Nintendo isn't making its big E3 announcements until tomorrow, but rumor has it that the mockup of the touchscreen-enabled Wii 2 remote (shown below) is quite similar to the real thing. A Japanese source says Nintendo's next generation console will be equipped with a remote stocked with a camera and a six-inch touchscreen, which will allow players to use the remote like a tablet. Other rumors indicate that you can use the touchscreen in conjunction with the game you're playing on a bigger screen, or play the game right on the wireless controller.
As for the official name of the next Wii? Most of us are calling it Wii 2, but new reports indicate Nintendo could just eliminate all the fuss and simply call it Nintendo.
