Nintendo offers Wii Music sensation

Nintendo showed-off its really rather entertaining Wii Music title at E3, a game featuing gesture-controlled instruments.
Gesture controls mean that when you play a saxophone you hold the controller in the same way as you do a normal sax, play guitar and hold the controls another way – and the whole experience is based on gesture, no button-pushing is required.
Wii Music will feature 50 different instruments, including drums, piano, guitar, violin and saxophone. There’s no metronome, neither, the experience is dependent on your ability, and while the game doesn’t score your musical efforts, it does allow you to record them and also to make music videos featuring up to four players at once.
Here’s a video showing a player using Wii Music at E3 last night.
