Official Press Release
TOKYO, Sept. 16, 2005 – Every gamer who plays. Every one who used to play. Even those who have yet to play, Nintendo is your bet.

As the cornerstone of his speech today at the Tokyo Game Show’s annual event, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata elaborated on the theme of the company’s aim and proven ability to broaden the population of video game players. Two shining examples highlighted in his keynote include the smash-hit sales of the highly innovative Nintendogs game for the portable Nintendo DS system, and the new controller that will be central to the company’s upcoming console system, code-named Revolution.

Nintendo breaks with more than 20 years of video game history by abandoning the traditional controller held with two hands and introducing an all-new freehand-style unit held with one hand.

The intuitive, pioneering interface allows players to run, jump, spin, slide, shoot, steer, accelerate, bank, dive, kick, throw and score in a way never experienced in the history of gaming.

“The feeling is so natural and real, as soon as players use the controller, their minds will spin with the possibilities of how this will change gaming as we know it today,” explains Satoru Iwata, Nintendo president. “This is an extremely exciting innovation – one that will thrill current players and entice new ones.”

When picked up and pointed at the screen, the controller gives a lightning-quick element of interaction, sensing motion, depth, positioning and targeting dictated by movement of the controller itself.

The controller also allows for a variety of expansions, including a “nunchuk” style analog unit offering the enhanced game-play control hard-core gamers demand.

The response from all major publishers worldwide has been extremely positive. Beyond its other innovations, the new controller gives third parties flexibility, allowing them the option to use as many or as few of the controller features as they desire. In addition, incorporated technology will easily allow games from the NES, SNES, N64 and Nintendo GameCube generations to be controlled in familiar fashion.

Nintendogs for the DS, a virtual and sophisticated dogfest, has taken the gaming world by storm, already selling more than 1.5 million units in Japan and North America combined. The game, just as Iwata believes the Revolution controller will do, is exciting current game players and attracting hordes of new consumers into the playing world.

Bob Ricci - Not A Christmas Album

2 comments

Parody songs are usually associated with Weird Al, but there is still room for some hilarious parodies. That is where Bob Ricci comes in. He is most well known for his geeky take on Puddle of Mudd's "She Hates Me", titled "Internet Love Song (She Blocked Me)". It's about a loser getting blocked by a chick. Pretty self-explanatory.

Some other great tracks to check out are "Five For One" and "It Could Happen To U2".

"Five For One" starts out with an argument between two Bob clones over what song they are going to sing. One of them sings "Closing Time" by Semisonic, and the other sings "When I Come Around" by Green Day. It is surprisingly well executed.

"It Could Happen To U2"...let me just say that it is about getting "stuck in a zipper" instead of getting stuck in a moment. Yes...stuck in a zipper.

Great CD, buy it now.

The Mysterious Morning Mac

Has anyone ever had a Morning Mac? They are breakfast sandwiches at McDonald's, but I never see them advertised. The reason I ask is because they are only the best breakfast sandwich ever, and I've only seen them at one McDonald's location.
