Earlier, we really did have our last Revolution controller
rumor – Mr. Iwata took the stage at the Tokyo Games Show
and 50 minutes later completely blew everything out the water. A DVD remote controller with attachments? What else can
The Revolution's controller, coming in 4 colors, is a remote control-like thing with a D-pad, 3 buttons (A, a, and b) and a B trigger below. It works like a gyroscopic mouse, moving and twisting in 3D (think: Kirby Tilt-n-Tumble). It is indeed wireless, and features rumble capability. It should be packaged with one of the endless number of possible attachments: an analog joystick and two triggers to be held in the left hand.
Joystiq's Vladimir Cole is updating right now with his impressions of the event (as he was at the keynote speech – lucky him). IGN and GameSpot had exclusive hands-on with the controller and have both written – with much optimism – about their feelings.
