Ladies and gentlemen... I present to you, the Nintendo Revolution conspiracy.
Yes, this is quite long, but read it - you'll be glad you did.
Apparently, we've been led to believe that the Revolution pics and details that Nintendo has given us are fake. Nintendo even got IGN and GameSpot to play along with them.
Part One: The NintendoON video
You need to watch this video first.
It's around five minutes long. When it was released weeks ago, everyone thought it was a fake. But look at it! There is no doubt that this video was made by an amateur. It's pretty professional.
Part Two: The Revolution pictures
Take a good look at the pictures Nintendo released of the Revolution.
Weeks ago, IGN released a picture that showed the approximate size of the Revolution system: http://cube.ign.com/articles/613/613493p1.html
But look at that IGN picture! It intentionally has a grey side, just like the Revolution's stand! How did IGN know this so far in advance?
And this last picture from IGN is a dead giveaway that something is going on:
That's another picture of the Revolution's approximate size, from weeks ago. But look in the background - it's a poster for the movie "Catch Me If You Can."
Part Three: Failure to cover the video and conspiracy
Notice, IGN and GameSpot have failed to cover any of this conspiracy story, which has been buzzing around the internet for quite some time. All that IGN did was write this dinky story: http://cube.ign.com/articles/613/613578p1.html
It's too suspicious. They haven't said a word, even after more buzz developed.
IGN still doesn't even have a dedicated Revolution page. 360 and PS3 have one.
Part Four: Aries' postings
A while back, a guy named Aries posted all this stuff that he said would happen at E3. Something about what would be unveiled, what games would be announced, etc. Everyone ridiculed him and called him a liar. But then, during E3, all the stuff he said came true. Aries also said that Nintendo would play a trick on us this E3. The Revolution they were unveiling would be fake, and they were going to play a game with us; just like in the movie, "The Game".
The buzz is that Aries is completely correct. I mean, come on. You have to admit that Nintendo's details are pretty lacking.
Now, people are beginning to believe that Aries was really Reggie Fills-Aime, marketing director for Nintendo. And Reggie's birthday is March 25, which makes him an Aries...
Who else would know that much info?
Part Five: The IGN goof
Go here: http://cube.ign.com/articles/615/615089p1.html
It's a transcript of the Nintendo E3 press conference. Big deal, right?
But look. Halfway through the interview, exactly when Nintendo unveils the Revolution, the times skip back an hour. In the end, the conference ends right when it starts. Coincidence? I think not.
Part Six: The number 19
Look at this picture from before: http://cube.ign.com/articles/613/613493p1.html
Notice how horribly "The Nintendo Revolution" is spelled. IGN spelled it with only 19 letters. The number 19 keeps popping up all over the place. Nintendo mentioned the date May 19th for no apparent reason on the first day of E3 (and nothing big happened with the Revolution on May 19th). And remember that NintendoON video? During the Super Mario 64 castle footage, a huge number kept adding itself up. This number, when seen as milliseconds, converts to 19.
Part Seven: Your right brain
In the NintendoON video, it shows that you use your right brain to play games and your left brain to make games. At the end of the Nintendo press conference, Reggie (marketing director for Nintendo) says "Be prepared to let your right brain run wild."
Part Eight: Other hints
- At E3, Nintendo president Iwata says that there is a puzzle and a mystery, and they they're not showing their revolutionary new controller quite yet.
- A visit to www.nintendoon.com brings you to an explanation of the video. The WHOIS on that domain is guarded, but someone was able to trace the IP to Redmond, WA (Nintendo territory).
As more and more evidence unfolds that something is going on, I'll post it here.
We know that Revolution won't be a virtual reality device just like it was shown in the NintendoON video, although the word is that Nintendo probably made the video.
