Nintendo puts out dual Wii MotionPlus bundle

updated 07:35 am EDT, Fri September 25, 2009

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.

    Good Move

    Great move on Nintendo's part, making a bundle like this will generate buzz and will keep the WIi in people's mouths come this holiday spending season. Putting a second MotionPlus is ideal to get the most fun out of this title, what Nintendo needs to do is more grassroots promotions the way Microsoft does. Like this online promotion for a Free Wii, check the link for info, Nintendo should do this for individual games and get a buzz going. That's how Microsoft makes MEDIOCRE games and ends up with huge sales!
