I wasn't expecting anything else. Of course I hadn't really put much thought into the matter.
rechargable batteries are available in stores. Inconvenient that it won't have a docking station, but hardly a major issue.
I hardly see how this is a problem, the wireless X-Box 360 controllers don't come with rechargeable batteries standard...Judging from the title, it seems like a Sony fanboy will find any little nit pick to take a shot at Nintendo
Don't judge from the title. I've owned an NES, N64 and GCN (college kept me from the SNES). While I've never owned a PSX or PS2, my wife does, and I've never played one game on either (though I've had to help my wife through a few running and jumping puzzles - RPG's make gamers lazy).
Given that we've had several threads beating up on Sony (deservedly), and one asking us not too, I just figured we could use a short respite (until Sony's next goof). It's about the only bad Wii news I've heard in the past week, so why not toss the Sony boys a bone?
I'm more concerned about the "detection" device you need to stick on top of your TV... its... rather long :/
Oh well. This will give me an excuse to stock up on rechargable AAs like I have been meaning to do for years...
I have a digital projector, so Im more worried about the length of the cord that connects the bar to the system. I need about 16 feet minimum.
And no worry about the batteries. #1 Time to get rechargeable batteries. #2 Im sure they'll make a docking station to recharge them. #3 We are still months away from launch.
And its not too big of a problem anyway.
Dude, my nerdcock is mighty!
Does this thing even work with projection TVs?
Yes. It detects the receiver device, not your television. It should work with ANY TV.
Wow, thats it? The 360 controller also takes batteries but you know what. Both of them retain the rumble feature. I'm not trying to sound too negative man, but you're really grasping for straws if thats the only thing you can complain about the Wii.
Just trying to toss the sony fans a bone. It's a pretty scrawny bone, I admit, but since there have been some complaints that we've been bashing Sony too much, I thought I'd do what I could to spread it around.
I think the Sony fans got a much bigger bone with the name, the graphics, and the non-standard default controller. Looks like very few people care about any of that anymore though.
So, can anyone tell me how fast the 360 controller eats batteries? So I might be able to hazzad a guess to the Wii. Is it like, Remote control? Gameboy? Digicam?
Buying batteries is a fact of life.
To give sony its due, I do think the tilt thing is a good idea. I lean into driving and flying games, but their "our shit don't stink" approach pretty much burned me badly.
Thank God it takes real batteries. The last thing I want is a console controller that uses some recharchable expensive Li-ion battery. I've used the wavebird controllers forever and you can get a kit to add the dock for those, but I never bothered.
Don't worry, i'm against the Wii anyway, dumb name, and i don't wanna look like a moron swinging a controller around the room to play a game, PS3 or sadly 360 for me*on clearances of course*
