View Full Version : Wii Remote Killer for X360 and PS2/3

Just saw this article and thought it was worth mentioning.
Looks like other systems might have a 3D Controller, well one that looks to be superiour to Wii's that is.

For my the Wii remote isn't it's big sell point. It maybe fun, but it doesn't make ot break the system.
On top of that "The Wii killer" will only have three games by Christmas 2007. By then the Wii itself will already be dropped in price and have many titles.
Better late then never I guess

This won't recieve anywhere near the 3rd party support that the Wii will, but it is interesting nonetheless.

while its a cool idea, and competition is ALWAYS good, this is FAR from a wii killer.
To "kill" something in the buisness world, you need more than just a good product. You need back-up. You need company's to make software that uses your new product. you need advertisements, publicity, and all in all...get the general consumer's attention.
Sadly, this is the first i have ever heard of it. and it seems the first that the above posters heard of this as well.
If us, gaming/computer geeks JUST NOW heard of this, then regular 13 year old billy down the street will NEVER know this exists.
Though they may not kill the way ( and they won't ), They may push some technological barriers, making the technology more responsive, faster, and over-all, much better. Which is ALWAYS a good thing, no matter WHO's making it, or Why.

I thought it was an intresting read it was the first that I've heard of it as well. Then again I do remember seeing some time ago these controllers that looked like they would perfectly fit with the Wii's system I guess not.
I know hopefully I'll be getting a Wii.

i'd like to see some motion sensing goodies for the 360, but it would have to work well; TALK is cheap with motion sensing stuff; you really can't know until you get it in your hands and try it out; all the talk in the world can't change that; superfically the technology they're using sounds interesting, while the designs of the controllers look rather silly to me

There are motion sensing games on the PS2 and Xbox. Have been for a long time, like the golf game mentioned.
It does bring up the interesting point that a motion sensor can always be added later if Sony or MS wished to make an official Wiimote copycat.
The thing they can't add is the thing thats kept nintedo afloat the last two console generations: Mario and Zelda.
