Nintendo Shipping MotionPlus Dongle In June
The device was actually revealed around a year ago, but in the meantime, Nintendo has been working to alleviate Wii console shortages and deliver the incredibly popular DSi. Now, at long last, Nintendo has revealed that the MotionPlus add-on is slated to ship here in America on June 8, 2009. Of note, that date is just days after the E3 conference in California wraps up, so the timing is definitely right.
As for costs, consumers can expect to pay $19.99 per unit, and as with the Nunchucks, they'll be sold individually. In order to fully take advantage of the control enhancements, Nintendo is readying customers for the release of Wii Sports Resort, a beach-themed title that will ship on July 26, 2009 for $49.99 -- but that price does include one MotionPlus adapter.
