    Um actually you can use the wiimote without the sensor bar. In Virtual Console games, which can be either the original games for the NES and SNES you'll only be using the face buttons (the N64 games will probably require the Classic Controller shell because the N64 used a joystick, which the wiimote lacks). That's why the Wiimote is shaped the way it is; when turned sideways the wiimote's buttons are layed out just as the NES were.

    *EDIT* Just realized you also will be able to play Wii racing and flying games or basicly any Wii game that doesn't have an on-screen cross-hair because the sensor bar is only used to figure out where the wiimote is pointing on screen and how far away from the TV it is.

    Thats exactly what i thought. Most games just use the tiliting-motion-watsit inside the remote.

    I sure hope the Wiimote doesn't use two AA batteries especially when the life expectancy is only 60hours. That won't even last a week! They go for about a buck each...so thats like 2bucks every week for one Wiimote. And if we game a lot with friends then we're going to be spitting out money to buy those batteries!

    So you play 8-1/2 hours a day, 7 days a week? That is ridiculous. I think an average of 3 hours a day, 7 days a week is more realistic - thats still 21 hrs a week (or half of a standard work week) that should last your almost 3 weeks.

    And why would you buy new batteries every time. Spend 10 bucks the first time, get 4 rechargeables and a charger. They even sell 2900 mah batteries now. I read somewhere that standard duracells have 2850 mah (essentially the same) So one charge should last you the same as a regular battery - and all you pay is the cost of electricity from the wall, which isnt really that much. Make sure you get NiMH batteries, you can recharge them over and over again without reducing the life like you see in a cell phone battery
