"no, to be honest the XBox 360 holds very little chance of coming on top. the Playstation 3 may be #1 again but because of the high price and late release, it may not have the advantage it had with the last systems. Personally I would say the PS3 will outsell the others but the Revolution has a good chance." um... the Xbox360 platinum version can do more theings than the ps3, has better graphics, and is cheaper....also the ps3`s controler is terrible, its a freeking bannana! really. Also, the Xbox will have halo 3, and that is a good enough reason for some people to buy it

The thing about the reveloution is that it is trying to please everyone...and this controler is mostly for fps...but they(nintendo) said that there will be an addition to make it look like the old GC controler(does the c analog work yet?) but i am gonna save my money for the PS3 and 360...so...thumbs down from me

hey I just did some math*ahem* its a wooping total of $928 to play the freakin XBOX 360 if you dont have a HDTV tv.and you still have to buy games!so go to Nintendo.com and look in news on revolution.they are going to have a affordable price for the system,games,controlers,etc. I dont know about you but I think $928 is way to much.so dont be stupid and dont waste $928 on that system.you would have to be really rich to get the 360 or really dumb.so finally words.Nintendo wins!!!!go Nintendo!!!!!:-D

Oh, I`m not saying it doesn`t work. I`m saying it looks stupid and I really dislike the idea of waving the controller around.

Anyways, i think the controller is very cool and very revolutionary but I prefer PS3 or Xbox 360, just because of the bigger library of games and features of the systems.

Stikfas, everyone knows you are a 7 year old posing as a 13 year old so you can post. Your grammar sucks and you just sound like my 8 year old cousin. Anyways, little kids are the ones who like nintendo because they come out with kiddie games. Stikfas is a seven year old Nintendo fanboy and his mommy won`t let him buy an Xbox or a Playstation because of the violence.

Isn`t that right Stikfas? I wouldn`t go around bashing other consoles when you are 7. Grow up and learn a little bit more about technology, and then we`ll talk.

also, no one has mentioned yet that. in racing games, all you`ll have to do is twist the controller to steer. I already do that with controllers when it won`t affect the game it all. Finally, I`ll have reason to do this.

Hmm... I`m not the only one who does that then. Okay, time to get off those pills...

ehhh, nothing to do with the controller but I started this, so who cares?

unless it`s animated, it`s called manga
annoys me for some reason when people do that

Something, someone pointed out on another site I go to. If you turn the controller on it`s side, you have a classic style NES controller.

i like nintendo but honestly this controller is just a bit too different for the main publics taste. also we dont even know how resposive it will be because if it isnt very responsive the thing will be an annoying piece of crap. and they tried the moving controller thing with a few games on the Game boy and most of them were gimmmicky and crappy

Wario Ware inc. twisted my friend Wario Ware inc. twisted.not laser but its like moving the controler like they said in the artical to move yourself.and revolution is gonna have laser I was just saying they got the moving part down.

First of all, to those who hasn`t, see the video I posted earlier. If you just look at the pictures, no impression. if you read the article, a small notion of what it does. But if you see the video, you will see the true potential of this thing. I get the impression that some people here just saw the pictures and made up their mind.

Second: wild_monkeys, the pink guy in my pic is a little character from a anime called Paranoia Agent. Highly recommended!

Third: It will be exciting to see all of this controller. Remember that it`s supposed to be used for 20 years of Nintendo games-backlog. So it`s for NES-games, SNES-games and N64-games. And for Gamecube-games there are four controller-ports on the console itself.

Personnally, I can`t wait 8-)

Hmm it seems to me that it`d be fun for a while and then get quite old fast. Personally I`d stick to the old controllers. I think what they should have done is produce the normal controllers aswell so that people have the choice of that.

For those of you who dont want to read: This is the coolest part.
The controller for Nintendo`s upcoming Revolution home console system is a cordless remote-control-like device designed to be used with only one hand. Two small sensors placed near the TV and a chip inside the controller track its position and orientation, allowing the player to manipulate the action on screen by physically moving the controller itself. For example, you could slash an in-game sword by actually swinging the controller from side to side, turn a race car just by twisting your wrist, or aim your gun in a shooter by pointing the controller where you want to fire.

BigBonny you`re kind of fighting a losing argument with that logic. Since gay doesn`t actually mean homosexual either its not offensive to you or any other homosexuals in any way what so ever. If anything claiming that gay means that is offensive to any happy people.

This is not like the gun for Duck hunt, that could only tell if you went up or down or a combination, this can also tell in or out. Get that, three dimensions. It won`t stop third party devolpers from making games because they already said there will be a more conventional controller with a slot to put this one into it. On top of that it has ports to plug normal corded gamecube controllers in. Cords are annoying because people trip over them, they get tangled, the never look good in a room, who want`s to see a bunch of cords laying around. I don`t know about you, but my living rooms a bit too bit for my cord to reach to both of my couches, so if I have some friends over not only to the cords become a hinderance to walking but some of my friends have to sit on the ground. Any other brilliant observations on why this is a bad idea would be appreiciated.

yeah, what bopoo said:

"Nintendo also mentioned that the controller stick could be slipped inside other, more conventional controller shells, dance mats, bongos, or other peripherals."

Right there in the page.

I think this is going to be great. Others look at it and say its sux. They just want the regular controllers. Whatever, its going to be great. I`d buy this over PS3 and Xbox360 anyday.

This is the first step into virtual reality. This isn`t like light guns of the past, their postition was only based on two dimensions. This uses three. The next jump from here to there would be to make your body into the controller. Not like eye toy, but with three dimensions. Eye-toy was easy to fool, you just had to put your finger really close to it.

You all probably won`t like the look of it at first glance, but thats ok, you`re idiots. Don`t judge a book by its cover. Think of playing a Zelda like game in first person, the remote itself moves like it`s your sword. If that doesn`t sound cool to you guys, then go get a bag of potato chips and sit on that couch of yours....fat ass! lol

I think it`s pretty much the best thing ever. When you first look at it it looks gay but when you take the time to read about it and actually think how it could be used you realise how totally awesome it is. Only problem is that most casual gamers like the ones who play sports and racing games and fps won`t buy it.All the previews say it feels more natrual and extremely comfortable.

Playstation wouldn`t even exist had it not been for Nintendo. Sony were working with Nintendo to help create a CD add on for the SNES. Nintendo decided to drop them and Sony got angry. Sony turned their CD add on into the Playstation and released it as it`s own console.

I`ve been a Nintendo fan for years, i grew up with the NES and since then have had every Nintendo console (not virtual boy and stuff like that) including GB, GBC, GBA, DS. Although some were my brothers consoles. Nintendo aren`t afraid to try new things. Sony and Microsoft are just following tradition by creating slight updates of existing modles. This is the next generation of consoles. Nintendo will try new things by creating something thats out of the ordinary, they will take risks and what they are doing is the next generation of consle. If we want to advance we can`t be afraid to try new things. And imagine what it will do for fighting games etc you could really use a sword.

TheShape has a point, everyone here who says they dont like it seemed to have opened the link, seen the picture and scrambled here to say how much it sucks, without looking at the details

i myself havent read these details, but thats not the point. i dont have a nintendo, never will, and i find this little forum extremely more interesting then the little controller thingy

That is a terrible choice for a controller. It might be interesting to use for a few niche titles, but not as the main controller. Nintendo seems content with digging their own graves.
