    I heared Nintendo didnt put too much into the controler (microphone,camera,ect.) because they want to keep it simple and easy to use. Do you think once everyone gets a feel for the controler, they will release other attachments? If so what kind of attachments?

    It would be cool if they made cases for the contoler for certain games to improve the expirience. For instance a steering wheel with a slot for the controler. Or maybe even a sword? Its nintendo were talking about, the sky is the limit!

    I think they will eventually have a steering wheel, just about every system has one.

    I think they might do some kind of boxing attachment.

    It was my understanding that the Wii would have a camera? I think I read it somewhere on this forum. Someone let me know if I'm wrong. And the controller has a little speaker, not a mic - but they're thinking about a headset right?

    I dont think it will have a camera as far as i hear. And those in the parenthesis were only things that they might have considered putting into the controler, i know it doesnt have a mic. and i have not heared anything about a headset but it wouldnt surprise me if they do make one.

    crap!

    Oh, I found an article that debunked the camera thing on the Wii. They claimed to prove the images fake since they had the photoshopped picture (with the "camera") next to the original. I was led astray by misinformation. :sick:

    the article is here, just in case anyone is curious:

    http://onnintendo.com/Index.aspx?page=1&post=39&year=2006&month=6

    It's actually kind of an old article. weird.

    In the Excite Truck preview they showed someone holding the controller horizontally for a steering wheel.

    I know you can use the controller horzontally for a steering wheel. But I think they will release some-type of steering wheel for the Wii oneday.

    I think 3rd party developers will make there own like a flight stick that comes with the game.

    and the wii is supposed to be cheaper to develop games huh?

    i cant imagine that many developers/ third parties will make many controllers period.

    actually a smart move by nintendo, no more third party cheap ass controllers being made.

    what's a smart move by Nintendo, I'm pretty sure NYKO will still try to make stuff for it.

    It's cheaper to develop the games for because it's internal hardware is a lot easier to work with than the cell processor and other garbage, for example, of the PS3.

    sorry i didnt eloberate like i wanted to. not many third partie hardware companies like madkatz, will want to mess with the whole wiimote thing.

    and controllers would cost alot of money to individual game developers, so i highly doubt many games will have "special" controllers.

    I see what you're saying. Yeah and if they made a special contoller (like for guitar hero) it would have to be bluetooth and recognizeable to the Wii, which would cost more for gamers. So ok, yeah I agree.

    While they may not want to deal with building a new wiimote from the ground up, I can definitly see them adding attachments; simple ones that could, for example, wrap around the wiimote to make it more comfortable to hold since it doesn't look very ergonomic when holding it horizontally.

    Does anyone think 3rd party developers will develop attachments for the nunchuk, or build a new nunchuk unit from scratch?

    That's why i think nintendo might get into making shells for the basic controller instead of new controllers all together!

    I thought the idea of the controller was to be universal. To make a whole new way of playing games and to make all games easily playable from a new and unique interface. All of you guys keep trying to think of add ons that will turn the wiimote back into some sort of familiar controller ie steering wheel, joy stick, standard controller. It shouldnt need these things, and if it does then why make it in the first place. I think the wiimote should be able to handle on its own. I think third parties (including madcatz) will at least develop shells and attachments, but possibly even wiimotes - it is there job after all - and of course we could end up seeing some really cool stuff from logitech and others of the sort - but they will likely just stick with Sony. And as for ergonomics - it may not look comfortable but im sure it fits nicely - anybody remember the dreamcast controller - first picture of that and I thought it would horribly uncomfortable but it fits in the hand better than any other Ive ever held. Just trust that the wiimote will work on its own and be comfortable - Nintendo are not idiots
