    The controller in 3D space? Nintendo LIED!!

    Before I start, I bought my Wii at launch, I'm lovin it although I'm still waiting for some more good games to come out.

    Anyway, for those who didn't follow Wii news before it came out, Nintendo repeatedly said that the "Revolution" (the Wii) senses where the controller is in 3D space. They said "A computer mouse, only in 3D space" and "Imagine sticking your hand into a virtual box and having your TV understand how it's moving in there." Many questioned how this would work considering you have to lift a mouse to re-centre it- well it couldn't work and doesn't work.

    After a couple months and renting a few different games, it definatly can not do this. The controller points, senses accelleration and orientation. At first I wondered how it knew I was blocking in Sports boxing, its because the controller is vertical.

    Did anyone else notice this?

    PS NOBODY CALL IT A WIIMOTE PLEASE!

    it does know where it is in 3d space. yes in boxing that is all it uses, but in other games ive seen it uses more. the controller knows every direction it can be facing and also knows how far away from the console it is. you put all those together you have 3d space. the sensor bar is just a still point so that there is always a spot for it to sync via infrared, if it only used bt then it would matter where you put the console. therefore pointing on the screen would be damn near impossible. in time youll see the remote do much much much more. this is only the beginning.

    try baseball yet? u can see the bat moves according to your wiimote.
    tennis? backhand with mote = backhand in game, forehand = forehand
    golf? swings as hard as you swing (although not completely accurate)
    technology is never perfect!

    only problem in games i can see is monkey balls, some of the games the wiimote cant play properly, but this could be from my personal gameplay style, other people say its fine.

    and also in zelda, no matter which way u swing the remote, it does the same attacks. but this isnt cause of the remote, im pretty sure its due to the game designers of zelda being lazy!

    a little off topic but, my theory is that technology will one day advance so far that it'd end up right back where it started - reality! anyone else agree?
    of course not all technology, just a theory i've come up with after experiencing the wii.

    Two perfect examples of how the Wiimote works in 3D space are:
    1) Shield attack in Zelda
    2) Using the defibrillator in Trauma Center.

    Of course it has 3D space orientation, thats one of the reasons there are accelerometers.

    3D = Width, Length, and Depth

    You can move it horizontally, vertically, and forward/backward. Those are all three dimensions, so you lose.

    just try the sunglasses tool on the photo editor. moving the remote closer or further away increases/decreases the size of the sunglasses. See 3D

    It was an EXAMPLE to explain to people who arent all technical.. it SEEMS like it is. Ya, it knows it through more simple ways then 3D space, big whoop...

    It still uses 3 Dimensional positioning tho, and wait till companies grasp its capabilities.
