    Yay! Thanks, Nintendo. Thanks for charging me an extra $20 for something that should have been included with the original Wii Remote.

    *bends over for Nintendo*

    Ah well, makes me feel better about pirating the living shit out of your game products. [​IMG]

    Does this mean you won't be able to use the nunchuck then?

    I wonder if they'll release a new Wiimote with this built-in.

    Well, 50 euros for a game + 1 Wii Motion Plus is too much for me.
    I need two, so that would be 70 euros in total [​IMG]

    The motion-plus has a cover on the bottom that can be opened for the nunchuck and such.

    Considering Nintendo charges 20 bucks for the Wii Wheel and Zapper, which are just pieces of plastic.. this is the cheapest accessory released for the Wii [​IMG]

    50 bucks for Wii Sports Resort + Motion Plus doesn't sound like a bad deal.. this thing will sell like crack!

    Considering the wiimote and nunchuck are already extortionately expensive on their own this should be given to people for free.

    Wii remote x4 = $160
    + Wii MotionPlus x4 = $240
    + Wii Nunchuck x4 = $320

    + optional classic contollers x4 = $400

    Wow... this is customer rapage if you want a full set of controllers. And I thought $30 for a GC controller was bad...

    I have to agree that it's stupid how a controller for any console costs over $50. I guess the Wii controller will be the most expensive now since it's a 3 part controller haha.

    Mmmm I remember in the SNES era. An extra controller was $15-20. However some games did cost $100 like Street Fighter II Turbo.

    They should just release new Wiimotes with motionplus built in, for the same price as the original Wiimotes. Kind of like Sony with their Dualshock 3.

    That's actually $340 plus sales tax.
    $40 for the Wiimote + $20 for the Nunchuk that's included with your Wii.

    Aren't Euros worth more than the USD? I thought it's us Canadians that get screwed. 1 USD = 1.25CAD right now and it has been at 1.30 for the last couple of months.
