IGN got their hands on some interesting details of the controller for the Nintendo Wii, the Wii-Mote. It'll be powered by AA batteries and get anywhere from 30-60 hours of life. It will only have digital buttons (meaning no analog trigger that we're so used to by now) which I find odd, seeing as analog buttons have become an important gameplay element in many games. It connects to the console via Bluetooth on a 2.4 GHz band, assigning a unique ID to each controller based on a SYNCHRO button on the console and on the wii-mote. It has some internal memory, which IGN speculates is for use with the in-controller speaker or to save preferences. And, finally, we learn about the sensor bar which is 20 cm long and sits below or above your TV. Nintendo documentation states that halogen lamps, flourescent lights, plastic, mirrors, etc. may interfere with the wii-mote.
