Kudos for innovation, but it just doesn't appeal to me. Probably will work great for some squirelly japanese games (nintendogs) but it just feels like i'm no longer in Nintendos demographic.

I'll withold final judgement till some objective reviews come in.

All I have to do is "teach" my Universal learning remote the button frequencies, and I'd have a Revolution controller. I think it's a rather silly design, but, meh.

I just noticed something, turn the controller 90 degrees to the right, and what old skool pad do you have? Theres something in that, and them shipping Gamecube like controllers... yet the pic of this thing with its analogue side part. I mean 3rd party ports anyone? NO CHANCE! Although, think of a fighting game, with a sword or something that used the 3d sensor movements...

Interesting. I'm still going to buy Revolution since it'll cost less comparing with PS3 and XBOX360. Also I want to be able to play old games too.

I've been loyal to Nintendo and always will.

EDIT: Just read an article, OMG that sounds very fun! There's always 3rd party controller, so quit complaining.

"Nintendo also mentioned that the controller stick could be slipped inside other, more conventional controller shells, dance mats, bongos, or other peripherals." (From EGM)

What a stupid thing to say.

You shouldn't blindly base your purchases on your "loyalties".

Lots of trash talking for knowing next to nothing about what's going on...why don't you guys wait and see how this ends up working before dogging it. Just a couple of pictures won't tell you anything useful.

Why call him stupid? And what's wrong with purchasing based on loyalties? "Loyalty" means having faith in something even when it seems like you shouldn't - and frankly, there's no reason to think that this controller won't work fine. And I noticed you all conveniently ignored the part where you can hook it up to a "normal" analog-stick based controller, amongst other things. Why don't you wait to try it out before bashing it?

We all call ourselves hardware/tech junkies yet you all reject this based solely on a single picture, ignoring the possibilities that come with it. Shouldn't we welcome innovation with open arms, in this stagnating cesspool of a hobby we call gaming? Instead you want to be spoon fed the same **** you've been playing for years now. All that matters to any of you, regardless of what you say, is GRAPHICS. Well that's fine for you but it's not enough for me. So keep your smartass fanboy comments to yourself. The Revolution might suck but I'm gonna give it a shot at least.

Who told you I wasn't going to buy a Revolution?

I've bought all of Nintendo's systems they've created so far...

When did I say it was perfect? That's right, I didn't. You have to put words in my mouth to even have a response.

I wasn't talking to you specifically, I was referring to people who are going to write this system off without even ever looking twice at it. Hence the second paragraph.

Really the best argument I could see against it is that third party support could suffer. Ported games will certainly not be feasible but then again, most ported games suck (or are sports games, which I don't play). So for me at least, that's a non-issue. I will be dissuaded if large developers like Capcom, Konami, Square-Enix, etc. stay away from making exclusive titles, though.

There are ways of saying certain things without saying them in words.
