No Nintendo Revolution at E3?

Satoru Iwata

Speaking of Nintendo, the word on the street is that contrary to what everyone was expecting/hoping, they're actually not going to be showing off their next-gen Revolution console at E3 next month. Nintendo prez Satoru Iwata is reportedly concerned that the console is so filled with mind-blowing awesomeness that he'd rather wait until it's closer to being released to show it off rather than risk competitors stealing all their great ideas. Oh, and it probably doesn't hurt that they'd be jockeying with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3 for everyone's attention. Anyway, this is still unconfirmed, but supposedly they're only going to show off a few Revolution demos and focus on the Nintendo DS (and its wireless multiplayer gaming capabilities) instead.
