Successor To Wii Coming In 2012
The successor to Nintendo’s hit Wii console will arrive next year, Nintendo said yesterday. The company didn’t say what the new system will do, but plans to show a playable model of the new console at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which runs June 7-9 in Los Angeles. Nintendo sold 86 million Wiis since launching it in 2006. The Wii caused a splash with its innovative motion-sensing controller. Sports-style games such as baseball and boxing lets players move their arms to simulate the pitching of a ball or the throwing of a punch. Nintendo also makes a step-board accessory that allows players to dance or do yoga.
