Also, I'd like to say how hypocritical (or non-critical) you people are! Nintendo's basically saying that they released a ****tier version than what they had in mind, and are only now making amends............yet they want us to pay for it some how (even if it's packed in).

For more critical, and for some antagonistic comments, go here.

Anyone remember when the Wiimote/nuchuck was first unveiled? That there the connector was originally a little fatter, covering the the whole bottom part of the Wiimote? Maybe the nunhuck doubled up as an extended accelerometer, but just too expensive at the time, or they didn't want to tie it down to the nunchuck. Could be just the prototype design, nothing more, but still a strange coincidence...

I'll wait until to tomorrow until  I make my judgment. Without a price, release date, compatibility, there's not enough to bitch/praise on.  ;)

And thus, every E3 prediction was shot to hell.

You can bet your ass this is going to be packed-in with a game.  And man do I hope it's a new Mario Party.

I hope this is a joke because Mario Party is a multiplayer game, and thus a single unit would be fairly useless.  If so, +1.

Unless Silks is hoping to get 4 within the game like I am.  I think it within a new Mario Party game would be awesome.

Or Punch Out which will require two remotes to play having 4 packed in for multiplayer.

Besides, then we'd all have to buy one of those awful Mario Party games... Ew.

I would not be surprised if it does, I get the feeling this was in response to 3rd parties wanting more accuracy in the Wiimote.

This reminds me of the Wii name where it was dropped before E3 so people could actually focus on the content during the show.

that would mean that devs actually wanted to put effort into their games, so we all know this is wrong. guess again.

I hope Red Steel 2 supports it as well. I can't imagine it's going to cost much, (nunchuck is $20) so bundle it with a ton of games and sell it for $15?

If this means no nunchuk, then I'm not too excited.  Otherwise... some good may come of it.  It all depends on what 1:1 really means.

Why does everybody keep on talking about the nunchuk... There is a opening at the bottom!  I hope Nintendo announces that this will make older games work better.:)

I'm assuming this is how Nintendo aims to win back hardcore gamers; by adding functionality to what many developers consider a limiting controller. On top of that, how do you convince casual gamers that MotionPlus is better or worth how ever much it costs? I'd bet that Nintendo's thinking is that they don't have to. Casual gamers aren't complaing about the Wii, everyone else is. Still, I'm having a hard time justifying this. If the nunchuck plugs into the MotionPlus module (which it better or it's useless), then Nintendo just introduced the world's first $80+ 1st party controller. How can anyone be happy about that?

The problem with MotionPlus is the same problem with any peripheral: it's extra and who wants to pay extra? Additionally, Nintendo needs a major title to vindicate the add-on's existence. People have said Zelda, but the next Zelda would have to wow audiences more than Ocarina of Time to make a difference. Good luck with that. Packing in MotionPlus with Zelda like they packed the Wii Wheel with Mario Kart would certainly help, but Nintendo would have to sell the game at a loss or pass off the difference onto the consumer, both of which has its pros and cons. Ultimately, launching MotionPlus is risky though I suppose being risky is what made Nintendo relevant again.

Bundle it with Punch Out, Star Wars, and Red Steel 2. Sell it for $14.95 and and it will be at least as common as the zapper or the wheel or the Balance board.

I'd be really surprised to see MotionPlus sell for less than $20 (I expect higher). If the Wii Wheel, which does nothing except hold a Wii remote, costs $10, I don't expect MotionPlus being only $5 more.

How much is the nun-chuck?

$20 sounds about right.

If it's cheap enough to make I'd suggest bundling it with all Wiimotes and Wiis in the future, in addition to selling it individually.

The reason people arent immediately up in arms is that we don't know what it does, it might have been too expensive or unfeasible when the Wii was released and Nintendo didn't want to end up with a Blu-Ray style situation.
