Nintendo Screws Third-Party Developers

Remember the Wii MotionPlus, the gimmicky accessory that attaches to the end of the Wiimote to “more quickly and accurately reflect motions in a 3-D space?” It turns out Nintendo is getting some bad recognition regarding their lack of disclosure involving the accessory and third-party developers.

When third-party developers were asked of their opinions of the accessory, they all seemed to have the same answer. Responses showed feelings of annoyance and betrayal as developers claimed Nintendo simply withheld the information about the MotionPlus’ existence, prior to it being revealed last Monday. In other words, don’t expect third-party releases supporting the peripheral any time soon. God, Nintendo, I don’t care if the Wii Fit is good for something,  you’re still a company full of major assholes.
