    Yes we need it. I can believe so of you people. Alot of people were complaining about not having 1:1 on games but now we get the chance and your complaining about it. Get over it. It probably wont even cost to buy. Its going to come free with a good game and you know it. Even the crap ass Zapper came with a good game.

    Despite all the negativity that some people may feel, i can safely say that this is going to make the conference tomorrow much more interesting.

    I have a feeling this will eventually be integrated into future wiimotes.

    More add ons huh? ... yeah now i have a wii mote, a nunchuck, a classic controler, a gamecube controller, oh yah and now i gotta get sumthing for the wii mote to work better...
    Really nintendo is starting to get really annoying, but mayyybe now we will see more interactive game play.
    The secret game ... my bet is on Zelda with kick ass sword movements ... what else would make gamers buy wiis and add ons ... the classic games no less.
    I agree that the wii is definatly overpriced .. i didnt realised it until i bought it... and i feel like its an xbox with mote control ... i was super disappoined with how basic the controller is ... red steal and zelda's sword movements was a big lie ...

    Yeah double stack adapter time ha ha.

    This looks like it could be cool, I wonder if it will work with the perfect shot well since it has the plugin on the bottom of the gun.

    I guess we will see.

    This better be quite cheap, from the looks of it's size it probably will be. Just another thing to get working with homebrew games [​IMG]

    From the size of it.. I'm guessing 15 to 20 USD..

    Nintendo will probably bundle it with some game that needs it and selling it for 40 bucks.. and at some point, being integrated in the Wiimote..

    Leave it to Nintendo to find ways of making easy money.
    They obviously had this technology long ago but only decided to release it when their profits stopped skyrocketing.

    If they announced it a day early, they knew people would start criticizing it hard. They must be having an extremely awesome demonstration at E3 to have done this.

    I find that kind of weird. Why take the time to announce it the day before there conference when they could've announced it at the conference?

    Why don't people just not get it(even if they offer it for free which they probably won't) if they think Nintendo is just trying to make a quick buck?

    Unless Nintendo releases a game that leaves you with no choice but to buy it. I can see a new redesigned Wiimote sometime soon.

    Interesting...
    But I don't think it would be bundled with a game. If you have 4 Wiimotes, and actually want one for each, would Nintendo actually expect you to buy 4 of the same game?
    I don't think so anyway...

    I think this thing wasn't possible when the Wii was launched, or they simply thought it wasn't necessary by that time..
    My guess here is that they tried to make a game but noticed that it wasn't possible using the current Wiimote.. so they're releasing a better one so the game(s) can be made [​IMG]

    Really, if they wanted just some easy money, they would do like Sony with the Dual Shock 3 and release a new controller for 50 bucks, instead of a (hopefully) cheap add-on [​IMG]

    Won't this be incompatible with the Wii Wheel, Wii Zapper, Guitar Hero III controllers, etc?

    ofcourse it will be incompatible. but u probably dont NEED them with those controllers.

    or maybe, a new wii zapper:) for better shooting games:)

    didnt nintendo make the same move with the N64 rumble pack? You know, releasing a controller and then releasing some add-ons for it later?

    EDIT: Nevermind.. [​IMG]
