    Yes!

    I got mine on Friday and I've been GAGGING to quack on about it. I'd figured everyone here had gotten bored of them already so I'd missed my chance.

    As to your question, well my experience is thusfar limited to Wii Sports.

    I'd say for the tennis and baseball: yes, it's uncannily accurate.

    For boxing and bowling, well, maybe it's just cause I'm kind of crap at them, but the connection between my proprioception and the on-screen action seems a little random to me.

    I fcking LOVE IT though. And you and Sonny-Jim will too. Promise.

    Make sure you get the Wii Sports with it and watch him kick your ass in the boxing

    It's one of those consoles where the gameplay isn't fantastic but the games are the fun ones you can pick up, play for a few hours and just put back down again.

    Everyone can join in so lots of family fun to be had

    And though she be but little, she is fierce..

    Its early days TBH, now the remots has about a !/3 sec delay between momevnt and what happins, but that just being picky, the boxing for instance doesnt REALLY work.

    But, its new, and developers are saying that can make the Wiimote about 40% more accurate than games are currently, so its all to look forward too.

    Persoanlly I will NEVER be able to play a action flight sim (like Heatseeker) with a normal pad ever again.

    Boxing 'works' if you do it right, jabbing like a lunatic doesn't come off but lateral movement and considered punches do.

    However, in two player it turns to **** and most of the movement gets lost.

    Flailing arms around like an epileptic elephant normally works for me
