So the hot rumor for the Revolution was that it would include 3D display capabilities. Well, an anonymous former Nintendo employee says that's far from the truth and told the Internet the real deal. The controllers will be wireless and pressure sensitive in a whole new way. "It will be sort of like controlling a game with one of those stress balls," said the source. "You squeeze it and you go faster." Revolution "will also include voice control more advanced than anything seen so far" via wireless headsets. Nintendo will also introduce a free online service supposedly better than Xbox Live. "The only way I can describe it is as an internet service," said the poster. "Imagine turning it on and checking your mail on the system. You see previews and demos of DS and Revolution games that you can download. A magazine similar to Nintendo Power will be exclusive to the system, and you will be able to access it on the Revolution's homepage." As for the "revolutionary" aspect of the console? Well, that has to wait until E3.
