    Wii Sports Resort Release Date and Wii Fit Plus!!!

    http://www.joystiq.com/2009/04/04/ru...otionplus-rev/

    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?

    Reggie claims they've pushed the accuracy of MotionPlus even further which would explain the delay.

    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.

    Yes, it would be cool, but I'll bet developers will say, "It is too hard, we don't want to scare off the casuals!" and treat them like they are babies. Take TW09 for example, they said that it would have a 1:1 swing, but it didn't really. I was expecting it to be at least somewhat realistic to real golf, but it wasn't at all. And I think TW10 will be the same. And all-play was such a stupid idea. I swear, sometimes developers get casual gamers confused with mentally-handicapped people. Sorry for the off-topicness, but this just makes me mad.

    If you check the reviews and interviews for TW10, you'll see that they are really going for a true golf sim. Putting will be with a single putter, independent of distance. Big backswing and fast stroke = more distance. VERY accurate partial swings (e.g., bring the club back horizontal for consistent 30-40% strokes, etc.). It looks to be THE killer video golf game. (It's all about the swing--pushing buttons to swing canno come close, even with great graphics.)

    "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."
