    Wiis newest accessory is sure to get your blood pumping.

    We all know that exercise bikes are boring; furthermore, they demand an inordinate amount of energy, which ultimately gets you nowhere. As such, it is far better to jump on a real bike, as not only does it move you from A to B it can also be enjoyed with a friend or two. So when Big Ben Interactive announced the upcoming Cyberbike for Wii,..

  • News NES Controller is in the Bag

    Quite literally

    Crafty Etsy gal inhope has decided to grace her online shop with this lovely NES-controller bag -- not a bag for carrying a NES controller, but a ladies shoulder bag which has NES controller stylings (it does look like you could probably fit a Wii into that thing along with a large wallet, however). inhope is based in the USA and the bag is priced at US$39.99, though you can get it..

  • News Wii Fit Gets Its Own Wii Mat

    The Wii is looking more and more like a successor to Reebok's STEP fitness system

    Despite confirmation from many sites (including us) that the Wii Balance Board is perfectly stable on even the most polished wooden floors, Nintendo has nevertheless endorsed the production of what can only be described as the most bizarre videogame accessory we’ve ever seen. And yes, we include the Power Glove in..

  • News Feel The Force With New Lightsaber Holsters

    The legal team of Lucasarts may have something to say about these

    Cheap plastic holsters for your Wiimote are nothing new and third party peripheral manufacturers are practically falling over themselves to produce even more outlandish (and ultimately pointless) pieces of ‘controller clothing’. However, one item that did impress us in a thoroughly superficial way was the lightsaber attachment..

    If your life is haunted by the flaps on your Wii, salvation may be at hand...

    The Wii is a lovely looking machine with a superb design. However, there’s one element that lets the console down – the bloody flaps that covers the Gamecube ports and memory card slots. They're flimsy at the best of times and often fail to close correctly, causing minutes of annoyed fumbling as you try to click them..
