This footage is, allegedly, of an ex-Midway developer. Using his Dreamcast, his glorious, beautiful Dreamcast, he pretty much designed and built a control system identical to that which now powers the Nintendo Wii’s little motion sensitive remote. Only this was built back in the year 2000, when Nintendo was a joke in the console race thanks to no one really being that bothered about the N64 and its Gamecube still a distant dream that wouldn’t flop onto European shelves until 2002.
Here is some actual, visual proof – as if any more was needed! – that Dreamcast was way ahead of its time and a misunderstood victim that deserved so much better:
The man, ex-Midway employee Patrick Goschy, is now attempting to sue Nintendo for copying his idea. Nintendo is laughing it off. As you would if a bearded man in his underpants attempted to sue you.
