    Oh my God, they HAVE lost it. That is the worst concept for a controller ever. It looks like a TV remote control, an ergonomic nightmare for gamers used to using two hands.

    Stick a fork in Nintendo, they are done.

    Put a crank wheel on the side and it's good for a couple Foxworthy fans who want their fishing simulators to work better... that's it.

    Look for them to do a 180 within 6 months of launch and go back to a normal two handed controller. Either that or watch third party manufacturers do it for them.

    Wait, they had an ace up their sleeve. The wand/light saber hilt doohookey docks with a standard gamepad (Granted, one that looks as big as my beloved "Duke" original XBox controller...)

    Isn't that pretty much the overall shape/style of the GC controller?

    And I for one prefer the original XBox controller over the smaller S-controller or PS2 controller. I got big, fat hands and fingers and enjoy the space. I only wish MS would have ditched the black and white buttons in favor of an extra pair or trigger buttons, but then it was probably too much like the PS2's controller.

    The only problem is that most Nintendo users have small hands (as most of their games are geared towards the 10 and under crowd).

    It isn't as bad as it could be, (the wand could be useful in those Lucasarts light saber battles), but it still looks like a complicated misfire to me.....

    My son has the GameCube and the controller is too small for my taste and feels like a cheap plastic toy. I have 4 Duke controllers for my XBox (I replace them when they break with used ones from EB Games), and I WILL miss them when they go away (although the extra trigger buttons replacing the white and black buttons will be welcome.... have to teach myself to play Halo(2) with a new layout though).
