[20:27] gscbw5: hello
[20:27] NinRev06 : Hello again
[20:28] NinRev06 : I have just logged on and already have 3 people, that site must be popular
[20:29] gscbw5: well, the forums I saw it one has been sourced in a bunch of articles... can you blame people?
[20:30] NinRev06 : Not at all
[20:30] NinRev06 : sorry for the long reply time
[20:31] NinRev06 : But i must deal with the people i have not yet talked to first
[20:31] gscbw5: no prob
[20:31] gscbw5: I'm helping a friend through Eternal Darkness right now anyway :)
[20:35] NinRev06 : Very sorry, so do you have more questions then?
[20:36] gscbw5: well... I'm seeing online that many people are kinda sick of this information lull we're in... when will we know more on Rev? Because right now you guys are at... 8% awareness whereas Xbox360 and PS3 are around 60% and 20% respectivly.
[20:38] NinRev06 : I understand that, it annoys me slightly what they are doing but i also understand
[20:38] NinRev06 : You must see that what they did is actaully helping build hype
[20:38] NinRev06 : people are always interested in what they don't know
[20:40] gscbw5: very true... but what lies beyond the curtain is what truly interests them. The problem I see is people are making things up and making assumptions, if you guys don't give the fans something soon, things will get out of hand and people will be unimpressed with the Rev because by then their expectations will be so high because they will have fan dreams in their heads, not solid facts.
[20:41] gscbw5: I'd also like to ask, even though graphics are not something I feel is needed, will the Rev be comparable to Xbox360 and PS3 aside from HD
[20:41] NinRev06 : We have been releasing many small bits of fact
[20:41] NinRev06 : Small leaks to different places are made all over
[20:42] NinRev06 : Eventually we will do a big reveal and everything will add up nicely
[20:44] gscbw5: so far, what fans do know is it doesn't support HD, it doesn't have a hard drive (though it does support SD), it can download older games (for free or a price. we don't know for sure), and that the controller is going to be very simple compared to current gen ones (that one confounds me the most)
[20:46] gscbw5: I guess I should ask, what excites Nintendo the most about the Rev?
[20:46] NinRev06 : Ok on your first one
[20:47] NinRev06 : are you familar witht the term cube mapping?
[20:47] gscbw5: yes... it's been around for a few years... I use it for my own game on the PC
[20:48] gscbw5: many people considder that a bs bit of news btw... claiming cube mapping is a reflection technology (which it is)
[20:49] NinRev06 : It will be used on the revolution, but in a slightly different way then before
[20:49] gscbw5: so I've read...
[20:49] NinRev06 : i can't really say more because i dont fully understand it, i work in marketing not making games
[20:50] gscbw5: from my understanding, the technique can make pre-rendered game areas interactive (for lack of better terminology)
[20:51] NinRev06 : Honestly you probably know more about it then me
[20:51] gscbw5: lol
[20:51] NinRev06 : i have just been told it will play a major role in revolution games
[20:52] gscbw5: I have a question... can I get your name... you know mine
[20:53] NinRev06 : My name
[20:53] NinRev06 : may i ask why
[20:53] NinRev06 : it is *****
[20:53] gscbw5: so I have something to call you by other than hey or NinRev06
[20:54] gscbw5: ah... *****, a name I'm used to using on chat... my ***** is named *****
[20:57] gscbw5: is the Rev media (the disc) a proprietary format? I know it's 12 cm... but is it encoded differently, or burned backwards or something to prevent piracy?
[21:01] NinRev06 : It has heavy anti piracy protection on it
[21:02] NinRev06 : nintendo is having many problems with that overseas
[21:02] NinRev06 : like in china for example
[21:02] gscbw5: hmm... yet China you introduced iQue
[21:03] gscbw5: anyway... this whole controller issue, will we still be able to play more intensive games on it?
[21:04] NinRev06 : What exactly do you mean by intensive?
[21:05] gscbw5: well, a game like Kirby's Air Ride don't require many buttons, same for Monkey Ball, but say Metal Gear Solid and such... will those be playable?
[21:05] NinRev06 : Yes, because in place of buttons will be other ways to control the action on screen
[21:06] gscbw5: hmm... bviously you can't tell me
[21:07] gscbw5: also, can we still expect more "epic" and lengthy games like Eternal Darkness and such, because this whole "simple" and 'short" philosophy is a little unerving at times
[21:08] NinRev06 : I am sorry but i must go for a few minutes i will be back shortly
[21:08] gscbw5: k
[21:12] gscbw5: I must be off myself, nice talking to you *****. adios
[21:13] NinRev06 : Well bye then, and there will be more long epic games
[21:13] NinRev06 : look at the new zelda for example
[21:13] NinRev06 : More then twice the size of oca[r]ina
[21:13] NinRev06 : sorry, bad spelling you know what i mean
[21:14] gscbw5: yes... nice talking, talk again some other time :)
