    That picture's been around since E3, unfortunately none of it has actually been properly confirmed yet as the unit is still nearer concept than production. :)

    They probably would have said the same thing when Henry Ford launched the Model T......

    However, back on topic, it's good to see the consoles are getting launched in decent colours instead of having to wait for the 'special editions'

    And according to a source in MCV (trade mag), the Rev won't launch in Europe till Spring 2007!! That's like 2 years away!! I can't wait that long!!

    Seems that the console with launch in the US first (!), in Nov 2006, and Japan shortly afterwards. Well, seems like I'll be getting a US one then!!

    Anyone know a site doing really advanced pre-orders? :)

    There'll be 5 colours to choose from and they are:

    1) "Can't be bothered to promote it" standard colour
    2) "Deserted by developers" alternative colour
    3) "Only one decent adult game release per year" SE colour
    4) "Underpowered cf: competition" Xmas release
    and lastly....
    5) "Let's leave it to Xbox and PlayStation to duke it out" Anniversary colours.

    :D

    PS seriously though, would be interesting to see how all three would stack up against one another in "looks in the front room" department. I reckon the "Apple-esque" white revolution looks the most svelte, follwed by the whit-ish xbox 360, and lastly the hulking silver ps3

    The GC was released in black and purple with the platinum version coming out afterwards. Unfortunately Europe didn't get the other exciting colours were available and the UK doesn't even have 4 different coloured official joypads available! :)

    I find it weird that they might be able to tell you which colours that it will be in, but yet its not out for another 18 months.... if I was wanting to buy one Id shut up and stop dangling all these juicy details and just concentrate on delivering a console.

    Sky HD will be out a long time before the Revolution at this rate..

    All of these colours are still speculative. Nintendo made a set of different coloured prototypes for E3, but they pointed out that nothing is decided yet. Iwata-san even made a comment to the assembled journos that they could ask their readers which colours they might fancy, and report back to Nintendo.

    Ah so thats the revolution eh lots of colours. As though that'll make it more enticing to joe public. To be honest the revo is already the best looker, but there milking their only plus point a bit with multi colours.However the 360 has customisable fascia, which will enable lots of different colours without having to buy the same console twice. But who cares about colours i'll just buy whichever one comes first, and as for customisable fascia, i'll leave that for the girlies.
