Nintendo : Simultaneous Revolution Release
If your friends jumped off a cliff, would you do it too? What if your adversaries jumped?
Microsoft, as we know, is basically doing a simultaneous worldwide release of their Xbox 360 console. (If you don’t live in Africa or other sundry places.) Now Nintendo wants to do the same with their Revolution (after March 2006, but before December 31 2006).
So what does this mean for Sony? Are the screws turning, pressuring Sony to follow suit?
Somehow, I don’t think so. Frankly, I think Sony’s gonna go on their own merry way and do whatever they would have anyway. Which is probably not a simultaneous worldwide release but who really knows?
But lets take a look at a couple reasons why Sony should do a simultaneous worldwide release.
- Because if they don’t, it means I’ll probably have to wait longer.
- Because if they don’t, it means Gavin‘ll probably have to wait longer. And gosh, he does such a great job with that podcast, he deserves better.
- So that I can watch movies and play games in HD that much sooner.
Meh. I couldn’t think of any more reasons. Where’s David when I need him?
