Great - but don't buy this on its own
on 27 July 2009
The MotionPlus add-on expands the Wii by detecting rotational as well as straight-line motion - enabling new styles of gameplay. Games like Table Tennis and SwordPlay in Wii Sports Resort would not be possible without it. However, it makes no difference at all to games that were not specifically programmed to support it.
Therefore there's no reason to buy this on its own. I'd suggest getting Wii Sports Resort, which is brilliant and was programmed side-by-side with the development of the MotionPlus, and which comes bundled with a MotionPlus.
The main reason to buy one of these separately is for multi-player games on MotionPlus titles like Sports Resort. Simultaneous multi-player is impossible unless you have more than one MotionPlus.
