    Nintendo just announced a new accessory for the Wiimote! MotionPlus! The add-on attaches to the bottom of the Wii-mote and more accurately traces motions in 3-D space by better orienting the controller.

    I believe we'll have more details about it tomorrow..

    That sucks. The Wiimote should have had that since the beginning.

    Was just about to post this. [​IMG]

    Figures this would have been nice at launch, better late than never I guess.

    exactly, now we have to pay extra money for something that we shouldve gotten included in the first place.

    Indeed it should be there since launch [​IMG]

    I'm guessing Nintendo will use this on their secret big game they're talking about.. just hope it's not very expensive :/

    I'm sure there're gonna be new Wiimotes with this already-in.

    This is probably an add-on if you already have the old-style Wiimotes.

    It's gonna be better for them that the add-on will be REALLY cheap.

    Probably this big surprise Nintendo has in store at E3 tomorrow. Kid Icarus or whatever it is. Anyways, I think this is retaliation to the 360's supposed new controller thats coming out. That's what I believe anyway...

    Can someone say Wii Sports 2? [​IMG]

    Not impressed that they have to deliver this addon to improve 3D motion support, should have been there from the start. But I hope to see games take proper advantage of this and deliver am much more fluid control experience!

    Woo suddenly Nintendo announces this and everyone is bashing them. Whatever I'm pumped I was telling myself if these new motion controllers from all the rumors are real Nintendo needs some new tech to make people forget about the others.

    I feel like Wiilot don't need it. At least for now (I mean: new games may have improved motion sensor usage)
    Also, if this will be packaged with games that needs it it completely kills the piracy - unless Nintendo will not charge much/ give it for free. Finally however Nintendo thinks about their console.

    So, yeah. Nintendo. Don't think about stupid Trucha patching, think about improving your console. Good move from you.

    EDIT: O shit, does it mean we must change WiiJacket? [​IMG]
