    Probably not. The remote itself uses bluetooth though, so hopefully it will only be a matter of time until someone figures out how to use it with a pc.

    It would be nice to use it instead of a mouse...

    Never thought it's so popular...
    Haven't actually heard anything about Nintendo other than it makes those gameboys and consoles.

    echo Perspective. Speaking of which, I think it's high time for a little Metroid...
    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.

    I actually have two NESs... whether they're both functioning, I'm not sure... they've both been sitting in a closet for quite some time now. I don't know what country you're from, but if your country has a US equivalent to a Funcoland, you should be checking there... they always have NESs near me as people trade them in all the time.

    There are places that sell NES'es here in the UK. But unfortunately the ppl who hand them in have mostly treated them like a battered housewife..... (ungrateful scums). What I need is a NES without the sticky crap that accumulates on the ones I've seen so far. (Please I don't have the desire to know what the sticky stuff is, so keep it to yaself ... Thank you ).

    The Wii actually looks promising, I hope it doesn't follow the Nintendo DS though: Looked promising but played crappy.

    And about games being shipped with consoles, all of the Nintendo consoles had games that came with them, but since the SNES they charged extra in comparison to buying a lone console. Hopefully they don't charge more for the Wii Sports with the Wii.

    What's wrong with the way the DS plays? I've got a DS Lite and I've got no complaints with it whatsoever.

    I don't know, I'm not personally one to like touch screens. I mean that's just a personal vendetta, nothing against the company.

    Nintendo are challenging the way we play games not just repackaging the crap we've had forever like the other companies. I'm definately for what they're doing. Why stick with just the D pad when a touch sensitive screen can allow for extra degrees of interaction? So it takes a while to get used to. Deal with it . I know it took some coaxing to get me to use the screen to play my Mario 64 but hey I love it.

    Well I'm not complaining, the Wii actually looks amazing. But I didn't like the idea of the touch screen, it was a good try but it didn't take off as well as I've hoped.
