    Yeah, I agree batteries are the main con and would be a nuisance to replace.

    I have a wavebird for the GC and the batteries dont just go out they go in and out. so you can change the batteries before it goes completly dead.

    I think you will find that this doesn't solve the problem at hand.

    I personaly think that nintendo will find someway around the problem either with the light on the controler changing to a different colour to warn you or the game pausing when the controler signal stops or both.
    What do you call a button masher on the Wii?

    I'm sure they'll have something incorporated to pause/stop the game. X-Box has it for their breakaway controllers.

    Nintendo did that with the GB, I'm sure they'll do the same for the Wii controller. Where did you hear that the controller will run on AA batteries? Everything these days is rechargeable...

    i've seen the aa bit from gamespot....

    From about 5 paragraphs in:
    Though Nintendo still considered the units we were using to be prototypes, we reckon they gave a pretty good sense of the unit's heft. The controllers we had in our hands at the Tokyo Game Show were wired and weighed almost nothing. The wireless prototypes have a decent heft to them now, though. They use AA batteries, which will further add to the weight. At the moment, the main controller feels about as heavy as a Nintendo DS. The nunchaku weighs about as much as a cell phone. Holding both units in either hand feels fine, and the buttons are easy to reach.
    article

    They also say nintendo was claiming the controller as a prototype, so rechargable may yet happen....but this close to launch probably not, it was more likely just a safety statement in case some problem (ie the halogen rumor) cropped up and something had to change.

    What's to stop the game from just killing you off, if you are playing Twilight Princess and you are in a boss stage and your controller's batteries die out and the boss kills you, even when you are so incredibly close to beating it.

    This is something I don't really understand how it will work.
    Well I doubt you can do anything about the batteries dying, but you can jusst have extra batteries lying around. Though i doubt the batteries will run out too fast.

    Yea I mean my Wavebird lasts a couple months when I paly with it, so really 2 AA batteries isn't that much to worry about.
