    One lucky consumer (read: not journalist) gets to play it before anyone else. Will it be you?

    Nintendo and AOL.com Seek the First Consumer to Play Revolution

    Sweepstakes Winner Will Be First in the World to Play Nintendo's Next Home Console

    REDMOND, Wash., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Nintendo and AOL.com are in hot pursuit to pick one lucky video game fan to fly to Los Angeles to be the first in the world to play Nintendo's next home console, code-named Revolution.

    After signing up at www.aol.com/nintendo-first-to-play, three finalists for Nintendo's First-to-Play Sweepstakes will attend Nintendo's international media briefing on May 9 prior to the start of the Electronics Entertainment Expo, the most important video game industry event of the year. The winner will appear on stage to experience the new console in front of thousands of top industry insiders and reporters.

    "No consumer has ever played this new Nintendo system before," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "But more importantly, no one has ever interacted with video games in this way before. Our next home console will revolutionize how people play and experience video games."

    The new Nintendo console will open the world of video games to new audiences through the use of its innovative controller. Shaped like a remote control, it allows users to direct the action on the television screen through the motion of the controller itself.

    "As one of the leading game destinations on the Web, we are thrilled to partner with Nintendo to give our AOL Games community the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be the very first person to play the highly anticipated Revolution console," said Ralph Rivera, Vice President & General Manager, AOL Games.

    People can enter the sweepstakes between April 21 and April 28 by registering at www.aol.com/nintendo-first-to-play. Entrants do not need to be members of AOL. Three finalists chosen at random will fly with one guest each for a two-night stay in Los Angeles. The three finalists will enjoy VIP seating at Nintendo's media briefing in Hollywood at the Kodak Theatre, home to the Oscars. One of the finalists will be selected at random to step onto the stage and usher in the new era of video games. Entrants must be 18 or older.

    Haha, the irony of it, considering it's freakin' Nintendo.

    "Kiddie games developer bars kids from entering sweepstakes for an exclusive hands-on with it's latest console". :D

    Yeah, as if the smiley wasn't clear enough sign for you Nintendophiles to see that I was anything but serious.

    The restrictions probably have more to do with having the winner flown out there. It's hard to get parental permission online.

    BTW, Nintendo isn't kiddy.

    I hate it when Anti Nintendo people say that. Its the only LAME thing someone can come up with when they try to diss nintendo. Why do you think the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DS lite is doing the best in japan? And the regular DS is screaming sales over here to.

    It's true. If Nintendo was kiddy, they wouldn't have had RE4, PoP, or other M games on the GC. Plus there were a bunch last gen, like Perfect Dark and Conker. Both of which I'd expect you to know considering you're a huge Rare-****e.

    Wow, .001% of the Gamecube's library has an M rating. It's still kiddy.

    No it isn't. Regardless of what you say, Nintendo isn't a kiddy company. They have stated they have no particular demographic, and have games for everyone.

    Nintendo IS aimed towards a younger " Kiddy " audience, thought their games are still fun.

    Nintendo is aimed towards everyone. Most of them games are suitable for younger players which makes people say they are aimed towards kids just because they don't have violent franchises like Halo or GTA.
