Square Enix Prez Stares Into Crystal Ball; Sees New Wii in 2011

Thoughts also passed on motion control

Square Enix president Yoichi Wada has opened his mouth and allowed various predictions to spew forth, some of which were collected and bottled during an interview with The Financial Times.

Wada has foretold that Nintendo's successor to the Wii will be available in 2011, and is likely to be closer to the PS3/360 in terms of specifications.

Another insightful prophecy was the revelation that the new machine might be bundled with a different type of controller. Someone get this guy to pick next week's winning lottery numbers!

Elsewhere in the interview the Square Enix head man touched upon Microsoft and Sony's upcoming motion control systems. Wada is unsure they will have a massive impact on the fortunes of their relevant platforms because of the sheer amount of functions both machines currently offer to the consumer.
