Wii add-on might help disc sports

Yesterday in Los Angeles Nintendo unveiled a new add-on for the Wii remote. A small accessory, called the Wii MotionPlus, plugs into the base of the Wii remote to more accurately sense subtle movements such as the twist of a wrist, Nintendo said in a demonstration of a game involving the tossing of a virtual Frisbee.
The Wii already has one disc game. In Big Beach there is a disc golf game that actually allows three ways to throw the disc: backhand, forehand and hammer. Hammer is the coolest one, obviously, but whichever you way you decide to flick the Remote, your avatar will mimic your motion and it’ll all affect where the Frisbee goes.
Perhaps we will eventually see a full (Beach) Ultimate game developed. Wouldn’t that be cool?!
