    I didnt really know how to title this, and i dont really know how to word this acrosss but im gunna try [​IMG]

    So i feel the Wii is gunna/has come out on top this xmas, and thats due to its inovation, that fact its done what no console has done before

    And i dont want to change that, i dont want to take that away from Nintendo

    But i feel, for the Wii to the ultimate console, to appeal to everyone, i think it needs a normal styled controller too

    maybe a gamcube shaped one, but wireless, with rumble and the motion sensing shizzle, much like Sony (hiisssssss) have done with the PS3

    Ive yet to use a Wii, so my opinion could drastically change the minute i play it, but for games like Splinter Cell, and Tony Hawks, a normal controller would be easyer and better suited
    Fighting games deffinatly, SSBB is a gd example



    ugggggggggg, this has all come out in a mess of words, but hopefully ive got across what iwas trying to say

    the Wii controller is awesome, hands down, but giving players that extra option cant be wrong, can it?


    EDIT: It's 3am here btw, please excuse the poor spelling and bad grammar

    So you're saying they should have a "normal" controller, like normal shaped (D-pad on left, buttons on right)? This is innovation, baby. This IS the norm now [​IMG]

    FWIW, theres always the arsenal of...
    Wiimote
    Nunchuck
    Classic controller
    and Cube controller

    Maybe they'll release yet another one to add to the lineup XD. Oh yeah, and when I get one, maybe I'll get a Cube controller for it....the Wavebird!!! [​IMG]

    but wouldnt that defeat the innovative control...without that its just a gamecube with a slightly better graphics and new interface...

    im not trying to defeat the inovation, but their are gunna be games the come out that just wont work with the Wiimote
    and, i dunno, i think i must have a for of OCD, but if games did apear on the Wii that used the GC controllers, id want one that had the glossy Wii finish etc

    i dont want this to out sounding like im against this wii controlls, cus im not, but their will ultimatly be games where the wiimote wont work well with it
    and instead of pluging in ur black/purple controller, or playing with your grey wireless rumbleless motionsensorless Wavebird, have a controller that is like a Wavebird, but has rumble, and has motion sensing still

    I think the ideal controller would be a Wiimote glued onto the Classic controller (not literally). Motion sensing, pointer ability, rumble, wireless, Classic controller, without the two feet of wire and the ergonomical equivalent of a brick dangling from it while you're playing, like with the Classic controller.

    I expect a third party will make something like that as soon as more Classic controller games come out. And, of course, much much modding in the meantime.

    The classic controller is already out and it has been confirmed that it will be used for SSBB.

    Do you have to use the Classic Controller for SSBB or is it just an option?

    Optional. You can also use the GCN controller. Furthermore, given the simple nature of SSB controls in the past games, they could probably map all the moves to the wiimote/nunchuck combo and you could use that (without motion sensing) as well.

    Why would you want to? Anyone who has played Zelda on the Wii for a moderate amount of time knows the new benefit of playing games that even don't use a ton of motion sensing with a split controller design. Extra comfort comes from holding one part in one hand and the other part in the other hand. It totally beats having an old style controller held in front of you.

    Wat im sayin is, that, ultimatly, one of two things is gunn happen

    1) a game franchise is gunna come to the Wii, and have Wii controlls added, but ultimatly not working

    or

    2) a game franchise wont come to the Wii because the controll system wont work with that game


    hopefully, their wont be many of these games, but if this is the case, id much rather have a Wii specific normal controller, with all the motion sensing and shiz, instead of using a GC controller

    As I said: The classic controller is out, it does everything you want. There simply is no need to put motion sensing into it. The Wiimote/Nunchuk Combo does that. The classic controller is for playing a game the classic way with two analog sticks, too many buttons and two hands holdig one pice of plastic. How would you incorporate motion sensing into that? Of course, it's still connected to the Wiimote and the Wiimote could probably snap onto it with a simple pice of plastic to add motion sensing and pointing but I seriously don't see any point in that. Nintendo has planned for all of it, though.
