Must see!! rev revealed??


Well possibly not, but it's a decent spoof if ever we saw one ...and we've seen a few

11:12 August, traditionally known as the silly season in the games industry and the grown up world of proper journalism beyond. Yup this is the time of year when everyone with half a brain in their head slopes off on holiday and your morning read is filled with strange stories, annual surveys and all manner of tat, as desperate hacks try to fill their daily pages.

Not that there's any of that sordid behaviour here of course (ahem), C&VG trying to maintain its finest journalistic traditions through the height of the silly season, but nevertheless it was the greatest of pleasures this morning to discover Nintendo On, a brand new site which purports to show an insider video of the Revolution's great secret - it's VR headset controller.

It smells fishier than a barrelful of fetid mackerel that's been left out in the sun for a week, but you have to admire the sheer effort and dedication that's obviously been put in to try and convince a sceptical games press.

Samus, Mario, some rather unconvincing Nintendo graphics and logos, they're all in there. One of the best we've seen for a while and certainly worth a few moments of your time, if only for the cranial-loading DVD player.

Marvellous, more Revolution rumour and speculation soon.

I really dont know what to think.....

I thought all Revolution posts were supposed to be made in that Revolution sticky.

Lame, how could you believe this if they showed what the console looks like at e3! Nintendo isnt the type of company that would say, Hey look its a system the size of 3 dvd cases, and then push out some super huge xbox size system.

Though they are the type of company that would boast about the Virtual boy!
C'mon get back on your feet!
