Click to viewThe Nintendo Wii broke my heart. It wooed me with cute, clever marketing and the promise of unbelievable technology. But it was a scam, a hoax, a hoodwink. The Wii's main revolutionary component, the Wiimote, did not work nearly as well as a many of us expected (like when swinging a golf club in WiiSports or a sword in Red Steel). And that was a real blow, because there was no one more excited about the system than me.
So after trying out Wii MotionPlus today, an add-on that brings the Wiimote "more comprehensive tracking" and 1:1 response, I was left with mixed feelings. On one hand, Nintendo finally delivered everything I ever wanted in the Wiimote. On the other, it was two years late, and as Jason pointed out, not making the system any cheaper.
