Ok this is new. The Nintendo Revolution Controller is a TV Remote combined with a Joystick unit.
Nintendo breaks with more than 20 years of video game history by abandoning the traditional controller held with two hands and introducing an all-new freehand-style unit held with one hand.
"The feeling is so natural and real, as soon as players use the controller, their minds will spin with the possibilities of how this will change gaming as we know it today," explains Satoru Iwata, Nintendo president.
I applaud Nintendo to try something new. Will it work? I do not know yet. More details in this Nintendo press-release.
Nintendo also published several Hi-res photos of the Nintendo Revolution Controller.
Today a video webcast should go online about the Nintendo Revolution Controller presentation at the Tokyo Game Show 2005.
