this looks fun... they have borrowed the dreamcast idea from those innovators Sega... and brought it up to date...

this is what I want from nintendo... do not chase the pack... lead the pack...

hopefully the console will have good graphics also....

I am looking forward to playing Luigis mansion 2 on it....

Got to be honest, looks like it'd f**king wreck your hands, it's not exactly contoured for comfort. That's just judging by these though, we'll see.

Exactly how much does this thing weigh? It's certainly a lot bigger than traditional controllers, so holding it with one hand whilst touching with the other (shut up) I'd imagine could be uncomfortable, especially now that it's wider and shorter. That U logo certainly is a nice touch, looking like a finger touching a screen.

I'm not sure about the weight but I'd imagine that it will not be that heavy , The battery will be the weight!

Hopefully theirs a small rumble feature on the device included like wii to keep weight down, and not the difference in weight between the six axis and dual shock3 as that would add alot.

does anyone no if this thing has tactile feedback for games keyboard etc.

I really don't think we can comment on weight or potential discomfort until we hold it ourselves. All we have to go on right now is a few visual clues, nothing else.

A lad has held one and posted his thoughts on it in the Nintendo forum. Here you go.....

Looks AMAZING! anyone who says otherwise is retarded, an angry fanboy or are simply trolling. :D

Once again Nintendo have upped the game aesthetically - the layout looks perfect aswell. As for weight - I'd imagine it'll be lighter than an iPad.

Apple take note - this is how you add physical controls to a touch screen device.
