    man this in my opinion MIGHT bomb - cuz they are jumping way ahead of the game, and alot of the consumers may not wish to do this... my opinion...

    But I have to say it looks INTENSE!! Go Nintendo, good to seem them go the apple route and may everything look smooth and clean.

    With games becoming more and more complicated these days, you are going to need more buttons. Look at Doom 3, for the pc or xbox. Even though its gameplay was simple, it still needed alot of buttons. But I suspect Nintendo isn't going to take advantage of FPS with the Revolution, but rather the old Mario games and adventure games. The controllers Nintendo gave us have never been really good for FPS, including the N64 one. It takes awhile for a novice to get used to that. I think the best controller for FPS is the xbox controller and I was looking at Nintendo to do something like that but I guess they won't be.

    The setup of the Revolution controller sucks too, because you have to move one of your fingers all the way from the D-Pad to the bottom buttons or A. They aren't that close which seems like it may complicate things for games requiring speed.

    Funny who people can say worst ever if they even tried it.....
    Read the IGN review of the controler, watch the promo videos then based on them give your opinion.

    Nice controller, nice features. A bit odd... but nice!

    I wonder why most of the time those japanese people have better ideas. It's clear they didn't focus too much on graphics or all that ckrap sony and M$ are risking their money... They focused on innovation, etc...

    nintendo is going to have a traditional shell for that controller. nintendo hasn't released pics of the design but ign did a mock up based on what nintendo has said the shell will be like.

    Very interesting. At first I was like wtf? Then the more I read the more it open up my eyes. I can remeber when Goldeneye ruled my world for FPS game. I then bought a computer and AvP2 for it. I hated the keyboard/mouse combo at first. When I tried it, I couldn't believe how stupid I was, at how easy it is compare to the console controller. I went back and played other FPS on the console and realize how clumsy it was. Yeah I feel the negative reviewers here are stubborn and refuse to open up their minds to the new controller, like me at one time. This is pretty much gonna either make the big N huge or go the way of Sega. If players are stubborn like I used to be and refuse to get rid of old ideas, it'll fail. If they are curious and try it and realize it's a great idea, and the games are good with it, they have suceeded. I'll see how this work out before I decide to buy it. I am one of the few people who wasn't too impress with the PS3 or 360. It was all about, oh look at the games we got and how pretty they look. Nothing really new cept they were more powerful. Alot of games suffer because of the way the controllers were design. Sooner or later the controller has to change, I have a feeling M$ and Sony are both thinking, why didn't we think of that idea? This will open a new market for other games to move into console.

    After seeing that IGN commercial with how that controller works, I'm beginning to realize how ingenius it is. They said the real revolution would be in the controller and I'm realizing why now. The rumors about the player controlling by moving the controller are true. It's like those times back in the day where you used to throw the controller up in the air like it was going to help Mario jump farther over the pit. lol

    Hmmmm.. So much to say about this. But will it come with a standard normal controller adapter out-of-the-box? If not, that poses a huge problem. Alot of games probably wont be ported over because developers will be reluctant to redisign their games for this strange setup. Ultimately this may cause alot less games for the system and put it in a niche catagory.

    Probably will still get it though. Can't wait to try Metroid out with a pointer to "look" with. Sword slashing with Zelda will be cool too.

    I will laugh in the face of all of you who oppose this controller when I start pwning all of you in the new SSB game. It looks great and gives a lot of room to do things. It seems that many of you didn't read the article where it says that rotating the controller and such is also a movement type. It says it understands: up, down, left, right, forwards, and backwards.

    Stupid narrow minded people that want to stick to a traditional controller. NINTENDO WILL PWN ALL. At least I hope so. Sony and Microsoft are almost all about graphics. Gameplay is on the side to them. They make great graphics games and just happen to make a good one on the side.
