If, like us,
you were curious as to how Nintendo's expectedly hard drive-free Revolution
was going to be able to compete with Sony's and
Microsoft's drive-toting next-gen consoles, let your fears be allayed. In a recent CNN Money interview with Iwata-san,
the N-man divulged that the Rev would come with an SD slot (which we'd heard) to complement its 512MB internal flash
memory (for, you know, downloading games n'
), but that it'd also have USB ports for external storage solutions, like flash drives and hard drives. That's
not going to be a huge boon if the Rev isn't going to have crazy media features like the 360 has and the PS3 is expected
, but it's still nice to know we're not gonna be left in the lurch on the storage thing.
