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.
- 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
MotionPlus technology inside.

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.Read more ›
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.
Oh... the seller is videogamehunter
The WRP has the Wii Motion Plus accessory already built inside of it and it is the same size and weight as the standard Nintendo Wii Remote when the standard Nintendo Wii Remote does not have the Wii Motion Plus equipped onto it. You have to remember that equipping and unequipping the Wii Motion Plus accessories just to play a game makes it where you don't want to play the game anymore.
Well, here it is my friends! The WRP! I purchased it and immediately tried it with my "Wii Sports Resort" game. Absolutely no problem! It works! It is not bulky or heavy!
Now, here is what is in the box. You get one Wii Remote Plus (WRP). 2 Panasonic brand AA batteries. One plastic outer case for the WRP to go into (it is the same material used for the standard Wii Remote. Maybe it is silicone?) One instruction manual.
HOWEVER, the instruction manual for the WRP does not tell you how to SYNC your new remote to your Nintendo Wii console, so if you do not have your old instruction booklet, I am going to do you a huge favor and type down the steps from mine. Please note that you do not need a working Wii Remote to start up your new remote.
Remember, I typed these steps out of my Nintendo Wii Operations Manual System Setup booklet
Step 1. Press the Power button on the Nintendo Wii console to turn it on.
Step 2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the remote (with the batteries inside of it). Press and release the SYNC button (a little red button) inside the cover. The player LEDs will blink.
Step 3. Open the SD card slot on the front of the Nintendo Wii console.Read more ›
