    My thoughts exactly. But with a much larger screen. Also kinda like that cable thing that you could use to connect a GameBoy Advance to a GameCube and get special features in some games like Zelda.

    weak, all the hype was for nothing this does not deliver nothing more than the ps3 and xbox 360,this is slightly better Wii with little improved graphics to get close to the 360 and ps3.

    waste of money i bet the controller is much more expensive then the console it self lol.

    Large touch screen, gyroscope, accelerometer, microphone, 2 speakers, camera - and it's only controller! Nothing new? I don't agree.

    Just wait and see how much this controller will set you back with the console. And if you're thinking of doing any local multiplayer, you're going to have to invest in at least two of them.

    Actually the tech demos have some pretty hardcore effects I think its quite a powerful system, it'll be a while before we see anything but tech demos though. I like the controller I can think of a few great uses for it even for games like battlefield just to clear up the HUD and stuff not to mention ingame video calling which would be sweet.

    And no matter how expensive it costs to build you can be very sure Nintendo are never going to go to market with a 500+ pricetag. Complete backwards compatibility with wii peripherals (wiimotes, balance boards etc) was a great idea.

    Well - I can imagine how "ergonomic" would that controller be after a few hours of the play - holding such brick for longer times would be anything but convenient ... Also - no word of supporting the DVD / BD media which I believe was also bad decission on the original Wii (all PS1, PS2 and PS3 made big change on the market by introducing affordable CD, DVD and BD players at the time in the addition to the console itself) and the "proprietary" high density media disc - bleh! Most probably screwed up BD or something like that.
