Nintendo Introduces Wii MotionPlus Accessory


Not happy enough with the accuracy of your Wii Remote? Nintendo has announced it will be releasing a Wii MotionPlus accessory, built specifically to improve precision.

The MotionPlus accessory attaches to the end of the Wii Remote, and improves tracking of a player's arm position and orientation. According to Nintendo, MotionPlus provides "a true 1:1 response" during gameplay. The company did not reveal how the Nunchuck will be used when the MotionPlus is attached, although the accessory does look to be equipped with a semi-hidden port on its back.

Nintendo will reveal more details about the Wii MotionPlus at its E3 media briefing tomorrow, which Shacknews will be attending.

    Coming with MotionPlus is Link's Bow Training 2 or something generic like WiiAim!!!

    I wish the remotes were true 1:1 response in the first place.

      Now would be a good time to dig up those old posts from Wii fanboys claiming the Wii had 1:1 response since it was released.

        If you believe real hard the 1:1 response will become unlocked inside!

        as a pointer using the infrared it does. Most Wii owners will agree that the accelerometers are not so accurate.
