Wii MotionPlus

wii-motion-plusA new add-on for the Nintendo Wii has been created. It is named the MotionPlus and what it does is ads even more accuracy to the accelerometers which control where the WiiMote moves. The new accuracy brings a 1:1 response making games highly accurate. If you move the remote 1 inch then the cursor will also move 1 inch on the screen.


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.

To be honest, I think this should be included in the WiiMote as standard, and hopefully the next WiiMotes will come with it built in.

  1. Not having really used a Wii much, I wasn’t aware there was any issue with accuracy – this certainly hasn’t been mentioned until they want to sell an add-on? 😉

  2. Good thought Zath! I have only played a few games on the Wii and hadn’t noticed anything weird. They must have been keeping things hush about it all. LOL.
