Via the Guardian GamesBlog, a BoingBoing post with an interesting posit. Will the Revolution allow owners to run their own code on the machine? From the article: "...the world of consoles that only ran signed code was a nice racket while it lasted, but at the end of the day, needing to get permission to run software on your own device sucks and devices that let anyone write software for them get more valuable as more people write more code for them." A nice idea, but not too likely in my opinion.
Very unlikely, however i think the Revolution will be the easiest Nintendo home-console to dev for as it uses a normal media (DVD) and has Wi-Fi so could probably have the same sort of thing that the devvers are using for the DS.
Plus because of these factors a chip is much more likely to come out quickly unlike the viper which took ages.
