Wiimote To Use AA Batteries

According to Joystiq, the Wiimote will use two AA batteries which should last about 30-60 hours. This is a bit of a disappointment. We leave the vibration off of our Logitech wireless PS2 controller because the battery life is so much better. With it, it's about 50-70 (guestimate) and feels pretty short.

I'll have to wait for some hands-on reviews to appear to see how it works out, but I really hate throwing batteries at devices in this day and age. Give me something that recharges and a dock anyday of the week. I would have thought that after the GBASP, this would be a lesson Nintendo would agree with. Course, this is Nintendo ... so they'll probably introduce a more elegant design the following year...
