4 controller ports
Lack of games
WOW, I got this games console from japan with 3 games and an extra controller. I bought it so i could get Super Smash Brothers:mele early, which is good, becuase its been confirmed that the japenese game will be in English and Japenese. The graphics for the console are very good, Especially luigis mansion. The frame rate on all the games is a constant 30 FPS, super monkey ball is 60 fps.
The games load incredibly quickly for a Disc based console, Wave Race: blue storm,takes 2-4 seconds to load a level and doesnt even have a a loading bar, it makes the dreamcast and Playstation 2's loading time seem like hours. The star of the Console has to be the controllers , they sit perfectly in your hands, you dont even notice its there.it also has the best ananlog buttons ever(one of my freinds said they could sit and press the 2 analog buttons all day)It has a very subtle yet powerful built in rumble effect.The Indigo colour looks brilliant in real life.
Like I said the only bad thing about this console is that it had only 3 games to choose from at the japenese launch, but when it comes out in the US there are 15 confirmed games for the launch.
