    I am looking to purchase a Wii U Premium Pack, and am curious as to whether or not third party Wii remotes are compatible with the Wii U.

    EB Games, my primary local game retailer, is selling the console with a Spartan Wii Remote + and Nunchuk, which would be a good deal for me, considering my other Wii remotes do not have Motionplus.

    It would be great if anyone could give me some info on their experiences with third party accessories.

    stick with a Official Wii Remote (With MotionPlus)
    ALL 3rd party ones have problems.

    I thought I could save a buck getting the Nyko Wand+'s ( I got 2) so as they were cheaper then a Wii Remote (this was before the Integrated MotionPlus into the Remote) and had MotionPlus builtIn, Which is why I got them. they are terrible.
    Not as accurate, MotionPlus is inaccurate, and NintendoLand minigames that use the MotionPlus features keep prompting me to insert one into my wand+(that has one already).
    so either get a official one or end up like me and others who get prompts that want me to use a "Wand++"(made it up) that has a motionplus adapter attached to a it with it having it builtin also.[basically I get a prompt to attach a dongle to my wand+]. this happens to others as well.
    3rd party remotes still have the same problems then as they do now so this is still relevant.

    Absolutely no 3rd party remotes work.

    actually, the Nyko Wand+ Sometimes works. I can get it to work if i keep trying to play it. eventually, it will let you in then complain again, then it will work for the NintendoLand Minigames, its just annoying to do so.

    Looking to get additional Wiimotes (as my daughter wants to have the Wii which is now unused) and am looking at 3rd party ones as the £50 (for wiimote + nunchuk) is a bit expensive .... I saw on the net somewhere that they don't work with charging stations which wouldn't be good anyway. Anyone got any ideas ?
