A rumour has been uncovered that the new Nintendo console will be called Feel and will feature a touch screen control pad that simulates various textures and materials.
Noo that sounds bad!
That sounds like the Worst Console name ever. (improper capitalization necessary Grammer Nazis -__-)
*Goes into Gamestop* Hey can you give me a feel?
Uhhhh, wasn't everyone saying that "Wii" was a terrible name before? lol
It sounds bad, but then again the Nintendo Wii? Who believed that name until it was announced by Nintendo?
Pretty much. "Can you give me a Wii?" Like a billion people can say that so is it much of a stretch to say "Feel".
I was reported as immature? Facts are immature?! o_O
Just that name would make me "feel" like they forgot about the hardcore
I think regardless of what the console's called, if the technology inside the box is good and the games library is up to the task, hardcore gaming crowds aren't going to reject the console. On the other hand, the casual gamers are the ones that would be so fickle. If Nintendo still want to keep up their family-friendly appearance, they're going to have to run with a name and a brand that sucks ass from a hardcore POV, but still invites parents to buy their children a games console without being scared of showing them Grand Theft Auto-like scenes that they read about in the tabloids. I hope the name isn't 'Feel' - because that sounds crap - but at the same time, I don't think Nintendo's target with branding is going to be hardcore gamers.
I agree but if the controllers are called FEEL and console is called STREAM ill be very happy. FEEL Controllers STREAM HD
Wow Nintendo knows how to pick'em
isnt this a rumor ? douchbag
Fake, God forbid this is true. A screen, let alone a touch screen, in a controller already makes it expensive enough, but one that can simulate textures would, push it over $100, Id imagine.
Lost in translation? Sounds more like Touch then...
wow, first people Saying Im gonna go play with my wii didnt sound bad enough, combined with the jerking motion of some games like Wario shake. now the next console is called the feel....lmao people will be saying "I love the feel!" nintendo is so kinky :P and i know this is just rumored but still lol
how is feeling kinky T.T?
remember the userbase age mate... in this age, the only feeling they have is kinky...
Justin.....wow, lmao, LOL. its inky because its meant for children. one time sexual innuendo could be passed as an accident, but twice in a row when its geared toward children or family friendly......thats just on purpose
Its actually innocent when its meant for children. And no Nintendo isn't just going for children, this is a flaw gamers make ( well at least immature gamers).
XD KINKY? MORE PEDO WUT UR TRYING 2 SAY KINKY IS WHIPS AND CUFFS
How would feeling textures be relevant in games such as racing and FPS? Doubt this is true.
haptic tech has been around for a while now try using your phone with it turned off and tell me it doesn't make a difference to the feedback you get from the touch screen, just look at the diffence rumble on a pad has made to fps when you get hit, or a racing game when you start to lose grip and just think of it as just an extension of that.
Yeah but feeling how something is smooth or rough doesn't seem to help anybody.
lets stop the fps thats what will be best for all game company's
Ugh, Why is that people always pretend stuff is made just to be there? Of course they did some tests, run several concepts etc etc.
@led-zeppelin the do it already with rumble in pads aready for change in surfaces in driving games why do you think so many people complained when they removed the rumble from the original ps3 pad as people didn't like the loss of feedback from the pad from gettin shot or change in road surface.
Yeah I know that bro but thats rumble this is "feeeling". Rumble isn't the same as actually feeling the surface of something, all rumble does is shake your controller. Two different things, rumble just moves your controller, in this "feel" you have to touch the screen to feel different "Textures and materials" that's not even close to rumble. Doubt this is true in the first place.
*sigh*, how does Nintendo get away with this..
I doubt this is true.
Hey, don't hurt its Feel-ings!
with its next gen specs I doubt anyone will be hurting its feelings.
I have a felling,i have a felling ......................... thats a song right?
Oh, yeah! It's the perfect party song. Wooo! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
no worse than "Wii"
dumbest rumor i ever heard
To be fair we would of said that about the Wii also.
Am leaning towards the Nintendo STFU & WAIT UNTIL E3. Although that name could use some improvement.
nah, it's perfect... i like the "feel" of STFU & WAIT UNTIL E3.
Stream, Feel, Cafe... Where are these names coming from? I'll take Snes, N64 and Gamecube anyday to these new names.
STREAM HD is the best console name ever
Man Asks A Lady Clerk : I Want A Feel & I Will Pay A Lot For It BTW Im So Excited For This, Waited Years For This
It sounds fake, but I'm just basing that on the fact that the article says cannabis instead of can.
I can feel my wii and I don't even have a Nintendo console...
I don't buy it. Doesn't sound real.
"feel" my "wii" HAHA
lol, i was going to say that.
Naw is sounds weird
In my eyes Nintendo STREAM sounds grown-up and very good Nintendo FEEL is poor the FEEL HD no way STREAM HD is mint.
It should be called: Wii Wii (Wii x2/ Wii 2)
i might skip the next gen. nothing interesting happening. why on earth would i want a nintendo console with graphics on par with ps3? just get a ps3. nintendo wont have anything special this time around. and when ps4 comes out it will make the cafe, feel or whatever silly name it comes under look pathetic. just like the wii does now. the industry is getting boring again, its not going to go anywhere new or exciting when the next gen arrives, its just going to be the same as this gen but with 'a bit better graphics.' shit, basically. i think i'l sit the next gen out and just keep my ear to the industry.
I wouldn't be surprised, I mean they came up with a name "Wii" and I found that name hard to believe lol.
That is quite possibly the worst name ever. I hope for all Nintendo users that this isn't true.
