The most annoying thing about buying a Nintendo Wii is that, after you get it home and out of the box, it suddenly hits you that it only comes with one controller! And considering the fact that Wii’s are such socially interactive consoles, it’s not long before you realise you’re simply going to have to invest in another.
The thing is that Wii remotes really do not come cheap. Recommended retail price is still as high as £31.99. However, here is a deal to ease the pain just that little bit as on Shop.net you buy one for the more down to Earth price of £17.85 (the next cheapest that you’ll find one is off Gameseek for £24.96).
So there you go. No more having to take turns on Wii tennis or keep untying the wrist band every time your opponent has a crack at Wii golf. However, the one game which you absolutely must have another Wii remote for is Mario Kart - not only is it one of the best, most classic games out on the Wii, but it’s a multiplayer dream come true!
Nintendo are also imminently about to release a big new accessory for the Wii remote called Motion Plus. Clipping into the bottom of your remote, the Wii plus adds a whole new dimension of precision and interactivity to gameplay. For the first time the Wii remote can track the movement of your arm to an exact 1:1 ratio. So if you know you’re going to a get that extra remote at some point, this is a deal you should definitely take advantage of.
