@Max_Hydrogen: I bought my wii at launch and as such only have 1 controller. I need a wiimote plus, which is $20 anyways for that stupid add on. I'd say it makes perfect sense for me to buy that bundle, wouldn't you?

It would make just as much "perfect sense" for you to buy that stupid add-on.

He'd be paying the same amount of money and not getting the soundtrack. What is your problem?

Pretty sure he just doesn't know what the difference between a wii-mote, wii-mote plus, and the motion plus add-on is. If he does, he's just being purposely daft.

I don't have a problem: if he'd be paying the same amount that both options are equal.

Twenty more bucks for Motion+ and soundtrack sounds alright to me.

 
I think the soundtrack is literally just inthe first printing of the game, regardless of version...

No I was genuinely daft. I read the article to quickly you are all right: if someone doesn't already have a Wii Remote Plus and wants to buy this game then this bundle is a good deal.

Doesn't seem really worth it. The Wii is past its prime and paying 20$ extra for a gold colored remote looks like a cash grab unless bringing it with you when you play your friend on their Wii U tickles your fancy...

Maybe if they made a Master Sword controller...

The game requires wii motion plus, and this is their way of packaging it in with the game.

Considering buying the remote separately is $40, even if you have no interest in it you have to acknowledge it's a pretty good deal. We've all seen special editions that attempt to fleece the consumer -- This isn't one of them. Pick your battles, man.

You mean buying the Gold Remote separately? If it's not worth an extra 20$ would someone buy it separately for 40$ and not play Skyward Sword with it?

"Pick you battles". Yeah, thanks for the advice; I'll be sure to do just that (hint of sarcasm...)

You seem to have a misunderstanding about the hardware. Skyward Sword needs the Wii Motion Plus add-on for the Wii-mote to be played. That add-on is 40 dollars. The gold wii-mote packaged in the limited edition is a Wii-mote Plus, which has wii motion plus built into the controller. So for someone who wants to play Skyward Sword but didn't buy a Motion Plus, this saves them 20 dollars. For those that already do, the normal 50 dollar sku is there for that reason.

Yes, you're right: if someone doesn't already have a Wii Remote Plus and wants the game then also get a music CD. I read the article too fast and didn't see that.

He'd be paying the same amount, but he would get both an extra WiiRemote and the soundtrack CD for getting the bundle. 
In other words (and I'll try to type this slowly), he would be paying the same amount, but getting more for his money. Understand now?

You typing slowly has nothing to do with the speed at which I read. I know what you're trying to imply but it really doesn't make any sense.

I still don't have a Motion Plus. Now I don't have to worry, I'll just pick up this box. Assuming it comes to Europe. Might as well for what may be the last Wii game I ever buy...

Ok, you get what I'm saying now. It's the same cost as a tacky little attachment, gets you an extra controller (the gold is hideous, but it's still a functional controller) for half the price at retail. It's not a stupid little statue, or a tin case, or an artbook filled with nothing but promotional images that are all over the internet, it's a functional piece of hardware that improves the experience of the existing console by letting more people play, or allowing you to play more conveniently. Added to the fact that the Wii U will also use the Wiimote Plus, it's probably the best special edition on the market today, assuming you like playing games on your wii.

I don't, and I don't plan on getting this game in any edition (because it would mean unpacking my wii from the box in the closet and that would require effort), but even I can acknowledge it's a good bundle.

"As a surprise bonus, the latest Professor Layton includes the Brownie Brown-developed Professor Layton's London Life, apparently a 100-hour (!) RPG, with visuals awfully like Mother 3."

Hey, guys? We know you wanted real gold in your controller. We're sorry. We're so sorry. We're really, really sorry.

So, for $20 more you get a Wiiremote plus and a music CD? Sounds like a good deal for once.

I think the last thing I need for my Wii is a gold Wiimote. Kind of a neat preorder bonus though.

Considering that Skyward Sword will most likely be the last Wii game I ever buy, now doesn't seem like a great time to invest in a new Wii Remote.

The Wii Remote Plus will be backwards compatible with the Wii U. I have a Wii Remote and the Motion Plus adapter, but I want the all-in-one which I don't have. It's a very good investment if you're planning on buying the Wii U.

Definitely picking up Layton and Zelda. Not personally gonna pick up Tetris as I don't have a 3DS, but it has promise.

Fantastic.  Nintendo now has two reasons to take my money immediately.  And a Brownie Brown Layton RPG?!  Awesome.  I've only played ten minutes of any Layton game ever, but that RPG sounds like an awesome idea.

Don't get me wrong, I'll be getting Nintendo's latest cynical attempt at mining nostalgia at some point, but it'd be nice to have something on the Wii that hasn't been beaten into the ground since the 80s every once in a while.

Well, the non-gamers might be confused and try to actually take the controller to Cash4Gold.  :P  Seriously though, yeah, I don't know why anyone would think it would be real gold.

See, if you guys all bought a 3DS then maybe the wiimote would be gold plated. You only have yourselves to blame.

I like to think that since it's going to be the last Wii game I'll ever care about, I'm willing to put down some extra cash to go all out. Damn bundle looks fantastic. November is going to be great.

While not precious, there's an even chance the paint on that Wiimote might contain some lead.

@Musou: Did you read the three replies I left to other comments wherein I admit I misread the article and focused on the gimmicky nature of the Gold Controller without knowing it was a Wii Motion Plus controller and that IF ONE DOES NOT ALREADY OWN ONE AND ONE WOULD LIKE TO PLAY THAT GAME THEN YES, IT IS A GOOD IDEA. I read the article too fast and missed that part kinda like you read my earlier comments and immediately responded without reading the three (now four) comments wherein I explain my mistake... You know, the same mistake your guilty of?

DOES IT MAKE SENSE NOW?

If you want to sell me a 3DS, Nintendo, just get to work on localizing Phoenix Wright x Professor Layton. I appreciate you still selling me Layton on my DS, but be a pal here. You want me to buy a 3DS, I want to have a reason to buy a 3DS, you could have a reason for me to buy a 3DS. Help me to help you by helping me object to Professor Layton.

Considering Mother 3 was about 23 hours long, I'll take that "100 hour" bullet with a grain of salt. Portal 2 had about as many good hours in it as your typical 100 hour game so I'm hoping its more like 23 hours. Not everyone wants to burn life away pixel hunting 300 trinkets and mouse mazing 150 procedurally generated dungeons.
