Sure, itís probably a big, freaky hoax, but who are we not to fall for the work of a bored 15-year-old with a pirated copy of Photoshop and a dream?

It's just a concept made by some kid on the gamespotboard

ah, i guess it is.  Funny, I didn't think Gizmondo would be fooled by something like that.  Either way, you've got to give the kid credit, it's cool in an ugly sort of way.

It's already been released that it won't have buttons or analog sticks (somewhere).

Read the comments on this article for some interesting details: http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000410047265/

Something about IGN saying Nintendo is giving up the traditional joystick and a+b buttons.
Nothing credible.

However, you can bet your ass Nintendo has something.

"Miyamoto told Wired News, "Because the user interface is going to drive the Revolution software design, that's what's going to make our software stand out. Nobody else is going to be able to do what we do with next-generation game software. So, I can't reveal anything. It's under wraps because it's the big gun.""

It reminds me of the old DreamCast controllers...

I doubt Nintendo will give up the a+b buttons. Most likely if they need to change the design for future games they'll add different buttons like they did with the "Z" button when Nintendo made the N64.

I actually expect them to ditch the a and b buttons.  Hell, I expect them to ditch the whole current "controller" idea and go with something totally new.  The reason I think this?  The revolution has ports on it for standard GC controllers.  So you can just use those for your regular games, while using the new controller for the revolutionary games.

i dont understand the big push for a new controller, as I recall it nintendo spend a lot more then anyone else on researching the design for the gamecube controller...  Most seem to agree that its a very well designed controller.

I guess maybe their research pulled something else out???  Just seems a waste to spend so much on research to scrap it for something "revolutionary."

Personally I think its just a ploy.  Theyve built a sub standard (for next gen) console, probably having problems lining up developers as the confidence is low...  The only thing they can really claim for greatness without any proof is a mysterious controller.

Except it is usually the first thing leaked after the box itself?
I survived the flood of 2008 and all I got was this crappy homelessness.

... No
The Japanese use English words a LOT...

That's just from my 5+ years or so experience from learning Japanese in my spare time.
