Nintendo has just announced that they'll be releasing a limited edition version of their best-selling Wii Sports Resort title that will come with two Wii MotionPlus Accessories for only $59.99.
You can check out the details of the offer in the official press release below.
Wii Sports Resort™ is all about getting multiple people involved in friendly sporting competitions. Starting Oct. 12, consumers will have even more incentive to get in on the fun when Nintendo releases a special, limited-edition bundle of the Wii Sports Resort game and not one but two Wii MotionPlus™ accessories, which bring enhanced precision to games.
The bundle will be available at a suggested retail price of $59.99. Typically, Wii Sports Resort comes with a single Wii MotionPlus unit at a suggested retail price of $49.99, and additional Wii MotionPlus units are available at a suggested retail price of $19.99.
“Shoppers are looking for value as we head into the holiday season, and this Wii Sports Resort bundle is a gift that players of all ages and experience levels can enjoy,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Best of all, it instantly gets multiple members of the household engaged in playing as soon as the package is opened.”
The new bundle will be available while supplies last at most major retailers.
Through the end of August, Wii Sports Resort has already sold more than 1.25 million units in the United States alone, according to the NPD Group. Nearly 2.9 million Wii MotionPlus accessories are in the hands of the public. That includes all those sold with Wii Sports Resort, standalone sales of 1.36 million and an additional 257,000 bundled with Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 10.
Shoppers looking for a bargain should find this a very appealing package, especially for those of you out there who still haven't checked out the amazing Wii Sports Resort title.
Wow, talk about an amazing deal! I'm one of the few people out there who doesn't have Wii Sports Resort yet. Now I'm really glad that I waited to buy this game!
Lamezaurs. Oh well, I just brought my motion plus to my friend's place and played with their WSR, so we had it set.
Yay! I'll have to get it as soon as I can! ...And then play it when I'm actually home...
This comes to late for me. Anyway, looks like it's just an US offer.
Well I got WSR with 2 WM+ for my birthday so this doesn't matter to me! Also I think my parents got the second WM+ for half price anyway!
My guess is they make a profit on the motion plus even when selling at $10. Like Mario Party Fan 999 suggest, there were MANY promotions at the launch of Wii Sports Resort that gave gift cards or package deals that brought the price of the second motion plus accessory down to about $10. This just seems like a nicer boxed version of that same price point.
It's saving money, just the same. So, yay for the latecomers!
Hope it comes to Europe
Nintendo is stepping up this holiday, still not getting the game anytime soon, but will get Wii MotionPlus.
Now I need to earn more money in order to take advantage of the offer (not that I am actually interested in WiiMotion+, but I would want some just in case).
Should've done that with original wii sports resort
Snap, too bad I already have two MP and Resort. Oh well, it's a nice deal.
I (still) don't have WSR so this sounds like quite a good deal for me for when I buy the game
High fives for the "people that don't have it" group.
That's a very smart move for Nintendo.
still don't have it, and I could use the ten dollar savings for a pizza to balance out the possible threat of exercise it might offer.
how long is the offer?
Along with packaging WSR and M+ with a new Wii Bundle in the UK, this also seems like another part of Nintendo's strategy to make WSR as much of a top-selling title as Wii Sports. Plus the strategy to get M+ widely adopted in order to persuade 3rd party developers to code for M+ support.
