Wii mouse

Use motion capture video game platform as controller

Wii and games like it can capture motion. But Wii games rarely involve violence and some people want that in a game. I propose that the Wii platform (or similar - Kinect?) simply produce output like that of a game controller. The entire console would be used as the controller for a second video game platform. This would enable some of the fun body motion stuff possible with the capture cameras, joined to edgy games available for more conventional platforms.

       The Wii *controllers* can easily be used as controllers for other platforms; they use bluetooth and HID standards.   

       I don't know about using the //entire console//; what would be the advantage of that? I think the smarts are all in the controllers themselves.

       My ignorance is showing. Maybe the Wii is accelerometer controllers and Kinect is motion capture?
