If the Wii and Wii Balance Board are anything to go by, Nintendo's console hardware can be awfully difficult to get a hold of at launch. That might not be the case with the company's latest peripheral, the upcoming Wii MotionPlus.
Not only will the precision-enhancing Wii Remote add-on arrive on its own on June 8 (with Sega's Virtua Tennis 2009 the only game on the system to support it), but the attachment will also be available bundled with some third-party games. Electronic Arts today announced that its two MotionPlus-compatible releases for the month of June, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and Grand Slam Tennis, will both be available in bundles with the MotionPlus add-on.
While both games will receive MotionPlus-equipped editions in Europe, only the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 bundle will arrive in North America. The game-and-accessory package will cost gamers $59.99, while the game minus a MotionPlus unit will be available for $49.99. The bundles in both territories will be offered only for an unspecified "limited time."
