Finally, another mock-up

Thanks once again to Phalanx for the picture. In difference to him, though, I will go on record as saying this is a likely contender. I just can´t guess what the black square is supposed to be. Any ideas on that?

EDIT Actually, I just had an idea on that myself. What if it´s a screen?

screen mmhh
why not a trackball or a gyroscope ?
assumption based on the rounded part around "nintendo"

I think it's fake for the fact that it has 2 analogs and 4 shoulder buttons, "too many sticks and buttons" ,but to humor this mockup the black screen is IMO for holograms no other use for it come to mind. (My opinon is based on all speculation to date"

Nice mockup though

CountChocula said...

I agree with Nomad, it has way too many buttons and joysticks.

HereticPB said...

Looks normal to me. To many buttons? Its the same configuration as the GC minus the triggers and an addition of two more buttons.

Hey! Hereticpb buddy, where you've been? Read here.

Although, I must admit in order to play all the other systems it will require lot's of buttons and a stick.
The Big N is either full of it (miss leadind ppl) or haptic feedback touchscreen to replace buttons could fit the bill.(My Theroy)

This mock-up looks strangely similar to a non-Nintendo patent that I came across while obsessively searching through the U.S. patent site:

Somehow, I'm still not convinced by this mock-up, but its better than no mock-up at all.

maybe the controller is naturally blurry

Anonymous said...

Most likely photoshopped...the clean white background and blurry image are fairly condemning in themselves. Check out the wavebird picture on this site:

The straight-on shot, the white background, even down to the curved edges coming down from the "screen"...it seems too coincidental. I don't buy it.

robotplague said...

to me it looks like someones photoshop skills werent that polished so they decided to blur it up. ill put money on it being a fake.

Falafelkid said...

Thanks for the comments, everyone. The myriad of buttons on the thing had escaped me - tired and lacking glucose, as I was. The design is still intriguing and... good. Although it doesn´t really match the console either. I award it rank two of consoler mock-ups nevertheless, after the Russian (with no buttons at all).

FFS, it's plainly a photoshopped 'cube controller. For the love of God people.

Fake, fake and fake. Whoever believes this is a moron.

Like Nintendo said that they want to to have a controller with "similar" fuctions or attributes as Nintendo DS.

With that said: :D!

plz take a moment and see/hear/feel by your self what I think the REV Controller might be heading.

http://tactiva.com/tactadrawmovielarge.html

The company website:
http://tactiva.com/tactapad.html


Note (see the movvie first!): Let say that the wizards from Nintendo can make those irritating lines (line flickers)disappear. Then I think this might be a very nice idea of playing games.

And Nintendo will for sure design a better looking devise then Tactiva's silly kindergarden-look-alike.

While I'm at it. Why don't I reveal my vision of what the next GameBoy dispaly technology might be. Or what a cool (hopefully cheap) accessory to the upcoming REV or maybe the one that will come out later? D

Well my idea is build on Nintendo might want to introduce their new revolutionary concept by using the stairway approach! Like letting gamers and non-gamers know how much you will enjoy more of game-experiences if you could afford the extra display. And this maybe by introducing a TactaPad-like REV game experiences but on your ordinary tv!?

Anyway. Thanks for a interesting read folks!

nintendo has invented a blurry controller.

teh revolution!11

runnin_blue said...

Do you think the reason they don't show the bottom of it is because it has a middle handle like the N64? If you study it, it very much looks like you could play all the Nintendo systems using this. It incorporates all of them. It's either real or a very clever fake. The only setup that would be a bit weird would be GC.

its not fake and the black area is a touchpad but not a screen.

maybe the black screen shines light on a speculated story about the stereoscopic 3d thingy where the man had to blow on the floating bowling ball

Tech Demo?

a touch pad sounds expensive and soon to be underused. a trackball would be more simple.

trackballs get dirty...too easy

I AM OUTRAGED... SIMPLY OUTRAGED!

On the tv show Paula Zahn now, there was the occasional idiotic rant about how GTA has made us all psychotic killers even though we're considered the most peaceful generation. Now what got me pissed off is that she said GTA San Andreas, selling 21 million games, is the best selling games of all time; not true! Super Mario Bros is the best selling videogame of all time! Retard!

It is a third party pad for GameCube with a display, so no need for a tv screen.This is the patend regarding this one :

If you look at the controller, the blurriness isn't just random. It seems like two different images...stereoscopic 3D...two different views? When I look at it I see them blending together. Also, it doesn't just look like a WaveBird...there's something about it that's not so "fake" as other fakes.

Hey, that looks like a controller shell to me.
