Reggie Hints That "New Sensor" Is Coming to E3 on GTTV Episode

Appearing on the latest episode of GTTV, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime was tight-lipped about what Nintendo has planned for E3. But at the end of the show, he did let one thing slip: Beyond the Vitality Sensor, there may be a new type of sensor Nintendo plans to debut at E3.

In the show, host Geoff Keighley asks Reggie, "Will we see you hooked up to a vitality sensor at E3?" Reggie replies that might happen or "who knows, maybe some other kind of sensor." (Wii)

No Reggie don't do it sony is going to copy it and claim they invent it.
mrv321  +   2158d ago
Don't do a Microsoft and have an Eyetoy with lag which cost more than a gold bar and most likely fail with some red light of doom.
GrandDragon  +   2158d ago
@Sonyslave 3 (are you saying you're Sony's slave? you're owning yourself?)
I was just wondering but when exactly did Sony say they invented motion controllers? or are you just pulling things out of your ass to piss people off and to demonstrate how mentally impaired you are?

If you don't answer me within 30 minuets then you owned your self.

Or he actually has a life and doesnt depend on on his lack of a life to win arguments.. How pathetic that the only thing you could come up with to prove yourseld right was him not sitting on N4g all day like you do...

Sony sheep and the umb things they say. Always a riot. Best part is you're probably totally clueless to whats so funny. Answer in 30 seconds or you're completely retarded. See how that works. You didnt make it in time

This is why I really don't like the Wii.

Oh it's the cheapest console. No it's not. You have to buy the console and then like 2-3 other controllers which costs over 100$ and now newer games are starting to use Motion Plus so you need that too. And now they are telling us we need a new sensor bar too? Come on. It costs more then the PS3 at launch to buy everything you need to multiple players(like playing Super Smash Bros with 4 people).

I would much rather just get a new console from Nintendo then have to keep buying these add ons that SHOULD have been in the console/controller from the start.

Maybe x-ray vision, or some visor add-on like in Metroid Prime.

How about sonar vision! Or some lame morph ball costume suit so we can roll around while it tracks us :P
Seferoth75  +   2157d ago
Reibooi, that is just a stupid comment. Does the PS3 come with 4 controllers? NO of course not you have to buy them.

Let's look at it this way kid.
Add up the cost of 3 sixaxis controllers, then add in the cost of 4 DS controllers cause you are paying another 70 for rumble.
Then add in the price of Eyetoy and the move controllers and see just how cheap that is.
Nowhere near the cost of the Wii and everything needed to play it. . Oh BTW Wii controllers do not cost over 100.00 each. If you want to act like you need every piece for the Wii then you must also need every piece for the PS3 as well.
180.00 for the 3 sixaxis controllers.
240.00 for the DS replacements for 10.00 rumble
100.00 for move and 1 controller. No nunchuk included
80.00 for 4 nunchuk rip offs
90.00 for the other 3 move controllers.
299.99 for the price of the console.

Hell leaving out the price of the console thats over 700.00 just in controllers.

How the hell does that equal
120.00 for 3 wii remotes
60.00 for 3 nunchuks and
20.00 for motion plus if you buy resort, tiger woods, and red steel
Hell 0.00 if you buy one of the other bundled games.

Pay more attention in math class and save that BS for the open zone and the fanboys.
Reibooi  +   2156d ago

It seems you don't know how to read and have no common sense.

I didn't say each Wii controller was over 100 bucks I said it would cost well over a 100 bucks for 3 more + motion plus + nunchuck etc etc.

Yes you are right the PS3 does have very expensive controllers but it also has online play THAT WORKS!!!!! The Wii does have online play but the friend codes thing is retarded and most of teh games are so insanely laggy there is no point.(can't count the amount of games of SSBB that were ruined because of horrible lag of just plain not getting people into a match)

PS3 you don't need to buy 4 controllers to have fun with friends just hope online and play a game of Uncharted or Killzone adn you are good to go and you don't need 4 controllers for that.

Nintendo games have been games that you huddle around the TV with your friends to play and as such it's fun to play stuff like Smash Bros or Mario Kart that way but it's incredibly expensive to do such on Wii because of all the extra crap you need to buy.

Also where the hell does the PSeye and Move come into this? You don't need those things to play any games. Do you need the PSeye and Move to play little big planet? No you don't it's a option. However you NEED Wii motes and nunchucks to play most games unless they support classic controllers in which case that's EVEN MORE you need to buy. Let me state something I think Natal and move are retarded. The core audience for those consoles don't need nor do they want something so stupid and gimmicky I won't be buying either of them and it really had no place in this argument in the first place.

