Others could say it will look great for them because its black and glowing differently in the dark and that would look nice... i guess thats just a thing of likes/dislikes and shouldnt be mentioned because its a controler and if it works great it shouldnt be that important how it looks.
How quick some people jumpt to conclusions that are so obvisously wrong. How could you say its build to make the way for wii-like games when you just seen 2 i say it again TWO games that just gut an little upgrade..and that in such short time.They wanted as mentioned before something to show off naturally..what do you think that they will do a full brand new game in such short times using every aspect that such a controller gives us ?
Come on be a little more down to earth... they proven now it works and they proven that they even can IMPLEMENT that in games you allready got at home soooo why brag instead of saying oh hey i could improve my games that i allready own..what a NICE GESTURE instead of allready dooming such things without knowledge of what other games and utils are in the works that got build just for that controller instead of enhancing the gamingexperience in allready stored products !
So first of all... the WII mote could be decribed a rip of of the ps2 eyetoy if you state it like that..cause one technology builds on the other in way of thinking and improving.
But ... WII and The Wand are different technologies just giving the same effect for the user.WII is infrared and sensors so in my eyes not a real motiontracking system because it just calculates from the signals it gets... PS3`s the Wand uses a cam so its really tracking motion because it "see`s" (at least thats how i perceive it) So please all stop bout that always anyoing..they stole it from them and they stole it from us... guys its technology....one company has to be the first other follow with abstractions and/or better products because of watching the first one closely ! (and thats good for YOU the customer but that is something most of you dont seem to grasp).
Who said that in the final version you need the ps3 controler and the wand ? As mentioned it was to show off that it works..and that it can be implemented in existing games.Do you really think they would do a brand new wand only resident evil or little big planet in few weeks ??
That is just a demonstration that it works not more.And its a nice upgrade if you own the games allready.. Natal isnt that innovative as some guys mentioned.In your words its a rip off of eyetoy nothing more. So you brag about holding a normal ps3 controler and the wand...but you announce that you can hold a controler even when using natal that is made only for bodymovements if im right ?Isnt that a joke right now ?
If i use your way of thoughts then wouldnt it look damn stoopid holding a controler while using natal...waving hands jumping around..kicking or whatever and at the same time flip your controler and use the buttons and so on ?... see if i want to i could make it sound like natal is a horrible idea... but without even testing it with actual games i cant... same goes for the wand and the almost funny ways of describing its demise without any good facts and just with personal likes/dislikes.
And again.. why do you nag and brag about the looks when it comes to terms like how is the technical side, is it wortking correctly and smooth.. if its handy and you could use it without rampaging your hands after 1 hour of play then its great.
