Project Cafe's touch-screen controller confirmed by Nikkei

A lot of crazy theories have been thrown around regarding Nintendo's successor to the Wii, currently dubbed "Project Cafe." Perhaps you heard of the one involving a six inch touch screen controller? A controller that also has a built-in camera? That would be crazy, right?
