Nintendo does it again and makes something crazy and awesome. I love how they're the only company that has to balls to try something different.

I think the Revolution is going to kick major ass this next generation. You can't even compare it to the ps3 and xbox 360. It's so different.

Bravo Nintendo!

That's what I thought first when I saw the pictures, but after reading what it actually does... I just realized this is going to open a whole new level of interactivity.

It's about time things are going to change. I'm getting bored of the same game shit. I really could care less about Xbox and playstations "better graphics".

Can you imagine playing a huge sword fighting game online using that tv-remote shaped controller? Swinging that thing around and stuff like a sword, haha omg, this is going to be amazing!

Yeah that's pretty cool. However, I think a lot of people will just say: That's strange. I'll buy an Xbox instead. It's more regular, and It's got good graphics. They're wrong though. What's the point of buying an Xbox 360?
It's basically the same as Xbox, but there's better graphics. I'm really looking forward to this.

Yeah seriously, I don't see the big deal with game graphics anymore.

When graphics went 2d from 3d, that was a huge jump and provided many new opportunities for the gameplay, but now we can only enhance those 3d graphics so they can look better. Whoopty doo. It's a cool idea but it's pretty lame to make that like the main thing to focus on this next generation.

This Nintendo controller provides so many new opportunities. Did you see all of those things in the teaser video? People were conducting music, cooking, EVEN FISHING! This is absolutely insane.

I'm really liking it. I just hope that revolution doesn't lean so much towards a younger audience. I like a lot of games like GTA and Max Payne, so hopefully they won't shy away from games like that, like they did with the cube.

Nintendo have a tendency to come up with some really great ideas that they never come anywhere close to using to their full potential. It seems neat but I have a feeling it won't be as interesting as it could be. Plus I'm not a fan of wireless controllers...Xbox 360 is the same way if I'm not mistaken.

note: they also have "shells" for the controller. one they've revealed is a gamecube shell. it's basically a hollowed out gamecube controller that the revolution controller slides into then you use the buttons and such from the gamecube controller... so yeah.

Man I'm like the only one who thinks the gamecube wasn't focused on a younger audience AT ALL. There were a few games you might say that looked "kiddy" but fuck, there's quite a few HARD games like that where no kid could be able play. When it comes to the mature games for gamecube, it's kind of funny how there was nudity for BMX XXX on the gamecube version but ps2 version had it edited out. It's also kind of funny how there was that moaning sex scene in Killer 7 on the gamecube version but ps2 version had it edited out.

There's also plenty of mature titles for the gamecube such as Eternal Darkness and the resident evil series. I love survival horror games, one of the main reasons I bought a gamecube :)

Also guess what? A Mario game was rated T! SSBM! :eek:

Anyways, Nintendo said they're not just trying to get the revolution towards the gaming audience. Your parents are probably going to want to play the revolution too. Also think of all the things you could do in an adult game for the revolution lmao.

But really, this whole mature thing is stupid. Blood, sex, swearing and violence doesn't make a game better at all. Well it does for most of the casual gamers I guess but fuck them.

Oh yeah, I really hope when you buy a revolution, it already comes with the shells and all the other attachments. If not, I hope they sell them cheap or else 2006 is going to be a very expensive year :(

Even though I love the gamecube controller, I hope the shell is going to look different than ign's mock-up. Guess we'll just have to wait to see.

personally, I have a GC and an Xbox, and i thought about which of the next-gen consoles to get...but after seeing the shots of the new NR controller, its not gonna be Nintendo's effort.
It looks like the mutant cross-breed of a Dreamcast and Gamecube pad. neither of which was anything special, if anything it signifys that it will be odd too hold and feel cheap.
Nintendo do make some 'crackin' games and hardware, but going off which companies still make exclusive games for Nintendo, it looks like Nintendo loyalists will have to make do with mostly sequels to past 1st party greats and multi-platform games. What with Resi4 appearing on other consoles in a matter of weeks, it seems unlikly that resi5 (if there is one) wont follow suit.
What clinched my deal with the big green X, was the fact that Rare jumped ship. Perfect Dark Zero and PD2 on there way, as well as Banzo Live & Re-loaded. Who knows what Rare could 'Re-vamp' admittedly not totally new, but Jet Force Gemini would be another good 'N

I wouldn't want a Revolution because I tend to move a lot when I play video games. Do you know how annoying it would be to accidentally move the controller and change the entire direction you're going in? I think I'll stick with the PS3, Sony's never done me wrong.

