A 'Revolution'-ary Remote

I think a key note to be said about Nintendo's "Revolution" controller is that instead of the controller being made around the game, the games will now be made around the controller. Button controllers, much like keyboards, are actually generic devices to suit a wide variety of purposes and actions, while the new remote-style controller with freedom of movement will see the games made around it instead. If game developers can work with that thought we may actually see something new and 'revolutionary' come out of Nintendo. If not ... *shrug* your guess is as good as mine.

I just hope their motion detection is better than the gloves I got ages ago. *shakes head* Those things were jumpy and hard to control at best and at worst they barely worked at all.
