    sorry if this has been said before...

    not so much now (not because of choice), but back in the day i worked in an indie game shop, where the owner and i played games when it was quiet

    and before meeting up with my girlfriend i played games and then after the pub until the early hours i played games with mates..

    lets say on average at least 8 hours a day

    i only actually went to bed because my thumbs ached lol

    seriously, us hardcore gamers are gonna be throwing our arms all over the place for 8 hours everyday...

    ...are we gonna suffer or what?

    u dont have to throw your arms like on the adds. thats all exagerated. u can do suttle movements, flick of the wrists etc. any way u like.

    You can do very minimal movements, and it will still give you the same exact result. That's the beuty of it. =)

    I don't think we'll suffer as much as get some exercise. Which IMO, many gamers could use. And as most said it still repsonds to smaller movements. But honestly. When I am playing at home with no one around to watch, I am going to be going friggen nuts jumping around and flaling my arms like crazy. That's the fun of the Wii in the first place.

    dont get me wrong, i'm not 20 stone or anything... but even if you flick your wrists (hmmm), surely you'll get tired more than using a standard controller..

    .. for example..

    pointblank on psone, my arms getting real tired after a few hours of shooting (hmmm)

    believe me, the wiimote has given me ANOTHER reason to buy the wii, so i'm not slagging of the console or anything

    Though I'm under-age, I've tried beer when my parents offer it to me. >_> Which is kinda weird. xP I, myself, dislike the taste of alcohol. So, like he said... Soda, chips, and lollies. xP

    Doesn't anyone understand that Metroid Prime 3 commercial was OVEREXAGGERATED?

    It's not like you jump behind a couch and you roll.

    I would classify myself as a hardcore gamer :) I don't think i'll be tired though, it'll help reinforce my arm strength so i can pwn even more people in Tennis
