In addition to the hands-on preview, the author of the TIME Wii article
had this to say regarding conventional input devices: "When you play with an old-style controller, you look like a loser."
That's a pretty bold statement regarding a tradition that we have all come to know and appreciate (the current "old-style" controller). As most, I'm very excited to experience Wii's input device. But I still wouldn't depredate what got us here.
Maybe I'm just a loser, or at least I look like one.
