House of the Dead 3 with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk

Sent in by reader, Tiger: I thought it would be fun to play House of the Dead 3 with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk (shotgun style), so I modified VKapadia‘s WiiMouse IR script to support Nunchuk reloading and firing, some new LED and Rumble functions, and other game-specific features. It also works “handgun style”, with the Nunchuk disconnected, making for […]

I translated this from a German site: Wii owners with Internet connections will be able themselves to download demo versions of Wii games. The assumption gave it already longer, now is official: Apart from Virtual CONSOLE games, Wii fans with Internet connections will be able to download demo versions […]

Wii in 30% of US households by 2011 – Analysts Predict

This is somewhat old news by now, but if you haven’t heard; industry research firm NPD Funworld made a bold prediction that by 2011, the Wii would have an installed base of 30% in the US, as well as Japan. The article found over at Gamespot, failed to put that in perspective. I’m going to do just that. And as […]

Looking back, is it worth it?

Looking back, is it worth it?

Back in September of last year (2006), Nintendo held a much awaited press conference that would unveil the last coveted details of their highly anticipated next(new)-gen console, the Nintendo Wii. Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime, took the stage in New York and fulfilled every fanboy’s dreams by finally setting a price and release date. November 19th, 2006 at a price point of $249.xx, the Wii would see its worldwide debut, in North America. Included in the box: 1 Wii Console, 1 Wii Remote Controller, 1 Nunchuk Controller, all cables and usuals (manuals, etc.), and Wii Sports packed-in. As expected, the internet gaming community (watching live feeds via several sources) exploded with praise and criticism in nearly equal amounts. What were the main gripes? Do we even remember at this point? As far as I can remember, the complaints that most came up with were:

• The price
• The inclusion of Wii Sports
• The release date
• The exclusion of a second Remote/Nunchuk combo
• A few other small details

I, admittedly, feverishly argued each of these points in Nintendo’s favor that day, regardless of the fact that, obviously, I would’ve loved it to be released sooner, as well as cheaper. Despite which side you were on then, we all have an infinitely better grasp on what the Wii is now, and how far our $249.xx went. What do each of those objections look like in the post-launch light, and did Nintendo silence those asking, “Is it worth it?�
