    Just say your play Zelda and you get sick of constantly swinging your sword and aiming your bow, do you think there would be alterative controlls, like mabey being able to use the GCN controller for it, Not that im to fat and lazy to use my arm, but i usually play video games when im to tired or cant be bothered doing something else, and it will be annoying swinging my arm all over the place when im tired

    I'm sure it will. Pretty much all games these days have alternate control schemes. I'm sure you'll be able to use the GC-esque shell if you wish.

    GC controllers are compatible with the Wii, so I suppose so.

    Well since you can plug in GC controllers on top of the Wii, im sure you will be able to use them in the Wii version of TP just by simply changing a setting. Im pretty sure that Nintendo has thought about people getting tired of using motions to play the game so they more than liely come out with alternative controls.

    Probably with some games, but with games like wario ware and trauma center you'll have to stick with using your hands.

    Nahh not WW. Honestly I think it will decrease the fun factor a lot without using the Wiimote for WW. But I think that you will probably be able to use the Classic Controller or maybe even the GC Controller if you want to with games like WW.

    Why are you posting that in this thread. Make your own and put it in the Wii chat.

    Wow!? How did this thread get so off topic???

    Anyway, the ability to choose between the wiimote/nuchuk combo and the Gamecube controller would be nice, sort of how you can choose to play games on the DS with a stylus-scheme, or just use the buttons.

    Having said that, wouldn't programming a game to be playable with two completly different controllers add longer loading times, longer game-development since there would be two configurations to test and refine, and thus a higher cost per game??

    to use the GC controller the game would need to be programmed to use the other controller, personally even if you can use the classic or GC remote I will still use the Wii-mote, until I heard and saw the Wii in action I was totally out of the next set of consoles since the only new thing is better graphics, but a high end pc for less then the ps3 can get better graphics pumped out, but the Wii changes gameplay with the awesome controls so why step backwards on the revolution?

    Oh yeah, I was just saying if there are some games made for Wii that don't utilize the Wiimote/nunchuk well (which there inevitabley will be), then it would be nice to have the choice to use the Gamecube controller, since it was such a comfortable and intelligently layed out controller; the Xbox 360 controller is it's only competition, in my opinon.

    Seriously though, I think the wiimote/nunchuk will be the best controller EVER because it's perfect for almost every game, except those like SSBB, which would be so complex to play that they wouldn't work well.

    Isn't Nintendo going to release a gamecube controller shell that lets you connect the wiimote to it, giving you the motion sensetivity?

    Or, is the Classic Controller what I'm thinking of?:confused:

    That Gamecube shell thing is only IGN mockup of what is now the classic style controller.

    Like Homicidal_Gamer said you don't use the controller to swing your sword, so it probably won't be very tiring at all.

    Yeah, since nintendo said themselves thatat first you were going to swing the sword with the wii-mote, but they said it got tiring, so they changed that scheme.