09-17-2005, 09:03 PM
I'm pretty sure it only changes direction when it's supposed to, so your controls stay in place.

It says the controller resonds to movement, including depth and tilting. I'd be screwed if I were to use it because I never keep my controller in one place while playing unless it's a game where you have to time button presses perfectly.

Look at it this way: with Gamecube, most games had the option to turn rumble on or off. Maybe Revolution games have this option with controller sensitivity.

how fucking absurd. had an argument about this crap in irc last night. conclusion? nintendo is trying to hard too come out with new shit, that doesnt get it done for them. people go on and on about them being innovative. when was the last time they created a good game series, that wasnt mario or zelda?

honestly. as for the people saying x360 is just gonna be xbox with better graphics. youre wrong. free xbox live. xbox live shits all over ANY other online consoles capabilities. i like the fact that every x360 game will have custom soundtracks. the hard drive is a huge plus for it as well. from what ive checked out, theyre gonna have an addon keyboard that hooks onto the controllers, and it comes with a cam.

nintendo needs to give up on making consoles. the only thing they should be doing is hand helds, and games. even the hand helds are a bit iffy. if the psp can expand and sony keeps working on it, theyll rape nintendo there too

nintendo revolution online > xbox live

If Nintendo can pull this off, online play is going to kick so much ass. Sword fights? Boxing? FPS? FPS games are going to be so much cooler with that controller. It kind of sucks for xbox because they were like the fps genre. Nintedo is going to rule it this next generation. All those people in the articles that got to demo the controller said it's fucking awesome. Oh my god, I'd do anything for another goldeneye 64 with that controller.

The only thing I'm worried about is if the controller will lag. Like what if you move it too quick and it doesn't respond. I'm pretty sure Nintendo will make everything perfect though. They've been working on the revolution ever since the damn gamecube came out geez.

and by the way, you're just talking about what the xbox 360 can do. "It has an addon keyboard, comes with a cam, etc..." Who fucking cares? A console needs good games and when I think of xbox, all I think of is Halo and that doesn't do much for me. Meh... I guess it'll have good 3rd party support though. I don't know, I just always like the exclusives.

It sucks, I sound like an xbox hater don't I? The real gamers out there like all 3 consoles. Maybe I'll get there some day :)

Just one question. Is Revolution Online free? I'm asking because I don't want to pay to play Super Smash Bros. Revolution (sequel to Melee) online.

Yep, it's free and will hook up right out of the box. The reason why Nintendo didn't like online gaming that much in the past is because it was too complicated and you had all those monthly fee's and stuff.

By the way, I wonder how the hell you're going to play super smash brothers revolution with that controller?? Maybe it requires the shell. It'd be kind of cool to see what you do when using that tv-remote controller though.

edit: haha they need some type of name for that controller because I keep calling it the tv-remote controller. Haha oh well.. everybody thinks it's weird at the beginning but later on they'll get used to it and love it. Just like the n64 weird shaped controller.

Worst kind of fanboy? Fuck no, I just dislike xbox because the games I play on it are boring to me. Xbox is the perfect system for all of the casual gamers. Blood, sex, profanity, violence... it's the 4 things a game HAS to have for the casual gamer. Haha seriously, the worst type of fanboy is the xbox fanboy. As for sony and nintendo fanboys, meh.. I hardly hear as much whining as there is compared to xbox fanboys.

It's weird, when it comes to the rev controller, you either love it or hate it. I've never heard a good reason why a person hates the controller yet though. I mean, why the hell would you want to exercise and actually feel like you're part of the game anyways :rolleyes: ?

Man, this could be the best thing that happened to gaming since games. Or it could not. I guess we'll just have to wait :)

Alright then, I guess I'll just be some 14 year old retard this next generation who's playing a huge awesome online game of star wars lightsaber battles with the new revolution controller, while you're sitting there playing a huge awesome online game of halo 84th edition with more improved graphics and some online shizzle. OmGz!

Really, I wish microsoft would do something different. I just don't see the point in buying an xbox, it's just like the playstation.

by the way, the IGN shell controller for the revolution is just a mock up. It's not the real thing, I hope you people realize that.
