Awesome, but how much will these things cost?

A pretty pathetic trick from Nintendo, I have to say. Judging from the very, very first announcement trailers of the Wii controller, it looks like they had promised 1:1 controls from the beginning.

Doesn’t this remind you of something else? First Nintendo claims that this product is the best comparing to it’s competitors, yet it needs peripherals to keep up with them. Kinda like the Sega Genesis.
