It all looks pretty good except for the AA batteries, the competition are all running on recharagable systems which is franly a lot better than relying on batteries. It is intersting that no games come with it as I would have expected Wii sports or at least the Conducting game.

Yeah, I'm hoping they go for a recharge station or something similar... I don't want to rely on batteries..
