Actually if you look close at that picture of the analog "pod", you'll see that there are 2 z buttons (z1 & z2). I saw another shot of the back of the analog "pod" elsewhere that showed both buttons with these labels.<P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by MegaManJuno on 09/17/05 01:11 AM.</FONT></P>

1 word: gay. Unless I get a PS2 adaptor I refuse to accept this travesty. It's not about being innovative it's about giving the customers what they want...and I seriously doubt the majority wants this REMOTE CONTROL as a system bundled LAUNCH CONTROLLER. It's not a god damned controller...it's a fucking remote control with less buttons. I don't even like the GC controller...it's uncomfortable and hideously idiotic for playing Fighting Games having said that Nintendo has even further made a stupid controller. And I thought the N64 controller was bad. Hell, the fucking Atari Jaguar controller is a better controller than the De(r)evolution's controller. I'd rather use my 6 button SNES controller than use any Nintendo controller since. Without legal downloadable ROMs/Emulation and the dumbest controller ever I won't even bother with this system.

Okay, this is a man to man thing.
You're a picky bitch. You complain about gaming being lame cause all they do is add new graphics and now you're pissing and moaning about the controller.
Guess what?
You need to take a step back and think...could this make gaming better? could I have more fun playing like this?
If you answer no to either question, maybe you do need to quit gaming. Leave it for me and the rest of the youngsters out here.
Oh and if you feel the need to flame me go ahead.
There will be no retributions from me.

No anonymous comments? Bah.

What kind of connection are you trying to make to Sega? That whole paragraph is out of place. Are you somehow implying that the demise of Sega as a console developer was ultimately caused by their DC fishing controller?

Not at all. What I'm saying is that SEGA couldn't 'keep up' with the rest of the industry. That's not a personal point of view, btw. The DC is one of my favorite consoles.

But because of 't3h cazual gamR', the PS2 and Xbox, and to a lesser extent the Gamecube just overwhelmed SEGA. So now they are reduced to a 3rd Party Developer. That' actually hurts to say. I love SEGA.

Anyway, I feel Nintendo is on it's way there. I'm glad the machine comes with GCN ports. At least I can use that to play games on it. But I won't be buying it for a very long time as I have the X360 and PS3 to buy first. The Gamecube controller was revolutionary. The N64 controller was revolutionary.

The Revolution Remote control is revolutionary, but not in a good way. Not at all. Unless of course you're ONLY planning on getting Revolution to play all of the old games. And in that case, I have an Xbox that can do that perfectly.
