EA Sports announces its first two Wii games with MotionPlus compatibility

Electronic Arts has announced that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis, will be the first two titles from the EA Sports label to utilise Wii MotionPlus functionality.

MotionPlus was announced in July last year, and will reflect motions made by players quicker and more accurately in a 3D space.

This means that when gamers are playing PGA Tour 10, they will be able to experience a near-perfect 1:1 swing and control the ball better than ever before.

As for Grand Slam Tennis, making its debut on the Wii, players will benefit from a much more "authentic tennis experience", with the slightest move of the wrist affecting how you hit the ball.

Peter Moore, president, of EA Sports said: "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".

EA Sports has confirmed at least five new games will launch before the end of 2009, including EA Sports Active coming in May. However, it has not been confirmed that all of these will take advantage of the MotionPlus technology.
