Default Rumor: Wii successor has controller with giant touchscreen, also uses motion controls

Some purported new information about the still-unannounced Wii successor paints a surprisingly specific picture of the device's controller. Kotaku reports that, according to unnamed sources, the controller for the "Project Cafe" device will have eight buttons, two analog sticks, a camera ... and an enormous 6.2" touchscreen.

For reference, the DSi XL has 4.2" screens. The Kindle has a 6" screen. If these rumors are true, this controller will likely be crazy expensive. We honestly can't see Nintendo getting away with selling $200+ controllers.

Kotaku also reports that this won't be the only accepted control method. "Project Cafe" will also reportedly support "Wii Remote-style controllers," the site says, though it's currently unknown whether that means the existing Wiimote or a new motion device.

Maybe they are going to move more of their tech from the console to the controller?

If the console is revolutionary and "worth the money", then it would sell...

I'd be interested to see how it turns out. The wiimote was always buggy as for me and It wasn't a very effective controller. Very intuitive. Not very effective. IMHO anyway . I can see "project cafe" being the same... A very intuitive system marketed to the niche market of gamers. That is, anyone that isn't a teenage guy
