Wii Controllers - The Wii Remote and Nunchuk

Much has been said about the Wii’s revolutionary controllers.  So, what’s the crack??

The Wii Remote:

By taking an everyday object like a remote control and adding motion-sensor technology the Wii remote looks awesome!!  And Nintendo look to have achieved its goal in making the remote accessible to people of all ages and all abilities.

The greatest aspect about the Wii Remote is the scope for what it can do:

In a baseball game it becomes a baseball bat.

For a shooting game it is used as the weapon.

For driving game it is the steering-wheel.

The list of uses could and will go on….

Bluetooth Capabilities:

The wireless Wii Remote controller sends your actions to the Wii console from as far as 30 feet away. When used as a pointing device, the controller can send a signal from as far as 15 feet away.  And best of all up to four Wii Remote Controllers can be connected at once.  Get in!!!!!

Other abilities:

The Wii Remote as includes a speaker, rumble feature and the ability for added attachments.  This includes the Nunchuk controller.

The Nunchuk:

This controller is moulded to fit into a gamer’s hand and attaches directly into the the Wii Remote’s expansion port.

The Nunchuk incorporates an analog stick for character movement and also uses the same motion-sensing technology as the Wii Remote.  This will allow the player to control the character with the Nunchuk whilst utilising the Wii Remote as a weapon!!
