Nintendo patents new controller?
It seems that some snooping through patents has resulted in the discover of a new patent for a Wii controller filed on June 26th. As you can see above, the controller looks sort of like a Game Boy Advance, but with GameCube buttons and a possible slot for the Wii Remote to fit in. The patent’s text is very confusing, so I can’t figure out what the heck it is. If you’re willing to try and spend some time figuring it out, then you can check out the patent details here. The timing of the patent and everything makes it slightly suspicious, with Nintendo’s E3 press conference in 5 days. I wonder if this will ever see the light of day.
