EA Sports Wii titles being bundled with Wii MotionPlus

Electronic Arts has announced that it will be bundling some of its upcoming titles with Nintendo's Wii MotionPlus peripheral. 

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, which hits stores on June 16 in North America, will come bundled with the accessory at launch. For Europe, both Tiger Woods and EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis will ship with the peripheral when those titles land this summer. Both titles will obviously make use of the added functionality of the title, which will enable more accurate and nuanced motion controls.

This is an interesting move on both EA and Nintendo's part. Seeing how well bundling a Wii Remote in with WiiPlay did for that title (it's still one of the best selling games on the system), this could work wonders for both of these titles. I mean, not to say that WiiPlay alone isn't worth its weight in gold...

No word on North American pricing, but the titles will come to European retail at £49.99, roughly £10 more than traditional Wii games. Looks like you'll be paying a bit for the priviledge of more accurate motion controls. We'll update as soon as we hear information on North American pricing, and whether or not the games will be sold without the peripheral.

[Update: The bundle pricing for North America will be $59.99; Tiger Woods will be available without the accessory for the standard Wii game pricing of $49.99]

Review: MLB 14 The Show

I was ready for last year’s The Show to be its PS3 swansong, I was feeling it. It’s not that it wasn’t good. It was as good as it ever was. But there were signs of age. The same old horrifying fan models in ...more

See the ugly side of football in Dirty Sexy Soccer

Football sure has its ugly side, whether it's match fixing, hooliganism, and John Terry's wandering hands. Football Manager, for all its accuracy, never takes into account any of these things, but Dirty Sexy Soccer does. It'...more
