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.

You can just as easily use Scribbleton to store snippets or volumes of text and quickly locate cross-referenced information. Read more

AMD Catalyst 14.9 Linux Driver Is Out, Release Disappoints, as Usual

The AMD developers have announced that a new Catalyst 14.9 Linux driver is now out and that it brings support for a couple of new operating systems and a few bug fixes. New AMD Linux drivers don't arrive as often as the community wants or needs them and the company doesn't have the best track record in the open source world. As it stands right now, there are two kinds of drivers available to Linux users, one that's open source and another one that's proprietary. Catalyst 14.9 is made by AMD and provides better functionality than the open source one, but it doesn't get updated too often. Read more
