E3 2008: Day 2 update

Following with series of the E3 2008 updates, lets kick things off with some good news for Wii fans. Nintendo is coming up with there own musical game called Wii Music that is not rhythmic or tough as compared to Guitar Hero or Rock Band.

Music offers virtually endless ways to make music. You choose the song and instruments and decide whether to blaze through a rock take on classical songs, put a jazzy spin on folk tunes or transform Nintendo classics like the Super Mario Bros. theme into Latin-flavoured numbers. The song list is only a takeoff point – it’s how you improvise with the songs that matters.


Nintendo is also coming up with an accessory for the Wiimote called the Wii MotionPlus that’s guaranteed to increase accuracy.

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.

God Of War 3

Some new for the Call Of Duty fans too. Kiefer Sutherland ( best known for his role Jack Bauer in TV Series ‘24’) is going to lend his voice to Call Of Duty : World At War. But no idea which character he will voice.

    Boy did it seem that Nintendo was impressed with the MotionPlus. I really didn’t see what it offered over the current Wiimote and it seems that Engadget has the same opinion and they actually played with the thing.
