Nintendo Revolution Controller Revealed
Many of you have already read about the new controller, and some of you likely saw the keynote at Tokyo Game Show when it was revealed (lucky dog). I want to say first of all: All remote controls in the past have sucked as game controllers. This idea itself is not new and has failed on multiple locations, most recently in the airplane. Nintendo has put an additional, all important spin to the device, and I really like it. Images on the web don’t do it justice, the video has to be seen to be believed (note: it’s a marketing video, not a technical disclosure): http://media.cube.ign.com/articles/651/651383/vids_1.html. Kudos to Nintendo for staying the course on making games that are fun first and putting graphics and performance secondary.
