New nx rumour
Hopefully fake Is it that hard for them to just do something like this http://gameswallpaperhd.com... Look how many adapters they sold and how many people bought the new Gamecube controllers they did for Smash Bros U
You clearly don't understand that the patent is not for the actual design of the controller and the final product isn't represented by such in the illustration. The whole summation of the patent is for scrollable, clickable shoulder(wheels) or buttons with some kind of force feedback or inertia motorized mechanism. You may not want to admit it, but this is why Nintendo should stay in the hardware game, this is something that should have been in current controllers and it will only be a matter of time before Sony and Microsoft both copy it for certain! People love to trash Nintendo for not doing the obvious choice of just improving graphics of their hardware (which should definitely be a focus to some extent), but never want to give them credit when they incorporate something like this. Which is ingenious and will change how we game and the level of interaction and control input...
and why is this soo amazing and why does this mean nintendo should stay in the hardware business
We won't know if this will make a difference to gaming yet, but the d-pad on the NES and four action button layout and shoulder buttons of the SNES controllers certainly did. As did the rumble pack and analog stick of the N64 controller. Maybe a clickable mouse wheel will too?
hope it's fake too
It finally made it to n4g! Wow some of you guys sound like ungrateful twats. Well anyway a click able scroll wheel would me zooming presices, tank controls or dual track controls easier. Scrolling and use could be done with one button while the others are used to evade. They could be used to spin off a tackle in a foot ball game or control the lateral distance of a cross over in basket ball or start a slide in soccer or baseball. This is literally the point of a console. To do stuff other platforms wont.
It looks like an early patent/prototype/placeholder for the Wii U controller. It's probably just an old patent that surfaced.
"for Smash Bros U" Your point being?
So the triggers are scrolling wheels? That's interesting, I wonder how they could translate that into gameplay.
Put two different types of inventory, item or weapon sets, to the scroll wheels, then just turn in either direction to quickly access said items. They could also be used for balancing mini-games and interactive puzzles, in adventure games, for quickly zooming to specific depths in a shooter when ADS, and quite a few other functions. The uses depend on the imaginative power of the developer. Although I imagine, much like the game pad, most won't know what to do with it if it ever came to fruition, but I'd love it for the possibilities it provides.
I can see them being used to quickly swipe between menus.
Still, the controller looks small as duck tho...
Hmmm Interesting concept !
I doubt this very much. Of coarse Nintendo pretty much lets us use any controller we want, on Wii U. Who knows. I like the tablet allot for games like COD and Darksiders 2. The weapons switch is fantastic. So it would be nice to have second screen again. The cost is still greater than a standard pro like controller, which would again factor into the price. That would again make an affect on the price/power. Nintendo won't want to be above $249-$299.
Does anyone understand how patents work?
apparently the NX made it's own fans believe anything regarding rumors, patent, delayed games or rumored games from Nintendo to be for NX launch. It almost like I reading Fairy Tail again regarding Zeref followers.
I hope that's not the NX controller.
i dont know what it is because why does it have only 2 buttons
Oh my god, NO! This is NOT a rumored NX controller! It's a damned PATENT CONCEPT! Who in their right minds actually thinks that Nintendo is going to make a controller that ditches all but two of the face buttons?! Jesus, when will people stop making stupid headlines like that?!
I hope that the person who made it is well aware and just wanted to bait people like you.
The wheel triggers is where you rotate the camera and scrolls thru context menus makes everything easier
People can't tell what a patent is. This is just laughable.
Mostly everyone knows what a patent is. What is shown could still be what the NX or handheld could look like.
