Wii Controller Secrets PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alex Terris   
Monday, 01 May 2006

Ever since the announcement of the Wii's controller at the Tokyo game show in 2005, Nintendo have stated that there is still more secrets about it waiting to be revealed. The secrets have been very closely guarded, but we've recently seen two more come to light.

The first is that the Numchuck shell for the Wii controller contains accelerometers which will detect the speed and acceleration of movements. This feature of the controller seemed to have been leaked by EA's Senior Vice President, John Scappert, in a recent interview with IGN as it was previously unconfirmed.

While the main controller unit can detect it's angle and orientation even when not moving, the Nunchuck add-on to the controller will only be able to sense movement.

The second feature of the controller revealed is that it will feature "force feedback". Exactly what this means is unclear at the minute, as it could be simply the standard built-in rumble that we've come to expect from console controllers, or it could be a yet to be revealed more advanced system.

Neither of these features are entirely unexpected, and it seems unlikely that they are the main secrets the Nintendo's President Satoru Iwata has been talking about since the controller's announcement.

The remaining secrets of the Wii's controller are bound to be revealed at this year's E3, which is expected to be a big event for Nintendo. Stick with http://www.wii-gamer.com for all the latest news over E3.

Definitely, Wii has become as the most popular and most sought after gaming console nowadays. It is different from the usual gaming equipment that we used to know of. Many factors were given as to the reason for resurgence of this most innovative games machine over a very short period of time. One is the cost which makes it even more affordable to those who are tight on budget. And the other are the games that went along with the product that requires a different method of playing them. It's a fun gaming machine and is the reason why it is very attractive to gamers and non-gamers of all ages.
