    I think this is fan made stuff because is very familiar whith other controles from the consoles we have these days seems like some sort of game cube controler

    Even the 3DS fakes looked better than that. [​IMG]

    No freakin' way the controller will have a colorscreen attached. I admit it will lend itself to some interesting games, but it fails a more crucial part of a controller: it needs to be cheap. People will be far less likely to buy multiple consoles for friends coming over if it costs over a hundred bucks to actually get one.
    Also: with a controller like that, fans of wii sports and similar games will be disappointed (you don't go waving around a controller like this).

    That is a very unsexy mockup. All these rumors are very strange. What advantages are there having a huge touchscreen controller ? I don't get the appeal of streaming the game to a tiny screen (same with psp/ps3 game streaming.) I mean yeah I guess it would free up your tv screen for other shit. But how many god damn eyeballs am I supposed to grow to enjoy this ? Just seems to me that Nintendo, on it's incredible streak so far, wouldn't create such a focus on such a minor gimmick (and no, touch/motion/3D are not gimmicks.)

    everyone knows this isn't real... but if it it, it will probably go paired with a new four swords game [​IMG]

    Right behind you
    The CVG one looks a lot better:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    But then again, these mockups never look like the final thing anyways. As an example,
    IGN's Wii Classic Controller Mockup:

    Again with a screen? Jeez...I thought it was pretty bad that my brother managed to knock out a lamp when we just got a wii (and that there are actually windshields being sold to prevent your wiimote from bricking your TV). Now we have to wave around expensive controllers as well?


    I wonder why nobody has yet launched the rumor that the 3DS can be used as an optional controller. I mean...the thing HAS motion sensoring and infrared, so it wouldn't be impossible.

    When I heard about the rumors, that is the first thing I thought!

    Too bad I don't feel like paying $300 on controllers to play Four Swords with friends. Lol.

    Fixed.

    You also just provided the reason why I dislike these things. Because they take things one step further than just talks, it makes it seem like a next console is already confirmed ("okay, so the controller design may not be right, but at least there will be a next console"). It isn't. Nintendo hasn't said anything, so this whole thing is just a wasted effort.

    What's next...you're going to be dissatisfied at nintendo at E3 because someone leaked false information at multiple sources in the press? [​IMG]

    It gives us something to do while we wait for Ocarina of Time 3D.

    I believe Nintendo is working on a new Console,

    But as for this controller. I think that's a big Hell to the NO.

    3DS doesn't have bluetooth so you could never sync the thing.
    That being said, they could put bluetooth hardware into a 3ds cart so its possible they could create an addon that would do it. But in standard guise, not possible

    To be fair though, that's what Nintendo said it would be like.