...due mainly to Geoff and Reggie's back and forth. The whole bit about "Zelda being there" (Are you going to have a guy like dressed in a costume walking around the show floor?) made me laugh.
Godmars290  +   2158d ago
Ok, the Wii's dead.
Nintendo can't possibly think that the casual market they've managed to capture is going to keep up with this.
iforgotmylogin  +   2158d ago

umaza  +   2158d ago
It slipped out!
He said that so you can't say what Nintendo has planned for E3, it is obvious the vitality sensor is going to be there, but this is what he is talking about, if he said even one thing people will start hyping up about it or start assuming what Nintendo is going to do at E3.
Rampaged Death  +   2158d ago
Geoff Keighleys face when Reggie said there could be more sensors was priceless.
Pennywise  +   2158d ago
More money to spend on accessories that will make the movement tracking where it should of been to begin with. Nintendo might have a lot of sales, but they failed hard with the Wii. Last gen graphics, bad motion tracking... Nice stepping stone, but this King of the Casual company really need to take a look at themselves.

So you have to buy a Wii... then Motion+, then you have to buy a new sensor too to make it 1:1 movement? The wii and its accessories are crazy.
ChickeyCantor  +   2158d ago
Either way, you wont be getting anywhere without the camera thats required for "Move".

Crazy? Nah.
Pennywise  +   2158d ago
Crazy that a lot of people already own the camera... nah.

Everyone I personally know with a PS3 has the camera.

Ah who cares... Wii is the best console ever. Happy?

"Crazy that a lot of people already own the camera... nah."
They do? like Sony's given them a reason for buying one?

I always thought that Sony messed up promoting the camera. Really failed to develop it given that they came up with a hands-free menu control idea during the PS2 yet didn't follow it through. Didn't embrace augmented reality except with the one card game when they should have been side-by-side with the PC promotions.

You do realize there are 2 different camera's right?
The one on the PS2 would not suffice.

And funny you bring fanboyism into this.
sorceror171  +   2157d ago
Pennywise, the Wii certainly 'failed' hardcore gamers. Even moderate gamers like me don't find it appealing.

But apparently there are a *lot* of people for whom the Wii is *very* attractive. And they've expressed that appreciation in the way companies notice: $$$. Nintendo went for a different ecological niche and won big with it.

Now, the ecology is changing some. Three years later, there are quite a few more HDTVs out there, and the competition is developing a response. But the 'first mover advantage' is not *all* bunk. The casual market is Nintendo's to lose.

I don't think new accessories alone will help enough, either, but Nintendo's surprised people before.

(And I write this as a PS3 owner with a PS Eye...)
Godmars290  +   2157d ago
Naw, its the other way around. Games like MadWorld prove that hardcore gamers aren't buying hardcore Wii titles. Just like what few of them do use the Wiimote.
Pennywise  +   2157d ago
I'm sorry.... I should of elaborated. The we failed the core gamers. The wii failed ME. I don't hate nintendo... how could I? They are a HUGE part of my gaming history.

No game comes close to the weeks I timed out from life to beat Zelda Ocarina of Time... but come on... the Wii just didn't do it for me. I have a nice 50" TV and to play a dumb down graphics game is not appealing to me.

If NIN would of made the Wii HD, I would of been on the same train as you guys.
Godmars290  +   2157d ago
But its not actually Nintendo failing gamers with the Wii, its 3rd parties.

Maybe you could blame them, and gamers, for making/wanting hardcore, or games based on the last two console generations, games on the system when Nintendo has never been about that. Was in fact the reason Nintendo fell out of favor with the "Hardcore" because of their refusal to grow and mature with market they helped to create.
Pennywise  +   2157d ago
Gods, it all trickles down to Nintendo.

First off the lack of HD really sucks. As a former PC gamer it was always about getting parts to get better(higher) resolution and steady FPS. Nintendo didn't even bother to up the consoles power from last gen.

And yes, 3rd party is really killing the Wii... but is it their fault or Nintendo's fault for a lax system for quality assurance?

Plus with the way Nin decided to stay with last gen graphics, it really threw the core gamers off(I say core cause there are still plenty of HARDcore Nin fans) so the good 3rd party games focused on the core gamers have failed in sales. So why would a dev that has an idea for a game make it for the Wii if he knows it won't sell. I admit, them making a great game into a rail shooter for the wii is not the best idea to sway customers, but the system obviously has some major limitations.
ChickeyCantor  +   2157d ago
"Games like MadWorld prove that hardcore gamers aren't buying hardcore Wii titles"

C'mon that game was mediocre at best.
N4g_null  +   2157d ago
Mariokart wii and smash brother prove you wrong. I would love to see grand ma playing mario kart wii I would smoke her LOL. Wii fit was actually bought by more gamers than girls in the beginning all claiming to loose weight LOL.

On top of this is this really casuals buying mario 5? Really so thats who bought mario 3 back in the days huh?

Maybe you need to take a look at your self. You are in the wrong market. Even you admitted to being a PC gamer. When HD came you came from the dieing PC market expecting nintendo to cater to you LOL. You are a nun at a strip club right now so out of place you can not even support the market you love.

I hope after HD gaming goes all casual you go back to PC gaming so PC developers can push graphic to where they need to be right now. You are not even a console gamer so why the hell should nintendo cater to you?

