    Hey everyone. Well i dunno about you guys but i'm definately buying a nintendo wii [​IMG] But i just realised something today...if you have to put those sensor thingies on the tv so that your controller works the way it should...then does that mean that you have to have the tv like in the middle of the room so that you can have space to moove around and stuff?? Cuz if that's the case then i got some serious issues xD My room is already tiny as it is and i've put the furniture so that i could utilise the space i had and still be able to move around [​IMG] (and no i can't just turn the tv...don't ask me why [​IMG])

    For most Wii games you probably won't need to move around too much.

    from what ive seen, the most movement i have seen is the swing of a arm (and it seemed like if it was being exaggurated to make it seem more exciting) so im pretty sure it would just be the flick of a wrist or so- at most.

    The sensor bars will adjust automatic to the environment, so no your tv does not need to be in the middle of the room.

    A lot of fat nerds can finally lose weight because of the Wii and have fun at the same time...Revolutionary I say.

    As for myself, it would really help me get into shape.

    I'd rather keep the movement to a minimum. I don't like getting all excited about games and... invoking emotion. It's just.. not apathetic, and I must be apathetic.

    In all seriousness, your arm would get pretty sore after a lot of arm-flinging and such. I'm not sure but if you watch the Super Mario Galaxy gameplay video from E32k6 you'll see there's not that much movement. Looks good to me.

    movement doesn't involve apathy.
    All those "fat nerds" get their workouts from DDR already [​IMG]

    Movement does involve apathy. After all, what inspires you to move? Apathetic people would not react to those emotions or feelings. Or is that laziness sneaking up on me?

    Believe me this thread isn't as bad as it could be, nothing worth locking this thread over.

    Anywho, you'll be able to play Wii with very little movement, plus the wii controller is incredibly light so no need to worry about your arm getting tired.

    Wario Ware: Smooth Moves will prefer you to move around, but it's more then possible to play it without.

    as long as you have enough room to sit down and move your arms freely, there should be no problem...like The Teej said, there will be some games like Wario Ware which "want" you to stand up and move your body, but any game can be tricked...but you won't need to stand up and move around for games like Mario Galaxy, Red Steel, Metroid Prime 3, and most of the other games that have been announced so far

    choose the game in the first place. either it has to send you running for a mile or simply banging the controller on your friend's face.

    it's choice.
