Are you prepared for a future where you will be standing in front of your television, shaking an Xbox 360 type “Wiimote”? Be prepared because this thing could be true.
Some new super secret information has been released by Jake over at 8bitJoystick. Jake posted that the controller is code-named “Newton” and that it could be months before we see some visible proof of this motion controller for the Xbox 360.
Jake also has some hunches about the controller and its compatibility with Xbox 360 accessories.
I have a good feeling that the Xbox Play & Charge battery pack is going to fit on the bottom of the “Newton” controller. That would mean that it is going to be curved, about and inch wide and powered by two AA batteries or an equivalently recharge kit. The Xbox Wireless Racing wheel also can use the Play & Charge kit and was developed by the same division. They also have chargers and multiple product SKUs that use this battery pack.I have a feeling that the “Newton” is likely to come in multiple colors such as white (chill), Black and Pink like the Play & Charge battery packs. There is a white Xbox on the market, and a Black one and a pink colored “Newton” controller would appeal to younger female gamers. That is a gaming market that Nintendo has with the Wii and DS and Microsoft would love to have play Xbox 360.
Could we see the “Newton” this Holiday season? Remains to be seen. Check out the rest of Jake’s article right here.
