E3 has seen it's 3rd big console launch with the announcement of Nintendo's contender in the upcoming console war - The Revolution. Details are scant on the new system, but from pictures coming out of the briefing it's a departure from previous efforts from Mario and Co. Gone is the bold colours and boxy dimensions, in favour of a sleek, laid back monolith. This from the BBC:

At a news briefing in Los Angeles, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata held aloft a prototype of the console that is due out next year.

Few technical details were given about the compact rectangular machine.

Nintendo is the last of the big three console makers to unveil its plans for a next-generation console.

Microsoft showcased its future console, the Xbox 360, last week, and Sony presented its PlayStation 3 on Monday.


More (such that it is) here, along with details on Nintendo's latest incarnation of the Gameboy.
