Snakebyte Premium Remote XL + Controller for Wii with MotionPlus built in

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2010

If you like the added control you get with the Wii when you are playing a game that uses MotionPlus, but hate that the accessory for MotionPlus adds extra length and weight to the Nintendo controller, then check this out.

Sure, Nintendo is integrating MotionPlus into controllers now, but maybe you prefer third-party controllers. Well, this one is from Sunflex and is called the Snakebyte Premium Remote XL+ Controller for Wii with MotionPlus. The controller comes in white or black and features a speaker, vibration feedback, and integrated memory to save settings.

Nyko Wand + has MotionPlus built in

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 8th, 2010

Last year Nyko introduced the Wand, their version of the Wiimote. This year they update it, outdoing Nintendo by incorporating Wii MotionPlus technology into one single controller. That’s what Nintendo gets for being slow.

I’m glad I didn’t buy one of those MotionPlus accessories. Now I can get this and have a less bulky controller. The Wand + reduces the controller’s overall size and should give you a more comfortable gaming experience.

Black Wiimote, MotionPlus and Nunchuck coming November 16thLook what we have here. Nintendo is gearing up for the holidays, and now we have some black Wii gear with some price info and a November 16th release date. This black Wiimote comes with a MotionPlus add-on and retails for $50.

The black Nunchuck is available by itself for $20. Sadly though, there is still no news of a black Wii in the US to go with them. What’s up with that Nintendo? Maybe we will see it soon.

Wii Sports Resort bundle with two MotionPlus accessoriesThe latest news to hit us from the Tokyo Game Show is this new limited edition Wii Sport Resort bundle that comes with a pair of MotionPlus accessories. The bundle will arrive on October 12th for $60.

So you save $10 if you bought the $50 Sport Resort with MotionPlus and a second $20 MotionPlus separately. Not Earth shattering news, but it’s something from the big N. Wii Sports Resort has already sold more than 1.25 million units in the United States alone, so it’s the least they could do.

Wii MotionPlus selling good

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on July 19th, 2009

Nintendo's MotionPlus due out prior to June 18thThe MotionPlus may have taken a full year to arrive on the scene, but now that it’s here it’s doing pretty well. Overall video game sales dropped in June for the first time since 2000, but Nintendo can’t complain. 361,700 Wii consoles and 766,500 DS units shipped in June, but the big surprise is that the company also managed to sell 169,000 Wii MotionPlus units.

That’s not including the bundled ones like the one packaged with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (that sold 272,400 units). Plus you have to take into account that Wii Sports Resort has yet to be released.

sakar-sbWhen the Wii first launched it didn’t take long for a myriad of accessories to spring up for the console. You could get swords, shields, and sports equipment made of foam or plastic to slip your controllers into for more realism.

tigerwoods10-sbWhen I first got my Wii I spent lots of time playing Wii Sports golf. I got good at the game and decided that I wanted a better challenge and picked up one of the Tiger Woods games, which was much more complicated, but lots of fun.

EA has announced that it is moving the launch date for the next Tiger Woods gamed called Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10. The launch date has been moved up by one week to June 8 for the golf game and the Grand Slam Tennis for Wii will be launched at the same time.

Nintendo's MotionPlus due out prior to June 18thLooks like the rumors were pretty close. After months of silence, Nintendo has announced a date for US availability of its MotionPlus Wiimote accessory.

The device will cost you $19.99, or after until July 26th you can pick up the Wii Sports Resort for $49.99, which comes bundled with the accessory.

EA bundling Wii MotionPlus with tennis game in Europe?

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2009

EA bundling Wii MotionPlus with tennis game in Europe?We already gathered that Nintendo’s Wii MotionPlus controller add-on was somehow tied to the launch of EA’s Grand Slam Tennis game, but it now looks like the two may be not just swell pals, but bestest buddies. According to a listing over on Amazon.de, the add-on will be available in a bundle with the game (in Europe), which will cost you just over $70. It launches on July 2nd.

Joystiq speculates that the move could also be the excuse Nintendo has been looking for to delay its Wii Sports Resort game, which was supposed to come bundled with MotionPlus.

Nintendo’s MotionPlus due out prior to June 18th

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2009

Nintendo’s MotionPlus due out prior to June 18thSeems like it’s been forever since Nintendo announced the MotionPlus Wiimote add-on. Since July, we have waited and wondered when Nintendo would release it. Well, at last we have some news.

According to EA Sports’ official Grand Slam Tennis page, that title will be available for the Wii on June 18th. A recent Nintendo Power article about the game, has producer Thomas Singleton saying that the MotionPlus accessory is “due out prior to Grand Slam’s release.” So, by doing some simple math one can deduce that Nintendo should ship the MotionPlus add-on prior to June 18th. Are you stunned at our math abilities? I know I am.

Wii MotionPlus demoed in 3D, with lightsaber

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on July 30th, 2008


The company that worked with Nintendo on the MotionPlus controller add-on, has now released a video that demonstrates the capabilities of the new hardware using 3D tools called LiveMove2. Turns out that the 1:1 tracking is really 1:1. Also the response time is pretty instant.

Before you know it they’re playing with lightsabers and fighting off Seeker Drones, then tossing around a 3D dummy with the lightsaber. All in all a lot of fun. The end result is that this technology can map incredibly complex motions to even more specific commands then before. It’s pretty damn impressive.

Nintendo unveils Wii MotionPlus for the Wii Remote

Posted in Wii Accessories by Darrin Olson on July 14th, 2008

Nintendo Wii MotionPlus adapter for the Wiimote controllerNintendo today issued a press release to introduce an unexpected accessory to the Wii Remote controller, called Wii Motionplus. The new attachment is designed to give even more accurate responses to a players hand and arm motions and we hope will lead to a lightsaber game in the very near future. According to Nintendo, the new controller add-on connects to the bottom end of the Wii Remote and will do a better job of “reflecting motions in a 3-D space”.

The attachment works in conjunction with the existing accelerometer in the remote and the Wii Sensor bar to track the players hand and arm motions and give what Nintendo is calling a true 1:1 response, which is sure to be a welcome feature for those interested in first person shooter games or anything requiring a little more precision beyond shaking or waving the remote wildly. The Wii remote currently with the game console does a great job of sensing more general motions, twisting and waving but sometimes can be a little shaky with the direct pointing. The Wii MotionPlus is sure to be an improvement and open up the Wii to less frustrating times at games requiring more precision.
