Die Revolution kommt ins Rollen. Nachdem Saturo Iwata, Präsident von NCL, bereits auf der CES in Las Vegas ankündigte, Nintendos nächste Konsole Revolution würde stark auf Wireless setzen, wurde nun der strategische Partner verlautbart. Das amerikanische Unternehmen Broadcom wird sich für diesen relevanten Part am mysteriösen GameCube-Nachfolger verantwortlich zeigen. Wir rechnen fest mit kabelloser Anbindung ans Internet, schnurlosen Controllern und einer technisch perfekten Umsetzung. Mehr Informationen gibt es hoffentlich auf der E3 - und dann bei uns!

Broadcom's diverse portfolio of technology solutions will enable Nintendo to add cutting-edge wireless features and connectivity to its popular line of gaming consoles.

Differentiated features like these enable an extraordinary user experience for consumer devices, such as the Nintendo gaming device.

"The digital home of the future will increasingly include wireless technologies for their ease of use and consumer convenience," said Brian O'Rourke, Senior Analyst for In-Stat. "Integrated wireless technology from proven vendors like Broadcom will enhance the gaming experience for the vast majority of next-generation gamers, whether competing against someone in the same room or on the other side of the world."

nichts spektakulär neues, aber doch ein nettes signal, dass nintendo so langsam auch bzgl. revolution etwas lauter wird.

Reggie hat auch gesagt, wenn Nintendo von WiFi spricht, ist hauptsächlich onlinegaming gemeint. Wifi-LAN ohne Router wie beim NDS, also einfach Konsole an Fernseher/ PC-Monitor ist schon was feines. Und Ratzinger ist Papst :o

Mal schauen ob Sony oder Nintendo Microsoft nächste Woche die Show stehlen können und mit tollen Neuigkeiten vorab an die Öffentlichkeit gehen... Sonst redet jeder nur noch über die Xbox II.
