Touch Screen, Could That Be the Revolution’s Secret?

The Revolution is still a box shrouded in mystery and wrapped in an enigma, and thus the rumor mill simply can’t help but speculate endlessly about it. As of late, one of the rumors is that of a touch screen on the already amazing ‘Magic Wand’ styled controller. However, I believe this isn’t cost effective and thus not within Nintendo’s strategy of keeping prices low. Personally (NB. this is based on nothing at all, except my superb intellect), I believe that there will be some sort of DS connectivity for some games to make use of the touch screen where necessary. I believe this would work a lot better than the GBA-GC connectivity debacle (no cords, yay!), and would truly be a synergy in revolutionary ways to play games.

Anyways, my soapbox aside, here is the quote that started up the rumor:

“The beauty of the new Revolution controller is that the possibilities for new game ideas are limitless. I’m sure that Nintendo already has a number of phenomenal design concepts built around 3D Pointing or Touch Sensitivity for their 1st party games. Our developers are inspired and excited by the new controller’s features.”
– EA spokesperson, Trudy Muller

Either that was a misspeak or EA knows something we don’t. We’ll keep you posted.
