    Well if you don't like the controller you can still hook up the old Gamecube controller and play with that.

    Poor attempt at creativity?I think its an excellent attempt.And not saying that you said this ,but creativity for a controller means nothing for gameplay really (Excluding 1 hands).

    Is there any controller out there that was extremely hard to adapt to?
    Mirror mirror on the wall,is this not the best game of all?

    Do the people here ahve any idea what they're talking about? Do they have any idea what the hell this controller can do? Damnit, stop saying it's not creative until you've seen it in action!

    I can't wait to try out Red Steel with this controller.

    Honestly, people are exaggerating the "swing your arms like an idiot" thing.

    Many games will have the option of using the Gamecube controller. A prime example of this is the eagerly awaited Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which will use the traditional controllers from its predecessor, and Twilight Princess will have a Gamecube version. And, also, They won´t require to be in constant, tiring movement for most of the time. The movements required to do lots of the things in Wii games are rather small, such as a flick of the wrist. It´s not full virtual reality, just partial. And, I agree with Latios: if that tires you, you seriously need exercise.

    Exactly. Not every game is going to use the controller. Do you always have to use the touch screen on the DS? No. Most games will have an option to use normal controls.

    that was a funny joke you said, but i don't think that using the new controller will be easy, it looks difficult to use, it might take some time to get used to, i would like to try just to see how well it can be used.

    One of the users that used the wii control at E3 said the controller was easy to adapt to.But I suppose everyone will adapt at different rates.

    As chocy suggests,Wii will be awesome!

    Cant be arsed to check if its mentioned, but for those worried about motion, you dont havew to exaggerate like everyone in the videos does, if you want to you can calibrate it so small motions can be classified as the large motions.

    Heck in the video you see a guy curl in a ball and that turns to Morph Ball in metroid...do oyu actually do that? Do you bollocks

    ^ & ^^, dudes, he was being sarlcastic...

    That part did make me laugh though. He was looking slighlty "cool" playing it and then suddenly he jumps out from behind the sofa and starts curling up a ball. He looked like a right **** if you ask me.
    Er, twig... yum...

    I'm doubtful over the Wii controller. It could be Nintendo's biggest risk ever, and if it flops then it could be disasterous for them. But I also see it as being innovative - like the Nintendo DS.

    There are a few things about the controller that make it innovative:

    Design: The design of the controller is what concerns me most. The controller is radically different from any of Nintendo's other controllers to date, and is what sets the Wii apart from its competition.

    The Wii controller has a 'nunchuk' (or whatever it's called) design, which means that the controller is in two parts - with the control stick in the left hand and the buttons in the right hand. My worry with the design is that it will feel as if the controller is 'empty', and that it might not work well with all types of games (see technology below). The design also strays from the tried and tested game pad (hence the risk of the design) which I felt Nintendo had perfected on the GameCube.

    Technology: Another aspect of the Wii's (Wii's?... lol) controller is the technology that it contains. The Wii has a motion sensor built into its controller which allows the player to make movements with the controller and see a response on-screen. This was best demonstrated at the E3 Nintendo Press Conference (see it at www.gamespot.com - search the site and you should find it soon enough). I am excited about this myself, but I do have concerns over the way that it might be implemented (imagine flicking the controller to make mario jump, or using the sensor as a form of control - they would both wear my wrists heavily).

    There is also the 'virtual console', Nintendo's way of offering backwards compatibility and more. This works by allowing you to download games onto a special memory card, which is then used to access the games. The games that are available extend as far back as the NES, if not further. There are also other companies contributing to this with Sega and Hudson adding games from their older consoles into the mix. Sega will offer Mega Drive games and Hudson will offer PC Engine games (I'd never heard of this console until about a week ago, apparently it was never released in the UK. It was released in the US under the name 'Turbo Grafx'. The Nintendo games available will also include the SNES and the N64. It won't include GameCube games but the console will play them.

    I honestly can't criticise this negatively at all, it certainly is better than what Sony and even Nintendo's previous efforts were. Nintendo even developed a controller specifically for the older games. This controller resembles the SNES controller but with extra buttons.

    I think this would be an appropriate time to end my evaluation of the Wii controller. Besides I don't want this to turn into an advertisement for the console (and create SPAM at the same time). So to end my lengthy review, I would say that I am quite excited about the Wii and its controller, though I actually might not buy one immediately. Instead, I might wait until the Wii has been out for a few months, just in case the console flops. At least I might save Ł200 that way.

