Wii Sports Resort with Motion Plus

Wii Motion Plus Accessory

The Wii MotionPlus accessory plugs into the bottom of the Wii Remote and enhances the motion controller’s functionality; created by Nintendo to take the game to the next level. A level that Microsoft and Sony seem to have surpassed. Wii Motion Plus rotates at the same angles as your arm. It is very precise.

If you have anticipated a corresponding 100% 1:1 move, you may be a little disappointed. Some games work better than others and there are many reasons. In real-time rendering, any missing or mismapped hand movements must be processed, the result is that some characters and movements appear jumpy.

To those Wii Sports tennis fans. EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis is much more in depth, with many more game modes, plus an improved rating system, prizes, online play and of course MotionPlus controls. Other fields of players are not so willing to spend their money (£15-£19) to buy MotionPlus, instead only choosing Grand Slam Tennis. Many Wii owners are looking forward to Wii Sports Resort, the second Wii Sports title to include Motion Plus.
