    Found these images while browsing a few sites earlier today, decided to attach them here for you guys.

    Looks like trade show images but they really get upclose with the hardware.

    Interesting points are the AA battery slots for the Wiimote and also the sensor bar is waaay smaller than i originally imagined.

    Enjoy :)

    hey any one kwow if theyll sell the wiimote and nunchuck seperate or together b/c a lot of games seem to require it. like madden zelda and redsteel. I think it would be stupid not to sell them together.

    i cant imagine having to buy the control parts (except for vc control) seperate from the console unless you needed to.

    I will hate that if you have to buy some of the controllers separately!

    to the comment made about the wiire in the back being huge, also remember there is a sticker that says trade show sample, so this isnt the final production of the wii and the wiire, also i think the sensor bar is sold with the system on launch but i am not sure, also i think that they will sell the controller attatchments seppereatly but i doubt they will be more that 19.99

    And I don't think the final Wiimote will take AA batteries. There will most likely be a charger.

    Now I see why the Wii is so small: so they can fit all the attatchments and accessories in the same box! xD

    the cord looks so big because the wii is so small, its a perspective thing. though it could also still change

    You should put a warning in the title to make sure people are sitting down. Had I been standing, my legs would most certainly have given way! Sooooo hot.

    Anyone notice that in the second pic (WiiMote w/ battery lid off), the top right terminal has no contact on it? Anyone who knows anything about electrisity would know that this is not a good combination.

    ***Edit***
    I'm kinda surprised to be the one to bring this up, but any new rumors on the mysterious orange port on the back?
