They don't even have a REV dev kit let alone have a game ready for launch.

As for the launch itself, I'd rather have Nintendo release 3 games instead of 6 and have the remaining 3 spaced out monthly so the attention is kept on the REV and the hype and attention continue to build.

I don't like the idea of having 6 franchises released all at once.  3 or more of those titles are bound to be over shadowed and could potentially really hurt sales.

Also, if those franchises have online capabilities, the strain it would put on their servers would be enormous.

Me neither.

I think having it as a launch title would be a bad idea, considering we know that Red Steel (and possibly other FPSs) already have the FPS genre covered.

Ideally, you'd want to have as many genres covered as possible on launch but to avoid overlapping each other so as not to steal thunder.

You want platforming, racing, FPS, shooting (like top down shooters), adventure (TP?), flight, sports, fighting, RPG and maybe even a strategy game of some kind. Besides, Nintendo needs to space out the first party titles as much as possible, although I don't think it'll be as big of an issue as it was with the Cube. You can already tell that they're going to have much more 3rd party support this time around, unless Ubi's support is a bizarre anomaly and they're one of the few 3rd parties doing Rev projects.

I dont think that MP 3 and Red Steel can be described as "same genre", or at least I really hope not.

That's a "wait and see", but I think both of them will be using similar controls in terms of aiming and shooting and that's what the general market might think. I don't want to see either MP3 or RS lose sales because both are released at the same time.

In terms of priority, a Mario title and a SSB title would be ABSOLUTELY highest for Nintendo, IMO.

That is true mantidor, but gamers may view them as being both FPS whether it is the right perception or not. Also I think it would be dumb for NIntendo to flood the market with a bunch of their 1st party killer app franchises at launch, that could hurt game sales.

Actually, I remember hearing Red Steel being described as a "first person adventure" some place...

In any case, I don't know whether to expect MP3 at launch. Normally, I wouldn't, but recently, it seems like Nintendo has been exceeding expectations a lot, so I'm kind of expecting the Rev launch to be like my wildest dreams x 100.

That's cause we just love jumping on you.

But back then, it didn't seem likely that the Rev would have as much support as it appears to be getting now.

Like I've said in other threads, Ubi isn't a developer which normally pushes the standards of gaming and tries out new ideas, but if even THEY are developing something which already promises to be new and different, I can't wait to see what the companies who typically produce the new and different games have brewing...
