The end of Nintendo!

Nintendo will be releasing the Revolution sometime in my life. I will never in a million years own this system! "Why", you ask? "Have you seen the controller?", I reply.

This little gem would be best served as a digital rectal thermometer. And I would use it then. But since it is a super-idiotic design for a game controller I will not use it.

From Wired:
"Its Japanese designers call it a "game remote control." Nintendo's American employees have taken to calling it "freehand style." Whatever you call it, the controller -- which uses motion-detecting hardware to pinpoint its distance from the screen, location in the room, and even pitch and yaw -- promises a whole new way to play console games."

I DO love the main console though! Very sexy!


You can go to kotaku.com for more details and links to this marvel of modern retardedness.

There's also a paper origami version if you want to see how it will look in your hands.
