Motion Plus finally gets a date

Posted by Renato Velarde

The slippery release date of WiiMotion plus has firmed up as a pack-in title

Since the announcement of Wii motion plus at E3 2008, it was slated to pack in with the eagerly awaited WiiSports Resort. That was supposed to be this spring, and wait... it's spring right now.

One delay after another has left us all wondering, but it seems it's not the add-on that's holding things up because now it's slated for release July 2nd with EA's Grand Slam Tennis for €59.99 or €49.99 without the accessory. Other games expected to utilize Motion Plus soon include Red Steel 2, Tiger Woods 2010 and Virtua Tennis.

The add-on connects to the base of the Wii Remote and offers 1:1 motion tracking for increased sensitivity and accuracy with motion based games. This could also mean Wii Sports Resort may not be far behind. Keep hope alive.

Cool, but I thought Wii Motion Plus was supposed to come with Wii Sports Resort. Hopefully that hasn't changed.

I wish Wii Sports Resort would hurry up and come out. I've been anxiously awaiting that one for some time now.

Are they going to sell it separately at the same time? I can imagine there would be people wanting the golf game but not the tennis game...



Terra said:

I remember hearing somewhere (1UP I think it was) that it will be sold seperately and Iwata also said it would be sold quite cheap. Will those Extended Wiimote covers come with them or will we have to order online like we did for when they introduced the protective covers?

I was never a big fan of the rubber condoms that go on the Wiimotes. I don't use protection when handling my Wii. But yes, can't wait for motion-plus; however I haven't seen any games I'd really be interested in yet.

Finally - been waiting for some more news on this for ages now. No doubt the full list of available sports will be unveiled at E3 this June.

@Terranigma: They will come in the box
