The highly secret, and apparently revolutionary controller, for the Revolution has been seen by some third party developers according to Nintendo of America sales vice president Reggie Fils-Aime. When speaking to US magazine EGM Mr Fils-Aime revealed little snippets of information about the controller that Nintendo is so keen to hide from its competitors.
Whilst talking about the controller he said "If you just think about it, we're going to have the ability through wireless internet to download all your great games from NES, SNES, N64". Fils-Aime further explained what he was saying.
"Think about it - each of those controllers are different. How are you gonna play? That captured some of the imagination of what our controller needs to be able to do, and certainly as you get into the meat of that type of innovation with the developers, their eyes truly light up because they start to imagine what's possible with that kind of configuration, which is vastly different than a sheer horsepower kind of game."
While the mind boggles as to what that might mean, it is expected a large announcement will be made in August, a month that for the past two years Nintendo have made big announcements in. Hopefully this will give gamers an idea of what exactly is in store for them in 2006.
