While most controllers require two hands and are studded with buttons and joysticks, the new controller has fewer features, giving it the appearance of a TV remote control.
This controller will be used with the to be released Nintendo’s Revolution game console. The Revolution will compete itself with Sony’s Playstation 3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360. A new feature in Nintendo’s new controller is its use of motion sensors. A demonstration video showed users shooting it like a gun and conducting a virtual orchestra by using it like a baton. The controller can also work with sports video games, allowing players to swing it like a tennis racquet or baseball bat.
