"Wii"ll you buy Motion Plus?

Nintendo announced at E3 2008 the Wii MotionPlus, a plug-in accessory for the Wii-mote. Blogger and people attending the E3 still don't know if it the MotionPlus blocks the nunchuck port and how much more senstitive the add-on will make the Wii-mote. The press release says it has 1:1 sensitivity and will make games with fine movements easier to play....even light saber fights!
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.
