Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Controller Coming to the Nintendo Wii

In most cases, a controller that's themed to a particular video game isn't something that we get all that excited about. But, of course, there are notable exceptions.

Nintendo Wii 2 Coming in 2011, Featuring HD Output and Blu-ray?

Hot on the heels that Nintendo has managed to sell 30 million units of the wildly popular Nintendo Wii (here in the US), comes a new rumor, mingling with an old one. Nothing wrong with that -- if you hear a rumor enough, doesn't it mean it has to come true?
