Incase you missed it, the real "controller" part of it is the sensors that detect how it's being moved, not the buttons.

IGN has a nice writeup about how this thing can be used (link). This controller offers up all sorts of possibilies for new gaming genres and ideas, I'm genuinely looking forward to it.

the more I think about it the more I like this controller. Imagine a Zelda where you can control how the sword moves by moving your hand? Or a boxing game where you can actually throw the punches? If done right, this controller could be the next big things.

Yeah or it can end up like every other gimick device nintendo has released for its consoles... Since they said you would be given a choice to use a normal controller, I will end up using it.

They show in the trailer the player swinging wildly yet they don't show how he would do the motions for the swing and continue to move and dodge in a game like zelda or even boxing... They want to lower the difficulty of using alot of buttons but they just added the difficulty of a crap load of cordination between the joystick in one hand and manuevers in the other...

I think it's one of those things people will enjoy the first month, it will be different and interesting, and then after the initial hype wares down, people will become bored and sick of putting so much physical activity into a game.

Honestly, I don't see anything revolutionary about it....it seems like a rip-off of Nintendo's power glove, kind like a version 2.0 of sorts. Re-defined. But an idea that was there in the 80's. The technology just supports the idea much more these days.

I always wanted one of those "3D mouse" that actually worked. If the response is acurate, or "tight" as DEaD_IRiS called it, it can be great for shooting games and maybe for FPS games. A standard official controller will be available for extra cost (probably). I mean, how are you supposed to play NES games with that thing?
