Nintendo to Offer 1000 Classic Games

Nintendo Revolution, the next generation console from Nintendo, is going to rely pretty heavily on the past. The company plans to offer 1000 classic games from Sega and Hudson Software and makes it available to download using its online service called the Revolution Virtual Console.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata in a keynote speech at the Game Developer Conference said that classic games are brand new for young player, where for older players those classic games will bring back their memories.

Nintendo has to be innovative to gain its position back as a leader in game industry, before the crown was taken by Sony PlayStation. Overall, Sony has sold 101 million PlayStation 2 worldwide, following by Microsoft's Xbox which made 24 million sales. Meanwhile, Nintendo's GameCube has sold just 21 million.
