Joystiq has what it is billing as an update on the next generation of the Wii. According to Yoichi Wada–president of Square Enix, the biggest Japanese game house the next-generation, high definition Wii will offer the same capabilities as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, while adding a brand new motion controller. We’ll apparently get out mitts on it in 2011.
Wada also had a pop at rivals Microsoft and Sony telling the FT “Present game machines already have a lot of functions: they are a network terminal, a Blu-ray or DVD player, and a gaming machine. Compared to these three pillars, the [new motion] controllers are quite limited, so the impact may be small,”
