Nintendo To Release Wii Remote Plus


For any of you out there that hate switching the Wii Motion-Plus out of that damn rubber sleeve, I give you the solution to all of your problems:

Confirming a GameStop listing from late last week, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced at a press briefing in Japan last night the existence of the Wii Remote Plus, a combination of the Wii Remote and Wii MotionPlus peripheral.

"For the convenience of the users, Nintendo is developing Wii Remote Plus, which integrates Wii Remote and Wii MotionPlus," Iwata said. "We will announce the details of this controller on our web sites and through other media at some later date."

If the new Zelda lives up to the hype, I just might have to buy one of those; erasing frustration from my life is always a good thing.
