As with most Wii purchasers, I added another Wii remote (or "Wiimote") and Nunchuk. The white's fine and all, but I really wanted the colored controllers as in the initial advertisements for Nintendo's Wii.
Remember the lime green and red ones?
Nevertheless, with two white controllers, I really didn't need any more. That is, until the black one finally came out.
I was initially baffled upon spotting the device because I hadn't heard anything about its release, and just happened to stumble upon some at my local Target. I asked the nearby clerk, "When did these come out?" but he didn't know (apparently they came out a week prior to this review). I rushed home and placed an order for the Wiimote and Nunchuk through Amazon.com (price-sensitive, I wanted the best deal; I could wait for Amazon.com to deliver).
The black Wiimote feels and functions superbly. Sure, it's the same as the white one albeit differently colored, but the blackness just gives it a supreme look--in my opinion, at least. The front side with the majority of the buttons has a glossy finish, which emits a radiant shine, whilst the back side with the battery door has a matte look and feel. The gloss may get dirty in the long run with fingerprints and skin oil, but for now it's staying shiny. The black rubber jackets may eventually attract dust and lint, but, again, for now they're as clean as can be.
Also, and this may just be the fact that it's still new, the speaker sounds louder and crisper than my other Wiimotes' speakers.Read more ›
The motionplus add-on is a must if you play games such as Wii sports resort, EA sports active, Wii fit etc. that rely almost completely on motion tracking for gameplay. Playing fitness games without them can be frustrating when you are waving your controller frantically trying to get a response, while your character is in a world of their own. However, you can easily get away without the motionplus in other games like Metroid or The Legend of Zelda, but it's still a welcome addition nonetheless.
The controller works fine and has given me absolutely no problems so far. If you're considering skipping the motionplus to save some money, my advice is not to do so. Most of the newer games are almost required to have the motionplus and it seems to be a trend that will continue well into the future as long as the Wii console remains viable.
Bottom line is that this is a worthwile investment if you need an extra controller for your Wii console.
One issue though is the jacket is a little thicker than the old clear ones, and seems to block charging with the Nyko inductive charger (Wii Charge Base Induction Charger), as of December 2009 anyway. If you actually use the jackets and have an inductive charger, you might want to wait for this to get resolved.
Now what you get in this neat $50 package is one black Wiimote along with a black newly redesigned "vest", "jacket", "sleeve", or "condom" for use with the stock Wiimote (sans Wii Motion Plus). You also get a black Wii Motion Plus device and a redesigned jacket for use with the Wiimote and the Motion Plus.
The Wii Motion plus addition here is a big deal for several reasons. First of all, is the fact that this device has a stand alone price of $20, and when combined with the stand alone Wiimote ($40), you end up paying $10 more than what you would have you bought this combo pack. Second, is that Wiimotion Plus has become a new standard for several games, and more are being made all the time. Said games will REQUIRE motion plus to play, so you might as well get it now.
Several games that require or are enhanced with WIIMotion Plus are
-Wii Sports Resort
-Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10
-Grand Slam Tennis
-Red Steel 2
One of the first things people will notice about this new remote is obviously the color. Nintendo has swapped the sleek iPod inspired white for a very sexy black. The buttons have remained the same color (red for power, blue for Home), but those match very fluidly with the new black exterior.
The functionality is the same, there are no new features, no noticeable improvements, at least on the technical side.Read more ›
