WOW!! I never expected that. It looks really cool. Can't wait to try it out.

It's certainly unique and very Nintendo but it also screams gimmick. Its going to be intriguing to see what kind of games they come up with to utilise the pointer fully.

Nunchunk controller huh. Yeah, a little gimmicky but it could be really cool in a FPS type game.

I'm aghast and curious at the same time. Those bottom buttons suggest you'll have to get another hand on the controller sometimes, but the shape isn't very condusive to that.

I don't think you will, with the two hand pieces it seems a very free and expressive system, the third picture on this link http://www.gamesradar.com/news/default.asp?pagetypeid=2&articleid=37341&subsectionid=2504 gives a better indication of how it will work out. Tbh just looking at the gamespot link above deceived me into thinking it was just a remote control until I watched the video at Gamespot.com.

I really don't like the look of it.....
Sure they've gone for something new, but there's nothing wrong with traditional controllers.

Having slept on it and sobered up a little I'm now thinking that thing could be great for sword-fighting games and tennis and stuff.

Another great picture here (http://www.1up.com/do/imageDisplay?id=2308860)
Allows you to see it from all views.

Only shows half of it though, it's how the N64 style mushroom controller will work I'm interested in - it's a bit strange using one hand utterly seperate from the other to move a character.

One interesting feature someone pointed out was that if you turn it horizontally it resembles the classic Nintendo controller, and what with this new system being backwards compatable and all,i think thats genius.
