    umm, i thought it looked crappy before that trailer, now im in no doubt! a one handed controller, I think it could be the final nail in the coffin for nintendos console life.
    To top it off, the fly swatting game will probably be the best the revolution has to offer.

    I think it`s hella cool. Loved the sword fighting game. They`d better make a starwars version of that.

    I think it`s awesome. the only problem is that casual gamers wont play it. People whod iss it just aren`t craeative enough to think of it`s uses. Imagine like a first person LoZ.

    "it`s only a little remote control!"

    Yes, a remote control that has infinite flexibility thanks to it’s peripheral port, can work like a mouse through 3d space, sense all forms of tilt, has rumble and has sent the development community into a whirlwind of buzz about what can be done with it. Seriously, it’s a pretty sophisticated piece of hardware. For all of you who wonder how the Game Cube games will work with this, it’s been stated that there will be a shell made for it that when docked will closely resemble the wavebird controller.

    Oh... Another one of these arguments where no one lets you say you don`t like it... Well I`ll say it anyway. I don`t like it. However fun it may be for a while and in first person shooters etc. it will probably lose its appeal after not too long. I mean, it would be good for some games, but not for all. So can you just let people have their opinion instead of shouting at them for not liking something. Sheesh.

    "the only problem is that casual gamers wont play it."
    The controller is a risk ill give you that, but nintendo are lagging in the market and they cannot afford to lose the people who arent hardcore gamers, and the reason people will buy things is because they are tried and tested and look good, not because theyre the new spangly thing, i mean the playstation 2 has a 1 handed controller glove, how many of you own one? very few id guess because they dont work well with people who just want something they can pick up and play.

    "I think it`s awesome. the only problem is that casual gamers wont play it."

    the reason they made it this way is to draw in casual gamers. They know that any hardcore gamers are going to buy it anyways. If you don`t like it, you might end up buying it just to see what it`s like. That`s the whole plan.

    I have I question.why does everyone hate it?are you afriad to get up and swing your arms around for once in your life!come on the point is that you do what the person does in the game.you swing the controller you move the sword,bat,drum stick,etc.!and with the graphics look at the Gamecube and the XBOX.I dont know about you but they both pretty much looked the same depending on the game.I bet one of you was about to say"What?are you blind?"no im not.LOOK!GO LOOK!they are the same thing!same as the new consoles.they will all end up looking the same.I for one cant wait to chop monsters upwhen they come out with a zelda game.if you think about it.this is unlimted.notice the guy with the controllers in both hands playing the drums.now think about boxing.each controller is one fist.you punch in real life you punch in the game.think about.if you cant think anymore im sure devlopers will.im running out of room so yeah um......think

    exactly, you guys arent catching the part where it plugs into an outer shell. it will fit into the center of a standard conroller, so it will be the PS3 controller but better! if it was just the little remote thingy, i would hate it, but the creative folk at nintendo realized how irritating that would be, and modified it.

    REPOST, and it sucks. I have to give them credit, though, at least they didn`t make a controller as crappy as the Gamecube controller... ugh...

    Do what Microsoft did and rip off Sony`s PS2 controller design... not the ugly PS3 ones, the PS2 ones. Those are the best, followed by the XBox controller.

    WOW your statements are so horribly wrong and crappy.
    1) The only reason you say it sucks is because you don`t want to try anything new
    2) WTF is wrong with the gamecube controller?
    3) Microsoft did not copy off the PS2 controller, they copied of the Sega Dreamcast controller. Look it up.

    To all the naysayers about Nintendo`s failure to enter the run in graphics: Do you not still play your NES? That was Nintendo, and that wasn`t superb graphics. The thing is, Nintendo consistently comes up with fantastic gameplay: Zelda, Mario and Pikmen to name but a few fantastic releases.

    Besides, who says they can`t compete this time around?

    Can you stop using the fact that it can slot into a controller as an argument? Last time I checked we were talking about how we don`t like the actual remote control shaped one. I mean, I don`t think the controller comes with its shell system straight away (correct me if I`m wrong, not that I need to ask, you lot jump at the chance) so you have to pay extra. Also, the extra controller shows nintendo was nervous aboiut how the new controller is interpreted, big leap?

    ^^^^theres gonna be online and theres a regular controllor with some games to play what will now be called old fashion.rumble would be cool with a gun game like you shoot it and its like you are really holding a gun and not sure if I undersood but are you saying there is a wire on the controller?no its wireless so you can run around freely.how it works.....I am not sure but you bet its gonna be accurate.I think it will just have a thing that it has track your postiton in the 3-D inverment like you put sensors around the room.and gosh exercise is good for you!!!!so does that anwser stuff for you?oh!and what did you mean never mind?like you found this out already.....well then this is for the people who don`t know.....and lastly its not for little kids.just becuase they dont have grand theft auto or games like itdoesent mean its for three year olds.ok im going to play on nintendo.
