate, and linear gameplay. Obviously with a stronger console (one nearly MADE for FPS's) all of these problems would be solved. I thought it was fun and I looked over its flaws very easily.

I don't know if they'll talk about it this year, though.

Hey Falafelkid,
This may sound kind of random, but do you remember that mysterious picture (I believe you posted it at the time) that was circulating the internet some time before Iwata showed the controller that looked like a black and white Wavebird controller with a bean shaped B-button, analog stick and D-pad swapped, and a big hole of some sort in the top? I believe that whoever distributed the picture claimed it had something to do with the Revolution controller, but it wasn't necessarily the controller in itself.

Well, I just remembered that picture today, and realized how much it looks like it could be the shell for the revolution controller allowing it to play ported games. The hole in the top looks like it would be a perfect fit for the Revolution controller to slide in. In fact, it looks quite a bit like the mock-up IGN made after Iwata's presentation.

Maybe it's just a total coincidence, or maybe there was more to that picture than we originally thought!

Weird, huh?

Hi Falafelkid,

I think perhaps you may have judged too soon as there is a connection to Nintendo here:

http://www.nintendo-3d.com/ links to some german company
(http://www.tmp-mediagroup.de/)
which happends to produce the exact same glasses as the fabled Nintendo ON seems to use :http://www.tmp-mediagroup.de/html_de/produkte/brillen_03.html

I then googeled to learn more on the technology used in those glasses and came by this interesting story: http://www17.tomshardware.com/2005/05/02/3d_stereo_technology/

On Page 9 it seems Nintendo is involved too as several japanese Companies interested in Stereo 3D imagery are mentioned: http://www17.tomshardware.com/2005/05/02/3d_stereo_technology/page9.html

Because if you follow the link for the 3D Consortium http://www.3dc.gr.jp/english/ You will find that in the members list (http://www.3dc.gr.jp/english/link/index.cgi) Namco is listed as one of the founders..Nintendo itself is mentioned too a bit lower in the list

Falafelkid said...

Hi Palmbeer. Thank you for your research. TMP is, however, totally unrelated. The reason behind the referral is this: TMP both manufactures as well as rents out 3D equipment. Some years ago they had built a prototype that produced a fake 3D image from a Nintendo console (eiter N64 or GCN I guess). This project was never official, there was no collaboration with Nintendo whatsoever and it was abandoned a long time ago. That is why they still own the URL, they just told me on the phone.

As far as the 3D consortium is concerned, you seem to have overlooked the fact that Nintendo is only a standard member, while Sony is what they call a ´steering member´. Sure, they also manufacture tv screens and broadcast equipment and will thus have other interests in 3D technology (outside of videogames). But I don´t think this proves anything about Nintendo.

PalmBeer said...

Thanks for the clarification Falafelkid,

Just curious, where do you stand on N5_Dev's statement that the official name will be:

Nintendo RS which stands for Nintendo Revolution System.

It makes sense to me as it resembles where they started in the beginning (NES). Also if you look at the fabled Nintendo ON video (www.nintendoon.com) you will see that at 4:16 the name Revolution System is shown.

N5 claims that this Nintendo ON video was an actual video from a secret presentation shown at e# last year to a select few. Thats why the video showed up on the net at that moment (which happend to coincide with the X360's announcements).

N5 also claims that he is 100% sure the ON is real, will be sold as an add-on and that the video shows the initial thoughts Nintendo had at that time for the system.

I would REALLY like to know where you stand on the revealed name and especially the story about the ON that N5 cannot seem to stop ranting about.

To be honest, the prospect of the ON being an add-on which isn't required to play revolution games but which will ultimatly enhance them beyond anything we know now... The ON would also explain why Nintendo is so resistant to HD...

Falafelkid said...

Hey Palmbeer. As I have said a number of times, I cannot get myself to completely dismiss the ON video as fake. However, I would not rate the actual helmet shown as very likely. It doesn´t fit the console in terms of design, for a start. But there could be a similar hardware add-on.

About the name: I don´t think ´RS´ or ´Revolution System´ are likely names. There is a reason they are hiding both games and the name from us. So, obviously, the name will give away the secret. So it will be ´Nintendo 3D´ or ´Nintendo Voice´ or something like that. You get the jist.

PalmBeer said...

Many thanks again for replying so quickly Falafelkid.

Saddly this still puts me at a loss as to what to believe and what not to believe.

My head's been spinning like mad on this for several weeks now (im checking several Blogs daily, sometimes even several times a day).

I only hope I dont get my hopes up too high so that I'll be dissappointed when the secret is revealed...

On the other hand I have complete faith in Nintendo that they will deliver. Thinking back on how Iwata said, when you see the graphics you will say WOW...

I want to say WOW...

Official Info from Reggie/Iwata can't come quickly enough...

Floor vision? I've seen that. Leow's movie theatres (New England has them) usually have this mat somewhere in the theatre where they beam light down on the floor and you can interact with it. For example, it will display some cool blue water, and when a stately businessman walks on it, the water will separate as if he is trudging through two feet of crystal blue H20. Another example would be a virtual soccer ball, which children can kick around within the confines of a 6'x4' rectangle. It's really imprecise, though. And the image is washed out because of the surrounding lights. Nintendo probably made something similar, and will most likely use it to jazz up their E3 booth, just to give impatient journalists something to do while they wait for two hours to play the Revolution for thirty seconds.

Yeah, I live in Connecticut and they have those interactive floor projectors in the mall and the movie theater nearby. One of the things that they project is the fish and bridge thing that was at E3.

Hallo Falafelkid,

Von der seite betrachtet gäbe es doch logischerweise nur zwei Szenarien die plausibel wären.

1.:

Nintendo Revolution wird die erste Konsole darstellen, die es dem Spieler erlaubt sich zu einem gewissen Grad kreativ auszutoben, sprich Revolution wird voraussichtlich mit einer art extrem fortgeschrittenem(in die Konsole integriertem) MARIO PAINT ausgeliefert.Dieses Szenario würde den "prepare to let your right brain go wild" Statements von Reggi(nator)Fils-Aime und einem -von dir etwas anders interpretiertem- Patent meiner Meinung nach gerecht werden.Außerdem würde sich der Remote-Controller perfekt als Eingabegerät für so ein(komplexes) Programm eignen wenn mann es sich denn mal vor Augen führt.


2.:
Das andere Szenario sähe in meinen Augen folgendermaßen aus:


Bei Nintendo Revolution handelt es sich um die erste Konsole, die es ermöglicht vorgerenderte Hintergründe in real-time, in eine echte 3D Welt interaktiv einzubinden.Dadurch etsteht ein Vorteil gegenüber der Konkurrenz, mit dem man mit geringfügigem technischen Aufwand bewerkstelligt die selben Ergebnisse wie Ps3,Xbox180 zu erzielen und somit imstande ist erhebliche entwicklungs-kosten zu umgehen.Diese Vermutung beruht auf sich im Umlauf befindende bzw. von dir behandelte Patente von Nintendo.

Was wäre deiner Meinung nach am plausibelsten ?
