Motion Plus Extension for Wiimote

motion.jpg
One of the things the Wiimote can't do that the Sixaxis can is measure rotation around the horizontal axis, or "yaw". It's hard to imagine what else this rumored Motion Plus addon would do for the wiimote, so that's our bet. It's a gyroscope. It's likely intended to help with 1 to 1 motion for sword fighting, but we'll see what they have in mind. I doubt they'd put this out at E3 without some sort of game or demo to show you what advantages it brings. I expect to see it as a pack-in with a Star Wars game personally.

I can't quite tell from the image if there is a pass-through for the nunchuck or not. What do you think?
