To give you a more realistic driving experience on your Wii, Logitech today announced the Logitech(R) Speed Force Wireless(TM) racing wheel – the first force feedback wheel for the popular gaming platform. Licensed by Nintendo, Logitech’s newest force feedback wheel works with Electronic Arts’ Need for Speed(TM) Undercover and paves the way for more force feedback racing titles on the Wii console.

“We’re excited to team up with Nintendo and Electronic Arts to bring driving realism to the Wii and Need for Speed Undercover,” said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming. “Logitech has been at the forefront of force feedback technology for more than a decade, and we’re confident that our driving platform will be an indispensable part of the racing experience on Wii as more titles that support it become available.”

“As the world’s most popular racing franchise, Need for Speed is committed to delivering players superior racing experiences,” said Larry LaPierre, Vice President at Black Box, developer of Need for Speed. “This November, Wii gamers can fully experience the thrill of the chase in Need for Speed Undercover with Logitech’s force feedback realism.”

Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono has gone on the record with 1UP and admitted that the game is “definitely doable” on Wii. Moreover, in the same interview, Ono reaffirmed that if there is a strong possibility in terms of satisfying sales, Capcom would be up for bringing Street Fighter IV to the Wii. “Yeah, it’s definitely true that we’ve had a lot of requests for a port for the Wii. And it’s definitely doable. We just don’t have any plans for it yet, that’s all. If we feel strongly enough that it would sell, I’d imagine we’d do it.”

My question is, since there seems to be a pretty strong demand for the game on Wii, shouldn’t Capcom be considering the possibility more? If not, this could still be a sign. In the future, it does seem probable that Capcom will port or bring the game to the Wii somehow…It might just be a matter of when.

The Leipzig trailer seems pretty similar to the E3 one, but have a look anyway!

As of late, it feels as though Nintendo is being sued every other month. Companies file reports that Nintendo has copied this and that, thus leading into disputes. Hillcrest Labs is the latest establishment to be going after Nintendo. The company has sued Nintendo over claims that the big N is utilizing their motion-control creations in the Wii system.

The ITC will be investigating the situation and has the power to block imports of products which violate U.S. patents. Nintendo is additionally facing a lawsuit that could ban the Wii Classic Controller.
