    wiimote alternatives?

    Hello, About 3 weeks ago I bought a wii. I was pretty excited about it and thought it would be alot of fun, but I have to say I simply cant stand the 'wiimote'. I find it uncomfortable and akward in most games that I have (zelda, red steel, monkey ball) although it seems ok for wii sports (but to me, wii sports comes off more as training wheels for the wiimote than a game). So on to my question, Does anyone have information on if there are any 'normal' controllers in the works for the wii, or even maybe a future update to allow the classic controller to be used instead of the wiimote? I have to say that I am disapointed that i spend most of my time on the wii playing virtual console games of the past, instead of the new games.

    Thanks

    I second that. I dig the wiimote but it should be optional with some games.

    I think that if you say " Why can't I use a normal controller" you should be instantly banned. The wii is a normal controller.

    To Balsho: it will be for games that really need it. *cough*brawl*cough*

    You tell me what words to use to diferentiate a non wii controller and the wii controller and I'll use them. To the majority the 'wiimote' is unique, and the 'standard' controller is what we have been using for years, something that you push buttons on.

    I love the Wii-mote for Zelda, absolutely LOVE it. DBZ Tenkaichi 2 is really tough getting used to with the Wiimote, but I am getting there...
    Successfully modded my Wii with CycloWiz! :] Works great.

    The Wiimote IS the standard controller for the Wii. Would you rather have the Wii a clone of the Xbox? The Wii was intended to be DIFFERENT style of gaming. If you want the same-old stuff go get an Xbox360 or PS3

    How about "wiimote" and "Those stupid dual analog pieces of crap that somehow we got by on"

    It is pretty funny how rude some people can be when another person doesnt like something they do. This post has a reason, that reason was to ask if anyone happend to know if Nintendo is working on an alternative. It also gave some input on why I would want that alternative.

    As to the controller being the difference between a unique console, and a 'xbox clone', I just dont understand that. 'dont like the controller, get an xbox or ps3' If that is your method of choosing, what reason would there be to choose a gamecube over a ps2 or original xbox? They all have pro's and con's, I looked at the wii for months and decided to buy one (i dont exactly see a way to test drive a wii before buying). In the end, game systems are game systems, not exactly the most important thing in the world, and certainly not something to be so rude to other people about because they have a difference of opinion.

    So again, anyone have an answer for my original question?

    rbanke - Why would you get excited with the Wii when you don't like the controller? Its not like you'd buy it for the totally awesome graphics and multimedia capabilities.
