    Well, it makes sense. I think people have been waiting for so long for the Wiimote to have that added precision that most will take the dive and buy it - I know I certainly will even if Resort is rubbish.
    EDIT: Plus, thinking about it, having games like this support MotionPlus will create a larger market for it and perhaps cause more companies to incorporate the use of MotionPlus in the future, so it's all win-win at the end of the day.

    this is looking a good game, day one purchase for me... just hope that it sparks interest from more developers to bring more games to the wii. If nintendo have a good E3 (announcing games for people WITH attention spans) and the tightening of the controls.. it could be the start of a Rejuvenation for the wii userbase

    From what I've read about the game, this is going to be a complete restart for Red Steel. Without the MotionPlus, it would just be like any other game that has attempted this sort of combat -- a waggle fest. But Red Steel 2 sounds to be more like Devil May Cry in the first person. I'm very much looking forward to the game. It pisses me off that Nintendo will be charging me an additional $20 per controller to upgrade something I've already spent $60 on, but it doesn't bother me at all that Ubisoft has made the wise decision to preserve the quality of this game by making it MotionPlus only.

    well,

    when it comes to it, there'll be motion+ shovelware too

    i wish nintendo doesnt give the motion+ development tools to shovelware developers

    also,the big N should integrate the motionplus inside new wiimotes

    Hopefully they bundle the game with 1 MP, so it doesn't cost too much.

    They could...and they should. The first game only sold well because it was a launch title with a heavy promise. But after so many folks got burned, they need to win fans back. Bundling MotionPlus accessories in with this type of game will be a very appealing offer, even for any Walmart mom.

    "We have no idea what the penetration rate for Wii MotionPlus will be. We assume high. We would like it to be high."

    Must, not, laugh.

    Honestly, why would someone even say something like that?
