In a surprise announcement during Satoru Iwata's keynote speech at GDC 2006, it was announced that the Revolution would also play over 1000 Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx-16 games with it's virtual console. Whaaa? So in addition to all Nintendo games from the NES to N64, you can also play classics from other consoles. The sky is going to implode.
  • Zelda DS: It's Another Item Name
A new Zelda is coming other than Twilight Princess, this time in classic 2D top-down view for the Nintendo DS. It will feature Wind Waker 3D graphics, though. Best of all, this new game (Being titled The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass) is being developed by Nintendo, not the Minish-cappers over at Capcom's Flagship. It may even come out before the end of 2006.
