    Iawata has hinted (or as good as said) that the Revolution will be comming out around-about Thanksgiving in the US first :(

    Bang goes my idea about a stealth unveiling/launch at E3 !!!

    You're living in a dream world. We are talking about the same Nintendo aren't we? They wouldn't release the rev as a stealth launch. Surely launching in the US first is a no brainer?

    Dunno but DS has released in UK just 2 weeks(?) after Japan & US launch which Nintendo have never done it before so hopefully, it will be another one.

    The DS was launched Nov in the USA & Japan and March for Europe. Nintendo have said that they are going to release into the 3 markets as close together as possible. I don't see why this can't be done, their tech should be easier to manufacture than Sony & MS.

    Well hopefully they'll try and get all 3 out as close to Christmas as possible then, that'd be good.

    The register has a quote from Nintendo saying it will be out in the U.S. by Thanksgiving, and hinting that it will be a lot cheaper than the 360 "Even if it's a superb machine, it's not going to sell if it's ¥50,000 (£246/$433). We plan to make [Revolution] an affordable price."

    MKy guess would be "affordable" in that context probably means sub £200/$300 (and hopefully sub £150)
