1Up is running a feature where they analyze the current hype, the machine, and how the launch will go for the Nintendo Revolution. The piece goes on to say:

"Love it or hate it, the U.S. launch of the Nintendo DS was packed with games specifically pointed at the Western audience: Spider-Man 2, Madden '05, Asphalt Urban GT.& OK, maybe some of these should never have been released, but here's the point: Nintendo can, if pressed into action, mobilize third-party publishers to have launch games readied."

That's the most important thing for the Revolution: third-party support. If the Revolution can maintain a steady stream of third-party releases then we'll see a much more drastic shift toward Nintendo when it comes to market dominance.

"
At any rate, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has told a Japanese newspaper that he sees the Thanksgiving holiday as being an important target to hit in the U.S. market, so we're probably assured that Revolution will be out by then. In stark contrast to Sony's usual method, the Japanese release may actually come slightly later, as with the Nintendo DS in 2004."

Who do you guys think will get the revolution first: America or Japan?
