The text in bold caught my attention. I wonder what deep water Nintendo has given themselves into. I also wonder if it will pay off. Should be interesting to follow.

We've read all sorts of mistranslated comments about the machine and we've also spoken with development studios that are only just starting to learn about its technical capabilities.

Frankly, there's not much to say, except that it's going to be different from just about anything Nintendo has done before -- so original, in fact, that it may buck the designs of current consoles in favor of a whole new gameplay dynamic. Sounds, uh, revolutionary. I'm still not sure what to think of the machine, and I'm sure most of you feel the same way. But 2005 is a very important year in this regard because in just four months Nintendo will tell us its vision for the console. It could be the greatest thing ever. Or maybe not. But at least we'll finally know. I have to say that as a longtime Nintendo fan, I'm pretty excited.

Haha.

Anyway, I had thought up a not-so-realistic idea at another forum when discussing the loss of the A and B buttons. It would be cool, but not so plausible for there to be a touch-screen like pad on the controller, and you map out and position the buttons as you like (and obviously save the layouts for later use).

I wasn't being too serious when I thought it up, but it would be rad, you have to admit.

Whatever advancement Nintendo is experimenting with will likely be in the interface and controller. I suspect standard controllers will also be available (if ports are to be at all feasible). The DS has a touch screen but it also has standard buttons and a D-pad.

"The Nintendo DS's greatest features are its revolutionary control schemes, such as the touch-sensitive screen and the microphone input," Iwata said during a press conference at CEATEC, a large technology conference taking place here this week. "And its other major feature is the wireless connection. With it, we're going to revolutionize the way that games are played.

This, class, is a type A exhibit of what we call "ownage." Please note the subtle bolding and sharp accuracy of the way bitwise approached the process with which he owned seismologist. It is to be commended.

Cause you know what the thing does...and you know what this machine is...oh wait. No, you then asked for people to spill info about it. That's logical.

Good question. The truth is, nobody knows exactly how to pronounce it. It can also be YHVH or JHVH or JHWH, all which are the Hebrew Tetragrammaton representing the name of God. The general consensus is "Yah-weh", however. Commonly rendered today as "Jehovah". But it's not 100% certain.

remember how they were hyping Project Reality. It was the same PR job before 2 years before launch. EGM was going on and on about how it would change gaming, how it would invent new genre. I'm sure we could dig up articles about the cube It's the typical console pre-hype for the next gen. Thing is Nintendo has lost the shine of their brand name in this current generation, and thats why they are turning to gimmicks.

We're going to start hearing absolutely crazy statements from Reggie, those people at Sony and the Microsoft PR dept any time now. I cant wait for the first wave of "OMFG WE COULD RENDER EPISODE 1 IN REAL TIME ON A PS2" and "IT WILL BE LIKE JACKING INTO THE MATRIX" type statements.
