Nintendo Revolution controller: You WON'T look like a huge nerd!




Okay, I lied - you WILL look like a huge nerd. But you're going to be having so much fun you won't even notice. (G) Just watch the video:

I am so jazzed about finally having a new kind of controller. I thought the dual-shock was absolutely brilliant when it came out... TEN YEARS AGO! Since then we've had almost zero actual progress. Frankly, if it weren't for Nintendo releasing the Wavebird wireless controller, we really would have had zero progress.

The only way I think the Revo-mote could be better would be if it could incorporate some kind of extremely precise motion tracking, like the Gametrak. Too bad, the Gametrak guys had the idea first and even made working hardware... but once again we see that IT'S THE GAMES, STUPID! Every time I look at Zelda: Twilight Princess it looks more and more fun. Come on Nintendo, unleash the Revolution already!
