It’s been two weeks since I posted the news letting you all know about the contest we’d be hosting and now it has come to a close. The winner will most likely be posted next weekend – I need some time to look over all of the comments that were posted and count up the scores.

I want to give a huge “thank you” to all of you though. Moreover, I must say that I am greatly appreciative to those who posted a comment over the past two weeks, including those who weren’t participating in the contest and simply felt like adding to the discussions. I do hope that this continues in the future and I also hope that more of you guys can join in, as I’ve definitely felt as though the site was very lively over the past few weeks. A comment here and there from anyone can go a long way, even if it’s not for every news post or update!

Peter Moore on Wii MotionPlus

Posted 11 years ago by in News, Wii | 6 Comments

“I certainly played Tennis a lot up in Vancouver with the Wii Motion Dongle attached and in simplistic terms if you think about the normal movement you get with the Wii remote, you know you can sit on your couch and flick your wrist and you get the same reaction as if you stand up and do a full swing playing golf or tennis. What the Wii Motion plus allows you to do is do a true authentic sports motion. When you swing the racquet and you bring it back for an overhead lob or smash, then that is reflected. The amount of sensitivity that now brings allows true sports motion. It’s the same with golf. What you can do with Wii Motion Plus is truly bring it back, swing through the club and then it allows you to hit draws, fades and hooks. The really astute golfer can address the ball as he or she would in a real golf game. While the game will play as well as any other game with the current Wii remote, when you get it with the motion plus device, it becomes spectacular. I’ve hit spins, lobs and drop shots playing Tennis in Vancouver.” – Peter Moore

MotionPlus is definitely one of the best things to happen to the Wii…And it sounds like Peter Moore is a fan as well. MotionPlus will not only help precision in Grand Slam Tennis, but Tiger Woods as well.

Thanks to A P. A P for the news tip.

More Wi-Fi aspects of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars are now available, thanks to the latest Nintendo Power. Rockstar will be hosting competitions for prizes through the Rockstar Social Club. Players can access competitions via an in-game PC. Some competitions will focus around game-completion percentages while others will be based on how well missions have been completed.

Aside from competitions, Chinatown Wars will also allow players who have registered each others Friend Codes to exchange messages with each other in real time. Furthermore, it has been reconfirmed that friends can trade items and favorite locations that have been marked on the GPS.
