Introducing the New Standard Wii Controller

The Wii Remote Plus Controller is the new standard controller for the Wii gaming system, shipping with new Wii systems as well as available for individual purchase. Like the original Wii Remote before it, this new controller utilizes a triple axis accelerometer along with a built-in optical sensor that works in conjunction with the Wii sensor bar. Together this enables the recognition of player movement as well as gives the controller the ability to act as a pointing device used in-game. Yet what really sets the Wii Remote Plus controller apart is its incorporation of additional gyroscope technology.

Wii Remote Plus gyroscope technology provides on-the-fly rotational motion recognition, once available only to Wii players who purchased the additional Wii MotionPlus accessory for the Wii Remote. The Wii Remote Plus controller contains all these motion-capturing capabilities within the body of a single controller. To top it off the Wii Remote Plus controller maintains the same compatibility to games as the Wii Remote, so you can play most of your old favorites with it. It is also the same size as the Wii remote. Taken together this means no more extra accessories to buy in order to experience the full effect of past or future games designed to take advantage of advanced Wii MotionPlus technology; no more compatibility issues with existing Wii Remote peripherals and skins. Just sync up your Wii Remote Plus controller and have at it.

Key Features

  • Moving forward the Wii Remote Plus is the standard Wii controller, shipping with all consoles
  • Incorporates the functionality of the original Wii Remote and that of the Wii MotionPlus accessory in a single controller
  • Comes in a variety of attractive colors, many of which match existing Wii console color schemes
  • Maintains the same compatibility and backwards compatibility as the original Wii Remote, meaning that you can use it to play these games even if the game contains no advanced motion-control features
  • The Wii Remote Plus controller is the same size as the Wii Remote, ensuring compatibility with all existing Wii Remote peripherals and skins

1.0 out of 5 stars False product placement May 31 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a long term gamer (22 years experience) and I've owned over 20 systems and 40+ controllers.
Having already purchased 2 Wiimotes for use with my Wii U, this product is not what is advertised.
What I received was a regular Wiimote, not a MotionPlus Wiimote.
Very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars What should've been the Wii remote in the first place comes better late than never. Nov. 22 2010

When I first tried the Wii, I was like everyone else: I expected it to have 1:1 movement sensitivity. Trying Zelda, I was baffled at why Link wasn't corresponding to my arm placement. After being schooled in the gyration of the remote, I just learned you have to swing it and the game assumes what you're doing.

Fast forward to 2009, and we have the MotionPlus accessory. As already mentioned in one of my previous reviews, the MotionPlus adds what the remote should've had in the first place: near one-to-one sensitivity. (After trying the PlayStation Move, I've found that that has better accuracy.) I was ecstatic about this feature, and played such MotionPlus games as Wii Sports Resort quite often. However, I found that the switching in and out of the MotionPlus and jacket became cumbersome, and soon opted for games that did not use the MotionPlus (the remote was a lot smaller and comfortable without it).

Fast forward yet again, to 2010, and I recall hearing rumors about the MotionPlus being built in in some Nintendo patents from Japan. Soon, Nintendo officially announced it, and I kept waiting for the North American release. Well, here we are, and we finally have what should've been the Wii remote to begin with.
They're exactly the same as the previous models, but with MotionPlus inside (cue the stamped reminder on the bottom front). However, I noticed that the blue lights indicating the player are somewhat brighter. Not sure if it's me, or if the lights just die out over time, but it was apparent when playing games in the dark. The blue and pink Wii remotes still come with clear silicone jackets, but that's a personal gripe.

So far, I noticed no difference in accuracy between this and the previous MotionPlus bundle. If you're hard-pressed for money and don't mind switching the MotionPlus in and out of the jacket for various games, this isn't a necessity. But if you have the choice, or need more controllers, this is a no-brainer.

Oh, and yes, this model comes with the silicone jacket and batteries.

When I bought these as pre-order, I could not verify if they came with the rubber cover or batteries. I was happy to find out they come with the same nice rubber cover and batteries!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better late then never. Nov. 9 2010

This is the controller Nintendo should have released from the beginning, but better late then never I guess. Moving on, the remote works like a dream. I haven't had any issues what so ever playing Wii Sports Resort, not even the minor glitches you get using the Wii Motion + and it's so SO nice to not to use an additional dongle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Counterfeits? More than likely! Sucks ***? Definitely!!! April 7 2012

I ordered two of these from the seller. Shipment was received the next morning! "Great! That was FAST!!!", I thought.
I opened them and paired them with my Wii system. Immediately, I noticed that on one of the remotes, a player indicator light did not work. OK, no big deal. It was the fourth light. Began game play and the sounds coming from these remotes were horrible. HORRIBLE!!!!! Distorted and static filled little bings, dings, etc. Now I'm getting upset. Then, during gameplay of Wii Sports Tennis, the motion lagged severely! I thought these were Motion Plus? More like Motion Minus!!!! I'm slightly upset. "Maybe I got a bad batch."
I log into Amazon and read several reviews where the reviewers claimed these are counterfeits. They state some of the same issues I experienced. Now I'm highly pis...., ahem, "perturbed". Within 30 minutes of receiving these, they were repackaged, return slipped printed and labeled and dropped off at the nearest UPS Store! I'm awaiting my refund of $63 ($31.50 each) which I hope to have no trouble getting back. I showed my wife, who made the purchase, and I'm sure she will read the reviews before buying from now on.

This isn't a knock on Amazon. I love this one-stop-shop. I can only imagine the difficulty in verifying every product being sold here BUT if Amazon can do anything about sellers hocking knock-offs on their site then they should. This is fraud. Plain and simple.

Buyer Beware!

Oh... the seller is videogamehunter

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better experience with WM+ games Nov. 20 2010

It comes with 2 Panasonic AA batteries and the protective rubber skin. One thing I don't like is unlike the clear plastic skin that comes with the Wii, this black one has a different texture and seems to be a dust magnet. But in terms of function, its incredible. I originally wasted a ton of money of Wii Sports Resort which was utterly a disappointment. The Wii Motion Plus attachment dongle was annoying to remove and put on plus it made the controller much bigger which was annoying. This Wii Remote with Motion Plus built in is as small as the original controller and I find it to me much more precise and calibrates faster. I definitely recommend it! Now I want to sell my original Wii controller and buy another one of these!
