Nintendo of America VP of sales and marketing Reggie Fils-Aime has assured gamers that the company will be launching it's next-generation Revolution console at a considerably lower price than both of its main competitors, Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360.
Speaking to US games magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly, Fils-Aime said, 'We have to assume that from a pricing standpoint, we will be substantially lower than the competition,' before pointing out that Nintendo were able to do this as Revolution doesn't come with 'all of that added fluff that a gamer, frankly, doesn't [want] - it's not core to gaming.' Whatever could he mean?
Either way, we should have some concrete information on the price of the console at some point this year, with many industry insiders expecting an August announcement, a month in which Nintendo have commonly made major announcements in previous years. Whenever it is though, we'll keep you posted.
