Nintendo may change Wiimote accelerometer guts

Nintendo says they have plans to look at other companies to supply the accelerometer for their Wiimote. Right now, STMicroelectronics is the company that provides the $3 chip. Other companies such as Kionix Inc, and Tronics have solutions that could easily be adopted for the Wiimote. Apparently, some small improvements could come with the inclusion of a new chip. Be prepared for these companies to fight tooth-and-nail for Wiimote placement.
