Wii Remote 2.0? No, snakebyte Remote XL+!

Hemer, 29. März 2010: Sunflex Europe, known for high-tech gaming accessories of the brand snakebyte for all gaming consoles, handhelds and the PC, has used the last few months to improve the Remote XL+ with new features:

Motion Plus integrated:

Motion Plus is already integrated in the remote to offer you a comfortable all-in-one solution, which automatically (de)activates the Motion Plus feature while playing games which do, or do not support Motion Plus.

Increased range:

The integrated camera was emphatically improved and now also offers you the possibility to step away up to 5 meters from the Sensor Bar.


Thanks to improved efficiency, the Remote XL+ uses less energy than comparable products on the market. The batteries have a longer life, therefore reducing the environmental pollution.

Integrated batteries and charging possibility via USB:

The Remote XL+ already has batteries included in the delivery which can be charged via USB directly in the remote. A USB cable is also included in the set. Since the batteries are off-the-shelf items, they can be exchanged with any other AA batteries at any time without having to buy expensive accessories.

External sync button:

Because the sync button is on the outside of the remote, you do not have to open the battery compartment to synchronize your remote with the Wii.

The Remote XL+ is available from April for 49.99€ in the stores or the snakebyte web shop.
