We mucky commoners have known about the Wii MotionPlus add-on for just over a week now, but don't go thinking it's any different for third-party developers.
developers have about 8~9 months before it gets released. seriously if they cant manage to migrate it in their projects they must be doing something wrong. in 9 months developers can do lots of stuff. so we atleast expect some decent stuff making use of M+ around spring time
yeah, sidar tell them!
It's like pushing someone out of the way of a bus that isn't even going to be there for ten minutes.
Why do that when they can just focus on developing other games that makes money sooner, than implement an accessory that Nintendo should have game out with since the Wii's inception. And you know there's something wrong when they come out with something like Wii Music.
" than implement an accessory that Nintendo should have game out with since the Wii's inception. " They should have but if you do some research you can see it was not possible with the current design and it would have been EXPENSIVE.
The ailive guys are behind the SDK and they are claiming you can mapped animations to the players movements which is going to be sweet! This attachment is going to take the guess work out of getting motion controls right also. I would be even better if Ailvie made that motion controller online sword fighting demo into a real game also. Seriously this is the new FX chip. I don't blame nintendo keep it a secret because had SONY and MS known about this they might have tried to do the same. Then MS would not have bought FF13 and Sony would have had a demo of kratos motion controlled. The fastest impact you can make is to make some Wiiware games for it also. I'm not sure how many are using Ailive controller tech though most guys are in house. The conduit guys are going to have Wiispeak in their game and since they are really cool guys I'm sure Motion+ is on the cards and would rock so much! Wouldn't it be cool if nintendo was actually helping the conduit guys? If that game does have motion+ support I wouldn't be surprised. Hell imagine res evil with motion plus! This attachment is going to be big.
wow just wow
i like that picture? is it real?? or photoshoped??
it's hilarious. The expression of the dog is hilarious.
It's 100% real.
Since the dawn of the Wii and Nintendo's ground breaking Wii-mote Gamers have been desperate for that one amazing experience: To wield the remote like a lightsaber from Star Wars. So what we all want to know is: Will Force Unleashed use the Motion Plus for true 1:1 motion lightsaber battles or will it continue to use the gimped swipe and translation motions that it has already shown in previews?
This should have been in the controller day one. Now it will either make the old controller obsolete or 3rd party developers won't utilize it. Either way gamers get shafted.
Nintendo annoying and betraying developers? This is so not like them.
Nintendo could've told the third party developers about Wii Motion Plus months before E3, but that would risk an early leak. At least the third-party developers have months to create games around Wii Motion Plus. They're lucky that nintendo didn't wait to announce it until just before release.
They're lucky? I think Nintendo is lucky that they managed to get the news out this early. 3rd party developers have two other choices (not including the PC) to develop for. It would make absolutely no sense for Nintendo to be like "Surprise! New controller on the market tomorrow!"
Bubble to you man for that comment 3rd parties are lucky. Nintendo could have came out with Wii sport hunting lodge and crushed every FPS 3 months before it's release but they gave fair warning. This thing is actualy going to make Wii mote controls less of an headache to make. This is why you saw so much waggle. So many games could be remade with this add on but a leak would have changed the face of gaming. lots of people are complaining right now for what ever reason but with MS in the industry they have to play this way. People still blame factor 5 for the PS3 sixaxis copy and lots of rumors where out their about lots of copy cat things coming. If you think HD development is outrageous now just add motion controls to that head ache. If nintendo did business the way gamer's think they would be with sega. Your partners are suppose to help. At this level trusting people is naive.
