    Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus add-on makes the Wii Remote a true 1:1 motion controller - Engadget

    Finally. This makes the Wii a bit more useful, as the Sensors in the Wiimote really failed.

    Do you even own a Wii? Controllers feel fine to me. I would hardly call them "fail".

    No, but I have played one on several occasions. Granted that was limited to Wii Sports. However I was extremely surprised that you could easily abuse the controls and just basically flick your wrist and easily throw a baseball really hard, or swing the bat with power etc.

    I have played several Wii's, including my own, and they really are fail. They aren't "polished" enough for a true gaming experience. Yeah, they are fun to use, but they aren't terribly accurate, especially over a period of time. Furthermore, it just doesn't sense your swings very well (especially in golf and such).

    Fable 2; If you and your friend are both in the same town in the game playing single player, you'll see one another as floating orbs. If you go up to them you can join seamlessly in co-op.

    WOW!
