If you are a Wii gamer, you probably have a MotionPlus accessory that you use for some of your games. I think that we can all agree that having that MotionPlus accessory sticking off the end of your controller isn't the ideal way to get better control in your games. Nintendo is working on a new controller that has MotionPlus built-in. Sunflex has announced the Snakebyte controller claiming the title of first third-party controller to integrate MotionPlus.

The official name for the Wii Remote is the Snakebyte Premium Remote XL+ controller for Wii with Motion Plus. That is a seriously long name for a controller. The Snakebyte supports up to four players just as the normal Wii Remotes do. It also has an integrated speaker, memory settings, and vibration effects just as the factory controllers do.

The Snakebyte controller gets power from an internal rechargeable battery that charges from the USB port on the Wii or a computer. The controller also features an external sync button so you can synchronize to Wii consoles without having to remove the battery door. The controller is shipping now for $34.99. That price is only $5 cheaper than the official Nintendo controller with MotionPlus built-in, I'd rather spend the extra $5 and get the real deal personally.
