The Revolution Begins Now

[Media: Article]

1up has a very good article detailing and discussing everything that is currently known about the Revolution controller. They discuss Nintendo's future, their past and other controllers that have attempted to do motion sensing such as the disappointing Power Glove.

And as much as the philosophies driving Nintendo's next-generation effort run against tradition, in many ways the company is poised to bring back classics genres of gaming (light guns, for instance) and unleash unexpected twists on formulas gamers have become all-too-familiar with -- remember the chick making Mario jump by flicking the controller? As crazy as Revolution might be, it has more practical applications lingering within than most are probably giving it credit for.

This is a very entertaining read, even if you've read pretty much everything about the Revolution.
