The only thing that really looked that 'strenuous' to me would be the lil Mario Sunshine sequence. It looks like you would have to keep your arm stretched out in order to have accurate control over Mario.

Well, and they probably won't do this right, they'll make the entire damn thing too easy. Can you imagine how cool it would be to learn the skillful manipulation of the controller to master a game? Kids would develop dexterity and hand-eye coordination. But certain, you can to admit, the concept has a lot of potential-- even if it's first release has annoyances. The racing game seemed interesting... again, I just see a lot of potential here and finally some innovation outside of "how pretty can I make my graphics at the sacrifice of gameplay".

I do agree - this thing does have potential. The Revolution is easily the most intriquing of the next gen systems.

I would love to see some actual footage of the controller being used in game or a hands-on report by someone...until then, all we can do is look at concept video and yell at each other.

If Nintendo can pull this off, more power to em.

Did Nintendo rape your mother? I don't get it. If you don't like Nintendo, don't buy the system. How does it hurt you when they try something different? Will it somehow stop the manufacturing of Xbox360 and PS3? You really have some misplaced vitriol. You've become a broken record, and worse, a crashing bore.

First of all, fuck you.

Secondly, suck my big, fat, round cock asshole.

Tertiarily - No, Nintendo didn't rape my mother. They're releaseing a piece of shit for a controller. THAT is what pisses me off. Though it doesn't piss me off more than pretentious asshole Nintendo fanboys that automatically say "its gonna R()CIK! because its made by Nintendo!!!!" whenever nintendo sneezes or farts.

No one is infallible, especially Nintendo, considering The Virtual Boy, the N64 (were there any real 3rd party games besides Goldeneye? Thanks) and the *amazing* online ability of the Gamecube. When nintendo gets their head out of the fucking clouds and starts releasing gamesystems that are worth having, I'll stop complaining about the shit they pull.

Who gives a shit if the Xbox360 or PS3 stop shipment? I don't own either and don't really plan to as I don't see how someone can spend $400 on a videogame machine that provides little more than updated graphics. Controllers aren't meant to be revolutionary. Controllers are meant to MOVE THE CHARACTER WHILE YOU COMFORTABLY SIT YOUR FAT LAZY GAMEPLAYING ASS ON A COUCH. If I wanted to have some kind of literal interatcion with my videogames, I'd buy a fucking powerglove or an Activator. Those provided a hell of a lot more of an innovation compared to the remote control "EVOLUTIONZORZ!!!!" Nintendo is 'implementing'.

Furthermore, have I *EVER* shown myself to be a fanboy of one system? No. So don't even *try* to come down on me with that fanboy shit when you constantly prove yourself a Nintendo slut.

Fuck. You. You. Nintendo. Fucking. Fanboy.

NOW Im being antagonizing asshole.

Nothing against Mario or the Revolution, mind you-- I just meant that being able to nunchuck koopas could be kickass.

I like that they're taking steps in in interactive gaming, though. And, yeah, it REALLY depends on how the execute it. I would just like to see whereas some skillful manipulation of the controller would make for challenging gameplay. I wouldn't shrug it off before you see it, nor would I create too much hype. The only thing that sets me off is that they're calling it "revolutionary". If it's really revolutionary, history will decide that.

I saw the video that Peepers posted, and there was ONE. 1, EIN, UNO thing that caught my attention - and made me think.. "eh.."

It was when F-Zero was shown being played and the REMOTE (no longer called a controller) was on its side being used as a steering wheel. I thought to myself - "Well, maybe as a driving wheel - OH, but wait - they make DRIVING WHEELS for driving games, and I just remembered - I don't play driving games."

Thumbs: down.
