The original Nintendo NX controller leak that was first picked up by Dual Pixels and then analysed by Destructoid has turned out to be a well made fake. The person behind it posted a video showcasing his skills at creating the fake and passing it off to news outlets. Guess we shall have to wait until E3, or possibly just before, until we actually get a look at the hardware and the controller.
That headline picture describes my exact reaction.
OMG! I WAS IN THE VID!
lol…I’ll admit, it was pretty good.
I suppose that means the other one must be fake, too. Phew! I wonder if these two “leaks” were connected or if the second one was in response to the first?
The creator of the leak simply says that someone else must have taken advantage of his leak and tried to emulate a similar one.
Unless the guy got incredibly lucky and leaked a fake version of the real prototype, that one’s 99.9% surely fake.
Welp there you have it. I fucking knew it was fake although some of me believed it i’ll admit but most of me knew that shit was fake
I knew it too. I was telling everybody it was fake but I did have a tiny little thought in my mind that it could possibly be real.
we all did, and I’m one of you. I kept saying “what if this is real?” “I don’t believe it unless nintendo says so”. He had us thinking.
Pls nintendo make a joke about this at E3
I hope all the youtube channels learn to not address rumors
Oh they won’t, it brings people to their channel, so why would they lol
Idk, I kinda like when channels like EWNetwork and GameXplain get all hyped up over leaks :p
Why? News is news.
Rumors are not news.
LOOOL I AL READY KNEW IT WAS FAKE!!! XDDD AT FIRST pic.twitter.com/ShRPQ82hNv
Cool. *Patiently awaits more “leaks” and rumors*.
We already knew it was confirmed fake, it was a shitty photoshopped UE4 Tech Demo plastered on…
So for everyone that was so sure it was real and talking so much shit! One question. How do your dumbass feel now?
More mature for admitting when we’re wrong and not acting like an immature brat calling people dumbasses.
Oh well, fuck off and fuck u very much :D
I’m somewhat disappointed.my biggest issue with the Wii U tablet isn’t the touchscreen, but the damn size and how uncomfortable it is to me. Although I am glad that this buttonless controller isn’t the real deal.
What? I’m fine with the size. It’s much more comfortable than the 3DS.
LMAO. He got you guys good. I knew it couldn’t have been real.
It was obviously a photshopped Little Mac all along
And the truth comes to light, as we knew it would. Maybe next time the maker can avoid writing such an infamous Iwata quote next to the “controller.” To be honest, perfectly replicating the most controversial image in this entire “Waiting for NX info” period is exactly what I would do if I wanted to rile up the gaming community.
BTW, that second model is very impressive. I’ll give the creator that. I haven’t seen a fake image look this convincing since the fake Rayman Smash Bros. splash. [tips hat]
No surprise, but still…
Thank god it’s fake <3
Theres also Zelda footage on the fake controller too.
It’s obviously fake because the camera is not moving a millimeter… nor is anything else..
The Zelda footage on the controller was never meant to pass as real. It has “concept” right on the title/description, dude.
Never said it was real. :P
Ez. Too EZ.
Continuum for life.
G* x 2
Thank the gods- that thing was ugly as hell.
That is actually pretty funny. The Dumb & Dumber stuff was perfect.
This guy is literally the worst.
But dang, can’t believe it was completely photoshopped. I thought he at least made the controller or something.
Wouldn’t be all that bad of a portable, to be honest
And given the increasing accessibility to 3D printing equipment these days, that would be more possible than ever before.
Thank God! I honestly don’t see Nintendo doing something like that anyways because yeah. it’s an oval. I don’t think that would help them very much
I dont know, my gut tells me the second set of pics are real, the fake one is a smoke screen to gauge people’s reaction.
Move along. Nothing to see here.
THANK GOD! I HATED the looks of that controller. Lets just hope that the REAL NX controller is something COOL! And not another Wii/Wii U hybrid.
Let’s hope the NX as a whole is something “cool”.
As long as they move away from the whole ‘Wii’ thing, I’ll be fine.
Yes. Let’s hope.
I agree friend…I feel like W.D. GASTER was watching…the NX is still in the dark.
“darkness, darker, darker, and darker still”…
I’m warning you nintendo if you ever read this, you better do something good for the NX. if what I hear is right from this Geno guy, then you got my interest…however even he spreads rumors and most sound fake there too…but I hear he is also actuate.
even reviewtech has him listed…DON’T FUCK UP!!!
I consider this a good thing. A home console controller should have all the face buttons as actual buttons.
Lol. Just watch as the real controller turns out to look almost the exact same.
Ugh. If that’s the case, Nintendo learned nothing from the backlash this fake got. From the moment all the hate for that controller went online, Nintendo had more than enough time from that point til E3 to change their direction with the controller.
Especially if the NX console won’t come til late 2017. Unless of course they once again went the stupid route & made the “innovative” controller integral to the console, like the Gamepad was to the Wii U, instead of fucking optional like it should be. In which case, they’ll have to delay the NX to an even later date.
The other set of photos are fake also. Well, not the photos, but the device. It was 3D-printed with laser cut glass.
Plot Twist: Nintendo of America framed the leaker by making it seem as if he was a terrorist. By way of the Patriot Act, he is being held up somewhere til the day he dies without trial or appeal & only the government knows he’s being held as his family simply believes he ran away. Meanwhile, Nintendo hires the best hacker in the world who goes on to hijack the leaker’s internet life & uses damn good photoshop to make it appear as if these leaks were very good fakes using photoshop.
lmao Seriously, though! Wow! Talk about damn good photoshop. This leaker got some people real good. Scary, really, when photoshop is that damn good these days. Imagine what evil things it could be used for if Photoshop one day becomes impossible to tell is fake even when you break down the code. o.O
