Wii Sports Resort Bundled With 2 Wii MotionPlus

Wii Sports Resort, the game from Nintendo developed to showcase the raison d'être for the Wii MotionPlus controller add-on, is finally about the get the bundle that makes a little more sense.

Starting October 12, consumers will be able to buy a "limited-edition" bundle of the Wii Sports Resort game with two Wii MotionPlus accessories. Given that Wii Sports Resort is a game typically played in a social setting, most buyers would immediately have to pick up a second accessory.

The original Wii Sports Resort comes with a single Wii MotionPlus unit at a suggested retail price of $49.99, and additional Wii MotionPlus units are available at a suggested retail price of $19.99. The upcoming bundle will be available at a suggested retail price of $59.99, saving buyers $10.

"Shoppers are looking for value as we head into the holiday season, and this Wii Sports Resort bundle is a gift that players of all ages and experience levels can enjoy," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Best of all, it instantly gets multiple members of the household engaged in playing as soon as the package is opened."

Will Nintendo run away with the majority of the holiday sales again this year, as it did in years past? With the Wii price drop (along with lower prices for all consoles) and bundles such as this, it'll be interesting.
