MCV understands that Nintendo president Satoru Iwata is set to unveil some key details regarding the enigmatic next-gen Revolution console at the Games Developers Conference in March.The Game Developers Conference will take place from the 20th to the 24th of March in San Jose. Whether Iwata will be present or not is not yet confirmed. The list of keynote speakers will be posted here, most likely within the next few days. It was promised by January and is thus long overdue.
Though many have presumed that all new information would be kept under wraps until E3 in May, senior sources suggest Iwata will choose to make key announcements, possibly including pricing and release details, earlier.
With a Nintendo Europe press release this week reaffirming that Revolution is still on track for a European launch this year, this news puts more pressure on Sony, whose continued silence is reducing the likelihood of a 2006 European release for PS3.
On the phone, the MCV editors felt very confident that their source was reliable but, obviously, declined to give any more details. It is important to bear in mind here that MCV is the leading industry magazine in many important markets, including Germany and the UK. In the past, their inside sources proved extremely reliable.
