Tiger, Tennis to use Wii MotionPlus

Could US June date suggest add-on's release?

Electronic Arts has announced that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis will be its first games to utilise Wii MotionPlus, and they'll be out in the US on 18th June this year.

Nintendo has yet to put a release date on the add-on that increases the sensitivity of the Wii remote - or on its own flagship MotionPlus title, Wii Sports Resort. This is the clearest indication yet that we'll see MotionPlus in the first half of the year.

"On the Wii, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis (previously known simply as EA Sports Tennis) bring the authentic motion and excitement of championship golf and tennis to life for fans of all ages and skill levels," said EA Sports president Peter Moore.

"With the new Wii MotionPlus, slicing a winner on Centre Court at Wimbledon or dropping an 8 iron pin high on No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass have never felt better. We couldn't be more excited about the dynamic new EA Sports experiences coming this year to the Wii."

Moore's all about the Wii. EA Sports has "at least" five games designed specifically for Nintendo's machine that are due out this year, including May's fitness title, EA Sports Active.
