Miyamoto Hints At Second Revolution Secret

Speaking at the Digital Interactive Entertainment Conference (DIEC) 2005 at the Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan, legendary Nintendo developer Shigeru Miyamoto has suggested that the Revolution’s controller has “another secret”. The nature of the controller for Nintendo’s next generation home console was previously the subject of much secrecy before it was officially revealed at the Tokyo Game Show in September. At the event, the controller was shown to resemble a television remote control with the ability to sense a user’s hand movements in three dimensions. Quoted by consumer website GameSpot, Miyamoto commented that, "The controller still has another secret, but it's something that we'll reveal next year." The rest of his speech revolved around the evolution of the video game controller, and Nintendo’s assertion that the complexity of both interface and games is leading to many types of customers becoming disinterested in the video games market. Also speaking at DIEC 2005, Atari founder Nolan Bushnell yesterday also praised the Revolution controller, while Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima also spoke enthusiastically about the device. Participating in a three-way discussion with Miyamoto and Valve’s Robin Walker, Kojima said that he was finding it difficult to resist the temptation to leak further information on the controller ahead of its official announcement. Commentators have already noted that when the Nintendo DS was originally unveiled, no mention was made of the touch screen, with the dual displays assumed at the time to be the console’s only major departure from the Game Boy. Whether the Revolution’s additional functionality is of such a significant nature is at this point impossible to guess.
