If you haven’t heard by now, Nintendo is planning on releasing Wii Motion Plus. Essentially this will make the motion sensor’s for the Wii-motes that much better. There are concerns, however, that since this isnt’ an update and is something you have to buy that it will be expensive. Satoru Iwata says fear not, it should be cheap:
“There will be games that will be enhanced by the Wii Motion Plus as well as games that can only be played with it. Users will need four if they have four controllers, but we’re going to try to offer it for as little as possible. We haven’t announced the price yet, but the cost of making the Wii Motion Plus is not that much, so I think we can make it very affordable.”
One of the games that is claiming to use Wii Motion Plus in the future is Red Steel 2. Only time will tell how much better this will make Wii games. Hopefully Iwata is right when he tells us it will be inexpensive to purchase.
