    I think Nintendo has realised that all there doing is PS2 ports and mini games collections.

    Well, since my previous post in here has been deleted since the thread is now a sticky, here it is again. xP))

    Well, I've started up my Wii, and it's a-****in'-mazing! But three things are kinda' buggin' me.
    One, when I moved the Wiimote around, it seems to be fine, but after a bit, I noticed it'd get kinda jittery and go off-track for a fraction of a second occasionally.
    Two, I've noticed that when I'm moving around the Wiimote, it's kind of... I dunno, off. It doesn't feel like it's in the right place, sometimes. Bugs me a bit...
    Three, I was playing Wii Sports, and with the baseball game, when I first held the "bat," it was working totally fine, and then I switched to pitching. When I went back to the batting position, the exact way I held the Wiimote the last time was doing something different. Instead of being over the Mii's shoulder, the tip was facing the camera angle.

    Anyone else having these problems? Any suggestions on how to fix or cope with them?

    If you use the Opera browser on your PC you'll probably be aware of the little shortcuts and mouse gestures the software uses to complete simple tasks.

    Well it seems some of these shortcuts have been incorporated into the Wii version and the Wiimote.

    Here's what's currently known:

    Refresh: B+ D-pad up
    Bookmarks: B+ D-pad down
    Search: B+ D-pad left
    Enter New Address: B+ D-pad right
    Back: B+ (-)
    Forward: B+ (+)

    There might be some more hidden around too.

    FINALLY! Its about time they noticed all the crap that has come out over the past year. Now the only question is if the third parties will actually listen.

    We can only hope...

    Plugged in Wii last night (after waiting 8 hrs in NYC cold). worked great, logged into my wireless access point and updated the firmware twice. played for a few hours. Turned the device off (went to standby, orange LED). Today, it stayed in standby mode and i could not recover from it. I turned off the power by holding down the power switch and LED went red. Hitting it again, it turned green, the screen shows absolutely nothing.

    I've tried different inputs and 2 other TVs - the Wii turns on, DVD drive spins up, but the screen is completely black -

    does anyone else have a similiar issue? There are no error codes reported;

    Game Developers will look at 3 things. Production costs, unit sales, and production time. This will determine the winner of the console wars. The one that can do all 3 the best will get the bulk of developers. The one that does this the worst will lose the console wars outright.

    After playing the Wii, i realized just how great shooters can be on the wii. Even the moh2 gameplay and graphics isn't the full potential of the wii and its still great. So with improved graphics, the wii can really be a leading console in shooters. All third parties has to do is work alittle harder

    Its about time someone said something. I was on EB games and I saw games for the wii that made me wanna throw my wiimote in the TV because of disgust. The console has great potential. Dont get me wrong, I <3 party games but there are just too many. I would love for the 3rd party developers to be creative and think out of the box.
