Images of the NX Controller Surfaces!

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Images of the NX Controller Surfaces!

It's real. It has to be. Iwata did say totally new concept. I hate to admit it but...this is what it is. Maybe it's just the portable unit or something. God help us all.

Look at the laptop's keyboard in the OP, it's from a Swedish or Finnish developer. Swedish/Finnish keyboard:

God, please, let it NOT be real. Was really pumped to get a NX, but this controller does not bode well for core gaming... Well, gonna keep my ps4/n3ds for a while... Still, 1) it might be fake 2)it might be true but good... E3 is gonna be interesting this year

I just dont get it. It's a worse, nerfed gamepad.

It would be the most simple controller on the market since the Wii remote. That alone would make up for any (unfounded) hardcore gamer fears. People know smartphones and touchscreens. They are used to them. The very fact that hardcore gamers are scared to death by these images shows how much potential it has to capture the mass market.

Of course, we have no idea if that even is the controller at this point so it's all speculation anyway. 



Yup, looks horrible as the first image.
Also looks made to make your hands hurt, but that has to come with actual experience, maybe it doesn't.

Isn't being able to tactilely know where the buttons are important? This cannot be the controller for a home console. It would be insane.

I'm gonna wait for Nintendo to officially say something first, and I suggest all of you do that as well.

I would be extremely be extremely concerned right now but remember the Wii U gamepad prototype also had circle pads instead of sticks so hope to god that'll be the same case here.



Oh look, another failed novelty. It would be totally awesome if Nintendo focused on games and a solid piece of hardware to play them on.

^ this.

Nintendo is just aiming for the more casual crowd, they need to grow their fan base.
