Get excited people, Nintendo not one to be short on thrills has used the Games Convention now on in Leipzig to announce for now one new game and it's a doozy!
WTF is the point with Chess on console? Play it in real life if you so badly need Chess.
Good move I think, we need some games of this ilk on consoles. With Chess, It'd love to have a number of online chess games on the go at the same time (non realtime). Yes, A bit geeky and fairly said, even I'll admit that. :-}
If it was on a console you could play friends over the internet. I think Sony are providing a free chess game in Home aswell so I can't complain when its free, wouldn't pay for a chess game though unless it was super cheap like £1.
Why do you need good stories in your games, why don't you read a book. Why do you need violence in every single game, go to war.
i wanna hear real games coming out for the system, not crap like wario ware, chess, wii-play, wii-fit, mario party. these are all mini games, nothing for the hardcore and dont bring that crap that its why nintendo brings more money, u guys shud be craving more zelda and good games too, stop caring if nintendo makes money and not good games. goodness they changed so much from their glory on the Nes and SNES
I don't see any harm in minigames because it's not like people are forced to buy them or the Wii. However, Chess is not a minigame. It is probably the most tactical, hardest to master strategy game ever made. Here's one site that offers 700 pages of chess tactics: http://www.chesstactics.org...
"goodness they changed so much from their glory on the Nes and SNES " I don't rememeber the name, but there was a chess-like game for the NES, but you had to fight when one piece tried to take another, so the piece you're trying to take could end up taking you, so it wasn't real chess, but it was along the same lines, and there may have been a real chess game, but I never had it. Chessmaster for the SNES was one of my favorite games. Now chess for the Wii...that's so terribly different from chess on the NES and SNES.

Most people who play the new systems nowadays are too graphic oriented to be able to play chess unless there are multiple chess sets, actual battles between the pieces with blood splatters, and high polygon counts.
Are we forgetting again "The Holy Trinity"? SSBB, SMG and MP3 are on their way.
to rute: well no nothins wrong with minigames, but thats all they announce are minigames and games that are 50$ that u will play for 2 hours. and to KeiZka, mari, smash bros and metroid wont hold ou for eternity. its the same old line up that was for GC, mario sunshine, metroid 1 and 2. smash bros and zelda. o and tales of symphonia. and im speaking exclusives, not timed exclusive like RE4. just sayin, instead of makin so many mini games why not focus on a new franchise??? sorry but personally im sick of samus, link and especially mario. just my opinion tho
"has used the Games Convention now on in Leipzig to announce for now one new game and it’s a doozy! Wii Chess which has yet to be announced" Ummm... has used to announce, then "which has yet to be announced" Which is it? If it's been announced, then it's just a grammar error. If it still hasn't been announced then this is a troll post just trying to make it look like Nintendo's going to hype this like they did wiifit.
Ohh, if only this was a new interpretation of my childhood favourite “Archon”. That would have been sweet. Nintendo could have done that like no one else… But probably not… If they say chess I guess it is just chess…
Given Nintendo's trackrecord, Wii Chess is likely to be as close to real chess as Mario Kart is to real racing or Mario Strikers is to real soccer. In other words, I'm pretty confident that it'll be more than simply just another rendition of the boardgame born in the 15th century.
yeah i wouldnt be suprised if bombs would fall out of the sky or you have to battle like fire emblem....or like the tales of series XD. you never know..its nintendo afteral.
Wii sh1t, and Wii Crap. I bet those would be better than "Wii anything".