    Well, considering how much postivity the Wii is getting, I think it has a hard chance of failing. It's still possible, but considering recent events (PS3 E3 Conference, for example), it's incredibly unlikely.

    As for the controller itself...it doesn't actually need too many add-ons, considering what it can do. The nunchuck subsitutes for moving around and jumping, the classic controller is for old games, and the gun is...not entirely sure. What else could it need?

    Default Wiimote

    I think that the Wii Remote is the coolest thing ever. As long as they get the sensory part right (which, from video demos looks like they have so far,) it will be amazing, and anyone who doesn't like it is either ignorant or jealous. Sure, some games won't make very good use of it (SSBB for example), but that's why they have the Wii controller and Gamecube controller ports. (By the way, if anyone read the press release on Brawl, they noticed that the makers hinted on its compatability with the Cube controller). As for those that do, however, the controller will make games more realistic, and thus more fun. Red Steel is a good example of this, and if you saw the video you know why. Aiming will be easier, looking, hand to hand combat, and swordfights all get easier and just more fun. I hate when people complain that Nintendo make all the "stupid little kids games". If a game is fun, who cares what ESRB says? People hate games like Animal Crossing, Mario Sunshine, and above all Pokemon, just because they happen to be popular amongst younger kids, yet they probably have never played them in their lives. Most of them don't know anything other than virtually blowing people's brains out in Halo and GTA, and practice a sort of Ethnocentrism for those games, singling Nintendo out as obselete. Mind you, I don't hate Halo or GTA, I'm simply saying that there are other games out there. Also, people flamed Nintendo in the past, with comments like "that stupid thing cant even play DVD's or that thing can't even store things on the Hard drive." Guess what, if you want to do that, buy a DVD PLAYER AND A COMPUTER. Don't base a game system on its features, base it on its games. That's what it's for. It's the same with PS3's new whatever Hi-Def player thingy. I think i'll pass on spending 500 dollars for a couple of good games, then 2k+ for a hi def tv to watch the stupid things. My TV works fine. Wow, kinda got off topic there, so whatever, flame me for it. But if you agree with anything, or disagree, feel free to leave comments. but to return to my original topic, the Wii remote kicks a few unmentionable things, so that will conclude my tangent. Again, reply if you actually read this whole thing. And sorry again for going off topic.

    Exactly. Why go through spending money on a console which sticks with old gameplay and a HDTV when you can spend significantly less money for a innovative, engaging and user-friendly console with a huge list of games - Best of NES, SNES, N64, Genesis and PC Engine and all of GCN, and the Wii games themselves - and a brilliant controller that will revolutionise the gaming world - or maybe the world itself?

    I personnaly dont see what so many people find concerned about the new controller. Mind you, i was a little bit WTF? at first, but then when i discovered the whole motion sensor thing i was like O_O. This is called innovation. Improving on the already great. Seeing as how Nintendo pulled of the DS without a hitch and is even outranking the PSP, this just proves that Nintendo knows a thing or two about gaming. Sure, the PS3 has a similar concept to the Wiimote, but personnaly, i really dont see how using the dualshock controller for the sensor thing will be that great.

    The uses for the Wiimote are astounding and make gaming easier than it has ever been. I feel as if this controller has 2 analogs and a d-pad, as opposed to 1 analog and a d-pad. However, the other analog is actually your entire hand, making things like aiming, moving, pulling, rolling, flying and much more a breeze. I had this thought for the StarFox games that could really be pulled off quite well for the Wii. Imagine using the wiimote to move the ship left and right by moving the wiimote left and right. Barrel rolling? tilt the controller left and right. going up and down? move the controller up and down. Then you could use the B-button to fire the grenades and such while using the A-button to accelerate.

    All i can say is that this will truly be something to look forward too. The truth is, some people cant handle change as quickly as others. That's alright. I think that this will definitley be something worth getting.

    Side joke: if people are bugging you at school, bring the wiimote with the nunchuk attachment and go all kung-fu at them the next day, lol!

    Meh, it was simple and sleek along with the Knunchuck attachment but I wouldn't call it a good controller. It required the sleeve for protection and extra comfort. The motion controls were excellent which were further enhanced with the Wii Motion Plus. It was a great innovation in gaming but the controller itself, not so much. I still prefer Sony's DualShock controllers and more importantly the Gamecube controller even more than the Wii-mote, it with the Knunchuck attachment, and the classic controller.
