    So what do you think about console FPS gaming?
    Personally I think that up til now there has been no real FPS gaming on consoles, using a joypad for FPS is just total crap, moving and aiming is way too slow and unaccurate, well now we have the Wii coming up with some serious competition for the mouse / keyb controls and I think that if the wiimote targeting is fast enough we might have a new era of FPS coming.
    Personally I'd want nintendo to skip the analog stick/nunchuc attachment for FPS and create a controller that would integrate digital movement keys for the left hand, In FPS, analog sticks are too slow and I think that using the + keys on the same hand that you use for targeting might bee too much to handle on one hand.

    i think racing would be cool but im not sure about fps.... i rented some fps on the ps2 and played some on the 360 and they werent that great, like infernocs said it is a hassle to turn around ( maybe cuz i play WoW and its easy to turn around and manuever in there lol) but yeah WASD!!!!

    I was talking about a left-hand controller for movment, don't really care about that stupid looking attachment, It's way too big to be used with one hand in FPS games and I can't see how you would control movment with that thing.

    it has the joystick built onto it so you can use that for movement. also how is it too big? its smaller than the average light gun and only a little bigger than the wiimote

    is it me or does that blaster gun have a wii mote inside it. look at the top of it that sticks out (where the bullet come out). I just thought it was a gun that had motion sensing on it i didnt know you put the controller in it.

    a shell is a plastic holder that holds controllers like the wiimote and the numchuk and make them look like eg a gun the buttons you see is the wiimote and the numchuk's buttons

    So far in FPS domination: WASD+Mouse > Controller

    With the Wii, how well will it handle? We'll have to see. So far, it has to be at least: WASD+Mouse > Wiimote > Controller.

    My thoughts: With aiming, the Wiimote and Mouse will most likely have the same accuracy and will only depend on your own preference. Movement (very key in all shooters) will possibly make the keyboard still the dominant one because the Joystick on the Nunchuck just isn't faster than WASD. The mouse also helps you move around by aiming in the direction you want to go, fast and easy. The Wiimote can't turn as fast as the mouse so movement won't be as precise as mouse+key. So in conclusion, most likely: Wiimote = WASD+Mouse > Controller in aiming. overall i think that still WASD+Mouse > Wiimote > controller. At least i think the Wiimote will most likely dominate the controller in a sniping match.

    in my opinion, i will preffer using the wiimote. because u hold it like a gun, whereas u just click a button on the mouse.

    So long as they make sure that their turning sensitivity is beefed up a little. I want to be able to turn around without dieing.

    The more I think about this the more I belive the Wiimote will not reach the same accuracy and speed as a mouse/keyb combo no matter what buttons they put on it.

    Anyway the best would probably be to use the analog stick for scrolling and forward/backwards movement and then moving the screen would be controlled by holding a button while aiming, and releasing the button would hold the screen in place allowing for accurate aiming while still beeing able to sidescroll and move backwards/forward.
