    left-handed wii players?

    I didn't realise that the wii having two control devices might pose a problem for lefties like myself, in fps' for example with aiming

    Now, i haven't played it so this might be a bit silly, but would this actually be a problem?

    thanks for your replies

    They've probably taken left-handed individuals into consideration aye. Seems to be a matter of making a lefty-option toggle, then just switching which hand you're holding the wiimote and chuck in.

    If they've thought about it (which knowing Nintendo, they probably have), it most probably won't be an issue.

    The options are there for right and lefties in Wii Sports, so I wouldn't see it being a problem at all.
    WiiSports (obviously) / Redsteel / Excite Truck / TC:SO / Rayman RR / Wii Play / Sonic and the Secret Rings / Mad Catz Skinz

    No worries, though if the option is within Wii sports, does that mean you'd have to toggle the feature in every game you play?

    Surely there'll be like a setting on the Wii's "home screen" or whatever right?

    I personally don't care. Did they make different controllers for lefty's on other consoles? Different mouses for computers? Different types of cars? The list goes on and on. I really don't care, and will learn how to use it with my right hand like I normally do. I never use the left -handed controller settings for any other games..

    I'm also a leftie, and for Wii Boxing, I pretty much had to do everything completely opposite. Everyone looks at me as if I'm holding the controller wrong, but I then try the other way, only to feel uncomfortable with having the Wiimote on the righthand and the nunchuck on the left.

    True. But I mean, you can get used to it over time maybe.

    This isn't really much of an issue for me, cause it's just a small aspect but: I looked at the scans of the Zelda: Twilight Princess manual... -I'll be talking about fishing controls here, not much of a spoiler, but I'll tag it anyway-

    Spoiler Alert!

    So it'll be something I have to get used to. Ofcourse it's a bigger issue for you for obvious reasons, but in either case, would you be willing to adjust to right hand gaming (unintentional sex innuendo's ftl...) if the lefty-flip function isn't available? It most probably will be there though.
