We’ve had a bee in our bonnet about Nintendo’s Wii accessories (which seem almost required purchases for the newest games) for a while, but now head honcho Satoru Iwata says they’ll ease off on the hardware for a while.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, the Nintendo president said “most of the ideas for accessories that we had initially come up with are out now,” adding that, while a couple more might crop up in the distant future the Nintendo team “don’t have any plans to release a whole lot more.”
That comes as something of a relief after the pricey Wii Fit board (which you’ll also need to drum in Wii Music), news that lots of new games will require a Wii MotionPlus add-on, and that to chat with friends we’ll need to invest in a WiiSpeak microphone.
What do you think? Is the Big N right to reign back its accessory push? Give us a shout in the comments section.
