  • Nintendo Finally Reveals Controller for the "Revolution"

    QUOTE
    As you read this, Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata has just wrapped up his keynote speech at this year's Tokyo Game Show. While the bulk of the conference will be brought to you by GameSpy's intrepid editors later this evening, we're pleased to be able to share the very first official information and images of the brand new Nintendo Revolution controller. The device looks like any TV remote control at first glance, but once you understand that it will be fully motion sensitive, things start to get very interesting indeed.

    The controller will also act like a pointing device for a display (i.e. TV) and it can detect where you are aiming it and how you move it -- not unlike a light gun peripheral. A good working example of this functionality would be imagine, say, a first-person shooter game where the character moves to the left and right as you move the controller accordingly. While it might be hard for some people to swallow the design -- it's so non-traditional -- we'll just leave it up to Nintendo to prove why its new controller will be a success. Take a look at the hot new images and get the full official scoop in the following press release.

    TOKYO, Sept. 16, 2005 - Every gamer who plays. Every one who used to play. Even those who have yet to play, Nintendo is your bet.

    As the cornerstone of his speech today at the Tokyo Game Show's annual event, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata elaborated on the theme of the company's aim and proven ability to broaden the population of video game players. Two shining examples highlighted in his keynote include the smash-hit sales of the highly innovative Nintendogs game for the portable Nintendo DS system, and the new controller that will be central to the company's upcoming console system, code-named Revolution.

    Nintendo breaks with more than 20 years of video game history by abandoning the traditional controller held with two hands and introducing an all-new freehand-style unit held with one hand.

    The intuitive, pioneering interface allows players to run, jump, spin, slide, shoot, steer, accelerate, bank, dive, kick, throw and score in a way never experienced in the history of gaming.

    "The feeling is so natural and real, as soon as players use the controller, their minds will spin with the possibilities of how this will change gaming as we know it today," explains Satoru Iwata, Nintendo president. "This is an extremely exciting innovation - one that will thrill current players and entice new ones."

    When picked up and pointed at the screen, the controller gives a lightning-quick element of interaction, sensing motion, depth, positioning and targeting dictated by movement of the controller itself.

    The controller also allows for a variety of expansions, including a "nunchuk" style analog unit offering the enhanced game-play control hard-core gamers demand.

    The response from all major publishers worldwide has been extremely positive. Beyond its other innovations, the new controller gives third parties flexibility, allowing them the option to use as many or as few of the controller features as they desire. In addition, incorporated technology will easily allow games from the NES, SNES, N64® and Nintendo GameCube generations to be controlled in familiar fashion.

      I think it's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.... Innovative? Yes. Practical? Doesn't look like it, but I guess we'll see.

          i'm a huge nintendo fan, and i don't see how anyone can think this is a good idea. the right hand just has way too many buttons, and they're nowhere near each other. you can't be looking at the controller when you're playing games. this is the equivalent of memorizing every buttons position on your TV remote.

          i was really looking forward to the Revolution, too. they need to rethink this.
