I read somewhere that the entire Nintendo library will be downloadable.  No cartridges needed!  Pretty crazy.  I might just need to get a Revolution just so I can play Mike Tyson's Punch-Out again.  Little Mac RULES!!

At the Nintendo press conference they did say that indeed the entire Nintendo library from the NES to the N64 will be available for download. I must say that's a brilliant move by Nintendo. I just wonder what the pricing will be.

That might have sold me on a Revolution, sounds like its almost like iTunes/iPod like in the fact that you can download/access games through their servers

I really love that idea and its something a long time coming.

It is a really cool idea.  I remember wasting hundreds of hours playing Tetris Attack at my fraternity house in college.  If they offered on-line multiplayer for that... I mean wow.  Nothing would be more fun that playing that with my Brothers again.   ;D  Ooooo... and Bomberman!

Oh yeah, Nintendo just through a massive uppercut.  If that holds true I'm all about it.  I'm really torn since I generally only get one system to start and if I'm able to down the road, I'll buy another. 

Not sure what I'll likely do...  At least there's time.

I think Sony has lost some credibility now that it's been confirmed that the PS3 "game play" footage that they have been touting from E3 is really pre-rendered movies. It should be remembered that Sony did the same thing before the launch of the PS2. I think it was a little effort to steal some thunder from the Xbox360.

The Unreal demo and the Fight Night demo were explicitly described as rendered real-time, and demonstrated to be such.  The other stuff was a mix of prerendered and rendered.  They really didn't show much "game play" honestly.  What do you think was presented as game play footage that was really prerendered?

I think the xbox faithful are just grasping at straws.  Their presentation was so disappointing that they gotta try to find fault with others.
