I was a little underwhelmed at this year's E3 when Nintendo whipped out the MotionPlus attachment for the Wiimote, not because the idea isn't cool, but it seemed to me that the Wiimote should have been made with this technology built in instead of as a secondary device we would have to plug in. Isn't motion controlled movement what the Wii is supposed to offer anyway?
Nick Haggar, the producer behind "De Blob", shared somewhat similar thoughts with MTV Multiplayer last week. From the phone interview:
While I might be grumpypants over the idea that I have to plug something into the Wiimote for the ultimate motion experience, I can't say I would exactly describe it as complex to plug something into the base to make it work. Of course, I've been fiddling with game accessories for twenty years now, so it may seem easy to me but overly complex to others. What do you think?
