This new streaming touch screen controller thing sounds like another 'first' thing (and is pretty cool), but unless it's IP based so I can take it outside the house, I'm not sure how useful it would be - maybe during gameplay characters will interact, or a boss would make faces on it, or you could use it as an interactive control pad to diffuse bombs or solve puzzles.

I'll just have to wait to E3 to decide how to feel. I can hear my wife - 'Why do I keep finding the Wii controller in the bathroom?'

Actually according to the specs it isn't, but even they are just rumours so I really have no idea how you've come to that conclusion. Either way when it comes to genuine innovation nintendo are the daddy's so I'll definitely be getting one.

But for now I just want to see it lol, a 6.2 inch touch screen on the controller along with dual analogue sticks and a full compliment of buttons? sounds like the controller is going to be some sort of handheld system in it's own right.
