That's good, right? You liked ZombiU.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yeah, Im one of those rare Nintendo fans that can play a non Nintendo game and enjoy it...



Maybe the controller comes with a controller?

I'd probably buy anything that Nintendo makes, but still, the idea of on-screen buttons is terrible, works really bad on ios and android games

seriously, a next-gen wiimote would be so much better

Don't worry OP, I know most comments here have been overwhelmingly negative but I think your analysis was very interesting. I'm still not 100% convinced that this will be the NX controller, but if it is, this post has definitely made me more receptive to it. Thanks.

I agree with this guy pretty much...but that weird screen and virtual buttons would still suck.

They should've done that with the Wii U.



This can go straight to hell. I still don't believe this is from Nintendo itself but wherever it's from, it can go to hell.

"Since the sticks have motors to provide force, they can move the stick... but also NOT move it. IE, lock it in place"
Like servo motors? Yeah no, those can easily break. No rational engineer would use servo motors to try to counteract the force of a human thumb.



I see a lot of potential with some of these concepts, just not in the way you describe them or how the patents presents them. You've really made an effort here, it's a great analysis and I think we can all tell that a lot of thinking went behind this, but I'm not buying it. Or rather, I'm hoping it's not true. Nintendo are crazy enough to try something like this out, I just think they would loose any credit they have left with core gamers, and casuals have moved on to mobile. Making this... A thing, would be targeting an audience that wouldn't want it and an audience that isn't there.



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

The only thing that could make this work is haptic feedback; so you FEEL the buttons on the screen, even though they aren't really there.

Sounds expensive...
