Wii - New Product Launch by Holidays 2012

Wii - New Product Launch by Holidays 2012

For those that love the Wii gaming console, it may be time to save some money for the upcoming holiday season. There is news out that indicates that the company will be launching its new product just in time for the holiday season and they will do so in Asia, Europe and the US. The next generation of the system is sure to be a hot seller but questions about what it will offer and why it will be valuable are still unanswered for the most part.

We do know that the next generation of the Wii will have an integrated touch card technology included in its controllers. The president of the company stated that the device will use near field communication, or NFC. What does this mean for the new console? It will implement systems and programs that operate using the same technology as "tap and go payment systems." This could help to make it easier for the programs to use everything from cards to figurines to interact with on the device. The device will also have a motion detection feature, a camera and a touch screen application included.

When will we really know what the console will offer? Chances are good that this information will not be fully available until June of 2012. At the Electronic Entertainment Expo, more commonly known as E3, the company plans to provide more information. The event takes place in June in LA.   

Are you excited about the launch of the new product? More importantly, will you be one of the many in line and ready to buy it when it launches?
