I was very disappointed when I found out how the pointer worked with the wii remote. I assumed since the laser technology has been used so many times even in very VERY old systems that they would use something similar for pointing with the wii remote. I AT LEAST expected some sort of calibration that you could do so it would have an idea of where you are pointing. I almost bought a gun controller for the gun games but I sure am glad that I didn't!! Who wants to stare down a gun site at the floor or a foot below the TV to shoot something that is half way up the screen? I HOPE they come up with an update to help with this. The wii remote is useless for old fashion shooting games and now I've lost my hope that we would get a Time Crisis type game for the wii because it just wouldn't be the same when you don't point at what you are trying to shoot. Anyone know of news about changing this up ? I made mine a little better by stacking a ton of CDs and/or DVDs in front of my tv so the remote sensor is absolutely as close to the bottom of the screen as you can get without covering part of the picture. The only thing is that this looks horrible when I have company.
