Lucasarts Totally Pissed Over Wii MotionPlus

Illustration for article titled Lucasarts Totally Pissed Over Wii MotionPlus

When Nintendo announced MotionPlus for the Wii, who knew about it? Nintendo did. And that's it. They didn't tell a soul. Not even their beloved third-party publishing and development partners, who were understandably a little upset. Lucasarts are among those upset, and...oh, did I say upset? I meant to say totally pissed. Here are Lucasarts, supposedly working on the "ultimate lightsaber game" for the Wii, and they're kept in the dark over technology that could have turned a combat game with waggle into an actual ultimate lightsaber game? No wonder they're not happy! Nintendo Waves Off Third Parties [Game Informer Magazine, via NeoGAF]

@metaslugx: Clearly you aren't paying attention. Wii has more third party exclusives in development for it than 360 and PS3 have *combined*. It has 50 more exclusives than 360 has coming, and over 100 more exclusives than PS3 has.

Yeah, Nintendo annoyed people with this, but no more than Sony annoyed them with keeping SixAxis close to their chests or claiming rumble was "last gen" and "couldn't work in tandem with a motion controller", and certainly no more than the later inclusion of Dual Shock 3.

I'm really starting to lose respect for Kotaku. Clearly you guys are more about stirring the shit these days than you are about reporting *actual* news.
