View Full Version : Logitech to create Wiimote rival?

August 30th, 2007, 14:37
There's a rumor that Logitech will be releasing their own Wiimote to challenge Nintendo's.


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."

If Logitech release a Wii-Remote that would be awesome because there is a limit with the Nintendo one, and it's known that although third party controllers are ugly and often feel like crap to play with third party controllers are usually better in the form of extra buttons (slow/turbo etc).

If they do get around to making and releasing one I would like to see a NunChuck to accompany it.
