Nintendo kept the Wii MotionPlus
a secret from everybody
for as long as possible, a move that resulted in grumbling
from certain third-party developers.
That hasn't diminshed enthusiasm for the tiny add-on, however. During an interview with Gamasutra, Ubisoft
Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat couldn't praise the MotionPlus enough (even though he admitted having some doubts at first), enthusing about how the peripheral would make gaming feel "seamless," and arguing that it could only lead to a more immersive experience. "It's one thing to have your brain interpolating what you're doing," gushed Mallat, "[but ] it's another thing to not need that interpolation work."
Elsewhere in the interview, Mallat expressed his view that Shaun White Snowboarding
was a "must-try" and described developing Dogz
as "psychologically very exciting." Hmm.
