Exposing the Revolution Answers Questions

You can see what he answered here: Exposing the Revolution

Here is a quote from his latest article

The controller, whilst not straying far from the GameCube's design, has been given a visual upgrade, making it on the whole more "sleek" and supposedly more attractive to casual gamers. The Z-trigger has been moved under the controller, returning to more of a trigger then the GC's controller. There is now a left trigger as well. The buttons have been made to look less like candy, and the analogue stick has been made lower and wider.. It looks very cool. The C-Stick has been replaced, in it's place is kind of egonomic trackball, which you can control with your right finger much like a mouse. The way it was displayed in the video made it look very easy to use, but not having held the controller myself I can't really comment much further then that.
I guess you can see how this might make the emulation of the 64 a little harder. While the controller has the right number of buttons (I counted), it's going to take a while to get used to a new layout for cl***ic games.

To tell you the truth, everthying he has said seems believable to me. However, a trackball? A once used a trackball mouse a despised it. But if he is the real deal, than I am sure that Nintendo would make a trackball actually work well.

Believe what you will

He's fake. The REV will use a gyro mouse. We all know that. They work 10000000x better than trackballs and are the new standard in wireless PC mice.

You CANNOT ignore the amount of stock Nintendo has in the Gyration company.

He's told us about the gyro technology being used in the controller tho.. It sounds kinda cool...

And come on, do you seriously want to be moving your controller around like a mouse? Add to that the problem problem of (with a normal mouse) having to life and move to the other side of the pad or whatever, how the hell would that work with a gyro mouse?

Not saying that he's real.. but that's a pretty crummy arguement for proving him false.

There is no lifting involved. If you used one you would understand. It is not rubbed on a surface. you hold a button to activate it and tilt your rist like aiming a gun.

I'm telling you it is brilliant and not cumbersome in the least
