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]

FIFA 15 puts priority on emotions and giant dogpiles

Last month, I did my best to tell you what EA Sports wanted to put emphasis on for its three big sports titles this year. Then, it went and undermined me by releasing videos that say exactly what I wrote. In the unfortunate ...more

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15

About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to see Matt Duchene crash the net like a total badass.more
