I really didn't know that the accessoryy provided 1:1 movement. Once I did more research I became happy about the Wii again. I hope the next Zelda uses this tech.

It does look quite nice. The technology existed all along, but it was a lot more expensive three years ago.

Cheap is comparative. The motion plus hardware is noticably more expensive than what went into the wiimote -- and was more so three or four years ago.

What are you saying? There is no end to innovation. I am sure they still have many ideas about how to change the industry and what they should implement.
