There is no such thing as making a game for the GC and then expecting the game to run at maximal values on the next gen Revolution as all of the source code that runs a game has to optimized for each particular platform that it runs on regardless of the corporation that makes it or the ability of the programers.
Simply porting a GC game to the Revolution platform is monetary suicide for the developer if that development house presents it as the best that they can do.
Next gen hardware requires next gen programs designed to run on it.
If you have the full system specs. then the dev. kit is still required but not essential.
And developing a game with no information about the targeted platform is a surefire formula to tick off developers.
Telling a developer to wait until 2006 for a dev. kit and with no information about system specs. and then expecting them to make a game in a few months is asking for problems.
The main problem is that Nintendo of Japan does not listen or consider any advice qiven by Nintendo of America(sorry Reggie ).
This E3 showed the same prevalent problems:
Lack of consideration for third party developers leads to problems.
Nintendo of Japan forgets that if a third party developer can make a handheld game in a few months for a reduced sum this then does not translate to the same facility and low cost when considering producing/directing/creating a next gen home console game as millons of dollars are being risked by the development house in the expectation of a greater monetary return on investment.
Also many forget that it is not just the next gen code that must be programmed as there also are a myriad of development tools that the development house must create and coherently apply to the next gen games; this can only be done when there is full disclosure about the system specs.
But then I guess what you really want to read about is info about the Revolutions controller?
Sorry but no such luck.
A sufficiently detailed question contains the seeds of a proper response.
Tell me why the power glove failed.
Then go look at the machine used when you pay at the super market and please do it in detail as a simple look and see is not going to spot what I mean.
There you go.
I read like last year at the beginning, when nintendo first started mentioning the name revolution (when we all knew it was a long way off) that htey had delivered development kits. i guess u would see this as fuel or something, but i heard this a long time ago. (it wasn't a rumer)
Offering a discount on a dev. kit is a long way from an actual delivery of said product as requested by a development house.
They probably have Dev kits out there. I mean Square Enix is already in development for Revolution. Nintendo probably doesn't want that info to get out so that Sony and M$ pressure 3rd party developpers to give them Rev details (can they do that ??... probably M$) Or maybe they want to surprise us ("Integrated Marketing"). Or maybe Revolution is just so easy to develop for, that you can do it in months. Who knows ? Maybe Nintendo will have to rely on 1st and 2nd party launch titles and have 3rd follow.
I don't mean that. (Russel) I mean that some people actually had kits delivered long ago. I do not know if this includes American developers but i am sure Japanese.
It is possible that ur right and i missinterpreted the news, but i was pretty sure before i stayed up for crazy graduatin party. (not mine)
