    Wii Dashboard?

    As I was gazing at my collection of Wii pictures, my eye was caught so many times by the "home" button on the Wiimote and Classic Contoller. (click on the pics below)

    This reminded me of the Xbox 360's center "X" button, which brings up the Dashboard that allows the user to pause the game, change system settings, and even pick their own music to listen to while playing.

    The PS3 will most likely have a knock-off of this feature, but will Wii have some kind of Dashboard feature, or is that "home" button just a pause incognito?

    I for one, think it will do more than stop the action; look how the Wiimote used to be labled below.

    What are your opinions?

    yeah, ive seen that before and wondered what it was. i hope its not a dashboard button. the X button is way too close to the pause button and it gets frustrating when im trying to get to a game menu but i accedentally press that button -_-' (so annoying)
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    well the two on the sides must be for the volume, but the home button is mysterious. I believe that it will do more than just pause the game. Only time will tell exactly what it does...

    i think the two on the sides are pause and select. i dont know why theyre "+" and "-". maybe to make it seem less like a video game

    Here's a pic of the Classic Controller's button commands and the "home" button is used to just quit the game!?

    I don't think that's a good idea if that's all you have to do to quit because you might just hit it accidentially and suddenly you're out of the game.

    I know that this may seem a bit off topic, and it's funny that it's in my own thread, but I wanted to make a line-up of how the Wiimote's buttons have changed and yes, there was a seperate thread about this, but they only showed two pics and mine has three.

    The one in the middle really confuses me because it was at E3, but so was the third one!

    Why Nintendo? Why must you taunt me so?

    supposedly Nintendo ran out of controllers for all the machines so had to use the prototypes they had laying around (might be why some of the games got bad reviews, different innards ).
    If you never try you may never fail, but you will also never succeed.
