    WHY?!

    I've already got something for this purpose, it's called a 3DS. I won't be buying a Wii 2, as if this rumour is true, I see absolutely NO point in the controller. It's not revolutionary. It's just printing gold bars.

    you can use the controller as a tv and the console itself is also wireless that means you could take it with you anywhere and play it [​IMG]

    The source is from Nikkei and they're pretty much on the ball.

    I like that Nintendo is going in a new direction with things, like they always do. I'm a bit concerned about the cost though, and I'm really confused as to how this will find its way into gameplay.

    On a side note, I can't wait to see Sony steal this idea and try to pass it off as their own.

    EDIT: What the fuck happened to buttons?!

    Nothing, yet. The controller will include a touch screen, not "consist entirely of" one. So there might still be buttons. There better.

    ABOUT DAMN TIME! God I hate how the wii-mote uses non-rechargeable batteries. It got really expensive over time and even using rechargeable batteries became annoying since my wii-motes all ate through them faster than the non-rechargeable batteries.

    Yeah, that would be classic Sony.
    I believe what happened to the "PSP on PS3" idea was that Nintendo didn't put enough emphasis on their "GBA on GameCube" control scheme to make it worth the time to steal.

    The first post claims that it will have "tablet-like controls", I think that means buttons will take a back seat.

    I'm actually quite intrigued about this. I can imagine them implementing streetpass into this.

    Okay a normal controller for any console costs about £30, add Screen to it.. lets say £50?
    BUT FUCK! Who the fuck wants to pay £50 for a controller? A SIMPLE BASIC GAMING CONTROLLER!

    "NEXT GEN GAMING" on a little screen on the controller? HD? Resolution?
    Are you fucking kidding me...

    Fuck the Wii 2. I've been appreciative of Nintendo hardware up to now, and it seems they've priced themselves out of the market.

    No no no no no no no no no.

    Seriously, i dont want cameras, or touch screens or anything like that on my controller.

    I want analog sticks, d-pad, and buttons. I'm sorry but in my opinion, gaming has become nothing but a fad and a big joke now. Everything has to have camera's. Everything has to have motion control. Everything has to have touch screen. It's stupid. It's getting to the point where, I don't want the console because of that stuff.

    And if one of the controllers break, you know it's going to cost more than an Xbox 360 controller because of the crap they have inside of it.

    I'm sorry but if this rumor is true, this is one time where I won't be supporting Nintendo.

    Well, I will accept the Screen/Touch screen...
    but lets talk about cost, screen resolution?
    Will they be able to take everything in consideration make it affordable? Think NOT.

    Motion controls were ok, but when the wiimote has less buttons than a SNES controller? This isn't backwards compatibility. It's GOING backwards! What a bouncing heap of BS
