    This should be a good enough reason to get a wii-motion plus wiimote.
    Mostly in anticipation of playing Zelda Skyward sword actually. [​IMG]

    Cool. It probably won't sell as well as the first (I would image people ONLY buying this for Skyward Sword).

    People aren't into the Wii like they used to be.

    Nintendo is the king of milking EVERYTHING.

    Wii Play was like one of the worst Nintendo games made. Period. It was shovelware in every sense of the word. The only reason it sold well is because of the extra Wiimote. You'd buy it, play the game for all of 10 minutes, then never play it again because it sucked.

    that's the only good thing about it
    nintendo said it was for noobs who can't use the wii remote well and that was to ''teach them how''
    i was like you're kidding me right?

    Like or not, Nintendo is a business and of course after realising the massive success commercially of Wii Play. I'm not surprised, besides everyones gonna need a MotioPlus to play Skyward Sword so heres the ebst way to do it

    God, the first Wii Play sucked, and I don't see how MotionPlus is going to save the series. Just give me Skyward Sword already.

    Agreed. I actually did a review on Club Nintendo of it, and just tore it apart.

    What do you expect out of 9 games for the value of $5? That's the cost of wii play minus the wii remote cost.

    Actually for $5, Wii Play wasn't so bad, it served its purpose of introducing the players to the wii remote.

    the best sports game collection that is mii-based for me is wii sports resort and esp for the table tennis. Infact i didnt truly like the over flexible controls for wii sports tennis or wii sports as a whole. Especially since good games like golf for me gave me some putting problems (i wonder if others experienced it or maybe i suck at it although i did get an award for beating the table tennis girl champion)

    The wii really is reaching its end, isn't it? The only games I am looking forward to are xenoblade, and skyward sword.

    Eh, I'll probably end up buying it for the Wii Remote Plus. Does it still need to calibrate itself every other minute like the Motion Plus add-on?
