Nyko Announces New Wii Wand+ Controller at CES -1.052010-01-07 15:01:58Maura S

Peripherals manufacturer Nyko Technologies has today announced several new products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, one of which is what Nyko claims to be “the most advanced and user-friendly controller on the market for the Wii.” The Wand + features Full Motion Technology built directly into the controller, enabling full 1:1 movement tracking that is compatible with all games utilizing the Wii Motion Plus attachment. Nyko says that by having the Full Motion Technology already built into the controller, it avoids some of the irritations than can occur when using dongles and add-ons, such as incompatibility with docks and other accessories, and the need for custom sleeves. The Wand+ also features Nyko’s award-winning Trans-Port Technology, which enables key action buttons to be digitally replicated on other devices and pass sound and vibration signals to attached peripherals for the ultimate immersive gameplay experience.

If you like how all that sounds and fancy picking one up, the Wand+ will be available at select retail stores nationwide in March 2010 for an MSRP of $39.99.
