Wii Sports Resort and Wii MotionPlus enabled controllers.

I picked up Wii Sports Resort for the kids Sunday. They seem to enjoy it, but I have not had time to give some of the new games a try myself. Curiously enough, the game requires you have use the Wii MotionPlus accessory if you are going to have concurrent multiplayer gaming sessions.

If you only have the bundled Wii MotionPlus controller adaptor, multiple player gaming is limited to turn based gaming (you first, then me, then you, etc). I did not check things out to see if that was actually the case, so it is possible that my kids swindled me into ordering another Wii MotionPlus accessory from Amazon, which will arrive today.

I hope to have some time later this week to see how the games play. I am looking forward to basketball, archery (because that seems cool), and to compare how the new bowling game plays vs. HVA (PS3). I know that Wii Sports Resort is just a bunch of mini games, but much like Wii Sports my wife is already playing this one with the kids. I have childhood memories of my dad playing some Colecovision games with us, and my step father playing the various Intellivision sports games, but my mother never stepped up to the TV. Strong days indeed that my wife plays the Wii. Casual gaming has truly arrived.
