Nintendo in 2006

Gamasutra has an overview of CNet's interview with Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo's VP of marketing:

Other points are newer, such as the VP's statement that the Revolution "will cost less than $300," which would make it the most inexpensive of the three next-generation systems. Fils-Aime also discussed an example of how the controller could be used for more mainstream games: "So if I'm developing a football game, I can move across the field, focus against a particular receiver with pinpoint accuracy and throw the ball right to that receiver much as a real-life quarterback does."

On some questions, such as a precise launch date and possible launch games, Fils-Aime stonewalled, saying only that the system was still due in 2006 and that games would be on display at E3 2006, in similar comments to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's predictions reported earlier.
