Gaming firms eyeing up MotionPlus

Developer talks of interested parties

Build a business case: developing custom apps

The company behind the Wii’s MotionPlus has hinted that the add-on’s technology could soon be adopted by rival gaming firms.

According to a report by Eurogamer, manufacturer InvenSense has said that its relationship with Nintendo over MotionPlus’ technology isn’t exclusive.

Joe Virginia, Vice President of Wireless Business and Corporate Communications at InvenSense, said that other unnamed firms are interested in MotionPlus’ technology, but, unsurprisingly, he hasn’t named names.

"I can't get into details about other folks that are interested in this technology, but as you might imagine of course there is more interest out there,” Virginia said.

Nintendo hasn’t confirmed when or where MotionPlus will appear first, except for the fact it’ll be reasonably cheap. But the game’s expected to be bundled with a sports title called Wii Sports Resort, in addition to being sold separately.
