I'm gonna say that there's no way it's fake. Yes, it's entirely possible someone took the time to physically create this controller weeks after a previous leak... lol.

Yeah, it's real. Hell, it may be super early or a prototype. The RETAIL version could be different. It could even have buttons. But these images of the controller are real, there's no doubt in my mind. It looks like a Nintendo design IMO, and something they would do.

At this point I'm fully under the assumption that this is the real deal and what I expect to see for the most part.

If it looks anything like that then this might be my first generation skip since the N64 (never had a SNES/NES - Team Sega)... I can make my peace with a lot of things, but no buttons isn't one of them.

This shit looks dumber than the Wii U Gamepad which is...quite an achievement.
I really hope this is fake (or a prototype and the real controller is something COMPLETELY different)...for Nintendo's sake.

They cant make traditions games with this

It has to be all new
We don't know that until we've tried it, taptic engine on AppleWatch and the feedback on the Steam Controller both feel pretty good. If Nintendo use a refined version, built specifically for gaming, this just might work.

I still think about it as a smartphone with the added benefit of real sticks, not a traditional controller without real buttons.

Then the device is dead to me even before the reveal if this is true. Nin is really good at fuckin their hardware. At least this time they might be forced to go third party.

I'm not gonna rule this thing out entirely until they give a full presentation, but honestly looking like the Wii U and 3DS were my last Nintendo consoles.

Honestly, If this is the handheld, then I can completely understand why Nintendo have gone buttonless. So many people game on phones and tablets nowadays, and if they're trying to cross over and tap in to that market, then no buttons will at least be something mobile gamers are used to.

How much hate it'll get from "traditional" gamers though. ..

God damn, I usually trust Nintendo with controller stuff but a controller without DPad+Buttons would be extremely hard to swallow, even for me.

But let's wait for E3 and HandOn impressions before freaking out.

The Nintendo brand is finally over! Maybe next decade!

It's not hyperbole, it's not fanboy drivel. It is LITERALLY it for NX. Nintendo has nothing left, nothing they can reveal at E3 would fix the hole now created. There is no reason left for any one, hardcore or casual, to substantively invest in NX. Except if they want to play Zelda. Which will also come to iOS/Android at some point.

The age of Nintendo is done.

Wouldn't the handheld system be a successor to the 3DS, therefore be a literal RPG machine? That lack of face buttons doesn't deter me in that regard, but I'd like to see how they handle platformers before sending the thing to hell.
A Nintendo console/handheld that cannot properly play a super Mario bros platformer would be a sad, sad thing.

I'm getting there quickly. I also told my wife if that's the controller and it's totally buttonless like it looks, I'm out. I'm not a huge fan of fake button gaming at all. Even if they can do it properly, I just don't like how it feels.
Yeah, non-physical buttons might be an issue for many. Hopefully they can pull it off.

Sigh. And I was hoping Nintendo would go a bit more traditional to capitalize on MS's downfall.
That's what I'm saying. Nintendo can't keep cannibalizing their consoles by being way too different. So here comes another console that gives devs another wall to not develop for again with it being different from the other 2 consoles, as if relations wasn't enough.

This has gotta be the handheld, where they are the only ones to dictate in what direction to go, as they have the "crown" there. That doesn't translate well on the console side where Sony and Msoft are making the moves.

I have big hands. Sticks on Sony controllers generally rest at the middle joint of my thumbs (thumb tips bump sometimes when playing). Putting a screen in between the sticks? Yeah okay.
