E3 2008: 1UP Sits Down for a Chat with Shigeru Miyamoto

Gaming Today

I’ve yet to speak with anyone who didn’t find Nintendo’s press briefing earlier this week to be a disappointment, but there were still several noteworthy things in there, such as the Motion Plus. Over on 1UP, you can check out an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and Katsuya Eguchi, who is the director of Animal Crossing: City Folk.

Regarding Wii Sports Resort, Miyamoto confirmed that the game will require the Wii Motion Plus. That equates to a very pricey experience if you intend on playing multiplayer, since you’ll need to buy those second, third and fourth Motion Plus add-ons individually. Nintendo has yet to reveal pricing on the unit, but even at $10 – $20, you’re looking at a lot of money for a four-player session of Wii Sports Resort.

1UP also asked about the storage problems that Wii owners are having (you know, that one only hardcore gamers care about) and while they wouldn’t go into any specifics, Miyamoto did say, “We could potentially announce something in the near future.”
