Special Wii Sports Resort Bundle for US on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo has revealed that not only are US gamers set to see a Wii price cut, but a special Wii Sports Resort bundle as well! Wii Sports Resort is all about getting multiple people involved in friendly sporting competitions. Therefore, starting 12th October, consumers will have even more incentive to get in on the fun when Nintendo releases a special, limited-edition bundle of the Wii Sports Resort game that comes with not one, but two Wii MotionPlus accessories, which bring enhanced precision to games.

The bundle will be available at a suggested retail price of US$59.99. Typically, Wii Sports Resort comes with a single Wii MotionPlus unit at US$49.99, and additional Wii MotionPlus units are available at US$19.99. The new bundle will be available while supplies last at most major retailers.

"Shoppers are looking for value as we head into the holiday season, and this Wii Sports Resort bundle is a gift that players of all ages and experience levels can enjoy. Best of all, it instantly gets multiple members of the household engaged in playing as soon as the package is opened."
- Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

Through the end of August, Wii Sports Resort has already sold more than 1,250,000 in the United States alone, according to the NPD Group. Nearly 2,900,000 Wii MotionPlus accessories are also in the hands of the public. That includes all those sold with Wii Sports Resort, standalone sales of 1,360,000, plus an additional 257,000 units that were bundled with Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 10!

Well i'd be glad i waited to buy too if i lived in the US... I hope we'll see the same kind of bundle in Europe as well. I own two wiimotes, so this would be the big deal Smilie.
