Iwata: 'Not A Whole Lot More' Wii Peripherals Coming
Posted By: John Manalang - Monday, August 04, 2008 11:15 AM

With the plethora of Wii peripherals available in the market - Wii balance board, zapper, steering wheel - it's hard not to imagine what will Nintendo come up with next.

But according to company president Satoru Iwata, the arrivals of new Wii add-ons might be slowing down. "Most of the ideas for accessories that we had initially come up with are out now," said Iwata. "We might think up some more, and we might make them if we do, but we don't have any plans to release a whole lot more."

So far, Wii-Motion Plus is the company's most recent, official add-on. Iwata added that while the cost of making the Wii-Motion plus "is not that much", there will be titles available that can be only played with the add-on. The latest peripheral will be packaged with Wii Sports Resort that will be released in Spring 2009. With Iwata's statement, were you looking forward to any "unique" Wii add-ons from Nintendo? If so, enlighten us...

Are they planning on making the wii-motion plus integrated in the future? It's retarded to buy an add-on that should have been in the original wii-mote.

You know, I'm gonna check it out, there's no question. And it'll probably make a whole lot of a difference to how the Wii-Motion will play out. And I feel like cutting people's heads, there's no question BUT this notion that the Wii doesn't have any new ideas, well they better come up with some.

I know they have Wii Music coming out or whatever and I think they're focusing on that and other things as well. I just hope they pick it up a notch...

Like I said before, all they gotta do is show me Megaman or Zelda and I won't care about them...
