Don't Bother with 3rd Party Distributors
on May 20, 2015
Tried to save a few bucks going with a third party distributor once, then I decided to buy a few of these brand new licensed remotes, this is definitely the way to go. On top of the fact that these licensed remotes actually work consistently and they don't ever break, Nintendo has made quite a few neat improvements since the original Wii remotes:
-First off, Wii Motion Plus is built in, which is really nice.
-Batteries last for hours upon hours upon hours (though I'd still recommend buying rechargeable batteries.)
-The grips now have these little grooves in them which makes them very comfortable to hold onto.
-The button for syncing is now found on the outside of the remote, so you don't have to remove the backing to sync it with your Wii/Wii U
-And the remotes come with those rubber grips, which personally, I find a hassle and would rather just not bother with, but other users might find them to be pretty neat.
So if you need a remote or a few extra remotes, just splurge the extra dollars and go with something licensed, there's much more value in it.
