Nyko’s director of marketing, Chris Arbogast, has stated that the company doesn’t see controllers going the way of the dinosaur any time soon and that it will be quite a while before peripherals like Project Natal become a mainstay.
“People in the casual market like feeling something physical to keep your hands aligned,” he told Joystiq. “When you grab the Wiimote and swing it, it feels like you’re swinging a baseball bat, versus pantomiming swinging a bat.
“I think that if you take all [the controllers] away and you’re just pantomiming everything, there may be some disconnect with realism there.”
He does admit that if Project Natal becomes a massive hit, the company will have to rethink things a bit.
“We’ll have to think of other ways we can accessorize and augment the players’ experience,” he added. “Not with a controller anymore, but with other things to add to that camera functionality. It could be a whole new avenue of business that opens up for us because we’ll be forced to challenge ourselves.”

Console peripheral firm, Nyko, unveiled a new Wii-mote at CES 09 in Las Vegas last night called The Wand.
Although looking like a tarted up version of the original, The Wand will apparently use Trans-Port technology which, according to CNet, will allow “compatible devices to take advantage of functionality not always available in current Wii remote accessories” like featuring full force feedback and other wonderful things like that.
The Wand will go on sale in the US in April. No price has been given.

According to this Bloomberg report, Nintendo is suing peripheral manufacturer Nyko over its Kama Nunchuk Wii controller.
The Nyko product “wholly appropriates the novel shape, design, overall appearance and even the color and materials used in the Nintendo Nunchuk controller,” Nintendo said in the federal court complaint, filed June 10 in Seattle.
“We have not knowingly violated anyone’s intellectual property and we’re still examining this,” said Nyko spokesman CC Swiney.
