Wii 2: New Rumors Emerge, Including Code Name: "Project Cafe"

More rumors are emerging about the Wii 2, or Wii HD, the not-announced successor to the Nintendo Wii, including some details on what sounds like a very innovative (but plausible) controller, as well as a code-name. You may well be playing something that is codenamed "Project Cafe," if these reports turn out to be true, and Nintendo is actually working on a Wii successor.

Your home Wii 2, Wii HD or Codename: Project Cafe will be rocking a very interesting controller that basically combines an iPhone and a GameCube controller. According to IGN's sources, the new Nintendo controller will "feature dual analog sticks in addition to standard d-pad and trigger buttons," but will also (supposedly) feature a six-inch screen that will allow you to stream game content to the controller from the console to the screen, including beaming full games to the device, like it's a miniature television.Not only that, it will sport a front facing camera, too.

French site 01net.com's unconfirmed report says the device will sport a “custom IBM PowerPC with three cores”, an ATI-built GPU, and at least 512MB in memory, putting it on-par with a 360. It will also reportedly be backwards compatible with both the Wii and the Gamecube.

According to the translation of the French site, "there is another big surprise they can't talk about just yet."

I hope it's an onboard coffee maker! What would you like to see in Wii successor.
