IGN: Project Cafe: Design Your Wii 2

IGN writes: "Reports, rumors, and speculation about Nintendo's next home console are at a fever pitch, particularly since the publisher has confirmed the Wii successor will make its playable debut at this year's E3 2011, which begins on June 7".

The story is too old to be commented.

I have this feeling that I am going to be disappointed with Nintendo's Next generation controller.

I just feel like I am going to be disappointed with the cost. Especially cus, for me, Nintendo's consoles are meant to be played with 2-4 people - almost never solo (unless you're playing mario and such). Now with an lcd on the controller, it will cost so much more than a regular one.

I hope it will be an optional feature....

It would be cool to have the option of configuring the orientation of the analogues and buttons. Like having a spinning mechanism to choose between the 360 config or ps3 config or opposite ps3 config (both analogues above while dpad and buttons below).

Edit: Kinda like this but better and with both sides

idk but for some reason i feel like the Wii 2 might be a good console


I don't think you can design a Wii 2 controller without considering the current Wii remote... I don't believe Ninty reached such a popularity with the controller and the whole movement thing just to throw it away now.

Either Project Cafe will keep Wiimote compatibility on focus (maybe even come bundled with one) or the new controller will have all the Wiimote capabilities.

IMO all next gen consoles should come bundled with both a classic/standard controller and a motion one, just to make sure both get supported (but not forced) this time around.
