I've resumed my old avatar as it perfectly displays my response to the Revolution's controller.......
I can respect Nintendo's initiative but I have serious misgivings about this thing. For one thing, the fact that it seems to sense it's proximity to the screen makes me wonder if you have to stay in the same spot throughout your game. I'd hate to mess up my game of, say, RE5 by inadvertly entering some esoteric command while adjusting my seat. Seriously I don't want to have to recalibrate the stupid controller if I want to move from the couch to the floor.
And I don't know what to make about the add-ons. Yeah, the analog add-on seems kind of interesting but do I really want it so closely wired to the controller I'm supposed to be waving around like a magic wand? And while the fact that you'll have to buy separate add-on's to emulate the SNES and N64 pads is sensible from a business standpoint, it is discouraging from a fan's standpoint.
Oh and in case I forget - I DON'T WANT TO FREAKIN WAVE A CONTROLLER AROUND IN THE AIR TO PLAY A FUCKING GAME, DAMNIT!
Admittedly, I shall reserve final judgement for when the system and games are released. Who knows, I might end up eating these words and be happy as a clam conducting my Revolution orchestra/videogame. But for now I'm seriously let down.
Room for one more??
