Many people have been spreading rumors that The Conduit will support MotionPlus. Well, High Voltage CEO Eric Nofsinger cleared up that confusion in a recent interview.
When asked about the accessory’s inclusion, Nofsinger said, “Not for this version.”
Some find the wording of this denial, “this version”, to be an unusual choice of words, and think that it might point to multiple versions of The Conduit or The Conduit 2.
Past reports did indeed state that High Voltage was working with MotionPlus, but support for the add-on was dropped later in development.
Personally, I see no use for MotionPlus in a shooter game. I don’t know how many gamers realize this, but MotionPlus only enhances the motion tracking of the Wii Remote, not the pointer tracking.
The Conduit, slated for release on June 9 2009, will utilize WiiSpeak for its sixteen-player online multiplayer.
