The Revolution Controller

The Nintendo Revolution (for those of us taking up residence under boulders), is Nintendo’s next generation console (a rival to the PS3 and the Xbox 360), and is going to be released in 2006.

Whats causing the buzz is the controller. Nintendo has completely done away with the standard 2-legged controller that hardly varies at all from system to system. Instead, they have created a totally new design, which looks similar to your average TV remote. It includes 3 buttons, a trigger, a D-pad, start/select/home buttons, and (read) a 3d sensor. Yes, there is no joystick. Instead, the 3d sensor can detect where the controller is, in a 3d space. It’s like using a mouse on a computer, but it goes up and down as well.

For those old-schoolers, there’s also an attachment for the controller that adds a joystick. It is held in the other hand, and is connected by a wire to the main controller, resulting in something that resembles nunchucks (hence the name, the nunchuck attachment). The attachment also features two extra triggers (resembling the L1 and L2 buttons on a Gamecube controller, but I think they are called Z1 and Z2).

10 points for originality.
-5 points for the Nintendo DS slogan (touching is good).
