That's quite an interesting concept. I'd love to see how it plays. I am concerned about accuracy...or how about sneezing when you make a move... Whatever the case, nice addition to the Wii line-up.

How can you do 8-player? I thought the wii only allowed for 4 controllers, like the 360...

No, you can play 8 player with wii, though you would think that could be small on screen :/ 8 player would be good for games like powerstone and dynamite cop, or super smash bros. brawl.

8 people at 720x480... right... You'll be shooting at pixels instead of bubbles.

I am concerned about the accuracy as well. The pros will all tell you that in the game, sometimes 1 pixel too far to the left or right will totally screw you up. A d-pad is the only way to go here, since you can just tap it to achieve the perfect angle.

Yes, but how can you play 8player? The wii has room for only 4 controllers...Are you using 4 wiimotes and 4 nunchuk adaptors, with on person per nunchuk or wiimote?

But aren't they wireless? I didn't know you had to plug them in at all....
Plus you could add 4 Gamecube controllers...
