It's controller looks like a Remote Control. It has in total (including the Analog attachment) 6 buttons. (Z1, Z2, A, B, a, b) Now correct me if i'm wrong, but most games now use more than 6 buttons, and almost all use at least 2 analog sticks. Also their, secret "revolutionary" function is that the controller can detect motion, adn replecate that in the game...
Basically, nintendo want's you to Sit there on your sofa waving your arms around like an idiot and expect to think of yourself as "cool" now some may tell you that: "Hey! you don't have to swing your arm, ayou can just move your wrists." Well you try and move your TV remote aroudn wit your wrists for a few hours? (hardcore gamers)
Nintendo is also trying to appeal to "non gamers" with the "familliar design of a remote control" Nintendo want's everyone to be able to pick up the controller and say, "Hey! this is fun." It's a nice plan i admit, but there is one fatal flaw...
Hardcore Gamers. These are the kinds of people who will spend a few hours a day playing video games. They only buy the best of the best games out there. They look for depth, gameplay, and length in a game. Also partially graphics.
Now, these people and "non gamers" don't really mix well when trying to cater to. Non gamers may not enjoy insanely complex puzzeles or 60hr storylines that hardcore gamers may want. This is the problem.
Nintendo may be catering to the "non gamers", but totally screwing over the hardcore gamers, the fans who have defended and supported them for a long time.
Hey! a nintendo Revolution. Let's play it!
Sure this could be fun
***A FEW MINUTES LATER***
Wow that was fun.
Hey a nintendo Revolution. I wanna try!
Ok let's go!
***A FEW HOURS LATER***
come on... That story was weak.... tis game only lasted a few hours...
Ya and my wrists hurt...
1) has re-defined backwards compatibility, because you can play GC games, and download ANY nintendo games from the past 20 years onto it.
2) didn't have any games shown at e3... or for that matter, what it can do, graphics wise.
3) will have wi-fi internet and system link, and will have Super smash brothers online.
Nintendo's Controller is the first part, it is a 3-D mouse that can detect movements along the X, Y, and Z axis. This means it can detect any kind of movement, and can be used to aim a gun in a shooter game or throw a football in a football game. The possibilites are endless.
Plus, you can download games from any Nintendo console made. Talks are being made with companies to put some 3rd party games for download too.
And the console will still feature updated graphics, about 2 or 3 times better than the Game Cube. While not a big leap, think Residient Evil 4 or Metroid Prime 2-3 times better and its not so bad.
The Nintendo Revolution will follow the footsteps of the DS and surprise everyone and win the console race.
"What we need is not a next-generation machine but a next-generation way of playing games. We need to propose a new idea so that the game industry can overcome its current crisis."
That crisis being is that the gaming industry can no long rely on stunning the audience with sophisicated visuals.
2)the ability to download all the kick ass games from NES, SNES, and N64 (these games kick any current or next gen games asses)
3)Better design than PS3 or Xbox 360
4)GOOD GAMES (360 and PS3 have like, 2 good ones)
5)something other than good graphics(seriously, how long are you willing to play crap games with awsome graphics?)
7)A system that DOES NOT BREAK(unlike ps3 or 360, which will break if you breath on them)
