Nintendo Introduces the Wii MotionPlus

Nintendo’s upcoming Wii MotionPlus accessory for the revolutionary Wii Remote controller again redefines game control, by more quickly and accurately reflecting motions in a 3-D space.

Wii MotionPlus

The Wii MotionPlus accessory attaches to the end of the Wii Remote and, combined with the accelerometer and the sensor bar, allows for more comprehensive tracking of a player’s arm position and orientation, providing players with an unmatched level of precision and immersion. Every slight movement players make with their wrist or arm is rendered identically in real time on the screen, providing a true 1:1 response in their game play.

The Wii MotionPlus accessory reconfirms Nintendo’s commitment to making games intuitive and accessible for everyone. Nintendo will reveal more details about the Wii MotionPlus accessory and other topics Tuesday morning at its E3 media briefing.

    I wonder what game(s) they will include this with to get it into the majority of the Nintendo Wii owners’ hands. If they don’t get this device in the majority of Wii households then developers won’t support it as much as if it came in the box with your Wii system.

    I wonder why this wasn’t built into the Wii Remote to begin with?

    It’s a hardware patch.

    Mascott is right, lightsaber game. They’ve got that and Wii Sports Resort and at least one other game for the moment, though I’m sure there are more in development.
