Now that's revolutionary...

Most of us here at the GoodGearGuide are well into gaming. With the release of several new consoles over the coming year, including the highly anticipated Microsoft XBox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3, we can't help but get excited over the never-ending console wars.

While Microsoft and Sony have been battling it out over their new generation gaming machines, there is one other console manufacturer who have been kept relatively quiet amongst all the fuss - Nintendo.

Slipping off the radar with the unsuccessful GameCube which failed to compete with the Xbox and PlayStation 2, Nintendo's new console (codenamed the Revolution) is perhaps their last foray into the console gaming world but they definitely aren't going down without a fight.

Whilst the incredible remote control style gamepad has definitely turned some heads, what has really got our attention at the GoodGearGuide is the backwards compatibility of the system. Nintendo has revealed that the revolution will be able to play all games from any Nintendo console ever released. Yes, you read correctly - the Revolution will have downloadable access to 20 years of titles originally released for Nintendo 64, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). It will also be backward compatible with the current GameCube console.

Now THAT'S what we call a revolution.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
