Rezvolution / Wiinesthesia?

by Nick Montfort · , 1:13 pm

Confirmed: The Nintendo Wii will arrive in the U.S. November 19, priced just under $250, with Wii Sports and one primary and one secondary controller bundled. (A typical package at a low price, but I wonder: If it’s really for “we,” why not include two controllers of the same type to make the system ready for two-player gaming?) Thirty titles are to be available at launch time.

Rez and Wii? Pure rumor that apparently originated in Electronic Gaming Monthly, but which I can’t resist propagating: A Rez sequel or Rez-like game is in development for the Wii by Tetsuya Mizuguchi. You can read a discussion of Rez in McKenzie Wark’s GAM3R 7H30RY and see the trailer for Rez on YouTube.
