has that feature been confirmed? assuming yes it will be interesting so see how the mainstream reacts to it. personally i couldn't care less, i have multiple tvs .. one for tv and one for games, both can do netflix/movies. also remember, the "streaming" controller won't be for motion games meaning a lot of the "expanded" audience won't care for it.
and as nintendo fans have always told me -- it is all about the games. third party support that is mostly ports of ps360 games isn't very compelling either.
While the screen has not been confirmed, I think with as much out there on it, it should be.
i meant the streaming to controllers part lol, i've pretty much taken the screen part as fact at this point. xD
You're right with multiple TVs... however, that means having to have multiple consoles. But with this idea, one console can benefit multiple people at same time.
eh? unless nintendo abandons disks althougth you'll all still have to be playing the same game (only one disk in the console at a time) and even with digital i doubt nintendo can get enough power at an affordable level to run and stream multiple games at a time to the controllers. unless of course each controller is a full console on it's own meaning controllers will cost >$150 a piece which would be a be fail imo.
Motion games will still be included as I think it will be fully compatable with current Wiimote and many of the highest selling games (like NSMB) don't need motion.. an accelerometer is all that was needed... and that could have been a button really.
what i meant is the wiimote can be used with the new hardware but you'll still need the TV to use them. the streaming to the controllers functionallity you are touting can't be used for wiimote based games.
As for the games, yes it is all about the games. However, having a bigger selection is never bad. Adding in the best of the 3rd parties along with Nintendo's own greatness means a perfect system. It won't be simply, crappy, low-end ports. It would be more like PS360 now, nearly identical ports with potentially a few extra features to take advantage of the screen.
again, great for wii-only owners who upgrade but for the 100M plus ps360 owners it's not compelling. as a lot of wii owners already have a ps360 in their household the appeal seems limited.
