It appears a company Fusion is making technology that is a whole lot better than the technology Nintendo is using in their upcoming console Wii. Although the concept of Fusion is similar to the Wii-mote the technology inside is very different indeed: rather than using infra-red sensors, which are only accurate when the transmitter points in the direction of the receiver, the Fusion uses cutting-edge ultrasonic technology, combined with a tilt sensor in the handle, to provide accurate 3D tracking no matter where the wand is positioned -IGN http://www.nintendorevolution.ca/10202006/07/nintendo_wii_controller_clone_to_ps3_xbox_360 1. Will the Wii have the same "era" as the Dreamcast? 2. Why couldn't nintendo patent their idea somehow to prevent this from happening? Anyone would rather play a xbox360/ps3 with added bonus of the Wii remote. 3. We watch and see if the Wii will take off like the DS, if it does - there is a good chance the two big player Sony and Microsoft will jump on this technology and steal Nintendo thunder leaving them behind again. 4. I'm sure nintendo knows that this was/is going to happen, they MUST have something else very unique up their sleeve to set them over the top, no?
