These days if there’s even the tinest smidgen of new information about the Revolution controller there’s usually a storm of controversy over whether or not it’s legit. However, this time the information comes from the mouth of Nintendo president Saturo Iwata himself. He spoke to the UK paper ‘The Guardian’ last week about Nintendo’s new console and it’s revolutionary controller. Nothing too informative but it does reveal what sort of controller they’re hoping to create. Reggie says that “there are too many buttons and sticks on controllers for novice players, which is likely to discourage them from ever playing games at all”. Apparently he wants the Revolution’s controller to be accessible to everyone and he really wants people to “feel like they want to touch and play with it”. Luckily that last comment is in context because otherwise I’d be giggling.
