Touch is out, Feel is in for Nintendo in the new console

#1 Posted by JudgeDread (640 posts) -

Swedish gamesite got some interesing information from a source close to Nintendo.

 – Nintendo wants to change the way we play – again. The success of Wii was essentially proof that the controller is every bit as important as graphical technology. When Nintendo unveils its next piece of hardware on June 7 , the presentation will be as much about the feel, as the look, of its new games. The revolutionary aspect will once again be found in the controller itself.

 – Haptic technology is a form of tactile feedback used to simulate the experience of touching different objects shown on screen.

Man, this is getting crazy.
I won't believe anything before E3 at this point.

Nintendo Feel, great I suppose.

So according to the leak, you can use the screen controller to get different feelings when touching different textures and things like that.
So when poking on the in-game fire with my finger, I get burned? Shit got real.

Vitality sensor not included

Okay motion controls I could see having some use, which they did. But how in the hell could this be anything other than just another gimmick?

This controller is getting more expensive by the day.... At this rate you'll be buying a controller that comes with a free console.

Nice, except for the fact that it would have precisely 0 gameplay value..... but hey nintendo were the inventors of useless wagle in games so I wouldn't be surprised.

Touching makes me feel good.

Should I feel uncomfortable at the fact that Nintendo wants me to feel them?

#12 Posted by Kjellm87 (1735 posts) -

I dunno about you guys,
but I'm really starting looking forward to E3 now.
This is the best time in the year being a gamer, no doubt.

Obviously the Feel's number one selling title will be Boob Simulator.

Why? This seems utterly pointless and I hope its not true, the streaming between two screens like some sort of home DS sounded way more interesting.

Hopefully we won't be given more silly gimmicks that prevent normal games that people actually buy from coming out on this thing.

On June 7th E3 starts, SSFIV AE DLC is out, and it's my friend's birthday.  That is one crazy day for me.

Well that's ... silly. The only thing I want to feel from games are various intangible emotions. 

Apart from stroking a puppy obviously.

 – Remember Vitality Sensor? It will most likely make a comeback at this year’s E3, though not as a peripheral for Wii, but as a key feature of Nintendo Feel.

You know what's every bit as important as graphic technology? New games.

I hope this isn't real.

Will believe it when I see it. Until then, this is just another absurd rumor coming out of some random news site.

Sorry, surprised I didn't see this.

That shouldn't be allowed :)
