Iwata Doesn't Fear Wii-mote Duplication

Is Nintendo quaking in their boots at the thought of competitors utilizing motion controls for their consoles? President Satoru Iwata confirms that they're decidedly not.

It's been heavily rumored that both Microsoft and Sony are looking to create their own Wii Remotes for their systems. It's an obvious move.

And everybody else's too, please! That way you can force Nintendo to do something OTHER than "advancing" the controller! Like gee, I don't know, make a decent online service, stop releasing old IP, mini-games and non-game crap, and pack a much higher power punch, or at least not charge 100 bucks more than a Gamecube 1.2 is worth! :(

Edit:

Weel, it does suck that a last-gen machine which is unique (but not necessarily good) in that it has waggle, is outselling multi-media machines, especially at twice its face value.

it is really hurting you isnt it ?
XD

edit:
" last-gen machine "..Current gen =)
" in that it has waggle" ....maybe its time you put down R:Ravin rabbids? and start playing a different game on the Wii?

" is outselling multi-media machines, especially at twice its face value. "

its called choice, also most people forget that lots of PEOPLE already gave their money to Media machines.

haha are they saying sony and microsoft stole these ideas i have had a microsoft controler that has motion sensitivity for years and years i use to play destruction derby with it for f sake and the ps3 sinaxsis was announced before wii was. and sure those prototypes look similar but isnt the standard controlers for all of the playstation`s, xboxes and nintendo`s basically the same idea? arnt they ooo the triangle is an A big difference nintendo just try to say these things purely to put people of sony and microsoft when clearly nintendo is out of date

...so was the Wii controller.
Sony announced the Bana/boomerang before The Wii.

Also, Atari also had a motion controller BEFORE MS.

What are you crying about anyway ? half your post doesnt make F sense!
" xboxes and nintendo`s basically the same idea? arnt they ooo the triangle is an A big difference nintendo just try to say these things purely to put people of sony and microsoft when clearly nintendo is out of date"

WTF are you saying here.......for a new comer on N4g you have lot to learn DAMN!

it out sells ps3 and xbox because the wii is fun but you need to buy about 10 games be able to play the wii with freinds for a month for example warhawk is a great game to play with freinds and can be played for months so is halo3 but a game like mario and sonic olympic games is good for about 2hours. and whats the wii board its basically scales connected to a cartoon imagery machine
