Xbox Next controller will be wireless...
17:36 Has tech hound website The Inquirer got a secret line to Uncle Bill or maybe a bug planted in his back pocket? Ah no it's those pesky Xbox partners who've blown the lid again on another Xbox 2 exclusive - or at least that's what The Inquirer is claiming.
This week's revelation? Well it's that Xbox 2, Next, Xenon or 360 (delete as appropriate) will feature controllers which are wireless as standard. Marvellous of course if true and it certainly does make a lot of sense given how annoying and dangerous those longer-than-long Controller S leads usually are.
It is rather too easy to trip over when drunk and take a header straight through the telly at crucial beer refuelling moments. We've lost several widescreen models and not a few brain cells already that way.
Okay so perhaps it's not the all-consuming, earth-shattering revelation you'd expect, but hey it lightens up a rather long Wednesday afternoon in the current graveyard of Xbox 2 news.
Xbox 2 we salute your potential wireless controller future. Hurrah
