Did you pick up the gold controller?

#1 Posted by Hizang (9359 posts) -

The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword can be bought with and without a gold Wii Mote, so did you get the game with or without it?

I ended up going without it, basically I was going to get it with the gold controller, so I set off to Tesco after work to go and get it. But they had sold out of the bundle with it, I should have waited but I had psyched myself up for playing it tonight so I couldn't wait. I'll probably eBay it later on to go with my gold Classic Controller, but hey I'm one of the few people that have a Red Wii Mote and red Nun chuck, so suck it!

$70 is too much to be spending on one game. It looks nice and I'd like to have the integrated WM+, but I don't really buy anything at full price anymore, let alone special editions.

Yes, as I didn't have a Wii Motion-Plus accessory.

Two days later my mother came home with two WMPs that she'd picked up for £2. Not even joking. I hate life. Could have saved £18.

Patrick said that it was cheap looking so I'm glad that I passed on getting it.

I did because I don't have WM+ and it would cost more to buy them separately.

Yeah, I needed a motion plus, so it's a great deal, and the thing looks really nice.

I don't see them being as valuable in the future as some people seem to think though.

I passed on it because it wasn't real gold, sorry.

I did, needed a MotionPlus anyway and seeing as it was $20 less than buying the game and controller separately (Thanks Black Friday!), kind of a no-brainer. Controller itself is fine but that gold feels real cheap, looks spray-painted or something.

I'm shocked at most of you not having WMP, what have you been doing with your lives!

I have two of those MotionPlus dealies lying around so I skipped the gold controller. Tempting, but I resisted.

I did, but it's most likely against my better judgment. I already have 2 Wii Remotes that each have Motion+ attachments, but I figured I might as well since it's $15-20 cheaper than a standalone Wii Remote+ and if I end up getting a WiiU, I might be using these remotes for a while. Plus, I heard that the remote bundles were a bit rare (I heard that all the GameStops in my area were shorted their expected amount by more than 10 at each location), so I went out and hunted for one the morning of since I didn't pre-order it beforehand.

I have two red WMP, a white WM+ and a normal white WM.

Like I would simulate the Master Sword with something that doesn't have a Triforce on it.

Since I didn't own a Motion Plus controller already, I decided to go with the gold bundle. The gold paint feels pretty ghetto but at least I didn't have spend more money buying a controller separately.

I'm a Zelda geek.
Ofcourse I got it.

#17 Posted by Simplexity (1430 posts) -

Didn't have a motion plus controller so it seemed like the cheapest way of getting one, it looks okay though.

#18 Posted by byterunner (333 posts) -

yep, looks pretty cool also.

#19 Posted by MetalBaofu (1477 posts) -

I want to, but I can't buy anything right now. I don't have a motion plus, so I have to get one if I ever want to play the game, which is why I wanted the bundle.

It looks very Deus Ex in the black Wii condom.

#21 Posted by MikkaQ (10296 posts) -

Nah gold colored anything is really tacky, unless it's real gold, but even then it's pretty easy to look tacky. All-gold is super shitty looking, gold trim could look pretty cool though.

No. I don't want more Wii motes and also I just don't like the look of the gold controller.

I have a normal black Wii mote with the motion plus add-on and another black one with motion plus built in. (The motion plus add-on is currently in a box along with the Wii mote covers.)

#23 Posted by MidgardDragon (154 posts) -

I bought the bundle so I did. I haven't taken the condom off so I have no clue what everyone's talking about with the cheap feeling, as it feels more substantial than my regular Wiimote+'s due to the added rubber for now.

No, I didn't.

  • Looks like a banana
  • Not real gold
  • I don't own a Wii
#25 Posted by Hector (3523 posts) -

I got it. Not going to use it though. Well not until my current controller stops working.

#26 Posted by theTrueIronWarrior (4 posts) -

No I like my normal controller.

#27 Posted by mac_n_nina (293 posts) -

No, but I really want one. The reason for that is because I have a motion+, but it's the attachment. I don't like the attachment, it makes the controller too big so I might get one.

#28 Posted by Xtrememuffinman (951 posts) -

Yeah, needed Motion+.
Wouldn't have otherwise.

#29 Posted by Tireyo (6712 posts) -

Nope. I had a Wii motion plus controller already, so no since of getting another.

I want it, but I already have two WM+'s that I never use, and i didn't think it would be worth it for just one game. Still...I might just spray a Triforce onto one of those black wiimotes anyway.

I told myself I wouldn't buy it, but ended up going to a bunch of stores to find it on release day.

I regret nothing.
