Leaked Revolution Ad Suggests March 2006 Release

Filed under
Gaming

An 'advert' for Nintendo Revolution has leaked onto the internet, purportedly escaping the bowels of Nintendo marketing and then whizzed off to Nintendo blog Infendo - apparently courtesy of a Nintendo marketing bod - that suggests that the next-gen console is planned for release in March 2006. True? That's unknown.

"Think Outside the Box" states the ad in a tagline for Revolution, which presumably is a reference to the yet-to-be-disclosed videogame revolution the console is promised to offer and also implying that whatever's unique about the next-gen machine will be external to the base unit we've all seen. That's of course if the advert is genuine, which is certainly in question.
