Wii 2 motion-sensing is “better than Move”
Edge Magazine has been told by inside sources that the Wii 2′s controller senses motion more accurately than the PlayStation Move. They do not know whether a camera is part of the setup or not, but seeing the relative commercial success of Microsoft’s Kinect, I wouldn’t count out the possibility. In any case, assuming this one’s true, I think you can put your worries about the Wii 2′s controller being just another SIXAXIS to rest, as the Move and even Nintendo’s own MotionPlus are fairly accurate systems to begin with.
With regards to the camera, I just wanted to mention again that a previous report mentioned a front-facing camera on the controller. It may be a bit of a long shot, but what if that camera was actually a 3DS-style set of two, which together create a 3D image? The controller could then use that 3D feed to augment the data it already receives from accelerometers and gyroscopes, helping to improve its accuracy. What do you think?
