    ps2 controller

    i have a wireless ps2 controller (logitech, tis the only good ps2 wireless controller) and with rumble it lasts for over 50 hours on AA, it has a sensor that can tell when it is low and battery and kills the rumble and flashes a light on the controller. if the amount of power left can be sensed, why cant it be sent to the console. its entirely possible that the wiimote could pause the console when out of batteries, but imo i dont think it will happen.

    Hmmm, they may have some sort of docking station for the wiimote. *looks*
    Play nice or die.

    I kind of get the feeling that the console will be able to tell the difference between the controller being put down and it not sending a signal at all. I'm fairly confident that the Wii will have a method of pausing the game when the controller becomes "disconnected".

    Yes, there are some serious problems here. The danger of interference is never TOTALLY "dischargable" (nor should be those two "AA" - let's pray for them to NOT be "A-hA" instead!...

    I'm a little concerned about the need of having to buy a rechargable couple AA batteries and a recharging device as well. I think it kinda sucks. Consider how much faster could the vibration function turned ON discharge your batteries while you're very enthusiastically playing Twilight Princess... blah, that would SUCK!.

    Add to this an internal built microfone and the amount of hours with your Wiimote turned on before it is off could decrease dramatically. I don't know, just pure speculation (pretty much like everything else here... ).

    Some intelligent usage of this limited amount of reserved electricity and everything might function just fine for me (and us... I mean... "Wii"...).

    Playing a revamped (graphically speaking, of course) Mario Galaxy + some serious motion-sensitive controls and vibration (plus a built-in speaker for a more realistic aproach to the sound - as for example, the sound coming out of it's original, realistic point of origin e.g the sound of your baseball bat, which directly comes from, errrr, your baseball bat! And not from your Tv speakers!... - ) might be GREAT FUN and SATISFACTION POINT!.

    I'm anxiously looking forward to it.

    Maybe they don't use batteries but are like a Ipod.

    But I think that when Wii doesn't get a connection from the controller it goes onto pauze or something like that = D.

    Guys if we've throught of it then I have faith that a multi-million $ company who actually care about what they're selling us and aren't just throwing us a new grafix card in a box have all of this well in hand. Time will tell and have faith my children **makes the sacred sign of the "Big N"**

    maybe some onscreen warning which pauses it when the signal starts to fade?

    Maybe it'll be like MS wireless mice/keyboards, they have a low batery error message that popps up when the power starts to go low, you have a couple days from the message to change the batteries. Also, generally for wireless devices of any kind, the batteries don't just up and die, the range will start to shrink, so when you have to stand right next to the TV to get a signal, you know it's time to change the batteries. Also, as posted earlier, rechargeables. Anymore you can get a set of NiMH rechargeables with a charger for about the same price as the higer-end one-time-use batteries, but they last 3X longer and are rechargeable (also, NiMH batteries, unlike their predicessors, have no memory, meaning that their life is not shortened by half-charging and half-discharging, and their risk to electronics is all but eleminated).
