Nintendo Wii Classic Controller Pro hits the US

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2010

If you own a Wii and are still playing it, you’ll be happy to know that the Classic Controller Pro is now available in the US. The controller features another row of shoulder buttons and ergonomically friendly grips to help you, well, keep a grip.

It can also be plugged straight into the Wii Remote controller for wireless connectivity with the Wii. This classic blast from the past comes in either black or white. We aren’t sure which games it works with, but we know that it works with over 450 Wii, WiiWare and Virtual Console games.

USB SNES controller with an Accelerometer

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2010

Imagine if the old SNES controllers had accelerometers inside. You won’t have to imagine any more. Someone with some extra time on the hands has done it. This controller has been programmed to play Portal. You can watch a video of the controller in action here.

Obviously it can be programmed to play other modern games as well. Pretty neat. I can think of a few PS3 games I’d like to try it with.

Wii Football controller is real

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2010

Back in September we knew that the Nintendo Wii Football controller patent was getting real. CTA Digital has now made it official and something more than just a render. We don’t yet have a date for launch, but CTA has it on their site with no price listed.

The soft football controller has both sides of the ball scooped out allowing you to get a firm grip which ever hand you use to throw the ball. The company also recommend you use the wrist strap to prevent accident throwing. You know, unlike a real football, which you want to throw.

Seven45 intros first six-string guitar controller

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2010

Seven45 Studios has unveiled this awesome looking SixString guitar controller for the Power Gig: Rise of the SixString title. It’s a real electric guitar that plugs into an amp and everything. Golly gee, you faux rockers sure have come a long way from rocking that plastic guitar hero guitar.

The game and guitar will be sold together. More experienced players will be able to benefit from chording, since this is much more challenging and requires specific finger placement on the strings. The game will be available on the Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms.

Wii Magic Stick Cover changes the D-Pad to an analog stick

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 30th, 2010

The Wii Classic controller is arriving in April, but if you don’t want to wait for it, you may want to check this out. Just slide the $7 Magic Stick cover on your Wiimote and you have an analog stick.

It isn’t pretty but it’ll turn your Wii-mote into a joystick. It should make gameplay more comfortable. It also makes the “A”, “1″ and “2″ buttons slightly larger, which should come in handy.

Pink and blue Wiimotes ready for Valentine’s Day

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 19th, 2010

We told you about these pink and blue wiimotes back in December. Nintendo is finally ready to release them while cashing in on the latest holiday.

There’s one for boys and one for girls. Throw in some chocolate and you have a nice nerd gift. These wiimotes will cost you $54.99, which is on par with the regular MotionPlus bundle. You can pre-order now and they ship on Feb. 14th.

XCM PS3 Light Gun

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 17th, 2010

Forget the fact that this light gun is white enough to pass for a Wii peripheral. It’s a prototype from XCM, for the PS3. Forget that it looks like a mod from a 4th grader thanks to the strange design, where it has half a Playstation controller with a gun on top. It looks like a mini crossbow for the latest Zelda game.

Even if this controller gives you a bit more control during gameplay, could you wield such a device without being laughed at by those in the room with you? Check out the video, then let us know what you think?

Razer Sixense Motion Gaming Controller for PCs

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2010

Razer has a new motion gaming controller for PCs, which obviously works similar to the Wiimote. The device is called the Razer Sixense Motion Gaming Controller.

It’s designed to let gamers control a wide range of functions on the PC, like moving around and controlling weapons, but most importantly the company claims that it will be extremely accurate down to the nearest millimeter. Two controllers are used to perform various functions in the game. Much like the Wiimote/nunchuk combo.

Nyko Wand + has MotionPlus built in

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 8th, 2010

Last year Nyko introduced the Wand, their version of the Wiimote. This year they update it, outdoing Nintendo by incorporating Wii MotionPlus technology into one single controller. That’s what Nintendo gets for being slow.

I’m glad I didn’t buy one of those MotionPlus accessories. Now I can get this and have a less bulky controller. The Wand + reduces the controller’s overall size and should give you a more comfortable gaming experience.

BOSS Wii controller shell brings back the SNES, for giants

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on December 20th, 2009

BOSS Wii controller shell brings back the SNES, for giantsThe B.O.S.S. controller from Performance Designed Products, is not really a controller, but a shell made to look like an SNES controller. It slides over your Wiimote and turns it into a huge controller fit for giants. We can’t imagine that it’s actually usable due to the size though.

Still for the big handed among you, it’s only $10 and hey, the name is done up in Mario colors, so it can’t be all bad right?

X-Cool Calculator

Posted in Calculators by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2009

X-Cool CalculatorCalculators just aren’t cool. They have long been associated with nerds that wear taped-up glasses and pocket protectors. Well, this calculator should help you nerds up your game a bit since it looks like a video game controller. All of the buttons are in the right place.

This calculator has 27 functions, an 8 digit LCD display, and a two handed design. It won’t kill zombies, or cure geek acne, but it will kill math problems dead and make homework faster.

Geeky video game controller ornamentsHere are some ornaments that are sure to make your tree geek-chic this Christmas. Sure, you could go the usual route and deck your tree in cheesy plastic ornaments that are all generic, but these ornaments are so much cooler.

They represent you for the gaming geek that you are. Forget the boring Santas and the plain red ball ornaments. A Dreamcast controller is what the holidays are really about. Right?

Fire Dragon USB game controller

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on October 21st, 2009

Fire Dragon USB game controllerAdd this one to the growing line of crappy novelty controllers. It’s a fire dragon for all of you D and D type dudes and dudettes who like to prance around in Elven armor and decorate your place with pewter trinkets.

It’s laid out like an XBox controller and you gotta love that “ergonomic design”. Apparently the tail is removable, so you can get all stabby with the guy playing next to you.

Wii custom-made Heckler and Koch MP5 controller

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 16th, 2009

Wii custom-made Heckler and Koch MP5 controller Say hello to my little friend. Pow, pow, pow, pow. We all know that there are ten million Wii controller accessories, but this one means business. This is a 1:1 scale Heckler & Koch MP5 sub-machine gun for the Wii.

Instead of using Nintendo’s own controllers for the gun, the that made it implemented full Wiimote, nunchuck and MotionPlus functionality into it. Plus it has a built-in rechargeable battery that charges via USB and a built-in speaker. It will also rumble when you get hit in supported games.
