Wii Sports Resort and MotionPlus coming out in…June?

MTV Multiplayer blog backed the Nintendo of America president into a corner (is that even possible?) and unintentionally managed to give us a semi-clear time frame.

Is this project not going where it needs to be going?

Fils-Aime: We do not comment on rumor and speculation.

Boy, Reggie…I hope you don’t play poker with that face. The short interview goes on to discuss the MotionPlus peripheral and what Reggie thinks of the latest build he played two weeks ago.
