Rumours, rumours and again rumours! People are getting crazy, everybody’s anxious and we want more info, more details, more of everything if possible! Actually, who cares about the possible? We want the impossible when it comes to Wii! So, the new rumour about the next generation Wii is that it might have a 6.2 -inch display.
“Is that all?” you might ask. No, of course not. The new 8-button controller might come with 2 analog sticks and a camera. When it comes to its name, we are still undecided: Wii 2, Wii HD or just “Project Cafe”. It’s not like we can choose it but which one would you prefer if you had the opportunity to vote? Maybe we should have a poll. I opt for Wii HD. It sounds like nowadays, more of the present. Getting back to our business, the new Wii will support the new controller in addition to Wii Remote-style controllers for backward compatibility with existing Wii games.
Where do we know all these? Kotaku, the gaming site, came with impressive details regarding the new console:
“The 6.2-inch screen will receive data wirelessly from the Nintendo console and presents an array of options, from putting the player’s inventory or map on the controller screen, to allowing players to combine it with the controller’s camera to snap photos that could be imported into a game or even turning it into some sort of glorified viewfinder (we’re unclear about whether the camera on the controller points at the player or can be outward-facing; we’ve heard both – maybe it swivels?).”
Meanwhile, IGN has confirmed most of these rumours and that’s something that makes us very happy. We got our share of news regarding the new Wii. Now we will be able to survive the wait until the 7 June when E3 starts.
