"I was a developer for many years before my current role, but I've never been a very good gamer," Nintendo president Satoru Iwata told me."I've never been able to control a first-person shooter, but as soon as I used the Revolution controller, I found it very easy to control the game. So, I think that's a genre that's particularly well suited for the controller."Summing this info up, Nintendo
Reggie Fils-Aime, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Nintendo of America, said he hopes to see another type of game really take off with the Revolution.
"I hope [massively multiplayer online games] are really explored on this system," he said. "That's a genre, from the home console standpoint, that really hasn't been explored very well." (...)
"Until now, within a single household, we've had family members who play video games and family members who don't play video games - and they've been very separate," said Iwata. "Gradually, the barriers between those two have gotten stronger. ... Today, if you don't understand the controller, you're not able to enjoy video games. ... We expect [the Revolution controller] to become the standard in video game controls."
Nintendo, which has already hinted it might offer the console at a lower price, has already promised to reveal all the details at a May press conference preceding the E3 trade show (the annual gathering of the video game industry).
That doesn't mean it will retreat behind a veil of silence until that point, however.
"It's fair to say that we have a number of things that we will begin unveiling all next year, leading up to E3," said Fils-Aime.
* considers both the FPS and MMOG genre well-suited for the Revolution
* expects to set the new industry standard with the Revolution controller
* will announce more news concerning Revolution before May 9th
I also find it interesting to note that there are ´a number of things´ that will be unveiled. This will fuel rumours that there is more than one secret feature of the console still to be revealed.