I can understand yeah you dont like nintendo and I know why so move on they are not changing and the majority has voted with their cash.

What you don't realize is It was hardcore developers and gamers that dropped the ball this gen. If you would have actually supported the good games and wouldn't have ignored what was good about the wii then we would have their next gen system out now. Yet you all ignored the wii and the good 3rd party efforts and now your HD consoles are running out of hype vehicles. The HD market is 40-50 million max we know cuz you all got GCs even though it was made for kids LOL remember?

Im glad nintendo mostly ignored the white noisy echo chambers. There is a cat driving the car at SONY just like the one in that SNL skit.
dtrain21  +   2158d ago
I hope Nintendo patents it or else Sony will claim they innovated the device first

last story
red steel 2
metroid other M

maybe a zelda this year?
retro has a game coming this year?
maybe a few more surprises?

that's a pretty nice lineup in a year considering nintendo's past 3 years. Whether you like motion controls or not. If your hating the wii at this point your just hating cuz you think it's the cool thing to do.

Personally I'm in the same boat as Eagle21 I might be a little bit more excited for ninty's E3 showing this year

and I know it's a smaller franchise (that has all the potential to be mainstream) but Pikmin 3 might make it out this year too. I am pumped for it as well as everything you listed.
Eamon  +   2158d ago
mcgrawgamer, I have to disagree.

Nintendo, in terms of title lineup, have literally gone nowhere. There are no AAA class games with either jawdropping visuals or innovative gameplay. They are focusing on the casual market and have this was a very smart business decision to make. Casual games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit have been selling like hotcakes. But NO 3rd party game on the Wii has had a success anywhere near it. Unfortunately, this fact is hurting the games industry a bit.

I'll be honest, the only title that I would consider absolutely amazing and groundbreaking was The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

I bought a Wii on launch day, and the only games I have properly played on the Wii are Twilight Princess, Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Bros.

That is why, the only thing I want from the Wii is a new Zelda game. And the new Metroid game looks quite interesting to me.
This is my personal opinion though.
iforgotmylogin  +   2158d ago

ChickeyCantor  +   2157d ago
" here are no AAA class games with either jawdropping visuals or innovative gameplay. They are focusing on the casual market and have this was a very smart business decision to make."

Yeah cause HR is Hardcore.
Eamon  +   2157d ago
By HR you mean Heavy Rain?

I wasn't really interested in that game much. It set its own unique genre but I wouldn't define it has innovative.
ChickeyCantor  +   2157d ago
Then again you base innovation on Jawdropping visuals.
To be fair, something innovative is not an opinion.

And innovative gameplay?
Dont tell me you think lots of the Ps3/360 have overall innovative gameplay?
Its the smaller parts that count as well.
#14.7 (Edited 2157d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
Eamon  +   2157d ago
Just to let you know, examples of what I personally "define" as innovative gameplay are: Half-Life 2, Portal, Braid, Ico, Ocarina of Time, POP: Sands of Time.

And the list continues.

But that was all just for the record. You cannot deny that the Wii is not a good platform to work on for 3rd party developers with "huge & imaginative ideas" in mind.
N4g_null  +   2157d ago
Eamon so go to Zbrush dot com and tell me we will see 80% of that on current HD consoles? So even the HD console are not good enough but PC gaming is another story. Also Why do you guys still have a fix on HD visuals? You must not be tired of realism yet. I am... I'm tired of doing wrinkles in zbrush and painting pores. The HD guys seem to be the most lacking imagination right now.

Why do I not have the same feeling when I watch true HD artists in movies? Avatar crushes pretty much every thing yet why was it not a video game?

I can't say I would want to reply most of the HD line up. Graphics wise they impress but we want games not graphic bench marks. This is why PC gamers bring up crysis. It looks great right... yet it plays like crap because its boring. All the HD gamers must be computer artist or new comers to CGI. PC gaming died because it became more about tech than games, the same can be said for the arcades.

Who are these clowns posing as hardcore gamers. The most hardcore games almost never brake the million mark, cause only the true hardcore buy them. Did Shadow of collosus sell like crazy? Killer 7? Summoner: a Goddess Reborn? Okami? Eternal Darkness? Thirteen? Lost kingdom? Baten Kaitos? Panzer Dragoon Orta?

See where I'm going? Meanwhile these commercialized, mainstream games are selling like heck and people believe its hardcore. Oh yeah cos a FPS with regenerating health is so much more HARDCORE that Monster Hunter, Sin and Punishment, and Metroid. Right?

Seriously people. Stop using the word hardcore if you don't know the definition. I put in too many hours into Pokemon for someone to call it casual. If its so casual, why can't you just pick it up and beat me????
turok  +   2155d ago
Well now. I better see Zelda. And I better see somethin about the 2nd comin of Madworld that game was fun and hilarious. And by god back on Zelda better be out by christmas so santa claus can finally deliver after 3 barren years. and where the heck is Starfox and F-Zero???
