Wii Sports Resort with 2 MotionPlus add-ons
Nintendo added more fuel to its Wii price cut on Friday by promising a special version of its Wii Sports Resort bundle with added hardware. The Limited Edition pack adds a second MotionPlus peripheral and matching Wii remote jacket to give a second controller the extra precision in movement needed for this and other newer Wii games. The new bundle helps players get started in an already multiplayer-focused game.
The special-run title should cost $60, or about $10 less than it would take to buy the second MotionPlus along with the existing bundle. Nintendo expects it to ship on October 12th and cautions that it will only sell "while supplies last," though it doesn't give an estimate as to how long that might be.
