Revolution? I don’t think so.

Nintendo has revealed its planned controller for the Revolution. I have to say, it is a revolutionary looking controller. Revolutionary in that no other controller to date has been so badly designed in my opinion. I was scared of the PS3’s space age looking boomerang, but this remote control design is not what I want to hold in my hand while I’m chasing after barrels playing Donkey Kong.

In fact, I would have to call this controller a button masher’s nightmare. And since Nintendo’s target audience is age 10 and under… where button mashing is par for the course to get anything done in a video game….

Nintendo, you lose points for this ugly, single handed controller.
