Plain looking when compared to the Xbox 360 and the PS3. I have to give Nintendo props for giving it a slot-load DVD tray. It will play DVD movies, but it will require some kind of add-on like the current Xbox. Note that Microsoft elected to give Xbox 360 out-of-the-box DVD playback functionality. Nintendo also made a nice choice with the blue-led illumination around the slot.
But really, the whole Revolution thing is going to boil down to the controller. There is talk that Nintendo’s new controller will eschew buttons in favor of a Nintendo-DS style touch screen.
Please note that I have updated the root entry for the PS3 topic.
