Simple. Intuitive. Easy to use. The Wii Remote Plus is a unique controller for the Wii video game system. Now with the increased sensitivity of Wii MotionPlus built-in. The button pressing of typical controllers is replaced by the natural, fluid motion of your hand. The Wii Remote Plus senses your every action and makes you feel less like a player and more like you’re part of the game. With Wii, anyone can play. Some games may require additional accessories (sold separately). See game instruction manuals. Wii MotionPlus accessory not required.
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.

Top customer reviews
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.
The controls & buttons worked well on both new remotes. There were parts during play that the remote had to be shaken madly, so the "Plus" portion of the controller worked great! (Fun part was watching the 2-yr-old copy the older kids by shaking her White remote as she "played" the game with them.)
This was my 2nd Wii Remote Plus - Pink. My 1st one was purchased on Amazon from an Amazon merchant. (Game Direct, now selling as GryoTek...DO NOT buy from them!) I sent that one back for a refund right away. (Ordered Fri, received Sat and filled out return form the same day) It was a very good copy. The A button felt "cheap" and it along with the cushy jacket were yellowed. The word "Pink" on the box was misspelled as "Bink". There were no batteries even tho' the box stated 2 AA batteries included, among other things. (pictures under the Pink remote posting)
I ordered a 2nd Pink controller from Amazon right away on Sat, received it Mon and was able to make side by side comparisons before UPS picked up my return. My authentic remotes work wonderfully! Happy with all 4 of them. And it's kind of fun having one of each color so people know which controller is theirs.
