No games shown required it for play and being a part of multiplayer would only be a reason to include it if there were two controllers bundled with previous consoles. I hope it comes with a Wiimote too, but I have my doubts. Just look at this bit of IGN interview. IGN: a lot of these games, and Nintendo Land too, require you to have several Wii Remotes. And even a game like Pikmin, primarily the control is with the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk. Are you looking at bundling multiple controllers with the system at launch? Because it seems like a lot of these games, to be fully understood, need several controllers. Fils-Aime: So, again, we're not going to talk about our configuration. But what I would tell you is, we're cognizant... US 40 million units, globally 100 million units. Against all those units there's a lot of Remotes and Nunchuks, a few Balance Boards. And so we want to leverage that installed base and not have the consumer to pay for another accessory when they already may be fully satiated with what they have in the household. We're going to be very thoughtful. That's the beauty of what we have, all of that is backward compatible. The consumer is going to feel great about that aspect of our value. Reggie's right, I already have 4 Wiimotes. But I worry about who will bother including motion based control options in their games if Wiimotes don't come with the new systems. ...in my pants.
