Nintendo (Revolution?) Trackball Controller

Nintendo Revolution Trackball Controller
Nintendo’s next-generation console, dubbed "Revolution", is expected to have radically different controllers than those of previous generations. Could it be that Nintendo is adopting the trackball controller concept? We should know more at E3 2005. (Thanks Dave H.)

This is a conceptual image I created to show the feasibility of placing a trackball on the Nintendo game controller. Read more about the benefits of the trackball…

  1. It’s “officialâ€? now. White Fusion is doing it. Videos and pictures on the newly-updated White Fusion website show images of their working prototype for a PlayStation2 trackball controller.

    Videos of the controller in action show comparisons between joystick and trackball precision in the PS2 version of Unreal Tournament. Pictures show a Playstation 2 controller (in developmental stage, judging by the rough exterior), which has had its right thumbstick replaced by a trackball.

    According to a press release on the web site, the new controller technology, dubbed REFLEX Control™, is intended for release in Fall of 2005.

  2. thank the lord that controler was retarded even though the track ball is dumb as hell it is better that a stupid tv clicker. why don’t we use a god damn joystick. Suck it, Tacashi or what ever nitendos president is

  3. TV clicker? Your totally clueless you know that? Other then its look it has nothing to do with a TV remote. The control allows precision movement in full 3D space using only the movement on your hand. Maybe if you had the brains to look past aesthetics to actual functionality you’d be less “Ooh its wierd it looks like teh TV remote, its teh suck” and more “Wow imagine what I could play with that control”. The lesson here is, go and buy a brain.

  4. Hi everyone.
    With the launch of the Nintendo Wii just around the corner, will you purchase one?
    If so, what are you most looking forward to about the system?
