Does a "leaked ad" give the game away?
Without doubt, the Nintendo Revolution has had the harshest ride from the critics (me included), but will it be released a lot earlier than expected?
This picture above is claimed to be a shot from a Nintendo advert poised to do the rounds when the Xbox 360 debuts towards the end of the year (notice the outline of the photographer’s head, ”classy”). The leak apparently comes from an individual connected with the marketing for Nintendo, but he/she/it says they have no contact with hardware development.
Being cynical, I have to say that if this informant/tell-tale/prankster DID have access to the Revolution development team he/she/it would probably witness a mass of lab rats all sat with their heads in their hands surrounded by a bomb site of loose wires and crooked circuit boards.
Speaking sensibly for a minute, given how little we saw from the official unveiling only one month ago, I just can’t see the Revolution being ready so soon. I must admit though, I do love the slogan. Nintendo should use that, real or not.
