    Sure its good to get a 360 but if you want to play most of the games you'll need a HD tv because trying to read text in the games on a standard TV is just too difficult. I tried to play dead rising and you start off easy but the text is waay to hard to read at a distance on a standard tv.

    Halo is a good game but I never opted to buy it or play it more at a friends house because of the controller configuration. Two joysticks for one character. That's bloody confusing. It was the main reason why I lost so many times on multiplayer mode.

    I've also played metroid prime, which is as good as Halo and has a much easier to control controller layout. Why is it the standard for many FPS to utilise two joysitck configuration?

    I'm a bit doubtful about the Wii motion sensitivity having the potential to replace the two joystick config found on most FPS and leave it with one joystick used for moving and aiming the Wiimote at the screen.

    Yeah, if I could afford an HDTV I would, but can't yet. My 27" tube TV has component inputs which help quite a bit and I really haven't had trouble reading anything on it.

    As for Halo, if you don't like Halo's controls, you must dislike quite a lot of FPSs since the majority of them, as you say, are made this way. When I played Metroid Prime for GC I thought it was interesting, but the controls were god-awful. Seriously, I need to be able to move with one hand and aim with the other. Still, the wiimote/nunchuk combo will really be the best because it will feel like you're actually aiming a gun for a change. If the next Metroid had the same controls as the GC, I probably wouldn't even consider picking it up, to be honest.

    Hmmm yeah... I did have a look at Metroid Prime Corruption control layout and configuration on the Wiimote - aim by pointing the Wiimote at the screen (Similar to Zelda) and move with the Nunchuck. From what I've read the people who tested Metroid when it came out as a demo for the Wii complained about the moving the aiming screen with the Wiimote - a tad bit laggy in response. i'm sure Retro studios have fixed that up by now. So far that's all I know about Metroid Prime Corruption.

    Yeah the controls were a bit awful in Metroid Prime 1 and 2 since it required you to use every single button on the GC to execute many weapons and items.

    I hate to say this to many fans of FPS but I'll only play them again if the dual joystick configuration is removed from the system. This is what I'm looking forward to with the Wii.
