EA games to bundle Wii MotionPlus

Tiger Woods, Grand Slam Tennis first.

EA plans to bundle the Wii MotionPlus accessory in sports games Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and Grand Slam Tennis this summer.

The packages will cost GBP 49.99, which is 10 quid more than normal Wii games.

Wii MotionPlus arrives as a standalone accessory on 12th June. European pricing has yet to be set, but Americans know they will be forking out USD 19.99 for each clip-on WMP attachment.

Wii Sports Resort will also bundle WMP when released on 24th July.

Wii MotionPlus doubles the motion-sensing capabilities of the Wiimote by adding a gyroscopic sensor. There are no more degrees of freedom Nintendo can now add.

The result has been universal praise. Our hands-on impressions of Virtua Tennis 2009 - another game to adopt the technology - can give you an idea of what to expect.
