    My email to Nintendo about the Wii gun situation.

    Hi Nintendo.

    My names Ash and I have a Nintendo Wii along with previous older Nintendo systems. This section is for feedback of our Nintendo Wii experience and comments so I will type some here, I know it's a bit long but PLEASE I BEG OF YOU to read it and take notice or forward it to the suggestions department if any. Wii really love the Wii (get it? and want to explain how a Nintendo Wii console update via internet as usual, can make ALL Wii customers extremely happy. I'm 26 years old and have been playing games for a long time.

    I as MANY other Wii owners love our shooter games, and we bought Resident Evil 4. But playing with a nunchuck in one hand and a remote control in the other, it doesn't feel anywhere near like a real gun but rather awkward instead especially how there is no Control Setup options to actually change our setups/buttons around. In fact most if not all shooter games are lacking Control Setup options to actually change our setups/buttons around, which makes it very fustrating at times as not everyones the same.
    To top it all off I purchased 2 Joytech Sharp Shooter Shotguns for the Wii (http://www.joytech.net/1/products/wi...rp-Shooter.htm) along with my Resident Evil 4 and thought this would make things more realistic.

    But after realising that in the Control Setup options of shooter games there was no choice to change our setups/buttons around, it instantly makes every Wii gun product out there disappointingly unrealistic due to the crucial fact that the gun's trigger (buttons C and Z on the nunchuck) is NOT to shoot but to do other things such as run in Resident Evil 4. To shoot we have to press A or B (depending which game) on the Wii remote which is placed in the front section/barrel of the guns, which doesn't make sense at all. Every single gun in this planet as in 100% of all guns that exist have the trigger as the shoot/fire mechanism. The feel of the guns is excellent when in the hand but sad and fustrating when actually trying to play, which is a massive shame as they were SO CLOSE to having something beautiful for the Wii. It would of been like Virtua Cop arcade machine in our houses. The "main" problem is the trigger button on the Wii guns is NOT to shoot/fire but it isn't the only problem, the other being that other buttons become an awkward setup when using the Wii guns, and to expect Wii game companies (especially shooter games) to include Control Setup options in future games isn't exactly a fix to the problem of already released excellent games such as Resident Evil 4 and already purchased Wii guns.

    We understand that this is not Nintendo's responsibility to make sure games released have Control Setup options to change our setups/buttons around, and also understand that Nintendo does not sell Official Nintendo Wii Guns (as far as I know). But we believe there is something Nintendo can do very easily which like I mentioned before will make Wii customers such as us extremely more happy ESPECIALLY all the Wii Shooter game fanatics.

    By Nintendo releasing an Official Nintendo Wii Console Update Firmware via internet ofcourse to include a new "Control Setup" options/settings into the Wii "Console Settings" section, which would have the ability of us changing our buttons around, all problems would be solved for Shooter games already released and future Shooter games and would prove Nintendo Wii's potential to be huge. Also all the Wii guns wouldn't just be sitting collecting dust in our closets but rather being used like a gun is supposed to. Right now I and all friends who have purchased Wii guns don't even use them for shooter games they would be excellent with, as it's just to unrealistic and awkward. Or maybe a new Control Setup Channel if it would be easier. Either by letting us choose to use for example the A button as the Z button and so on, or by Nintendo having a HEAP of different configurations of the nunchuck and Wii remote for us to choose from (classic ontrollers wouldn't be necessary). Then a SAVE option to always keep the new settings like that even after the Wii has been shutdown/reset or to NOT SAVE which will revert all the changed settings back to default after Wii shutdown/reset.

    Then FINALLY the trigger button when put into the Wii gun (nunchuck buttons C and Z) will actually do what it's meant to which is shoot and EVERYONE is just an EXTRA happy Wii customer. Imagine the possibilities of future Wii shooter games with Co-Op option for 2 players split/screen with Wii guns which shoot when we press the trigger. That's literally arcade machines Virtua Cop 2 style in our own homes thanks to the Wii.

    I appreciate you taking the time to read our feedback/suggestions as Nintendo loyal fans/customers and would LOVE to hear what you guys think when you are ready.

    Ash and friends.

    I just read it....

    yes, the whole thing...

    how about you get off your lazy butt and do the same? either that or gtfo this thread because this thread is about talking about that email



    As for my opinion, i think that hopefully they'll let us change the controls in future shooting games on Wii. however, it's doubtful that they'll change it now...in my opinion at least.

    Nintendo did make a gun though, its called the Wii Zapper. I really don't know how else to play with a gun controller than with arcade games like house of the dead, or Ghost Squad. MOH2 does ok with the wii zapper though, just feels more confortable to play with 2 controllers instead of a gun.

    Sounds good to me.

    I like how in RE:UC there's a zapper A setup, but then there's no B? Why label it A in the first place? lol

    Anyway, this is how I hold the controller when playing UC. It's not the best solution, but it works and you get used to it after a while:

    Hand Position
