      I've seen radical changes to game controllers, but this one takes the cake by FAR. Gamers adapt easily, I'm sure it'll catch eventually.

          I don't like the way it looks but I'll have to try it anyway. I think that Nintendo is trying to bring simplicity to thier games so that they will be appealing to a wider range of fan from the die hard gamer to someone who wouldn't normally play games at all. Making it look like a tv remote is smart because everyone can use a tv remote so that will make everyone think they can use it with ease. I also heard that the price is going to be much lower than that of PS3 and the X-Box 360.

            Nintendo started going downhill after the SNES in my opinion but as long as they keep making portable consoles, they will always be around. Even though the Game Boy Micro might be their downfall, if not then I know the Revolution sure will be.

                      When I first saw the controller I wasn't very impressed, but after watching the video it looks extremely cool. Nintendo wasn't kidding when they said this system was revolutionary.

                      Also, Gamecube controllers are going to be compatible with this system, and Nintendo is also making a new standard type controller for this system as well. So if you don't like this new remote type controller, don't worry.

                        There is an *EXTREMELY* fine line between "revoluntionary" and "cheap gimmick". We'll see what this half-aborted excuse for a controller becomes.

                        I've said this on other forums, I'll say it here.

                        It doesn't matter if Nintendo releases it's shell controller or not. It isn't being packaged in with the system itself, meaning no third party company is going to make games for it, because they *HAVE* to assume that most of the Revolution owners will only have that stupid wand. Which means they *MUST* reprogram their games to work with the wand. Which means a lot of extra work and money invested in a Revolution port, which means far less companies will even try.

                        The Revolution will doubtlessly have some killer first party games, but they just kissed any hope of getting ports goodbye. There will be no Mortal Kombat on the Revolution. There will be no nothing that wasn't originally designed to work with the wand.

                        Essentially, Nintendo just became the MAC of the video game world. Few good things, but completely incompatible with what the rest of the world is using.

                            You people should have more faith in NIntendo. Of course, the Nintendo systems went downhilll after SNES but not to a degree were they were bad or anything. Come on, SNES was a pretty tough act to follow! So much so that no other IMO no other company has made a better system since either. Don't you think it's a bit unfair to expect every Nintendo system to be better than the last. I grew up on nintendo and I'm not about to abandon them just because the Revolution's controller "looks wierd."

                              Um, Playstation systems are by Sony, not Nintendo.

                              Anyway, the absolute worst case scenario with the Rev controller is that the new features are ignored and every game uses the traditional controller shell. So basically, the worst is that it will be like the other systems, so nothing to worry about.

                                So all those developers who love the controller will make only exclusive games? Not exactly horrible. And the shell will be used for ports, Nintendo specifically made it for that.

                                  garbage. only reason why i feel any reason for this to be a rather good buy, in the late late future (when its down to $100), is because it can play roms. hell yeah! I have all the nes, snes, & gb roms. that would rock to play on the tv screen again. otherwise, i have no interest besides seeing my little brother in-law spaz out on it.

                                    Meh... How knows, the new controller might be pretty cool... or it might end up walking the "road of R.O.B." The only way to find out is to experience it yourself.

                                      Not sure about the controller because of the possibility that it might mean less ports. I might end up getting an XBOX 360 instead because I'm sick of the Nintendo systems (Gamecube) getting the shaft.

                                        You're forgetting the Game Boys, the Virtual Boy (aka nintendo's biggest mistake), the Game Cube, and the DS. :evil: Not to mention Playstations are Sony. :evil:

                                        Anyway, Revolution seems neat and cool IMO, and they're staying out of the console e-penis battle to the best of their ability and being about gameplay, so yeah. Next gen 2k6: Revolution for the win.
