well I am not going out of my way to get an xbox or wie controler, I already have a stick and I never use it, I prefur keyboard control and mouse control and even then I still like keyboard.

Hey Che,

Problem you might have here man is that, unless I've missed something
which is very possible, your online fightathon would be the only
accessible game using this controller.  That much money for a
controller isn't a big deal, but that much money for a controller to
play one game only plus the cost of the game starts to become one
maybe.  Another thing that's worth pointing out is that a lot of
people find themselves with some kind of internet hookup most places
they visit now, but wouldn't be taking their Wii controller around
with them 24/7, so you'd still be needing to maintain playability from
the keyboard/other controllers.  Don't get me wrong dude I love the
idea, but as a formerly beatemup geek/guru, I'm more drawn to the game
idea than the fact that it's using a Wii controller.  I've only ever
played a few games online (quake, mk3 over a lan, sound rts etc) and
already for me it's the best part of gaming.  Can't wait to see more
access titles developing where it's possible.

 Hi all,
I am ramping up plans for an online head to head fighting game. At first it
will mostly be a test bed for latency issues, so I can see what the
limitations are for head to head combat over the internet.
One idea I am picking at is the inclusion of The nintendo Wii controllers
for the game.
It is possible to use the Wii controllers via a blue tooth hookup with a
PC.
Having used these controlers on my Wii, I can tell you they are amazing. In the boxing game, the faster you punch with the controller, the harder your character punches. In Mortal Combat, you draw a pattern in the air with
your controller to execute certain moves.
All of this functionality is available with the PC port of the controller
software.
  My question is, how much would the average blind gamer be into this?
I think the draw to a head to head fighting game would be good, assuming lag issues could be worked out, but would the average gamer be willing to
drop the $50 or so necessary to buy a controller and blue-tooth hook up?
The possibilities for useing the Wii controllers is immense for accessible
gaming, most especially for action titles.
  The balance board can be used as well, another $80 or so. Think of the
ability to dodge your opponent simply by leaning, or run away from a monster
by, well, running.
  Anyhow, it is an exciting concept, what do you guys think?
 Later,
che
