What is it with Nintendo and controllers? For the NES they brought out a controller shaped like a brick, but we can forgive them for that since it was the 1980s.
But then they brought out the N64 with its stupidly positioned analogue stick. It might have been an innovation that gamers now take for granted, but what a stupid place to put it on a third handle in the middle where you couldn’t reach it.
Then there was the Gamecube controller. The buttons looked weird, but that wasn’t the problem with the controller. Again it was the analogue sticks, which were in a stupid position far too close to the handle that always made my thumb fall off. Furthermore, it was housed in an octagon which meant that being slightly wrong with your positioning meant gaming disaster.
Now their Revolution controller is shaped like a television remote control (it looks more like an iPod Shuffle to me). Brilliant. Does anybody envisage this being comfortable or easy in the slightest?
“So which button do you press?”
“Is that A, or a?”
And the (add-on) analogue stick is still in that stupid hexagon! Why??!
Update again: The buttons are actually A, B, a and b. What are they doing?!
