Nintendo Revolution


When I read about Nintendo’s new revolutionary controller I started drooling all over myself. I want to try it out, NOW! Unfortunately it will be a while before I get a chance to put my hands on one. Nintendo’s new controller -- Nintendo Revolution -- is due out in 2006.

Nintendo Revolution doesn’t look like any of the console controllers we've been accustomed to so far. It more resembles a TV remote control, and if at first you wonder how it’s going to work, after reading about it, you wish could try it for yourself asap … or start drooling.

This article on MTV.com explains Nintendo Revolution capabilities as follows:

“The controller's most notable feature — invisible in still images — is that players will be able to affect onscreen movement by moving the controller through the air. With the help of two sensors positioned on each side of their TV, Revolution gamers will be able to twist, tilt and flick the controller in order to aim in first-person shooters, steer in racing games and zoom in for a closer view of onscreen action.”

“The Revolution controller has fewer buttons than today's game controllers. It includes three action buttons, a directional pad, a trigger on the underside and a trio of buttons labeled "start," "select" and "home." Held horizontally with two hands, the device bears a button layout that matches that of the NES controller, assumedly a feature that will be used for the Revolution's advertised ability to play games from Nintendo's four previous home consoles.”

I was REALLY skeptical at first about the new controller, but I trust MTV's review. I thought it was going to be too heavy a change in gameplay and too physical, like a DDR clone or the infamous Nintendo Bongos, but it's starting to grow on me.

I guess we'll find out!

I think that the revolution controller and the entire system will destroy the PS3 and the 360..... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH ha
