A small Tidbit of Info on the Controller

According to well-known gaming site, IGN GameCube, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has spoken to London’s ‘The Guardian’, hinting at a certain aspect of their revolutionary controller.

Iwata hit back at current generation consoles and their controllers, again, by labelling them as complex and discouraging.

“There are too many buttons and sticks on controllers for novice players, which is likely to discourage them from ever playing games at all,” Iwata told The Guardian. “We want the Revolution’s controller to be relevant to everybody and we really want people to feel like they want to touch and play with it.”

The leader of the Big-N offered further hints that Revolution’s controller indeed may be simplified in order to appeal to consumers traditionally uninterested in complex, male-dominated videogames. He continued by stating how he sees Nintendo’s business should be headed.

“There have been a lot of games created around excessive violence in the past few years and it seems to be escalating. From the business point of view, it doesn’t make sense for us to follow suit. We cherish our hardcore gamers, but we always try to attract as many people as possible and expand the existing gaming population.”

Nintendo “revealed” the actual console back at their Pre-E3 press conference in May and assured fans that more details would surface with the full unveiling to occur before the year’s out. But since, we’ve seen or heard nothing, other than rumours, speculation and comments from people claiming to work for Nintendo.

Much-loved Nintendo America Vice-President Reginald Fils-Aime has basically said that developers have seen the controller, so its certainly likely to go public sometime soon.

For now, Nintendo will be headed on their own videogames direction while we sit here in the dark. Stick with Aussie-Nintendo.com as we desperately await further comments regarding this top-secret… thing.
