This week at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco, Nintendo released the first solid details about their next console, codenamed Revolution. So far, we know that it will be a.) backwards compatible with the Gamecube and b.) come with WiFi technology installed, standard.

The first item of news means that the Revolution must have something resembling a traditional gamepad, or at least facility to have one attached. The second item means that Nintendo may finally be getting serious about Internet gaming.

More Internet gaming love was spread with verification that WiFi-enabled titles are being released for the DS in the near future. Of course, nothing concrete has been specified yet, but there were hints that use of Nintendo's online gaming network would incur no extra fee, which would be wonderful. I've heard so much praise of Xbox live, but very few people bemoaning its monthly fee. As a part-time PC gamer, I'm far too used to playing online titles for free, and I don't think I'd ever consider online console gaming if it didn't afford me the same luxury.

Meanwhile, New York is still really damn cold.
