Rumour: New Nintendo NX Controller Pictures Leaked

New Nintendo NX controller pictures might be hinting at what we should expect from  Nintendo's future console and what it can do. A bit of info on Reddit  was also included with these two images:
  • Only the upper 'nubs' of the sticks move. The bottom part is static (kind of like the circle pad, but it moves along the bottom 'sphere'.
  • The rollers on the top feel and look pretty much identical to a mouse scroll-wheel. Though I do don't believe this will be the final design.
  • Haptic feedback is feels like Apples 'taptic' engine. Not like regular rumble.
  • 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom
