    Here are the best bits from the article:

    I agree the speaker was the best choice as it adds to the realism the controller it self creates. With the speaker it will make it seem as though you actually firing a bow in Zelda and shooting your arm cannon in Metroid:D .

    Another genius idea by Nintendo;) .

    i read this somewhere before, but does this mean that the wiimote wont have rumble? i think it will, but this article just said that "Controllers until now have used rumble, but we felt that rumble would be insufficient, and ended up keeping the speaker in." they didnt confirm keeping the rumble in.

    I think he meant rumble wouldn't be enough, so that's why they also included the speaker.

    Here's a pic from Nintendo's Wii site, which shows rumble; I know this picture is also someone's signature picture on this site, but I forget their name:

    That's a good thought Nate, but that picture's from along time ago, I would like to see a more recent pic. Then maybe the rumble part would be gone...?

    It's not necessarily an old picture. I found it on the Wii Controller page from Nintendo, so if they planned on getting rid of rumble, then they would probably have gotten rid of that picture.

    No, that would mean they would have to take it off every site, or ask every site to take it off. They could never get rid of it.

    Well, actually, a lot of Wii sites still use old Wii pics, even though Nintendo has released new ones, like the Wiimote on this page, which is a photoshoped version of one of the first pics of the Wiimote. You can also see a lot of outdated Wii pics on wiicentre.com.

    Do you really think they're not going to include rumble??

    Remember this story about Sony's PS3 controller?

    I'm just saying it's completly possible to have rumble and motion sensetivity in one unit and it work just fine and if it weren't a feature, Nintendo would change the picture and wouldn't care if other sites didn't change their pictures.

    I'm not saying I don't want it to happen, I want it to happen bad. I hope that they include both, it would be a mistake if they didn't.

    That just confirms that they could never get rid of old ones...

    OK, are you saying that Nintendo would care if certain pictures were still used by sites other than it's own because that just isn't realistic?

    If they changed that picture where the rumble feature is displayed, they wouldn't give a crap if some sites were too lazy to change their pictures.

    Sony changed the controller from that boomerang-looking-thing to what it looks like now, but I'm sure there are some PS3 forums that still have that picture as their banner or whatever and Sony doesn't care because they expect people intrested in their console to go to their site where the most up to date pictures are displayed.

    ....so there:lol: jk

    I'm just saying they could pretty much never get rid of the pics, that's all:tard:

    Here's that boomerang-looking controller, which will no longer be used:
    [​IMG]

    Here is the actual PS3 controller:
    [​IMG]

    And no, your eye aren't playing tricks on you. The PS3 controller looks almost identical to the PS2 controller.

    It's sort of too bad they didn't go with the boomerang because while it may have looked a bit goofy, it also looked somewhat comfortable and unique.

    Sony, Sony, Sony...why do you have to be so predictable?

    Interestingly, even though they say they can have up to 7 controllers, on the back there are only number 1-4 with LEDs... I mean of course, no games are gonna be made for 7 players, but you would think that if they can officially have up to 7 controllers they would have 7 numbers on the controllers.
