Acording to a game informor magazine the Revolutions controler is like a touch screen. where you touch the buttons. So for like a 2-d Mario game you'd have move pad jump button and Fire button. The game desides the display on the touch screen.
Was going to make a "change" American Kirby, but I'm not that skilled at Fireworks.

I hope not.
I'd say, I've tried to play a game with a mouse, that just doesn't work. Same goes to a notebook touch pad.
That's why I'd oppose the idea of having touch screens on Revolution controllers.
Anyway, if Revolution is backward compatable, ALL of the buttons of Gamecube would be retained, right? (I just hope the shapes will not be retained - I want buttons, not kidneys

It doesn't necessarily have to have the same buttons as the GCN contoller, they may go the other way and just have GCN controller ports as well. This would be helpful for things like the DK Bongos, and maybe the Mario DDR pad (where does that plug into). Of course, thats not saying the Rev's controllers wont be like the GCN's, just saying it doesn't mean they are definately the same.

I expect the setup to be the same controller ports, possibly the same memory card slots, same sized discs... otherwise how else would it be backwards compatible?
But I do expect new titles to use different controllers and bigger memory cards.
Thats what I suspect will happen, too.
And whats the problem with the C Stick? IMO, they need to fix the D Pad (way too small) and perhaps add a Z Button on the left (so theres two shoulder buttons on each side). That is of course if the controller is similar. If its different, who knows?
I don't think the Gamecube controller will be used for any new Revolution games... I suspect if it was going to be redesigned then it would have to be quite drastic. The X, Y and Z buttons are all abysmally placed/shaped, the reason for the different sized A and B buttons has never been fully explored, the directional + pad is redundant for any useful purpose, and the C-Stick could be better placed to provide a dualshock style control.
But I doubt they'll redesign the Gamecube controller... I expect they'll just build a new one from the ground up.
