EA Sports senior vice president Steve Chiang has expressed that Nintendo's peripheral may be a slight concern.
I really hope MotionPlus sales are great. I want a lot of games in the future to use it.
This is one of the things I find annoying about Nintendo. It's accessories after accessories. The worse part is eventually many of the games require the accessory to play.
I see where you are coming from but my thoughts are, if MotionPlus is as good as people say it is, why would we want anything less? I agree with your points though.
the wii is already atleast $150 overpriced, this is maddening.
Kev, Consider this. Motion plus build in the controlers from the beginning...( boy would that have been a huge controller than) and you claim its 150 over priced....but what do you think would have happened if it was build in? With the higher production costs back in 2005/2006?
people bash microsoft all the time about nickel and diming their costumers. (sometimes deservedly) but nintendo gets a pass. wtf. heres a motion controller now heres an ad-on that makes it work like its supposed to. :)
MS deserves the ridicule with some of its add-ons. But I find it surprising no one does the same for Wii. Maybe its because the Wii is still one of the best selling consoles ever. Its kind of hard to knock the king off of his billion dollar throne.
Wii isnt a real console, so give it a break.
maniacmayhem the difference is people actually want the things nintendo is selling. Also nintendo has more happy customers than MS or SONY. Hey if you want to take nintendo down then sure I can see why you didn't see those things. Also nintendo has some thing called choice a lot of times.
"N4G. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." - Old Klingon Proverb N4G is (arguably) a place that attracts a mostly hardcore audience. The Wii attracts casual consumers. Their kind don't hang out here. Therefore, you never see them complain about accessories. But they do. Oh boy, they do.
Dude- your reference is wrong. Try again. Hint: the other space movie.
what do they mean? nintendo is trying to force people into buyin some kind of bundle so they are not making a lot of stand alone or that they think demand will outweigh supply? doesnt matter to me just wondering

" Nope, Nintendo doesn't have more happy customers. They have customers that don't care. They don't speak up if they're unhappy. They're the following sheep that are just not that demanding. Many of the ones owning a Wii have it standing there catching dust. But they just don't care. Hell they don't even think about the fact that the Wiimote now is not good enough, they buy the Motion plus addon as sheep, but its a thing Nintendo should have made the Wiimote like at the beginning. You can even see it on N4G. Not so much people with a Wii posting inhere. If it sells the most, why is it that the 360 and PS3 fans are in much higher numbers here and everwhere around the net? Because 360/PS3 gamers DO care. Wii owners just don't care. You can shove them piles of shiatware down their throats and they will just swallow that nonsense. Wii audience are nongamers. The following sheep. Nintendo could even sell a bag of donkey shiat to them and they would still be happy. Pretty sad. The target group is just dumb, retarded.
bubble up :0
lololol why you bought one? lol
Sony is shoving blu-ray down people's throats but nothing is said about that. A ps3 without blu-ray would be about half the price.
wouldn't feel like a ps3 at all. Its not like they decided to make blu-ray an add on that would be needed to play the console to its full potential.
wii players for the most part are not going to be interested in motion plus in my opinion. firstly, they dont buy games , secondly, as long as motion plus isnt needed for wii sports or a rousing session of carnival games it wont matter to them. maybe if it packaged with either a mario or zelda game that is unplayable without motion plus nintendo will move units.
First off there are alot of hardcore gamers who love the wii!i'am 26 years old ive been playing games sence i was 5 thats 21 years.the reason you don't see us posting alot is cause we are so happy with our console and we don't have to cry about the 360 or ps3 on there storys we only post on our console's storys we don't feel threaten by those system so why post about them!i never see a ps3 or 360 story about a new game or device and think oh i better post how i dislike 360 or ps3 why cause i don't own one and don't want one so want's the point on posting on those story's when it has nothing to do with my systems of choice which are wii and dsi and ds lite! cause if you don't like nintendo systems or don't own them why post about them.it makes know sence unless you hate that nintendo is killing in sales!what you can't figure out is that there are alot of good games for wii's hardcore players cause true hardcore player's play all games not just the so call core if you only play one type of game like just core, then you are a causal player! a real hardcore player can play a casual game like birds an beans for dsi and get a super high score and learn everything about the game and play the heck out of it until there super good or know everthing about it. it's how you play games that makes you hardcore not so much the game!that's what is so great about wii motion plus it give us true one on one control for the hardcore nintendo is makeing it better for us and you guy's complain if you don't like it why do you care let us nintendo fans worry if we need something to make playing our wii's better's!it's funner how the so called hardcore complained about the wii remote not being precise enough but thet fix it and you still complain that how we know you guy's just cry to cry cause if you weren't worried about how much better the wii is going to be with it you wouldnt post cause it has nothing too do with your systems!!!!!
i've been waiting to long (as usual) for this addon. I own a ps3 since day one, an xbox since the end of last year (i already had the ps3 and was waithing for a good deal and RROD to calm down a bit) and a psp. i bought my girlfriend a wii when they first came out. i love the hastle free play from the ps3 and free PSN, i love the fact the a couple more of my mates has 360's so i can't play with them and i love the psp with m33. however with the wii a can have nights playing with others who arn't hardcore and just after a laught with a few cans. however some find the controls not quite doing what they wanted to even when not drunk or a little tipsy. due to spending many hours with this wii and many other games on differant consoles and computers over the years i strugle less and pick up the controls quicker. the motionplus would not only improve my scores (aslong as the sensitivity was not to high or false readings were being read) but it would bridge the gap between my friends and myself. My girlfriend has pretty poor eyesight and also strugles to do the correct moevement due to the confusing controls sometimes. if the conrols were more natural (like they're supposed to be) she would enjoy more from it. Computer gadtgets come out much more quicker and freqantly due to an more open and competative marker for a bunch of manafactures instead of the first party domenancy the console market has with controls dues to generaly poor quality and features in third part ones.
Hehe, I been quite a hardcore gamer, and the Wii is the best system to play with friends, the other systems seem to only have rock band/guitar hero to cater to everyone. MotionPlus will be very fun, and I'll be getting Tiger Woods and Grand Slam Tennis when it comes out.
Short ship it to make interest seem extremely high so that everybody thinks it's the greatest. Same as they did with the system, Mario Kart, & Wii Fit. Send out small, sporadic quantities.
