Nintendo Controller for Next Generation Revolution
September 17th 2005
Nintendo has come
up with a real revolutionary controller. At first glance it appears
to be TV remote. A closer look will reveal the standard game
controls. The sleek ivory white (other colors may be available)
controller looks a little strange but packs some new features.
This controller has
been developed for Nintendo’s next generation console, the
Revolution, due out in 2006. Nintendo is hoping game developers
will jump into production. The wireless controller will be able to
“rumble”, similar to other game console controllers.
looks like some sort of wand where you find the traditional controls
with several buttons. Inside Nintendo has placed in the controller
and TV will be able to determine the controller’s orientation.
Players will be able to affect onscreen
movement by moving the controller through the air. This
could be used as a bat, gun, drum, golf club or other items.
It includes three action buttons, a directional pad, a
trigger underneath, and three buttons for start, select and home.
Laid out horizontally with two hands, the device button layout
matches that of the NES controller
Nintendo has always
pushed the technology envelope. They set several industry standards
including directional pads, analog sticks and the two-hands-needed
orientation that most controllers have used since 1985. They have
also had some flops including the Power Glove.
