Revolution Controller

September 16th, 2005

So Nintendo have finally released information about the controller in their new console, the Revolution. There’s a fair bit of coverage up (unsurprisingly), see 1Up and IGN. There’s also a quite amusing video up at IGN.

It’s revolutionary I’ll certainly give them that and it’s going to be very interesting to see how it does. The Japanese will love it and like always Nintendo have no need to worry about that market. However in the US and Europe it’s either going to be a huge hit or a complete failure.

I don’t like to think of myself as a Nintendo fanboy (even though I do have a Gamecube, SNES and NES they were not bought day of release but years after) but personally I’m hoping it will be a huge hit. Microsoft and Sony have been pushing the graphics side of their consoles and they do look amazing but I have a PC for amazing graphics! From a console I want great multiplayer gameplay, like Super Monkey Ball and Mario Kart and this controller makes it look a lot of fun. Add on the fact that its a tiny system (about the same size as 3 DVD cases), you’ll be able to download the entire nintendo back catalogue, it will play all of my GameCube games and it will have new Zelda games, the Revolution (or whatever it ends up being called) is going to be very interesting and one that I will certainly be watching.
