Earlier on this week we informed you that the Nintendo Wii 2 may be equipped with a camera built into it’s controller pads, and now we have some more information for you. It turns out that the camera thought to be included on the Nintendo Wii 2, also known as Project Cafe, will be built by the same company that designed the iPhone camera.
The rumors have surfaced from Kotaku, who report that Omnivision are the company that could be designing cameras for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii successor. This is likely due to the fact that Omnivision dropped a pretty big hint during their last financial results that they had a acquired a ‘significant design win’ for an upcoming gaming console.
It doesn’t take too long to work out that the company they are probably referring to is Nintendo. If the news is true and this is yet another potential E3 2011 spoiler, it can only mean great things for future Wii 2 buyers, as the camera on the iPhone is right up there with the best and proves that it’s not all about the higher megapixel number, but rather the quality behind it.
So not only will these Nintendo Wii 2 controllers have a large touchscreen display built into them, but they may also have a camera on them too – pretty outrageous when you think about it. I for one can’t wait until E3 kicks off, it’s going to be a cracker.
