RUMOR - Nintendo at work on new Wiimote

GN 1.0 / 2.0

Japanese publication Game Lab is running an interesting rumor. According to them, Nintendo is already working on a new version of the Wiimote. Don’t worry, it isn’t anything that will render your current Wiimote obsolete. This version will have a better grip, and will come with a rechargeable battery. Both of these ideas seem extremely plausible to me. The only thing that stops me from 100% believing this rumor is that Reggie himself said that if you want a rechargeable Wiimote solution, you’ll have to look towards third parties. You know how the Big N is, always secretive. What do you guys think, real or fake?
