It looks like Nintendo is not the only one with a remote that can be used like a controller…or is that a controller that looks like a remote? Well, whatver the case, it looks like you will be able to use the Xbox 360 remote for more than watching your favourite movies.
Joystiq with a commentary:
It’s no revolutionary concept, but J Allard revealed that the Xbox 360 remote would double as a game controller. It’s not like you’re gonna be hittin’ the long ball or winning any fragfests with the media remote, but, as Allard points out, “You’re going to be able to play casual games on Live Arcade with the remote control.” It’s a nice feature for anyone too lazy to reach down and pick up the wireless controller.
Allard also praised Nintendo for the Revolution controller, but had his doubts… “I don’t think most Electronic Arts games are going to be played with that thing.”
