EA Sports Active 2 Extra Motion Sensor Controllers

Read the updated EA Sports Active 2 for the Wii Review.

UPDATE: It doesn’t look like extra controllers are available on the EA Store anymore, but you can actually buy a brand new EA Sports Active 2 from Amazon for anywhere from $12.99 to $29.99 and get an extra set of motion sensors + resistance band PLUS another copy of the Sports Active 2 disc (in case yours gets scratched) all at $30 less than the cost of what EA is stilling the controllers for.

ea sports active 2 extra motion sensors

EA Sports Active 2 came out last week for the Wii, Xbox, and Playstation 3 (I’m still waiting for my copy to come in; when it does, of course you can expect a full in-depth review).

One of the great things about EA Sports Active 2 is its support for two players through the use of extra motion sensor controllers. This is all well and good, but as of this writing, extra controllers are nowhere to be found, not on Amazon, not on Toys R Us, nor on any other retailer site.

Lo and behold, today on the EA Store they popped up. Here’s how you can find it:

  1. Go to the EA Store Homepage.
  2. In the search box on the top of the page, type “EA SPORTS Active 2 Accessory Pack”.
  3. You’ll see a list of EA Sports Active-related items. Choose EA SPORTS Active 2 Accessory Pack for the Wii (make sure you don’t select the Xbox one nor the version for the first EA Sports Active), and click the “Preorder” button.

Voila! You’ll be able to order it for $59.99. The package comes with another heart rate monitor that you strap onto your arm, another leg motion controller you strap onto your leg, and another resistance band. If you have two players, it’ll track your movements and heart rates separately.

EA Sports doesn’t indicate on the site how long it’ll take for you to get these extra motion sensors, but if you really need them I would recommend putting in the pre-order sooner rather than later. Something tells me these are going to be difficult to come by in the holiday season, especially since Xbox, Wii, and PS3 all share the same controllers.

The alternative way to get an extra set of accessories is to purchase EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp. But if you don’t need that game, you can save a cool $40 by ordering your extra controllers through EA directly.

    I had these on order for six weeks. Finally got so frustrated I just canceled the order. It was actually less expensive to buy another whole copy of EA Sports Active 2; I noticed that the sensors all have a “1” and “2” light on them so I figured they must work as either/or… but, I can’t seem to get it to recognize BOTH sets of sensors when I use Rebind Peripherals. Hm.
