Oh yeah, Nintendo's marketing plans.

Wow.

A key feature of the Wii is its one-handed controller that looks like a television remote control and uses motion-detection sensors that allow players to control the game by wielding it like a sword, waving it like a conductor's baton, or swinging it like a baseball bat.
LOL

you know, the controller is so awesome, theyre making a yakuza game where the controller is like a sword and you swing it where you want the sword to cut. personally, i think im gonna buy the revolution before i buy a xbox360 OR a ps3, because it just looks so much better.

The controller has it's uses in certain games, but it's just too unorthodox, especially for first-person shooters.

Yeah, that steering wheel is pretty creative. Even if it's fake, it's a very innovative idea.
