Let's see if that name sticks. :) There's been all kinds of rumors flying around the past week about the Wiii.. some of them include: touch screen controller, 1080p output, built in 3D (why not, right?!). Nintendo sent out an invitation to their E3 booth for the unveiling of the new hotness.

Re: Wii's successor system
Nintendo Co., Ltd. has decided to launch in 2012 a system to succeed Wii, which the company has sold 86.01 million units on a consolidated shipment basis between its launch in 2006 and the end of March 2011.
We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles.
Sales of this new system have not been included in the financial forecast announced today for the fiscal term ending March 2012.
We'll have to wait till June to see what the Wiii is all about! Stay tuned!
