Default MotionPlus: Nintendo's Official Wii Remote Add-on

Getting a jump on their press brief tomorrow, Nintendo announced an add-on for the Wii-mote to "allow for more comprehensive tracking of a player's arm position and orientation." I hope it will work with all Wii games to make it more accurate and not just software that's specifically written for it. No price or availability mentioned.

Well the tracking for moving the wiimote closer or further from the television needed work. This was essential before the launch of the Dildo attachments. Wait until the strap-on attachment is released!

Wow, honestly I thought that for most game situations the wiimote was already accurate enough (but yeah for some it was more of a general approximation, boxing for instance). If this attachment basically just automatically makes controls that much more accurate then it should really improve the game experience.
