Revolution one of Time Magazine's 5 things that will blow your mind

When it comes to video-game controllers, Nintendo has always been an innovator. Back when Atari and its one-button joystick ruled, Nintendo devised a two-button controller with a directional thumb pad. Then came action-sensitive vibration, wireless connectivity and an analog stick for 360˚ steering. Now the company hopes to shake things up with a wireless controller for next year's Revolution console that will allow players to apply real-world physical experience to games. The one-handed grip has motion and position sensors, so if you're playing a Ping-Pong game, you just flick the controller like a paddle. Or, to shoot, take aim and tap a button. For more elaborate games, a second piece with analog stick and two triggers (for that extra itchy finger) can be connected.

Well because Time's "Man of the Year" is supposed to be awarded to the top newsmaker of the year. During WW2 its hard to argue that it wasn't Adolph.
I was just joking :sad:
I had one last summer. I was asleep for it so I have no recollection of anything being up my ass.

I can't wait to see what else Nintendo is hiding from us... and I really hope the games look decent though I know they won't be anywhere near as good looking as 360/PS3 games. But hey, graphics don't make the game...
You know this?
The thing you have to remember is the design system is extremely similar to the Gamecubes... So hopefully that will allow a jump start of the learned programming needed for the revos games. We may not see such a huge graphical improvment over its lifetime like what will happen with the PS3 and 360 but... It should help Nintendo have some quality looking games right away.

Spiffy, but remember that Hitler was Time Magazine's "Man of the Year" at one point.
So was Dubya!
