Elazul Yagami Posted November 26, 2005 Share Posted November 26, 2005 i dont get all the nintendo bashers... you haven't even tried the damn thing yet.personally i think it's the best idea.the xbox and ps2 and gamecube are getting so similar hardware, not to mention that most of the great (see sequels) next gen games are going to be multi platform... do we really need another general purpose console? xbox360 and ps3 can handle that market, i rather nintendo make something new, different and fun... something that would get me back into gaming again... at the same time something i could play with my non-gamer gf. personally, games were getting so similar and so multi platform, i was starting to suspect another videogaming crash (like in the 80's where similar issues had arrised) maybe nintendo can once again save the industry. btw, just for the record ( yes i know gryph answered this), but the industry as it is, would've NEVER been the way it is if it weren't for nintendo.in fact, i don't think there WOULD be an industry if it weren't for nintendo. it saved teh industry from the 80's crash.and almost EVERY idea for console (and some pc) games have a major nintendo background in it (like gryph mentioned). dpad, nintendo.more than one button NOT on a keyboard, nintendo.platformers, nintendo.shoulder buttons, nintendo (ever notice how the ps pad looks like a warped snes pad?)force feedback, nintendo.lightguns, nintendo.and more. i honestly feel like games haven't been really fun in a long time... maybe this will change things.... we'll just hafta wait and see. btw, hideo kojima is also excited (and being one of the first people to see the controller, he was complaining how hard it was to keep the secret).and they did port parts of metroid prime 2 for use with the rev controller, it was an absolute success. and the console has more than one button, it also has an analog control stick plug in (so that the stick acts as a left controller, while the rev controller acts as a right controller, kinda like the dual shock, only with the rev controller.) as well as it being turned at a specific angle to act as a nes controller, not to mention that there are devices to plug into it, AND the possibility of it being made so that ANY old nintendo controller (gc,64,snes,nes) can plug into it.... so yeah, i'm sold. but not totally... gotta see the beef first.
