Some Revolution tidbits

Recommended Posts

Now that non-emulation news is being posted here (which I find odd), I thought I'd partake in this activity. Even though this bit is about Nintendo, expect more PC centric news in the future. :P

 

Miyamoto talks Revolution

 

Here are the highlights:

- "Nothing's set in stone yet, but the interface we're creating for the Revolution is well suited to Pikmin"

- "We're considering connecting the DS with the Revolution via Wi-Fi"

- "We designed the controller so it can play any of the different conventional [gameplay] styles" (ie the controller design shouldn't prevent porting of games from other platforms)

- 480p guaranteed

- "Even if you look at Zelda on GameCube, I don't think that looks inferior to what the competition is touting as 'next-generation' visuals." (Nintendo don't think they'll fall behind on visual quality.)

- 'Miyamoto refused to reveal any details of the top secret and much-hyped Revolution controller, but he did say he believed it would prove very popular with gamers and eventually become the industry standard.'

 

I bolded the one I find to be the most important because it seems to throw a wrench into the entire "It'll be impossible to port games over to the Revolution because of it's weird controller."

Well, there is a lot of gaming news. If you ask me, tht kind of news goes hand in hand with emulation news, at least in here.

There was this post on Game Age forum I'm looking for that someone saw a controller design based on the Gamecube's design, but it has been gone back to the Classic A B X Y scheme with D-Pad - Digi-Stick on one side, the L - R triggers, and the C-Stick remaning in the original position. According to him anyways.
