According to a LinkedIn resume posted on a certain banned Nintendo fansite, Wii U is getting a version of an unannounced multiplatform downloadable title from Sega.

It could be. If this is the case, then it should be a problem. That is why i mentioned "work 100%" earlier, if a lot of games required a Wii controller and it wasnt included, then it would be missing something in the box, so to speak.

There won't be anything missing. The only game that's even been hinted at being solely a wii remote game is the next Zelda just like the one that came out a few months ago and required you to buy wii motion +

If this is the case, i agree. But i ment if it isnt the case :) I'm curious regardless if Nintendo will include a Wii controller or not. I think no due to keeping costs down, but only time will tell.

I humbly suggest: Wii U Speculation Thread V: Moving at the speed of hysteria

I think the definition of hysteria fits the bill:

1. Behavior exhibiting excessive or uncontrollable emotion, such as fear or panic.
2. A mental disorder characterized by emotional excitability and sometimes by amnesia or a physical deficit, such as paralysis, or a sensory deficit, without an organic cause.

My thoughts exactly. It's more of an optional method of controls similar to how the GC controller was also an optional method. It's really up to the developer to choose whether they want Wiimote functionality.

We don't know what the Wii U's "Wii Sports" is gonna be yet, except that it's not going to be Wii U Sports. This is to say, Nintendo have recently stated that they are not going to be selling the Wii U based primarily on those sports experiences at E3 last year. I'm sure there's going to be a Wii U Sports at some point or another (maybe even right at launch), but they've got something completely different brewing in order to showcase the new types of gaming made possible by the DRC.

Whatever this may end up being, I doubt it will use both a Wii Remote and DRC for a single player (as the Wii U golf demo did). It will be a complete experience using only the DRC.

It's also a unique situation where the Wiimote is required for local multiplayer. I agree that the DRC is the focal point, but they can't ignore the Wii Remote if the Wii U controller is limited to 1 per console. No other game console has require two different types of controller to play multiplayer.

That's the sense I get. I mean, they're keeping the "Wii" name, which is quite synonymous with that remote. And they used it pretty prominently in the initial promo video..

It's not going to be like that at all because, unlike the GC controller, the Wii Mote is going to be pretty important for basic local multiplayer from what we know.

This isn't a simple backwards compatibility thing.

My point is that it's optional just like GC controller was. Developers simply don't have to choose it as the main method of controls. That will be the Wii U Pad.

yeah that's why I said it'll be there for devs who choose to make it an option for games or for local multiplayer where it seems like it'll be needed. Definitely won't be pushed in games as the main thing though, not for 99% of games I imagine.

Analogs are better now, but keep the black bezel. It's a distinctive part of the look. :P

And the slit speakers make it look kind of cheap, like the DSi. But otherwise very nice, love the white.

Eh, I don't like that black pannel too much because I hate the glossy, and it wouldn't look right in matte. Perhaps make it a choice like Apple does with their Macbooks?

I think losing IR controls would be a deal breaker for a lot of the Wii userbase. I'd say that nintenod might mandate it as a control method.

I know I won't be getting it unless every FPS uses IR pointing. No way I'm going back to the bad old days.

There doesn't need to be forced mandates or anything.
Nintendo and other developers should just use common sense.

-A huge chunk of the probable/possible Wii U audience is going to be Wii owners. There is no getting around that.
-Most Wii owners have more than 1 Wii mote, by virtue of Wii Sports Tennis.
-There is no need to pack in a Wiimote with the Wii U
-Assuming that a Wii U owner has a Wiimote will not hurt the game, and at the very "worst" will make the owner to finally get one. Just remember to market that aspect.

Mandating stuff* is the way to piss off third parties.

The correct way is to abstract the controls and build functions into the SDK in a way that makes it so easy to implement the different options that the devs barely notice it. Not saying this is particularly easy, mind you.

Also, it floors me that there was one and only one splitscreen competitive multiplayer shooter that supported both control options. I would really, really like to have more games of this nature in the coming years.

I probably will avoid all shooters who don't give me an IR aiming option. Analog aiming can suck a fat one.
