Iwata: Revolution may fall behind PS3

July 4th by Neil Long

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has admitted that Revolution may follow PS3 to market.

Speaking in a recent shareholders meeting, when questioned about Revolution’s launch date compared with Sony’s PS3, Iwata said: “There is no possibility that the Revolution's launch will fall behind by too much, but there might be some small changes.”

Iwata’s comments casts doubts on Nintendo’s previous assertion that it would not be last to market with its next-gen hardware.

Nintendo has been typically mysterious in terms of finalising details of the console, and with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 set for launch by the end of the year and the possibility of Sony’s PS3 hitting as early as spring 2006, the Japanese giant is under pressure not to lose significant ground to its rivals.
