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. 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.
So this device says to me "Well, the Wii didn't really work the way we wanted it to in the first place, but now it does. Give us more money." Is this gonna make Red Steel good?

To put it in AGI terms, "what a colossal ripoff!"I'm sorry, it's bad enough they create a subpowered overpriced console that only has 1st party software worth a d@mn (limited at that), they release a $100 piece of plastic for crappy exercise games (go outside fatty) and now this. I wonder if they'll bundle some terrible software with it for $20? Someone cue the koolaid man, oh wait, someone has to the tune of way too many millions in sales. I just don't get it.

I hate on the Wii all the time, but what the hell is your guys' problem? They're making the Wiimote how it should've been all this time. When the Wii's motion controls were announced for the first time, I imagined having stuff like Police 911 and that one motion-controlled samurai game in your own living room. Of course, we didn't get that, but now we can. Maybe I'll buy a Wii if these turn out how I'm hoping.

If it's free, that's fine, if they charge for it there is no difference between this and Sony charging for the rumble controllers except for maybe the price. It's bs.

This might be the reason Ubisoft delayed Red Steel 2 and hit the reset button on it. Ubisoft is a good developer when they actually put effort and because they reset the project from scratch I have to say that this one has a chance of being very good.

Maybe if they bundle it with Wii Sports 2...

I love the Wii... thought it worked well... and now something to make it work better is a rip off? Some of you sound like ya'll are hating just for the sake of hating.

I've been playing wii sports resort, and I gotta say the wii motion plus kind of really really sucks. It does have 1:1 motion sensing, when you are only twisting your wrist. But in my time with it, it needs to be recalibrated way too frequently and gets off center when moved around fast. I hope that developers will be able to get more out of it, but I really don't notice that much of a difference than what I was doing before and I really really REALLY don't want to keep pausing to recalibrate my controller every few minutes.

I've had to recalibrate it a few times, but not that often at all. I think it's awesome as hell. The sword fighting is addictive as fuck and everything is so much more responsive.Maybe you got a defective one? You should take it back and see if you can get one that doesn't lose calibration so often.
