No Global Launch for Revolution

Nintendo has stated recently that they have no plans for a world wide launch of their upcoming 5th cosole; codenamed Nintendo Revolution. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata says that just because the competition might be doing it,(Sony), they have no plans to follow in their footsteps. Iwata told the Taipei Times that he doesn't "think it's necessary to do the simultaneous worldwide launch [with Revolution] simply because others are doing this." His statement comes in response to both Sony and Microsoft who attempted - or in Sony's case, will be attempting - a simultaneous global launch with their next-generation consoles. It will be interesting to see how this pans our for Sony and how Nintendo plans to launch the revolution. I will be waiting with open arms.
