Nintendo’s Revolution

Everyone’s talking about it all over the net. For sure, Nintendo’s Revolution Controller has been the most important piece of news of this year at the gaming industry.

The biggest step towards better gaming experiences in a long time. Finally, someone did understood “it’s not the graphics, stupid!”.

It will be a revolution for certain: A revolution for gamers. Considering that all the titles in the history of Nintendo will be at our disposal with their new console.

Yet, developers are still waiting if Iwata-san has something “revolutionary” to say about the possibilites of working with his new-generation machine. At the last GDC he mentioned that “Nintendo DS also means, Nintendo Developer Systems because it will be the best platform to work with (?).
