Nintendo has now confirmed that Wii Sports Resort and Wii Motion Plus will be out in July. No specific date or price announced yet.
In Amsterdam Wii Sports Resort is supposedly out July 10
and a game called Wii Fit Plus out in November this year! I bet it uses Wii Motion Plus. Wii Body Coaching seems interesting too.
So much for a Spring release date eh? I was hoping to use Motion Plus for Tiger Woods 2010 and Grand Slam Tennis in June. I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer eh?
Also EA says it's so accurate it could impair our virtual performance, meaning if you play a tennis game you'll actually have to be as good as a tennis athlete(YESS!!!!!!!) I used to dream of this stuff as a little boy!!
Unfortunately a lot of developers are gonna tone down the controls so that anyone could be good. I think they should include a "hardcore" mode where you have to go through the motions how you would in real life.
In 2007 I predicted Wii Fit would sell more than Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
EVERYONE at wiichat.com disagreed with me.
As it stands today:
Super Smash Bros. Brawl: 9.49 Million
Wii Fit: 35 Million
Yeah, Nintendo sucks unbelievably bad when it comes to release dates.

Yet now Amazon has a listing for the Wii MotionPlus at $19.99 and releasing on June 8th. We'll see how long this link works...
Now I see that this has been officially announced:

"Nintendo's given a firm release date to Wii MotionPlus, with the add-on hitting European stores on June 12, with the US getting the peripheral on June 8.
Wii Sports Resort, the first in-house effort to support MotionPlus, will be launching sometime afterwards on July 24 (July 26 in the US) – although SEGA's Virtua Tennis 2009 supports the peripheral and will be available upon the release of MotionPlus.
MotionPlus is to cost $19.99 in the US and $49.99 when bundled with Wii Sports Resort, although there are no pricing details for Europe at the time of writing."
Thank God WiiChat is back! It's more addictive then Crack on Toast!
