Within it’s V.Smile-product range, the electronic conglomerate VTech released the V.Smile Motion in 2008. This system sets itself apart from the usual V.Smiles system with motion controls and it’s own games. As the name suggest, the joypad is motion sensitive. Although special games for this new method of control were released, the V.Smile Motion is fully compatible to all old V.Smile games. Surprisingly, the new V.Smile Motion games can also be played on the older, non-motion hardware, although with limited functions due to the missing motion-controller.
