I must say that I'm very excited by this, the possibilities are incredible. Hats off to Nintendo for completely revolutionising how we are going to interact with consoles. Ahem.
Think about it, you'll be able to simply select stuff by using a lightgun-ish remote control. I can see already how that can be applied to an FPS, and it might actually make Metroid playable (I hate the strafing). It actually made me say, for the first time "Hmmm, might be worth looking in to".
No crappy fob-off like the PS3 controller, which looks very uncomfortable, or the Xbox2 one which is the current one but white. Also, put the Revolution controller on it's side and you have an NES pad! Awesome!
Nintendo, I tip my cap in your direction (whichever way Japan is. Right, I think).

Naturally I don't know for certain. But Sony aren't ready to release it just yet. I mean come on, the "spring" announcement was merely there to prevent people interested in the 360 from buying it and waiting just a few months for the next one.
I predict the PS3 and Revolution will hit over here at around Christmas time.
And as for the release of the console, I've seen nothing actually saying that it was due out pre-E3. Quite why Sony and Nintendo have kept so schtum about the launch dates intrigues me.
Did you sneak into the Sony offices with your Nintendo hat on and listen into their conversations? Burn the blueprints of the PS3 design?
"they won't, mwahahahah"

Sony won't release their console before E3. They say they will... but they won't.
Meh, that'll probably change in the future.
I just hope Nintendo don't make things too revolutionary, people usually get put off by stuff ahead of its time.
