For die-hard Star Wars fans, the Lightsabre is probably the film series' coolest asset. So thank your lucky Death Star that a Lightsabre peripheral for the Wii remote has been unveiled. Wii_Light_Sword The Wii Light Sword Dubbed the Wii Light Sword, the add-on has just cropped up on online retailer Play.com’s website. The …
You too can have a glowing dildo to add inches to your remote.
Hurry now, while stocks last.
Note, players must add BZZZZZZZ effects themselves.
One one hand
Its a cheap tacky, needless peripheral.
But on the other, its a f**king lightsabre!!!! Yes, sign me up for on doc
This looks like it obscures the front of the Wiimote, this will stop the device being used for pointing?
"...Sadly, the Light Sword doesn’t make a “Vvvvwwwwwvvvv” sound when its waved around..."
Pathetic. The N95 "community" is currently up to version three, with a volume control and a choice of red or green. Our training is complete. Mention iPhones at your peril ;-)
so its a freaking wii-remote in a tube...?!?
How can this be sold as a product?
The Wii has rumble and a built in speaker...
"players must add BZZZZZZZ "
Not at all, the controller has a built in buzz feedback and a speaker, so it would be ideal for that.
Perhaps "Nintendo Virtual Mario Sex" for women who want to have fake sex with an fat ugly Italian plumber?
Or for soldiers out on duty whose wives can't keep their legs closed or have only limited grasp of their marriage vows?
Oh man, that is *so* on my Chrimbo list.
"Only a master of Wiivil, Darth..."
There is a speaker in the Wii controller though, so it should be possible for Star Wars games to add light sabre sounds.
Does this mean wii-players can't laugh at star wars kid anymore?
How long until the lawsuits???
I mean, just how much abuse will these things take, and how long until the broken plastic edge on one cuts some 10 year old in the US, leading to a multi-million dollar lawsuit? Which will promptly have them pulled from retailers shelves, possibly even before Christmas?
Think I will go buy a few hundred, and get ready to pop them on e-bay in 6 - 12 months at triple their price to the Star Wars fanatics, er, faithful...
this looks like it blocks the sensor at the tip of the remote ?!
can we have more than one colour for head to head play so we get the whole good vs evil thing? like a red one?
actually there was some article somewhere about modifying led lights with lasers from dvd writers and the like to enable them to burn things.........
so if I lose, at the game I can just hack off my opponents limbs :)
.... or maybe not.........
For those picking fault
The WiiMote is in upside down, so it's not blocking the tip (which isn't need as gyroscope movements are sent back via bluetooth) - the real problem is if the wiimote is upside down then won't all your movements be reversed?
Ignore me, I'm talking shite
But the nluetooth/gyroscope bit still stands
Was announced and demoed for the Wii a couple of weeks back...complete with Sabre Duels and ffrrrruuummmmfffrrruuuummmm noises from the Wiimote.
Star Wars Lego no more....http://www.lucasarts.com/company/release/news20070918a.html
could do exact same thing with an inflated glow in the dark condom and a wii controller
..... You want kids to play with inflated glow in the dark condoms? And some wonder why this country is going to Hell in a handcart!
FFS, pay the £15 and buy Junior the *king lightsabre!!
"...Sadly, the Light Sword doesn’t make a “Vvvvwwwwwvvvv”
This has got to be designed for WiiSaber, an app most people download, play with for 30 seconds andthen forget. http://isnoop.net/blog/2006/12/07/wiisaber-a-wii-mac-and-lightsaber-sandwich/
