Following the announcement that Nintendo will launch the Wii Motion Plus add-on on Friday June 12th, and UK retailers have finally been contacted regarding trade prices and availability.
The peripheral has appeared on some online portals at 24.99 – more than the expected $20 retail price that has been touted for North America – but MCV understands that the final High Street price is more likely to be 19.99.
The upcoming Wii Sports Resort, which will come bundled with the Motion Plus, will retail for around 49.99.
Joint MD of CHIPS Don McCabe told MCV: I personally think the increase to the Wii trade price was made to take the eventual inclusion of Wii Motion Plus in the hardware bundle into account. It might sound like a lot of money but it's a complicated bit of kit.”
