Is the Wiimote getting tweaked?

German gaming site reports.

Kotaku

There was much fanfare over here as fellow Craver Will Greenwald finally got his hands on a Wii earlier this week, but new rumors about the blogosphere* are indicating that the much-coveted Nintendo console may already be due for a bit of a facelift. Well, not really. But the Wiimote, of screen-smashing fame, might be getting some adjustments to deal with some of the most common user complaints. According to a German gaming news site, the grip will be improved to make it a little easier to hold onto, and the Wiimote will somehow have a rechargeable battery. As Kotaku blogger Luke Plunkett says, "That'd be swell, Nintendo, since Twilight Princess eats batteries like they were yummy cakes." Mmm, yummy cakes.

Nevertheless, it's still a rumor (always be skeptical when new product announcements have to be run through a Babelfish translator before you can understand them), but I wouldn't be surprised if the Wiimote saw rechargeable battery features in the near future.

*Sorry for using that horrible, horrible word. Got a good alternative?
