Nintendo breaks with more than 20 years of videogame 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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
