How to identify a Wii Remote Plus Controller

The Wii Remote Plus was released in November of 2010 and incorporates the technology of the Wii MotionPlus accessory, allowing more precise and detailed control of game play. The two ways to tell if you have a Wii Remote Plus are to 1) look for the text "Wii MotionPlus INSIDE" just below the Wii logo on your controller, or 2) look at the very bottom of the controller to find the model number. The original Wii Remote is RVL-003; the Wii Remote Plus is RVL-036.
