The dirt on Nintendo's next-gen Revolution console?

There's already been at least one dodgy "leak" before about the Revolution, but supposedly the same tipster who dished some reliable early dirt on the DS has also given up some details about Nintendo's next-generation game console. Here's what this guy is claiming:

  • That Nintendo is building gyroscopes into the controllers, presumably to add some sort of motion-control aspect to games.
  • The console will have dual processors and built-in broadband (we're assuming Ethernet, but maybe also WiFi?).
  • There are no plans to connect the DS to the Revolution, but there could be some integration with the Game Boy Evolution.
  • The Revolution will have four controller ports, a hard drive, and support for high-resolution displays and Dolby Digital 5.1 channel surround sound.
  • The console will be backwards-compatibility with GameCube games, and in what would only be a swipe at Sony, its drive will use HD-DVD, rather than Blu-ray, discs.
  • The console will launch with a new Mario game (of course), and there is a new Zelda game in the works.
  • There's some teaser stuff at the end about how the truly "revolutionary" part of the new console is going to be something that "is nothing new technically speaking. It's just something that hasn't really been applied to video games before." The tipster also claims that his source would only tell him that "touching is good but feeling is better."

We're not even going to front that this stuff is all for real or not—we simply won't know for sure until Nintendo unveils this thing at E3.
