Peripherals company hoping to combine motion-sensing with rumble; first Wii product to launch this year
GamesIndustry.biz has learned that Logitech is soon to announce a new peripheral for the Wii, which may aim to challenge the Wii Remote.
In an exclusive interview, UK and Ireland country manager Chris Spearing explained that Logitech hopes "to have at least one product out for the Wii this year," and went on to discuss the debate between rumble versus motion-sensing,
"Having the motion-sensing in the Sixaxis, that really works for some games. And for the Wii – you've seen people rush out and buy the Wii for that realism, if you're swinging a tennis racket, you know how to do it."
"Hopefully we'll be at the forefront of pushing that further, combining some of the two."
Spearing also spoke of his admiration of Nintendo's business plan in releasing the Wii and DS, resulting in a significant expansion of the market. However, he was clear that although new peripherals such as the Wii Remote have been effective, there's plenty to improve on.
"If you couldn't improve on it, we wouldn't be in business, and that's the same for all products."
