Nintendo life are saying that it's a fake. The guy used a 3d printer to make a better version of the photoshopped white controller that was doing the rounds the previous week.

Another valid point below is the diffence between the WinU prototype and the actual device.


Oh and a Nintendo device without a D-Pad isn't a Nintendo device.

I'm hoping for the following. I just pulled it from a Reddit post.

Quote
Possible that this is the controller "base," and that it's meant to slot into attachments? A controller that's just a straight-up oval is freaking horrible, ergonomically, and that hasn't been a problem with anything relatively modern minus the original DS/3DS (at least, if you have big hands). It would make a LOT of sense, though, that it's meant to work with a line of attachments.

You could plug it into a handheld case, or steering wheel or main console controller casing. I still think Nintendo peaked at the Snes controller, since then they went backwards making controllers with strange layouts, lack of buttons or with the Wii developed a remote control.

Like people said Nintendo will do what they want, rather than pander to gamers.

This design wont go away. It looks a little too real and the picture is taken with a far better camera...

I modded mine last year by cutting up a Xbox controller to usb cable and connecting it to a usb extension cable (one with a Usb 2 Female A connector).Then used Splinter Cell and the required files on a regular pen drive. I had both items to hand and once correctly done the usb pen would act like a Xbox memory card. I think I needed to use an older, smaller capacity for it to work.

I used a guide similar to this -

Retro News & Chat / Re: Retro Face/Off: Jaguar vs. Sega 32X

I think a better comparison would of been the Jaguar/3D0/CD32. Its an interesting video, marred by strange games choices that its comparing an add-on system vs full system.

Ive only rarely played on a Jag, I always found the controller to be one that was designed by committee. I did really enjoy Tempest 2000. Atari Karts and Rayman did look great though.

I did have a look on Youtube and I feel a little informed on the Jag, even watched a few items on Ebay.

I still think the NX will be an amalgamation of Handheld and Console tech. Consoles are a dying breed in Japan, whereas handheld/mobile gaming is still popular. A mixture of the two techs will suit both its home market and overseas. I expect the handheld device will work on its own, but have more power once in the home where multiplayer features and TV play will be added. The WiiU with its off-screen play and tablet design was a dry run for the NX.

I think the above mock up is a fake. It doesn't have physical buttons and mimics the patent Nintendo submitted last year. I think its another fake to get advert hits.

We will see though.

The Spectrum port by Clive Townsend (Saboteur!) looks pretty complete, I wonder why Durell didn't release it?

Another N64 game I believe is under appreciated is Doom 64.
Great call, I've only recently purchased it, it had a proper make over with unique levels. Don't forget the game supports the N64 expansion pak.

I wish the controller was better suited to the game and the UKs N64 lack of Rgb output means it's not as great looking as it could of been.

I loved all the systems produced from licensing deals with the console manufacturers.

Pioneer Laser Active (MD and PCE Modules), Panasonic Q, JVC X'Eye, Sharp Twin Famicom, Sharp Super Famicom Naizou TV SF1, JVC V-Saturn.

They were always shown once in CVG but you knew they were a thing of beauty.

I was really pleased with Gradius and Life force, both were really playable and I will return to both.

Gauntlet 2 was bought for my recently acquired Four Score adapter, Game play seemed good, Decent speech but no ingame music.

Double Dragon 2 was surprisingly good, with simultaneous two player action. The variety of moves were well implemented on the two button joypad.

Tetris is only slightly worse and I mean a fraction to the sublime Gameboy Tetris, I did play if for a good two hours on Game B, Speed 9 Height 5.

Operation Wolf was ok on joypad, but I need to dig out a Nintendo Zapper and play it on my CRT to see how good it really is.

Ive gone a little NES crazy this week, My sister had one as a kid so I had played a few titles BITD. My aim at the moment for the NES is picking games  with decent game play rather than a scattershot approach. I love 8 Bit consoles, ive got 18 NES titles and 41 SMS titles now. I didn't expect Rush N Attack and Life Force to have simultaneous two player action, and its always interesting to comparing similar machines titles. I must of put in three hours today testing those games in the picture.

Retro News & Chat / Re: RetroCollect VIDEO GAME MARKET 3 Doncaster
« on: March 06, 2016, 00:26:02 AM »
Apart from being greeted by a huge queue it didn't take too long to get into the hall, I found the market to be decent, with prices ranging from cheap to expensive. Pretty much every system could be found from Coleco to PS2. I bought quite a few decently priced NES carts.

I always find these events interesting with the age of the person usually determining what people are looking for. It was interesting to see how DC, Gamecube and PS2 are firmly in the Retro world and how the pricing for these are beginning to rise.

I found as long as you bought multiple items traders were happy to haggle on price. Prices and condition would differ widely. The trick is to have an idea what you want and what condition your happy to get, haggle but be prepared to walk away from a deal.

I could spend all day in one of these events but my 4 year old daughter was in decent spirits and let me wander around for just over 2 hours.

Thanks, I will gamble it with my Daughter. I'm a sucker for NES and MD Carts at the moment, Id better update my lists so I don't buy any duplicates.
