The facts are building supporting Nintendo's use of DVD RAM in their new system. Panasonic (Matsushita) is set to show off DVD RAM at the upcoming trade show COMDEX. Jeff Saake, Group General Manager of Panasonic Industrial Company's Computer Technology Group, alluded to the possible use in games. "Because DVD-RAM is a disc-based medium, the drive's player mechanism can seek any place on the disc and begin playing," Saake said. "These random access features enable applications ranging from multiple endings for a movie, to (Here's the important part!) interactive video games, to multiple camera angles."
