Nintendo's really trying to get some motion going for Wii MotionPlus. Electronic Arts has now formally announced that they're pushing through with the collaboration, bundling two of their upcoming titles with the new motion-sensing controller. Soon, you could be playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and Grand Slam Tennis with the latest in Ninty's motion-sensing technology.
This exclusive and limited-time offer is exciting news for sports fans who want to enhance their Wii experience for a great value with the new Wii MotionPlus right at launch with both Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis, said EA Sports president Peter Moore, adding that the new accessory will help them deliver the authentic sports experience to their titles.
Five more titles are expected to come with Wii MotionPlus, although EA Sports has yet to make the confirmation as to which ones these will be. As it is, the Wii versions of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and Grand Slam Tennis will be bundled with the accessory when it ships to Europe this summer, while North America will only get the Tiger Woods bundle at launch. Bundle pricing is at GB 49.99 (about US 73).
