Nintendo has finally announced an official release date and pricing point for their Wii Motion Plus accessory. On June 8th the stand alone Wii Motion Plus add on will be priced at $19.99, the same price as all other Wiimote add-ons. A month later will see the release of Wii Sports Resort with the Wii Motion Plus add-on priced at $49.99. I’m glad they are selling the Motion Plus accessory separately as shelling out $50 multiple times would be really shitty.
Next up we have an update on Rock Band: The Beatles and why the damn bundle costs $250 (which is $70 more than the regular Rock Band set up). Well the reasoning behind this price hike is that it will be a limited edition bundle that will include The Beatles: Rock Band game, a Höfner Bass controller, Beatlesque and Ludwig-branded Rock Band drums with classic pearl finish, a metal kick pedal and a vintage replica drumhead; plus a microphone with stand. So with all the fancy new guitars and mic stand, I guess that makes up for the additional $70 tacked on.
