    The Wiimote is to take 2 AA batteries and turn them into 60 hours of gameplay. Should the player be using the sensor bar, however, then the time is cut in half to 30 hours.
    So what Wii games won't use the sensor bar? Virtual Consoles games?

    Yeah I agree, because I never bought a Gamecube, and don't want to buy Gamecube controllers for just Super Smash. But I may have to end up buying some Gamecube controllers anyway, because I chose not to get a Gamecube, and I missed quite a few awesome games. And I especially want HM: Magical Melody for Cube.

    Yeah, that's correct, atleast for the games that came from previous consoles like the NES, SNES, and N64 games. However, there will be new franchises created for VC by independent developers, which could use the sensor bar.

    I thought the sensor bar was already smaller than that?

    Here's a pic posted on this site of the sensor bar:



    Isn't that smaller than two pencil's placed end to end?

    Maybe they mean in width, like two pencils glued side-by-side

    Yeah...or two pencils that have been sharpend down...a lot?

    Hopefully they were just describing it poorly and it's gotten smaller than how it's pictured, not that that's a bad size, but the smaller, the better.

    Also, I think it would have been a really smart move by Nintendo if they had allowed you to save your controller settings for every game in the controller's memory so you could just bring your controller over to your friends how and be ready to play, rather than having to recalibrate. Maybe they will after all or maybe, later on, they'll release a wiimote that has more memory storage? It can't be that difficult!

    Thats 60 HOURS not MINS and it'd be used for example in the VC games where there isn't any rumble, sensor use, speaker use etc and instead you're just powering the bluetooth wireless in the controller. Though I agree with previous posters about the battery issue and I also think they'll release their own rechargeable ones that take the place like you can get on remote control cars/boats/whatever.

    I tought the sensor bar was a lot smaller. We just have to wait and and see. I liked the fact that you could save your preferences of one game on the wii-mote.
