So, I'm guessing you have at least heard about this new console. I was looking through articles on it and I came to a site with a Revolution controller commercial. It looks like a remote but, in the commercial it looks like you can actually swing it around like a sword and use it as a gun and etc.

What are your thoughts?

That's a guess of how it might be. The image is photoshop'd.

Nintendo's new controller is out. Congratulations Nintendo, you've created what looks like a sex toy. Complete with rumble pack. Well, it was a fun company while it lasted.

My thoughts are the same as above.

nintendo said that they will be coming out with an extension for the "remote" for those classic games

I think the remote is a smart idea on Nintendo's part. Sony and Microsoft are working themselves into a graphics-whore corner while just re-making the same crap with OMG LUSH GRAFFIX and small improvements thrown in here and there. At least Nintendo is trying to make games more interactive with a gyroscopic, lightgun/powerglove ish controller that will get the player slightly more involved than just drooling at the screen while wiggling their thumbs around. But you know, thats just my opinion laugh.gif

i agree. it does look like a sex toy ph34r.gif

at first, I kinda thought that nintendo had screwed everything up. but now, after I thought about it, I think that the controller is going to be better then it looks.

At first, when I saw the controller, I was like "Wtf?! That's so stupid!!!" then I read about all the features and...I'm excited >D It seems like playing games may be a whole new experience, and you can have a lot more fun. *Personally wishes to decapitate someone with a remote*

That is exactly the same thing my brother and I were thinking when we first saw the controller. It would be so cool playing a Zelda game or something and using the controller like a sword!
Dingbat
I went WTF? the first time I saw it. But then I started thinking of the different possibilities you can do with this controller. It can be used like a remote, sword, normal controller, etc. It's a great piece of multi-purpose controller! Plus it looks so odd that you can't help but love it XD

It's better than that Boomerang you call PS3 controller...
Blitz
What the hell is with the PS3 controller?! o_O I like Sony but that looks mighty strange to me.
Heartless_Soldier
When I first saw the remote thing I had the same reaction as you guys. Now that i saw the remote and the controler I think its a great idea. However since the controler is basicly two seprate parts what happens when one part breaks? Will they be the two parts sepratly incase of this incident. Na they wouldn't. You would have to buy whole nother controler. Man that bumer. Oh well still can't wait for Revolution to come out. smile.gif

Ah...the boomerang thing? I'm kinda mad that they changed it...The PS1 and PS2 controllers were my favorite. They were so comfortable and easy to manage!

I know, so easy to hold! ohmy.gif

Anyway.... rolleyes.gif on the topic of the Nintendo controller: It looks a little fun biggrin.gif, eh, what Dingbat said. Think of the possibilities.

Though I thought the commercial was a bit too flashy ^^.

Any controller where I can flail around in front of my tv and look like an idiot while playing video games is going to be so much fun XD I am so getting one XD Imagine playing racing games or something with it! Just wiggle the thing and your car moves..or something like that XD
CRAP ALCHEMIST
I don't think you have to use the remote. Ive seen pics that show you that you can slide the remote into the top of the "regular" controller, and then just use the controller to play instead.
