5.0 out of 5 stars A better Wii Remote experience., December 20, 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Wii Remote MotionPlus Bundle - Black (Accessory)
Nintendo's Wii Remote has proved to be quite the revolutionary thing. It provided a new and fresh experience, and, with the help of Wii Sport, sold the Wii to millions of homes. It has an Infrared Pointer, motion sensing accelerometers, and a mini speaker on the front. The Wiimote has since been proven as a flashlight, a light saber, a katana, a steering wheel, a gun, etc.

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. The actual plastic material has been changed though, for the better. The top side remains with a glossy finish, but the underside, instead of mere plastic, there is now a very nice matte finish. It provides a better grip, and you'll find yourself with less sweaty hands. (note that this may be case with new White Wiimotes as well, but this is the first Wiimote ive bought in 2 years, so i wouldn't know).

All in all, im very happy with my purchase. You get a Wiimote, WM+, and two "jackets" for just $50. You save some cash, and bag the WM+ that will be eventually needed.
