    wasup people

    i just joined recently and have been reading alot of interesting things about the wi on this forum

    problem is i still am not sure if i want a wii?!?! basically i want to convince my lil bro to buy the wii!! he has a gamecube and likes it!!

    but he is not convinced that the wii will actually survive in the gaming market

    if someone could answer these questions then i will tell him and try and convince him!

    so my fellow wii fans i leave it in your hands to convince my lil bro to purchase a nintendo wii!!

    1} firstly he complains of your arm getting too tired playing games like warioware, wii sports etc. sometimes you can be in an energetic mood and then sumtimes you just want to sit on the couch playing and eating nachos!! so what answer can i give him?

    2} he is a need for speed fan and was so close to buying the wii until he found out the controls for the game! tilting the controller to turn and stuff! he says thats kids stuf, wierd coz hes only 12 but hey... :confused:

    3} we have a hd ready tv downstairs in the living room but a tiny ass tv upstairs in his room so can the wii do alright on a small tv? and the bed is right nxt to the tv so do you need alot of space to play?

    4} he is a mad footy fan and loves fifa and pro evo but he wouldnt trust the wii because the controll would be wierd he says...

    so those are the questions for now! phew...

    if anyone could help it is well appreciated and thanks for your time! oh yeah...

    peace and chicken grease!

    1. u dont have to make crazy wide movements, most of the videos/trailers are exagerated. u can flick ur wrist if u preffer.

    2. err... thats his opinion, but ps3 will also use tilting in racing games.

    3. TV size doesnt matter.

    4. some games allow u to use the gamecube controller and might just use the wii flat on its side without anything too special.


    :D

    The remote is apparently really sensitive..i.e....u can either take huge swings with it or u can lax out on the couch and just flick ur wrist.....as for weather he will want one or not,,,if your willing to wait then wait for them to be hireable at your local video store and take one for a test drive....that will be the best option if ur not sure about it. this way your not wasting your money if you dont like it.

    Well, the Wii can play Gamecube games, so he dosen't need to sacrafice his games.
    Yes, that is the most sterotyped thing about the Wii, that you have to do huge movements, most people don't know it isn't true.
    If he wants to play while eating nachos then let his just put in a Gamecube game and play it like that.
    Oh, and there is a pause button by the way, haha.

    1) Umm you don't get tired unless your a fat lazy bum.

    2)Your brother is a kid and tell him he is. Hes dumb. And by the way, tell him he wont regret it if you get need for speed.

    3)You need probably around arms length around you area. And tere is supposed to be a HD cable for the wii coming :|

    4)Don't worry you can still play your normal Games for GCN, so you dont have to worry just play fifa on GCN, if he doesn't like it. By the way i think that Madden was supposed to be one of the great games coming for the wii. Its pretty similar to Fifa[i think] So You probably won't be using motion sensing very often

    No, he was just a little rude, haha. By the way Madden and Fifa are different! Fifa is "futball" and Madden is "American Fut/Football"

    I don't think anyone has mentioned this but, you need to be a fairly medium distance away from the sensor bar, otherwise you'll have problems with the controller. There have been a few videos about it, where someone has been standing too close, and the sensor bar has been unable to pick up the movements correctly.

    1) You CAN make very exagerated moves, but a very small movement will do just fine. For instance, in Zelda, when you fish, you can either make a huge casting motion, or just flick your wrist. There would be no reason to get tired. It's like saying you don't want to get a PS3 because pressing buttons will make your thumb tired.

    2) Why would that be kid-ish? It is replicating real-life. You tilt the Wii-Mote as if you are holding a real steering wheel. And last time I checked, kids weren't behind the Wheel of a car.

    3) You can play the Wii on any size TV, just like you can play any other video game system on any other TV. You don't aim from the TV size, the Wii measures your actual movements, the TV doesn't. You can have a 2" TV and still play fine.

    4) The controls for that game are actually quite cool. My next door neighboor is a huge football fan, and he also has played this Football game. He said the controls felt great, and were actually natural. Same goes for every Wii game.

    back far enough so the sensor bar can detect the movements without it thinking they are to big, i would say regular distance, the closet maybe being 2-3 feet, idk, regular gaming distance is a good bet, however far enough to stay now will be good enough for it, its not that big of an issue.
    and there is Mario Strikers which is a soccer game that is pretty much insane! Its coming out next year and will probably have online play!
    PS: tell him Sovieto is getting a Wii, then he'll want one....they all want one after they found out im getting one.........:shifty:
