    Possible Wii U Haptics Tech Peripheral Lined up for E3 Demo

    Make no mistake about it, this yearís E3 is going to be all about the Wii U, with everyone expecting Nintendo to launch its next console in grand style at this Juneís gaming extravaganza in LA. This means that peripheral makers are also getting ready to reveal their Wii U-compatible wares, and according to a rumour reported on by Nintendo Life, this could include a Wii U peripheral from haptics tech company ViviTouch. The information comes from a leaked E3 floor plan that seems to indicate that ViviTouch will be demonstrating an unnamed Wii U peripheral that features its haptic technology. For those unfamiliar with the technology, it basically is said to create a more immersive gameplaying experience. The details are all a little sketchy at the moment, as with all the best rumours, so we donít even know if this means that the Wii U controller will actually have built-in haptics technology, or just that ViviTouch will be launching its own third-party controller or add-on for the new Nintendo console. Still itís an interesting thought to ponder.

    I would doubt that some sort of extra 3rd party peripheral focusing around an enhanced rumble tech experience would be any sort of profitable idea, so my guess is that somethin' official of the WiiU is gonna have ViviTouch's haptic stuff; the tablet, most obviously.

    'Course, that's just a guess based off of a rumor, so... I ain't bettin' nothin'.
