Wii owners who favour the motion-sensing control of Nintendo's best-selling system will soon have an extra option after manufacturer Logitech announced it is developing a new controller for the console.

The unnamed device, which will combine both motion-sensing and PS2-style rumble technology, is seen as the next step in the evolution of the Wii.

“[We hope] to have at least one product out for the Wii this year,” said Logitech’s UK and Ireland country manager Chris Spearing. “Having the motion-sensing in the Sixaxis, that really works for some games. And for the Wii – you've seen people rush out and buy the Wii for that realism, if you're swinging a tennis racket, you know how to do it.

"Hopefully we'll be at the forefront of pushing that further, combining some of the two.”

Spearing claims the Wii motion-sensing controller offers room for improvement, adding: "If you couldn't improve on it, we wouldn't be in business, and that's the same for all products."

The Wii is just getting better and better. Once Wii fit comes out here in 2008 it will just go through the roof (like it hasn't already).
