Nintendo set to talk N5 at E3, says senior NoA exec

Rob Fahey 09:48 05/04/2004
Plans for next-generation home system set to be discussed for the
first time


The line-up for Nintendo's E3 conference and stand is looking even
more crowded than previously, with a senior executive stating publicly
that it will be discussing its next-generation home console for the
first time at the show.

"Comment on this will come from the highest levels," said Nintendo of
America senior VP of sales and marketing, Reggie Fils-Aime, speaking
about the forthcoming system which has been dubbed N5 in the media.
"The focus and commitment we have on this will be shown at E3."

Fils-Aime's comments appeared in an interview with CNN/Money's Game
Over column, which was primarily focused on the other console which
Nintendo will be making noise about in Los Angeles this May - namely
the Nintendo DS, which is expected to be playable at the show for the
first time.

He confirmed that the DS system is presently aimed at a 2004 launch in
North America ("As we're sitting here, that's the plan," being his
comment on this), which bodes well for a launch this year in Europe -
as Nintendo hardware launches here rarely lag far behind the US
launches.

Interestingly, Fils-Aime also suggested that the new handheld will not
use the "DS" name when it finally hits retail in North America,
resurrecting speculation that the console will be called "Nitro" - a
codename which has appeared on Nintendo's internal development
websites.

The decision to talk about N5 at E3 seems an unusual one, given that
the company already has one new hardware platform to discuss, along
with a major line-up of new software for the GameCube system,
including sequels to some of its biggest games. In light of this, it
would probably be unwise to expect very much detail from the
announcement - in fact, it's somewhat unlikely that Nintendo will tell
us very much that we don't already know.

N5 will appear in 2006, will use multiple PowerPC processors from IBM
and a graphics chipset from ATI - all of this information is already
well known and, with the exception of some speculation over the date,
is pretty much set in stone. It seems probable that all Nintendo has
in mind is an official confirmation of these facts in order to finally
put a lid on the ongoing speculation regarding its future commitment
to the home console market.

*from IBM - N5 is getting several PowerPC central processors.
we didn't know there would be more than one PPC processor in N5 before
this.

*from ATI - N5 is getting some custom graphics processor

*from SEGA - N5 will no doubt be getting some awesome games

It has something to do with all the groups posted to, but I won't
bother explaining it to someone like you.

He never stops...he spams every group he can think of with his trash. Follow his path, he usually uses Google Groups....report him. If
enough of us do it, it may stop him for a small bit...and any break from his bullshit would be welcome.
