    It's almost been a mission of mine to tell people about the Wii. I've converted quite a few people now, just by explaining how to play, what games are like, online functionality etc...
    Also a misison for me, a failed one My friends either have a 360 and/or are getting the ps3. THey'll have to see it for themselves to persuade them

    I think you will find that in the case of most multiplayer games where players are playing simultaneously, the nunchuck attachment will not be utilized as much as it seems.

    For example, it isn't required for Wii Sports(trivial argument, I know) and SSBB is already slated for GameCube controllers being mandatory... at which point the GameCube controllers may be had for under $10.

    I strongly believe that Nintendo will make strides to break away from the "two hands on the controller, couch potato"-esque gaming experience and try to engage users into creative ways of playing.

    Sure, ExciteTruck is one exception to this, but granted, Nascar fans are already fat, so it doesn't matter.

    Yes, its still better than the xbox 360 and ps3, but it just seems abit contrary to what they were saying.

    Don't get me wrong, Nintendo is by far the coolest. its always had the best games (Nintendo has Mario,DK, Zelda, Metroid, and the like, Whats Microsoft or Sony have?
    Dont get me wrong im all for Nintendo and will be picking a Wii up but Microsoft has quite a bit of things. Halo, Gears of War, COD3 Online, Oblivion, Splinter Cell will be a hell of a game coming out in a couple weeks, and not to really mention but Xbox live i dont think can be beat. Sony has MGS series, COD3 online, Oblivion, and some others also. All the systems have theyre games that will help sell the system, Wii isnt the only one with the system selling games.

    You mentioned COD3, Oblivion and Splinter Cell a lot. I would ignore those as they are available on both consoles, and probably on the PC. PS3 is left with MGS... And Xbox has Halo (Boring now) and Gears Of War, which we will have to play before we can decide whether or not it's good. Last I heard it had framerate issues.

    My fiance still kicks herself because she missed out on an opportunity to buy a bright orange Gamecube controller...
    well shes in envy now, ive got four of em

    On Topic: The nunchunk does look awfully expensive and i do think that nintendo should sell them separate, but still including bundles of course, to save money.

    With the muliplayer, there will definately be multiplayer requirements for the nunchunk. What about Metroid Prime? It is pretty likely to have multiplayer after hunters and will most certainly need the nunchunk used in it.

    Wow. 4 orange Gamecube controllers? We can't even find one!


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    For the core gamer, buying controllers for games they know they're going to love, such as Metroid Corruption, is simply water under the bridge.

    However, for the more budget conscious person, I have news for you:

    Nintendo is going to license their products out to third party hardware manufacturers, as they always do, so don't be surprised if you see a Wiimote and nunchuck that are designed better than Nintendo's for around $30 bundled.

    I'm pretty sure that Nintendo said to IGN that the majority of Wii games won't require the Nunchuck controller. It may seem like a lot of games do now but in the grand sceme of things it won't be a that big of a number.

    Seconded. As I mentioned earlier, you're going to run into more instances where the alternative uses for the Wiimore will come into play than the nunchuck being necessary.

    There might even be an option with some games where the Wiimote and nunchuck become equivalent to the GameCube controller, so you could mix and match using both simultaneously... or more interestingly, use 4 of each for a total of 8 players.
