    Good point. In the end, I see the Wii competing far more with the PC than with the other consoles. Despite the fact that those who PC game generally pride themselves on their high gfx rigs, one of the main attractions is the versatility of the control system. I cannot imagine bothering with RTS on any console, except the Wii. I play Advance Wars (Turn-based strategy) on my gameboy advance, and that's pretty much the only type of strategy game that works with the gamepad control system. Apparently CnC3 is coming to consoles, and there was a CnC title on the N64, but why bother? A root canal would be more fun.

    The Wii-mote can not only do everything the mouse can, it can do more, better. (I imagine the DS touchscreen has similar potential) I look forward to seeing games that would have sucked on a console come to the Wii.

    That's an excellent point! RTS games would work very well with the wiimote. Probably even better than a mouse.

    no not a chance
    it would be so hard to balance that thing
    and considering there are plenty of RTSs with lengthy matches, youd probably get tired of holding it up

    WRONG...
    Gamecube, my friend. ^_^


    And I definitely would not have bought it. That's the only reason I did, 'cause I thought it'd be extremely fun. And it was, for a little bit. But now, there are no good games so it's not-so-fun even with the Wiimote. I'm just waitin' for SSBB, Metroid, and Super Mario Galaxy.

    Wiiconnect24 was pushed pretty strong on the console, and the promise of online capabilities loomed larger several months ago that it does now. If MP3C, as has been indicated, doesn't come with online functionality, I'm going to wish I had bought a DS instead of a Wii. At least they can shoot it up with Hunters. 4-player online isn't the best, but it's better than nothing.

    For all the promise that Wiimote holds, it's still only potential. There's an execution challenge that hasn't been met yet. I'm a patient guy. But not infinitely patient.

    Way off topic, but I don't get the huge complaint about the no-online play. It is a novel idea, but fps tourneys get stale quick, I guess since I'm a former pc gamer, I've had my fill of on-line play. It caters more to total junkies and it isn't long before on-line is "broken" for anyone who actually leaves the house. I put in another thread, I'd like to see an online cross of animal crossing meets zelda - light but addictive. Why does the wii need another level grinder or shootem up we've all played for years?

    To ask the question another way, why don't we have this many years old feature on a 7th gen console (yet)? I don't consider it 'novel', to me it's as basic a game requirement as your offline multiplayer was 20 years ago.

    Trouble is, we haven't been playing Wii-style FPS way for years--to my view, the Wii still doesn't have one such game. What has the chance to make the the old FPS experience more enjoyable is, as I said in discussing it before, you're not testing your button mashing ability against your friends (or strangers), your really getting a different wiixperience.

    However in my experience, even the PC/xbox version of those tourney's don't get old fast unless there's no one new to play against. A popular game with a great control system (one that you can learn and excel at) and environments (maybe even designable/downloadable maps) where you can recruit new opponents from 'round the world is going to add a year to the game's playability, at least. It's not going to be true for everybody, but that's certainly a big draw for me.

    MP3C isn't worth a full 50$ to me without the online functionality. With it, it's worth far more.

    Hell no, i think any1 who says they would buy it minus the Wiimote would be lying. The added bonus is its compatible with other joypads for ppl who prefer them. Like Griever there, ive always had a Playstation and will probably get the Ps3 when the price drops. But the Wii is tremendous fun nonetheless. I think the Wii will boom and Nintendo will be back in the game.

    One other thing though, they need to start catering for the more mature gamer and bring out a few more serious titles.

    Of course I would have! Considering the PS3 and 360 are too expensive and have no games that I want, and the Wii has many games that I want, I would've bought the Wii, remote or no remote. But without the wiimote, the Wii just wouldn't be the Wii
