While we are talking about that... "Thing"... I'd want to know what the hell were they thinking when they decided to make the control look like an ordinary remote control...

I don't know... Maybe it's just me... But I'm so turned down thinking that if I want to play a game it will feel like changing channels on my TV... :eeeeeh:

I have no idea of what you are talking about... And I'm certainly not going to waste some of my little precious time left for anything else than work I have lately to search it on the internet...

The remote control is kind of working like a Light Gun. Every motion you do with the remote is detected on the screen.

And for movement you kind oh have the analog stick from the N64 controller amputated to fit on the remote.

The thing that I don't like about the controller of the CD-i eh, i am sorry, I mean Wii, is that it asks for too much effort from a lazy gamer. I am as much interested in performing all the required movements with it as much in dance revolution (or whatever the name is). Also, how will you be able to play games that require the new controller scheme, lying on your side on the couch?


Tulac, don't get upset by Pigggy's comment, he is just very arrogant, don't take it personal.

I would feel silly holding a remote in my hand while playing a game. What does it only require one hand or do you put your second one under or behind it :eeeeeh:
And if its wireless then thats not good i will end up chucking it through the tv or wall because it doesnt have a wire to stop it LOL
I think nintendo started to die during the N64 era after that i couldn't give a hoot about nintendo :Titan:

Why i still have my bros Original nintendo and super nintendo and they work perfectly k:

Just like the two post above me. That's exactly what I was going to say.

The concept is so alien to me, I don't even want to try it. I'm still trying to get over the fact that the last "new gen" of console wasn't even fully explored yet, and they are about to launch another "new gen" only for the sake of making money... And it shows.

This doesn't work for me. Add the strange remote to all this, and I'm completely turned off.

Well, nobody has to like it, anyway

I'd like to get it because I really want to know how well these new games play with a remote afterall. Maybe it is THE new way of gaming. Maybe it's just stupid. That I wanna find out.

I also usually prefer the old consoles, mainly the SNES, but also a few NES and N64 games. Since there was this rumor (or it's official, I dunno) that you can download the old games (at least I heard of N64) I'd also like to know if that's true and if it is actually even possible to play a few of this games with a remote.

To me, it's the couriosity driving me to buy the console, maybe I'm even a bit of a fanboy (but not the "OMG!!!11 PS AND XOBX SUXX0RS" kind of fanboy).

Edit:
MAN, I had a LOT to edit in this post, I should get some sleep soon

Well from what I've heard you can turn the remote horizontally so it becomes a classic NES/SNES controller, so no "special" features will be used for the old games...
