I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that your matte black or – gasp! White, you peasant! – Xbox 360 controller just. isn’t. shiny. enough. Ok, most of you probably weren’t – but for the handful of you that want more bling in your hands, Microsoft has you covered. The company’s announced a series of shiny new chromed out controllers for those who like to accessorise. Available in Blue, Red and Silver the...

Kinect Gets its Own Stupid Accessories

The Wii’s motion-controlled gaming (and to a lesser extent since the release of Playstation Move, the PS3) has afforded profiteering purveyors of perplexingly pointless plastic periphery the prospect of peddlling their preposterous products.  If you thought Microsoft’s Kinect – which is free from controllers of any sort – would be spared all manner of unnecessary accessory – you’d be wrong. Very, very wrong....

What Could These Wiimote Accessories Be?

The Wii is home to some of the most bizarre, pointless and esoteric peripherals. Plastic shells that cost money and do absolutely nothing from a gameplay perspective. This latest bunch of attachments, courtesy of Mojowijo is a little different. what on earth could these be? If you guessed sex toys, for once, you’d be right on the money shot. These, however, aren’t meant to be used with the Wii. Well, not the console, anyway. Using...

Overpriced Kinect Peripherals Inbound

Of course it was going to happen. Kinect, Microsoft’s motion-controller sans controller is set to receive some officially licenced peripherals. thankfully, we’re not in Wii territory yet; These aren’t plastic tennis rackets or faux bowling balls (because, ostensibly, you could use your own real versions of those things). No, these overpriced peripherals are intended to help you mount (no, not like that) your shiny new Kinect...

New Guitar Hero? New Guitars!

Many of you – like I do – probably have a cupboard full of plastic peripherals. With Guitar Hero : Warriors of Rock on the way, you may have to add more, because the new guitar is a pretty serious axe. It also forgoes realism for campy cartoony fun, which I hope the actual game does too. with the new design, they’ve managed to consolidate all of the electronic innards into the neck and fretboard. What does this mean? It means...

Wii Peripherals Have gone Beyond the Ridiculous

In my absence, Gavin posted about a pet peeve of mine; mindless Wii peripherals that don’t add anything to gameplay but do remove money from your wallet – if you’re the sort of person who keeps his wallet in his back pocket, right behind his brain. With each new silly peripheral, you’ll find me calling it the dumbest thing to have ever been made. This though – Wii wings – takes stupid peripherals to new heights. CTA, crap...

In what has to be one of the most unexpected bits of news this week, Polaroid, the company famous for their instant cameras and to a lesser degree sunglasses and lenses will be entering the video games market. Beginning next month, Polaroid will begin shipping a large range of video games accessories across all platforms. So that’s a thing that’s happened, apparently. Polaroid will release a series of accessories, including Wii...

3-Year-Old Killed in gun Accident, It’s the Wii’s Fault, apparently.

Three-year-old Cheyenne Alexis McKeehan was killed in what can only be called a very unfortunate tragedy. She shot herself in the abdomen after apparently mistaking a loaded gun for a Wii gun controller. According to the Sheriff on duty, Terry Ashe : The child had been playing a Nintendo Wii video game, Ashe said. The game’s controller was shaped like a gun that looked very similar to the real handgun, which her stepfather had put...

Wii Sniper Rifle Gun Exists. Am I surprised?

For the love of all things covered in delicious milk chocolate, this exists. Peripheral and accessory makers CTA Digital have announced and released the a Sniper Rifle Gun for Wii – which includes a removable stock and barrel, magazine tube, sniper scope, and stand. All of which are completely devoid of any functionality. The scope even, is purely for cosmetic purposes, because it’s “not intended for gaming accuracy.” The gun...
