In an article about Square Enix denying recent rumours about ´Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles´, Eurogamer reminded me of a most interesting quote by Square Enix president Yoichi Wada:
We would like to strongly support Nintendo’s next-generation networking plans. The Revolution may embody a new platform beyond a portable or console, which makes possible a new structure in the network gaming system, changing the ways communities are built and supported. This is the kind of direction we’ve envisioned, and we will challenge ourselves to provide immersive interactive content in response to what Nintendo offers.
This quote is as old as it is overlooked. It is confirmation of the Revolution being neither a portable, nor a home console. This effectively means that the Revolution will be portable to some extent, since it will not be a classic home console. And Wada also confirms that Nintendo´s online plans will take advantage of this portability aspect. The only question is: If the Revolution will not be a portable either, where will it take us?
