Possible, but poor solution. They really need to come up with something more elegant... like a nunchuck ripoff.

Is it worth it though, as a stopgap from just using a second wand in left hand?

After all this monoshock should still have a rechargeable battery, possibly rumble, an analog and/or a dpad, 2 to 3 buttons, BlueTooth, USB... how much cheaper can it be than a dualshock or an extra wand, and how much value would it seem to offer when compared to controllers you can actually use by themselves in other games?

I don't think I would buy one for $30, maybe the value perception is the downside to announcing and producing such an obvious and easy piece of engineering.

I would have assumed that you could aim a lot better with the wand... but it didn't really seem like it helped.

The shaking of the wand thing was okayyy



What, holding a PS3 controller in one hand and the Wand it the other? Are they serious??

The wand was an afterthought since it was announced, but it's even more so with this clumsy solution.

That looks clumsy.

Does Wii Resi need two controllers?

It needs Wiimote and nunchuck.



Signature goes here!

I just grabbed a Wii Remote and a Dual Shock, and it really didn't feel too bad. TruckOsaurus is right. It could work.

But really, it's so early. By the time the wand does come out, there's going to be an alternative. It'll be fine.

actually it doesn't look ackward.

i likely get a third party add on. aiming it's precise and alot like RE4 wii.

I didn't do extensive testing but it felt like switching one finger from L1 to L2 while holding the DS3 in one hand was unstable. It may just be that I didn't find the right grip but this does mean the control scheme is very unintuitive. A half-DS3 controller would have been a good idea to make this better.

The Break-Apart controller would have been perfect... Wish SONY had went with that for the PS3....

Now Sony, make a PS3 nunchuk so this game is playable. Thanks.



lol...Nintendo must be pissed. "We thought of this damn it"

if natal is a hit you can expect something similar on PS3 in a couple of years.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery. I think Nintendo is smiling ear to ear seeing Sony ripping their idea.
