Where's the Controller?

The Revolution Controller
Nintendo famous for its innovations, had revealed a simple, one-handed controller. Nintendo's controller was the most attracted in the Tokyo Game Show, a three-day event that opened on Friday. While Sony and Microsoft were trying to lure visitors with their new consoles. While most controllers require two hands and are studded with buttons and joysticks, the new controller has fewer features, giving it the appearance of a TV remote control. This controller will be used with the to be released Nintendo's Revolution game console. The Revolution will compete itself with Sony's Playstation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360. A new feature in Nintendo's new controller is its use of motion sensors. A demonstration video showed users shooting it like a gun and conducting a virtual orchestra by using it like a baton. The controller can also work with sports video games, allowing players to swing it like a tennis racquet or baseball bat.
