    Whats under the flap?

    Just been reading through a few articles and forum postings that were written before the E3 announcements.

    As im sure you guys already know, the media speculation over the 5th Nintendo console was and still is massive, but a few interesting points were never really clarified at E3..

    Does Nintendo®'s revolutionary new game console sport some new virtual reality or stereoscopic 3D experience? What's under the secretly-guarded flap on the front of the console? Why does the console sit in it's cradle in a tilted position? How can a console with no HD support that only has only about as much power as the original XBOX® "wow!" us with it's graphics?


    Much of the speculation regarding the 'flap' was in relation to a built-in 3D projection from the console, this was never touched on at the E3 show, but given the close copy-cat style of its competitors would Nintendo really want to be sharing all the Wiis secrets so far from launch?


    I mean afterall what hardware we saw at E3 was infact specially manufactured for the show and isnt the final mass production version (they used gamecube housing for the demos). So is it really far fetched to believe Nintendo are keeping something up their sleeve?


    "It's convenient to make games that are played on TVs. But I always wanted to have a custom-sized screen that wasn't the typical four-cornered cathode-ray-tube TV. I've always thought that games would eventually break free of the confines of a TV screen to fill an entire room. But I would rather not say anything more about that. "

    So it's basically an in-built projector that you shine onto something like a white wall?!!

    it shouldn't be....bluetooth doesn't require a line of sight connection, so the bluetooth receiver doesn't have to be visible at all

    As small and light as they have become, there is no way in heck there is anything in there that projects an image, especially at the predicted price point. Fine with me too as the Wii will reside in my home theater equipment closet on my rack and not even in the same room as my screen.

    You never know, it could be that Nintendo is offering a highly sophisticated console at a cheap price for the benefit of us and to attract consumer demand.

    To see a projector in there would be awsome, though it looks more like one of those IR recptor thingys that go on the front of a VCR. Then I thought that it must be for the controller so u can use it for a remote. Then i remembered that the controler doesn't need it. So in conclusion, i don't think its for dertecting IR.
    What do you call a button masher on the Wii?
