Hey guys got some big info., sorry if you've already read it, but I just got the ability to post topics again. Anyway, my mom works at EB and recieve ceartain info. from Nintendo to tell ceartain customer's about the console if they want to know, because they just recieved a picture of the Revo. Here is what all it said... the Revo will be built to bring the console industry a little farther away from home. You guessed it, it will have a detachable screen. However, it stated they weren't 100# sure it would be packaged with the system, because they wanted to keep the console as cheap as possible. They also stated that the controller issue will be fixed with several new feature to hit the console industry, the major one being touch screen technology. It stated that playing your old console games won't be a problem at all, with the touch screens images of the buttons of all the past systems and several new games to be released will be as easy as clicking on the corresponding buttons in the choices of over 50 buttons. It also stated that there will initially be only one console color, black, but will later be several different colors.

Well, this is the most believable thing I've heard. It also supports Gameinformers story.

After all the fakes there's been...who knows? I really doubt the controller will have touch screen buttons. Nintendo's controllers are all about ergonomics, a touch screen controller would be hard to use and possibly uncomfortable.

too bad, Nintendo already announced no touch screens in the Revolution's controller.

For those thinking Iwata said the controller won't have a touch screen, think again. He said "The revolution will not feature a two-screen controller akin to the DS"

Phalanx is definetly right there, who knows what we'll see. Although a touch screen controller could be costly especially with the wireless controlls.

It is plausible for retailers to get preliminary info on certain things, but Nintendo would never leak the function of the controller......FAKE!
