Nintendo Wii 2 Features Touchscreen Controller
Nintendo has announced that it will roll out the next Wii gaming console at the E3 2011 conference to be held in L.A. this week. The details of the much-rumored Wii’s unique controller also have been confirmed.
Nikkei, a Japanese source which has correctly predicted numerous Nintendo rollouts in the past has confirmed that the Wii’s controller will have a touchscreen with a “size of about 6 inches.” The controller will have a camera on board as well, giving users tablet-like control of games and will be powered by a built-in rechargeable battery.
According to Nikkei, the release date of the next Wii could be in mid-2012. Nintendo is still not saying what it has named its next gaming console, code-naming it “Project Café” and saying nothing more than it will be “the successor to the Wii.” even though it’s being called the Wii 2 across the web and beyond.
These ‘rumours’ seem plausible, but Wii fans won’t get all the official details in anticipation of the Nintendo press conference at E3 at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at Noon EDT, 9 a.m. PDT.View Article Source »
