Revolutionary: 3rd Party Control

Last week at CES, Nyko surprise announced their first entry into the 3rd party Wiimote market, the Wand.

Revolutionary: It Ain't Mii

As the New Year approaches and some of you are making your resolutions, it's a natural time to reflect on who you are and who you would like to be.

Game controllers have come a long way since we were holding a box with a protruding stick and tapping a single button. Now they're so packed full of cutting edge (yet inexpensive) tech, I'd half expect to see a Wii Remote and Nunchuk in the cockpit of the space shuttle* as a cost-cutting measure. ...
