To use motion control as I'm pretty sure everyone envisioned. It would require realistic physics to be used in all games. To manipulate a sword/bat/whatever freely in a 3d environment, the physics of its interactions with all the objects in that environment has to be simulated, the Wii wasn't upto this task. For 3rd person games, there would also need to be procedurally generated character animation.
Touch screen control, while not as obvious in its application (at least innovatively) does have the advantage of not being hardware intensive to implement.
Nintendo needs to be using its big franchises to point 3rd party developers in the right direction, with using the new pad.
