    Think about it. Will this console come with a recommendation on television size so that the new controller works? And will the tv size effect the quality of the gameplay?

    I guess my portable television is out tof the question.

    it would theorhetically work, you'd just feel like you're really overexagerating the movements on the screen i think.

    the sensor will be the same size no matter the size of the tv (i think), so if the tv is too big you could end up trying to move too far and overshoot what you were aiming for as well (the exact opposite of the small tv scenario)

    in the end it will just take a few minutes of getting used to playing it on your setup


    edit: actually i think i've heard something about calibrating the wiimote which will probably practically eliminate this problem all together as it will prolly involve pointing to the outer edges of the screen to get an idea of your range of movement

    i'm sure some company will make all the right attachments for that (nintendo usually does, then other companies make their own too)

    And as for the computer monitor part, i'm sure that will be fine with the Wii, as all the motion sensors are built into the bar that goes on the top of your television... unlike the classic NES gun that communicated with the television (i'm pretty sure at least :lol: )

    A larger tv would be nice, but not totally essential.

    I would think that the TV size doesnt matter, but you do have a point.

    I would say that you would want to have atleast a 20+ Inch screen. Anything smaller would not work well and it would be a strain on the eyes.

    I think the sensor bar is not limited by the size of the TV. Its something I'll be watching as we approach launch as my screen is almost 9 feet wide. My guess is that you will calibrate your range of motion and screen size, similar to how you calibrate a palm pilot when you first turn it on or hard reset it.

    so does the sensor bar go on top of the tv? because my tv has a curved top. (not flat)
