Nintendo Wii Motion Plus [E3]

Nintendo Wii MotionPlus

Nintendo just released their new Wii-mote addition called the Wii MotionPlus. While the Wii’s controller is able to track movement well, this little piece of hardware will boost the remote’s game tracking control to better represent the movement in 3D space.

What does this mean for games? In the small press release, Nintendo doesn’t say if in Wii tennis, you will be better able to control backspin and topspin by twisting your elbow, but in a sense, thats what this device promises. In golf, your wrist plays a very important role in where the ball is going to go. Nintendo promises a true 1:1 ration, so what we do with our arm in real life, should be transfered to the game exactly. I can’t wait to see what this does.

  1. In my opinion this will take gaming to an entirely different level , it will make it more interactive ,interesting and engaging.

    Adding more physicality to the game experience will also open possibilities towards the fitness field , thus making games healthier and in a much more positive light.

  2. Ahh, you mean as in the tendency towards movement and movement enabled devices may naturally engender more development of devices involved in more physical fitness?

    Yes, I agree this is a great thing.

    There are too many couch potatoes, like me, that don’t wanna do pushups anymore…

    but please no wii push up games…
