The "mouse" is an extra attachment to the square remote...

If you're like me, one look and you think, "What in the world is that thing?" or "It's a freakin' TV remote control!" or "What am I supposed to do with that?"

It's actually a next-generation video game controller by Nintendo. The idea is that you hold it in your hand, wave it around in the air like a magic wand...and the game responds to you movements! Cool! But does it really work?

The hype is already building up, and there's a lot of potential for something innovative like this, but I'll have to see this for myself first...in about a year from now...

From IGN.com
It is essentially a wireless, square remote that works something like a computer mouse would in 3D space. Imagine sticking your hand into a virtual box and having your TV understand how it's moving in there. Now you're getting the idea.

Main Controller Features
  • 3D Pointing. Sensors understand up, down, left, right, forward and backward.
  • Tilt Sensitive. Controller can be rotated or rolled from side-to-side.
  • Buttons Included. Has a trigger on its backside, face buttons, and a D-Pad.
  • Multifunctional. Has an expansion port which can be used with different types of controller peripherals. Analog stick with two trigger buttons planned for left hand.
  • Wireless. Totally wire-free. Currently there are no details on the max distance, source or power, or otherwise.
  • Rumble Built-in. Included as a standard in all the controllers.

Either that or they become a niche video game developer...one theory is that this might actually expand the industry, bringing in new people who wouldn't normally play video games...
