The announcement of Wii MotionPlus was somewhat surprising, especially considering that the peripheral was unveiled a day before E3. Although, without a doubt, Wii MotionPlus is sure to add precision to future games. According to EA, the current standalone Wii controller is considerably imprecise, which unfortunately, can impact how well the control is on certain games.
"The Wii MotionPlus is going to be good. If I had to pick one thing we suffered from, it was imprecise control on the Wii. That meant certain genres were never going to perform as well on the Wii. There are a couple of franchises in our booth. Go look at Dead Space and imagine playing that game with a wand and a Nunchuk. If they improve the precision, then you could have a good experience. There is no doubt that Wii Speak will appeal to a certain group of people. I thought what was nice is that they created an opportunity for third parties to be more successful." - Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello
