    I want a Zapper thats the size of a full rifle! :D  But this will do nicely. I wonder if it will work with the old Duckhunt on the VC.

    Mmmm... new Duck Hunt. I hope they call this the "Zapper 2000" or something equally bizarre.

    I like it, it fits with the style of the wand and game pad. I wonder if Nintendo will change the look of the system it’s self to mach or leave it as we have seen so far.

    I could see myself enjoying a First Person Shooter with that. I always thought it would be fun if done right. And if other companies release different shells (Light Sabre shell anyone?) then that could be an innovation all its own.

    um, waiddaminute. traditional light guns don't work on lcd/plasma screens. are they coming out with new technology, or are these only going to work on crt-based tvs?

    EDIT: so I guess as a shell, somehow the controller's going to know what part of the screen it's pointed at? if that's the case, then I truly am amazed at this little controller and it's detection capabilities...

    Why is that any different then the remote?

    Also, the remote doesn't use the same technology. It is detected by a sensor that you put in front of the TV.

    These peripherals are so cool I may need to buy full sets of them. I really hope that Marvel doesn't do a big crossover next year like Civil War.

    I think he is saying that he will need the money that would go to the big comic book cross over for game stuff.
