I stand corrected.

To all the naysayers... get a life! - lol. Hey, I'm the first to say PC gaming is the best but there is a reason Nintendo is calling their new console the "Revoulution". Like many of you out there I lost my heart for console gaming around the N64, but I may reconsider my future options. I mean, come on, we all have been waiting for something new and original, not to mention somthing to "revolutionize" video games. But I do remain somewhat skeptical, and I will wait to see what kind of games launch for the Rev and what type of games are scheduled for the future. But as "real" gamers we ought to keep an open mind ;)

I wasn't expecting a controller like the one they showed. I was expecting something more traditional. Either way, it looks like using the Revolution will be a new sort of experience for everyone. Let's just hope Nintendo doesn't flop...

First thing that poped in my mind was the Nintendo Glove.... you remember seeing on "The Wizard" with Fred Savage and that freaky boy... Maybe they should make a re-make with some new child star with this dorky little remote control. :)

What happened to the gyroscopic-tilt and holographic controllers? lol

Im very suprised by the Revolution controller, i thought it would be something completley amazing, and ground breaking. But no they came out with a controller in the shape of a TV remote. Making console gaming even more lazy.

Was dissapointed when sony made it look like boomerang on the ps3. Oh well i'm done with consoles. Pc gamer for life!

Peace

I can't see in any way that controller will be fun, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.
I guess if you turn it sideways it will be like the original.

Oh.. I HATE trackballs!

>> Re: Nintendo Revolution Controller revealed
I've been a gamer all my life.
My preferred company is and always had been Nintendo.

I like ALL games though - regardless of platform.
Any system, console, handheld, PC - as long as it's a GOOD game, I'll enjoy it.

I agree with Nintendo that something different is needed for gaming in general. Something to get away from the repetition. I don't need better graphics and the same gameplay. I need new gameplay, new stories, and new play styles.

When I saw the controller for the Revolution I immediately knew it would probably be a filure to the current gaming market. It may help bring in new gamers - from parents and siblings to girlfriends and children - but I think the effect will be minimal in terms of market change.

I certainly WILL buy a Revolution. I hope the controller proves to be a good choice for whatever games Nintendo and other developers have cooking up.


However, I do not like the controller.
I think the same functionality of motion and tilt detection could have been implemented in a standard interface. If Nintendo wanted a less complex controller with room for attachments, it could have done that with a standard interface. I am afraid of the one-handed / attachment / double one-handed play styles that will ensue. (Two controllers for playing drums/etc, 1 controller and an attachment for all sorts of games, and one handed for simpler games). I fear that games may get too weird and gimmicky.

I would LOVE to see games use this setup in fun ways. Guiding a flashlight in a survival horror game, aiming in shooters, attackingn or blocking in action games, leaning in racing games, etc etc.
But I am afraid that developers will build games around the controller, instead of incorporating the controller into the game. I don't want to have to tilt my controller to do something that should be automatic. I don't want to have to navigate menus with some grandious hand grestures. I don't want to see a developer make some retarded game just to employ the technology. I don't want to see Tilt-Tac-Toe or some crap.

A good example is the Nintendo DS. There are quite a few games that simply do NOTHING other than make you use the touch screen. Feel the Magic is a GOOD example of emplying the technology. The Pacman game where you draw pacman and let him go is a BAD example. Meteos is a GREAT use.

Then there's Advance Wars DS. The game lets you use the touch screen if you want, but doesn't force you to. It's a GREAT game, regardless of the touch screens. The dual screen format works great for the game, and isn't just a gimmick.

All in all, I'm afraid of the games the controller might procoduce. But I am hopeful of the games it COULD produce.
The look of it isn't that great, I don't think - but different colors, or even third-party renditions may change that.

The controller is NOT final.
Some minor things may change. Button layout, colors, and size/contours may be altered. But the motion detection and functionality is locked in.

Regardless of what anyone thinks, I'm sure there will be some fantastic games that EVERY gamer must try with this setup.

Well I just saw a the new controller in action on g4tv (attack of the show) and actually it might not be as bad as I thought.

Brian Stewart said it best about putting the motion functionailty in a typical ps2/xbox type controller.

It seems like it'll be a lot of work using it. I'm lazy that's why I play games. :)

I still prefer a keyboard and a mouse.
