Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Has nintendo abandoned motion control's with WiiU?

Is it just me or did nintendo just went backward on all they tried to do with the controls for wii. Now hear me out the controller is something we never saw in videogames before but it doesn't improve anything that the wii brought with motion controls. You might want to say that wiiU is backward compatible with the wiimote and motion plus but think about motion+ has been around for nearly 2 years and there are only a handfull of games that utilize it, and even less that use it properly. Forward to wiiU and who is to say that 3rd patry developers would start using it now, when they can easily just use the dual analog scheme which they use on ps3/360 and that would make porting of games even easier for them, and it doesn't help also that the wiimote(+) would now be like a secondary controller rather than primary one which even more of an excuse to not develop for it.

I prefer the motion controller to be an option rather than a requirement for the developers.  Having to make your game fit the control schemes offered by such devices creates too many constraints.  Now, with the Wii U, the devs have options rather than requirements.




The Wii controllers will work with the WiiU. Usiage of the controllers will depend on the game. Nintendo isn't doing things for their own sake. Motion control was to make gaming more accessible. Now they are trying to do other things with the WiiU Pad.



Well you have to use wii remotes to play multplayer. It can be used like the gamecube remotes but are way more important. But what I like about this is I can use my four wii motes and use them on my wii u. That's epicly awesome and if we can use them without the tablet it's now more awesome.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

I agree that Nintendo need to improve motion controls, but now is not the time for that, they have a higher priority on their hands, and that's to continue to differentiate and bring new experiences to the industry, as well as tackle the smartphone competition. Without a tablet they can't directly compete with games like angry birds because they only make games on Nintendo consoles. The 3DS could compete, but Nintendo also has to compete with tablets, not just smartphones.

So there's your answer. They should, but just not right now, and M+ can fill the need in the meantime, most solutions for M+ are programmatic at the moment, and a HW revision can come later.
