this one?

It sounds okay, but as Spooky said I'd rather see more come out for the existing hardware. I'll prolly hit up the local video shop to try it out first before forking over the bucks for it.

My mum bought it a little while ago but she hasn't opened it up yet. I'm visiting the olds tonight for dinner so I'll give it a crack then. Looks alright from the ads

I'm curious about the benefits of the Wii MotionPlus more than anything. I've probably spent more time with Wii Tennis than any other game on Wii so this will be intersting.

Played it last night. I was really impressed with the sword fighting, the motion was pretty much one-to-one. The ping-pong was pretty cool, it was easy to put spin on the ball with a small flick of the wrist. I think the motion+ has pretty good potential, it is pretty much what I imagined when I first heard of the motion controls.

edit: Big W has extra MotionPlus controllers for $26 at the moment. Better price than EB.

Yeah, my brother is coming down here for a holiday in a couple of weeks, was going to buy it then and give it a bash. I'm really interested to see how the motion plus performs too. The Wii might actually be able to now deliver on the promises Nintendo made back when they first unveiled it.

Each controller requires the motion plus to play, but most of the games are hotseat not real multiplayer

mmhmm, the motion+ is what I thought the original was going to be like. So now it better perform.

I liked playing Tiger Woods on the Wii, all the time I was thinking, damn the motion+ would be made for golf games.

best way to get wii sports resort = get 2 pre-owned games from EBgames that aren't on the exclusion list at JBHFI (around $20 each). Take them to JBHIFI and trade the games for wii sports resort... bingo

What Jabroney said. Of course if you didn't do it by today, then you'll pay a touch more. I scored Resort + a 2nd Motion Plus for $67 total doing the "buy two crappy games from EB, then trade at JB". Win win.

Played it at my mums yesterday. I liked the sword fighting and the frisbee but I started to try the wake boarding one and it didn't seem to react to my movements so I think I was doing it wrong :( I'll give it another bash and try some of the other games next time I'm at my olds

Raider - The Wii MotionPlus contains a gyroscope that works with the accelerometer in the Wii Remote. Not exactly something you could give away free.

Yea, it's an extra attachment that plugs into your remotes so you need to buy one for each remote that you have in order to play multiplayer - otherwise you have to take turns
