    Rumor: Europe not getting a Wii price cut but rather a MotionPlus bundle pack

    The Wii is getting cut down to $199 this Sunday. We know that. But European gamers might not be that lucky. GamesIndustry.biz is reporting that instead of getting a price cut, Nintendo will bundle MotionPlus along with Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort and sell it for the same price. Actually, that’s not that bad as MotionPlus really does improve the gaming experience and every Wii… Read More

It doesn’t matter. Go grab your Wii controllers, MotionPlus add-on, and watch the video after the jump closely. Remember, you can always play the video again if you didn’t get it the… Read More

  • Video: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10's Disc Golf feature

    New to Tiger Woods PGA Tour on the Wii this year is the “Disc Golf” feature, which allows you to play all of the in-game courses as a disc golfer. I figured it’d be gimmicky at best. Well, I was wrong. It’s fun, and it’s a great use of the MotionPlus add-on. If you’ve ever played disc golf before, you’ll probably enjoy playing it in the game. If… Read More

    Looks like the Wii MotionPlus add-on will indeed be shipping this June — June 8th to be exact — as Amazon is currently taking pre-orders.

Right, bundle it with a popular video game, like Nintendo did with the Rumble Pak and Star Fox 64 nearly 12 years ago. (God, 12 years!) Now EA is helping to ensure that the Wii MotionPlus isn’t a huge bust by shipping it with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10. The game comes out this summer, but no North… Read More

    Wii Sports Resort in June – that means MotionPlus in June


    According to this astonishingly brief article, Nintendo has announced that Wii Sports Resort is definitely coming out in June (in Japan at least, US in July) — which suggests the hotly anticipated MotionPlus accessory will be coming out too. That’s about what we expected; hopefully they’ve worked out the hiccups. To be honest, though, I couldn’t care less about the… Read More

    Nintendo says MotionPlus is NOT delayed

    There are two truths in this world; you can’t triple stamp a double stamp, and a product can’t be delayed if a release date was never set for it. Nintendo is leveraging the no-release-date argument amidst recent rumors that the Wii MotionPlus peripheral may be delayed. Read More

    According to a kind of shaky trail of evidence, it looks like Wii’s much-awaited MotionPlus accessory will be coming out ahead of Grand Slam Tennis, which itself is slated for June 18th.

    Wii version of ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10’ to feature MotionPlus

    If you’re like me, you’ve been a longtime fan of the Tiger Woods games on the Wii but you were disappointed with Tiger Woods 09’s mere incremental upgrades and overly frustrating putting system. If you’re not like me, you probably yelled at me for being down on the game, accusing me of never playing golf in real life and wondering why-oh-why anyone would pay me to… Read More

    Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus enhances Wiimote sensitivity


    Nintendo’s going to be demoing this tomorrow, but it’s worth mentioning today. The MotionPlus accessory attaches to the port on your WiiMote and “allows for more comprehensive tracking of a player’s arm position and orientation.” Sounds good to me; I’m guessing it’s basically another set of accelerometers and such that work in concert with the… Read More
