Man plans to sell one of his kidneys to buy a home @ 09:29 pm

So Nintendo finally released some images of what their next generation controller is going to look like. Behold the... majesty?

I have to have faith that Nintendo knows what they're doing, but that's a totally wacky design. I just don't see how it's going to work for a lot of their top titles. I guess time will tell, but... wow!

themabbi brings this explanation to my attention.

I think I totally get it after reading about it for awhile now, I think it's going to bring FPS's and strategy games to the console now a lot easier (at least more playable) and you can still play the other games with it, granted it's going to take some getting used to. There's this cool kinda commercial/demo video out there it's pretty sweet. It's at: http://media.cube.ign.com/articles/651/651334/vids_1.html

Ya after seeing that video it makes a lot more sense. Actually it's going to be pretty ingenious. I still want to know how you're going to make a Mario game work with that thing though.

I have faith in nintendo, even though they have missed the boat in the past. From reading about the controller and seeing the demo, I think this could prove to work surprisingly well and be quite fun.

I just hope the "remote controller" is durable, which is generally the biggest problem with getting creative with the equipment like this.
