Touchscreen controller confirmed, to be usable as a standalone device?
Arguably the most prominent rumour about the Wii’s successor has been that of a touchscreen-enabled controller. Nikkei, a well-known source of accurate leaks in the past, has “confirmed” that the Wii 2′s controller will, in fact, actually feature that six-inch touchscreen.
And while it wasn’t said directly, a further statement seems to imply that the controller will double as a standalone portable gaming device, too.
Nintendo aims to attract more users by offering a console that doubles as a portable game system.
Even though it’s from a reliable source, this news still isn’t coming from Nintendo themselves, so take it with a grain of salt. But at this point, we’ve heard so much about that touchscreen controller that I’d be more surprised if it wasn’t revealed than if it was.
