Like the title states, I'm wondering since the Wii Motion Plus really didn't have that many games that utilized it and did it well (Skyward Sword and Red Steel 2 are the only 2 games that come to mind), should and would Nintendo make all their future motion based games require the Wii Motion Plus? Many of the motion games before the Wii Motion Plus were basically just waggle controls. I wouldn't mind if the Wii U only used the Wii Motion Plus since when I get the Wii U, I'll be returning the Wii in my room to my dad (and the only WiiMote that's mine is the Zelda Wii Motion Plus). For a piece of hardware that really didn't get much time to shine, the Wii U should be the perfect platform to not only continue to revolutionize gaming, but perfect motion gaming. When you think about it, the Wii Motion Plus is pretty much the cheapest, easiest to use and most accurate of the 3 motion based controllers.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

The thing with the Move is that it requires the camera, you have to stand in front of it and all that jazz. The set up for the Move and Kinect are far more tedious than the Wii Motion Plus. Place the WiiMote on a flat surface for a couple of seconds and you're all set, doesn't matter the area you're in which makes it far more appealing than the other two. I own a Kinect and almost never play it because of the amount of set up it requires (too much crap in my house makes for little space :P)

It totally should. Get rid of all the negative opinions people have about the Wii. ^_^ Like how it'll now have better 3rd party support, it should also do away with waggle.

The other problem with the Move is that it's a pain to re-calibrate. You have to:
1. Point the controller at the camera and press the Move button
2. Raise your arm at your shoulder, press the Move button again
3. Put your arm down at your side, press the Move button again
4. Hold the controller at your waist, press the Move button again

That's 3 steps too many. You'd think that simply pointing the controller at the camera would calibrate it properly, but NO.

I still don't get why so many people seem to downplay Wii Sports Resort. As we have been told by Nintendo's head honchos, that game made possible the swordfighting in Skyward Sword, while other activities like Table Tennis are very well implemented.

Anyway, since all the new wiimotes are Wiimote plus, there is no need for Nintendo to go back to the original design, specially when it is a lot less accurate than the PS Move.

An interesting question would be how many new games would use the Wiimote instead of the tablet, or if the Wii U will include a Wiimote and a nunchuck in addition to its default controller.

I will comment in this thread, never being able to find it again.

Also, I hear this complaint often, there aren't any good games for the Kinect. Like, apparently there's been a dry spell since its release.

You could say the same thing about the PS Move, but Sony and a few 3rd-party companies are implementing the Move's pointer controls in their FPS games.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has suggested that the next Nintendo home console, the Nintendo Wii U, will only support Wii Remotes with the MotionPlus attachment.

Currently, consumers can either pick up a MotionPlas add-on for the original Wii Remote or purchase a controller with it already integrated.

Shigeru Miyamoto said on Iwata Asks: "Right now I'm planning that people can still be able to use their Wii Remote controllers that they already have, which means this time you now have five controllers to play with."

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata clarified: "You mean this new controller and four Wii Remote Plus controllers for a total of five".

Miyamoto went on to say that although "people play in many combinations", he feels "like the Wii Remote has pretty much become its ideal form with the Wii Remote Plus".

Not sure what you mean. You asked for the source of the quote PvtMatata posted. It's on page 5 of that Iwata Asks ("Wii U and The Wii Remote").

Anyway, you're welcome.
