MotionPlus tech not exclusive to Nintendo

Ben Parfitt
Just weeks after Nintendo lifted the lid on its hardware-based accuracy boost for its WiiMote, the company behind the add-on has stated that Nintendo has not exclusively licensed the technology.

InvenSense’s Joe Virginia told Eurogamer that: “Of course we're incredibly pleased – delighted would probably be a better adjective – that Nintendo approached us, but it's not an exclusive relationship.

“I can't get into details about other folks that are interested in this technology, but as you might imagine of course there is more interest out there.

“I really think we've just begun to scratch the surface, gaming is a huge application. But if you think of where motions and where motion-sensing can be applied then there are so many applications; this is a great time to be in the business.”
