View Full Version : Wavebird Controller

All I know about the controller is that it works at least 30 feet and through a wall. Also I know I really want one. So here are my questions:

1) Can more than one controller work at the same time? Cause it's supposed to work on a frequency right? So wouldn't the frequencys get all mixed up? Someone came up with maybe there's a switch on the reciever that you can choose so they're different.

2) Will there be a docking port to charge it? Buying batteries all the time would suck and be expensive.

Either way i'm getting one! How about you peoples?

1. yes, multiple controllers work, it has a frequency BANDWIDTH, you set one controller for one setting, and another controller for a second

it appears you can have all four ports using four wavebirds

(cheating alert! it MAY be possible for a jerk to set his frequency to YOUR controller port! he won't be able to controller his character but could mess up yours, too!)

2. doubtful, looks battery driven, for such a problem, might I suggest RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES? and a batter recharger? it's really a very cost effective thing especially if you have remote controls, battery powered music devices, clocks, and flashlights...(not the greatest for flashlights, unless you are good at maintaining them...)

It's nice to see a first party wireless controller. It's about time the console manufacturers started giving us a bit more choice.

yeah! nintendo giving you choices in good ways! system color, wired or unwired controllers! excellent

unlike Ms who says you have a choice, use our console to play games or pay us for the play button we left out and also play DVD!

Yep, I am getting it. However, there are no vibration to go along with it like a regular controller. ;)

I am anxiously awaiting June 24th, so I can go pick up Eternal Darkness and the Wave Bird. :D
