Here’s a couple of cool gun controllers I found while cruising the aisles at CES the other day. Both the Nintendo Wii and Sony PS3 are getting new guncons from CTA Digital, but the Xbox 360 got left out in the cold for some reason.
Remember that possible football controller? The kind-of-silly one? Yeah, well, there’s a new rumor all about the possible ball add-on, but this time we’re throwing Electronic Arts into the mix. Word is that they may have an all new fitness trainer in the works… but instead of aerobics and all, this one?
This new interactive video game is aimed at kids and involves stuffing your Wii-mote down a plush animal’s throat! Fun!
Actually, he kind of swallows it and the toy comes with the game. The game uses the stuffed animal as the game’s controller.
You can say what you want, but the golden glitter of this PS3 will draw anyone’s eye. This will undoubtedly be the world’s most expensive PS3 since it’s partially made out of gold.
This golden PS3 is the brainchild of Stuart Hughes, who released this wonder after his Nintendo Wii Supreme, which was worth almost half a million dollars.
While word on the street is that future versions of Rock Band might actually teach you how to play real instruments, modder Andy Lunn couldn’t wait that long and figured out a way to make real music with his Guitar Hero drum kit.
Most of the Wii gun controllers out there require that you slap your Wii-mote into some sort of add-on accessory, and usually feature questionable ergonomics. The new Penguin United CrossFire does away with such concerns by integrating their own Wii-mote into the gun itself – which as far as I know is a first.
Looking for a little wobble for a lot of cash? I’m not talking about Tony Hawk Ride or anything, with its world (and physique) destroying peripheral? That seems to be the basic principal behind the Friiboard.
…the Nintendo Wii Remote. Wait! I mean Wii Play (with Wii Remote). That’s right, folks. Halo isn’t the best-selling game of the decade, and it ain’t Gears of War. Forget all the Final Fantasy installments. It’s not any of the gun-toting installments of Grand Theft Auto.
Ball-rolling just doesn’t sound that exciting. We’ve been there. We’ve done the labyrinths. But let’s not forget that ball-rolling can get crazy (and sticky), and give something a little different a chance, like the gorgeously minimalist Night Sky.
The recent Muramasa: The Demon Blade has been well received amongst Wii fans and critics alike–so well received, in fact, that Muramasa has already joined the ranks of such games as BioShock. By that, I mean someone’s modeling their lunches after the action RPG.
The gorgeous WiiWare game LostWinds debuted last year to instant cult status. As one of the first games released for Nintendo’s original games service, LostWinds quickly emerged from the shadow of Square Enix’s My Life as a King to rock reviewers and Wii owners all over the world.
With the definition of just what a game is expanding so rapidly, mellow experiences like Endless Ocean and its forthcoming sequel are beginning to seem absolutely normal. The scuba diving games have an emphasis on exploration and the beauty of the ocean, without a lot of the goals and challenges that crop up in traditional games.
I’m starting to think Nintendo (maybe all of the big three, actually) employs a division whose sole job is to produce ridiculous patent applications designed to create waves of silly throughout the wide plains of the Internet.
