Revolution controller will be somewhat compatible

by: John -
Eurogamer has an interview with Jim Merrick at Nintendo Europo and he provides a little more information on the Nintendo controller. Including this nugget

"We're producing a classic-style expansion controller, based on traditional designs like the Gamecube controller. It's like a shell with a hole in the top into which you slot the freehand-style controller, and then you can play third-party ported games, and retro Nintendo games you've downloaded."

This makes me feel a lot better about plunking money down for a Revolution now and should help to get third party developers to produce games for the platform.

Thanks to Evil Avatar for the linkage.
