A whole new gaming sensation
Have you seen the controller for Nintendo's next generation console? The system is tentatively titled the Nintendo Revolution. The controller, which is comes in two pieces, does a fairly good job of living up to the title.
Check out this demo ad and, if you're a geek and you haven't already seen it, get ready to pick your jaw up off the carpet. The controller has a motion detector allowing it to serve as everything from a ping pong paddle to a samurai sword.
I can't see myself ever bouncing around my living room while fighting on-screen ninjas. Since when have exercise and video games gone hand in hand (Dance Dance Revolution doesn't count)?
Innovation or insanity? Both? Have a look and decide for yourself.
