Nintendo Wii MotionPlus 2

Nintendo at E3 today expanded on yesterday's unveiling of the Wii MotionPlus. The add-on device for the Wii Remote uses a built-in spatial sensor that allows for very precise swings, twists, and rotation: a sword swing can be reflected exactly onscreen, while holding the Remote sideways gives players the ability to twist the throttle in a jet ski game or toss a Frisbee as well as they can in real life.

Nintendo still declines to mention price but expects to release the Wii MotionPlus soon along with a matching jacket to prevent damage from accidental tosses; it will be paired up with the launch of the multi mini-game Wii Sports Resort software and should be getting support from third-party games as well.
