New Microsoft "3iimote" Acknowledges Nintendo's Existence

So, there was news today and yesterday about the
possible motion sensing, wand-like, controller for the Xbox 360 (I am calling the "3iimote",
eh? eh?...come on!) might be coming to shelves in your fine local retailer. And I was
wondering what y'all though about this.

I assume that the DToid front pages posts are showing very rough representations of the
potential product, and the similarity that they have are more to mock Microsoft, rather than
to give an actuall idea of what my come to be.

Also, I wanted to know how the community felt about the fairly clear trend Nintendo is
beginning to create within the industry. Motion sensing controlls has more or less carried
the Wii, for better or for worse, and the fact that Sony has attempted to follow suit, may
have lead to Microsoft jumping on the bandwaggon. Really, all I see coming out of the
production of the "3iimote" is a host of WarioWare and Rayman Rabbids like party games
getting produced for the 360. Again, this would be for better or worse, but, those who own
Wiis got them, at least partly, for the party game motion sensing aspects, on top of a sense
of loyalty and/or dedication to Nintendo products. I know I did.

So, in my first post here on the wonderful DToid, please respond with your ideas on the
situation at hand. Is Microsoft and/or the industry making a move towards the party game
market that Nintendo has held so well for so long? Is Microsoft totally ripping off Nintendo to
see if they can increase sales and take business from Nintendo? Anything?

I more or less want comments on my post just to see how much of a response I could get.

Sorry if bbcode doesn't work, I've never done it before.
