    That looks brilliant. It doesn't have the retro design of all the photoshopped versions that were floating about a while ago, but playing Resident Evil and MoH will be bloody good fun by the looks. Huzzah!

    Yup, since there's probably no real electronics in it, it'll probably about £15 over here. :)

    Even being cynical I'd say it'll be £19.99 at worst. Current exchange rates for gear like this say it should be about £15 from somewhere like play.com, but the RRP'll probably be £19.99.

    Hah, looks great! Should also be fairly good on the hands. :)

    My Wiimotes don't have the standard battery or battery cover, so there could be trouble with 'installation', but hopefully it will be all right.

    Not too sure on the ergonomics of that design, looks like it is going to be a tricky one to aim with inless they are thinking of more a shooting from the hip with an aiming point shown on screen which kinda takes the skill out of aiming. Should be easy enough to mod something up from a cheap air rifle stock though.

    I'm surprised it wasn't something like Samus' arm cannon given the hype for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (which does rock btw)

    I hope it has laser sight, and i´d prefer the photoshopped shotgun design for the wii zapper (looks way cooler then that futuristic funny looking "gun" they came up with)

    This is gonna be great :)

    Maybe duck hunt will be available for download, would seem like an obvious idea.
