Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, a number of UK industry figures have discussed their thoughts on Nintendo's upcoming Revolution - and warned that the device's innovation alone many not guarantee success.

In a new feature published today on the site, key development and retail figures discuss their perspectives on the new hardware, which promises to step outside the standard "next-generation" battle by offering innovative control methods rather than vastly powerful graphics and processing.

We encountered a number of different attitudes in preparing the piece - ranging from Frontier Developments boss (and Elite co-creator) David Braben, who opined that the system must focus on its "niche appeal", to Relentless Software boss Andrew Eades, who told us that "mainstream consumers don't care about 'next-gen'".

You can read the full feature, which includes comment on a wide range of issues which Nintendo must address to win support from the industry for its next platform, on GamesIndustry.biz today.
