Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, finally took a few moments to answer questions relating to Wii MotionPlus.
Can't wait for games to use MotionPlus. Hopefully some big announcements at E3?
Yeah, I can't wait, either. I think the Motion Plus seriously has the potential to take Wii from "mostly a gimmick" until "legitimately something special." What bugs me is that this is how the damn system should've been released in the first place.
I agree, it should have been part of the initial system launch. I just hope that it moves beyond a simple 'Wii sports' concept and branches into mature games which utilise the increased functionality in an engaging way. P.S I want some damn JRPG's for the Wii... ;)
Silellak, there's probably a very easy response to your question but because I'm not working for Nintendo I could never properly answer you. If i had to take a guess I'd say they either didn't have the hardware when the wii was coming out or it was too expensive to produce at the time. Nintendo had a pretty clear strategy coming in and this could have clashed with what they were trying to do. Now that we have M+ hopefully Nintendo and other companies can take advantage.
Too bad I sold my Wii to buy real games.
Go make me some %&$KIN@ games you pr!ck. MY wii is collecting nothing but peripherals and DUST.
