An explanation for GameStop’s charging of Wii MotionPlus

If some of you know Wii MotionPlus has launched and so far it’s answered the promise of quality motion control (at least with Tiger Woods 10).  You can either buy the add-on by itself or through bundles.  Currently the games that support it are Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, Virtua Tennis, and Grand Slam Tennis.

In most stores the add-on retails for about $19.99 but at GameStop Wii MotionPlus retails at around $24.99.  I’ve seen a few people wonder about why this was, so I decided to contact GameStop to see what was up.  Here’s the answer I got:

“Thank you for contacting GameStop.com.

Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the manufacturers. We must sell their items at the prices they tell us to sell them at. If Best Buy and Amazon are selling the items at a different price that is the deal they have with the manufacturer, we have no control over what kinds of deals other retailers make with manufacturers. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.”

So there you go.  That’s the answer I got.  This issue doesn’t really bother me since I’m planning on only buying bundles until I have four peripherals but that’s just me.
