[N]Gamer, a Dutch Nintendo magazine, recently spoke to Jim Merrick from Nintendo of Europe. The publication asked Merrick about the specs on the Revolution and this was his response:
"Regarding the specifications, we will probably never ‘release’ this information as we feel that it is largely irrelevant. While some of our competitors enjoy comparing specifications, it has little or nothing to do with how satisfied the consumers will be with the system and the games once they are released. I know people are hungry for information on Revolution and we respect and appreciate that, but we don’t want to contribute to the cloud of meaningless information that surrounds the next generation systems."
In short, the specs on the Revolution will probably not be as impressive as the mighty PS3, but Merrick points out that awesome specs don’t always mean happy gamers. Keep posted for more info as we discover it.
