Wada: New Wii in 2011, Impact on Natal and PSMC will be “small”

square-enixSquare Enix boss Yoichi Wada has said to the FT that both Project Natal and the PlayStation Motion Controller will only have a “small” impact, when both are expected to release next year.

“Present game machines already have a lot of functions: they are a network terminal, a Blu-ray or DVD player, and a gaming machine. Compared to these three pillars, the [new motion] controllers are quite limited, so the impact may be small.”

Wada also said a brand new Wii will be out by 2011, which will also see a new controller.

Interesting.

You’ll have to sign up to the FT to see the full article, but Joystiq has the gist of it.
