New Wii Remote Accessory Announced- Wii MotionPlus

Just 24 hours before their official press conference at E3, apparently Nintendo couldn't sit on their hands any longer for this one though.
According to a page ont their official website, the Wii will be getting 1:1, and we will finnally be able to reach the endless possibilities of the WiiMote(Star Wars, Zelda will benefit from this in particular).

Heres the clipping from that talks about it...

"Nintendo's upcoming Wii MotionPlus accessory for the revolutionary Wii Remote controller again redefines game control, by more quickly and accurately reflecting motions in a 3-D space. The Wii MotionPlus accessory attaches to the end of the Wii Remote and, combined with the accelerometer and the sensor bar, allows for more comprehensive tracking of a player’s arm position and orientation, providing players with an unmatched level of precision and immersion. Every slight movement players make with their wrist or arm is rendered identically in real time on the screen, providing a true 1:1 response in their game play. The Wii MotionPlus accessory reconfirms Nintendo’s commitment to making games intuitive and accessible for everyone. Nintendo will reveal more details about the Wii MotionPlus accessory and other topics Tuesday morning at its E3 media briefing."

I must say, Nintendo has jumped out to a fast start at E3 this year. This is great news, now those Star Wars lightsaber battles will be a ton of fun(it should be like you are really fighting with a lightsaber). And as long as it doesn't cost that much(I suppose I will need 4 of them), I will be getting these.
