    Atomic Accessories has come up with the first 'peripheral' for Kinect - the Game Boat.

    Yes, CVG readers, your cries have been heard! "Where is our peripheral boat?" you demanded in your millions following the rubber dinghy mini-game in Kinect Adventures. And it's here! Atomic Accessories, peripheral-maker of the people, would not let your demands go unanswered.

    "The first product in the Play On line-up brings the entertainment of Kinect Adventures game out of the tv set, directly in your living room!" it shouts on its website. "Game it Real! With this real-size replica of Kinect Adventures's awesome dinghy."

    We don't know what Game it Real means either. But if you want to Game it Real, something I'm sure we've all secretly wanted to do since watching the Kinect Adventures trailer, at least we can now do so thanks to this amazing rubber dinghy. Atomic notes that Game Boat can be used "in the water, at the sea or at the pool, by children and adults."

    Fingers crossed, next week their future peripherals will allow us to Game it Real with actual tigers for Kinectimals as well.

    In the sea? I'd have to be pretty drunk to take that POS onto an ocean.

    Lovely. A boat for a motion-sensing peripheral. Why not create a 'bed' peripheral too?

    For those AO rated games? I suppose that could work, since the Kinect is a camera-type thing. 2+ players

    If there was a rep button it would be clicked, instead, have a high five.

    the people who will actually buy this are why xbox live is more expensive now

    the golden rule of capitalism: stupid people will buy anything

    Also, 'tis a shameful rip-off of "Game Boy". Even the font they've chosen is mildly reminiscent, but given an "Indiana Jones" style.

    This thing is hillarious. I'd never buy it but I think its awesome just because its so weird.

    Honestly though, you gotta wonder if it's real.

    The perfect peripheral for sailing upstream in the shit that is Kinect.

    That's all I got, sorry. This probably beats the horse or baby peripheral as the dumbest idea I've seen recently.

    I can see it now. Lawsuits because people jumped onto the side of the peripheral, lose their footing, and hit something and/or hurt themselves.

    I was thinking of getting Kinect for Christmas as a family present. I have watched some videos and read a bit of the hype. I can't work out if this will finally add some good quality family entertainment to the Xbox or just be an epic frustrating failure.

    I guess £120 is not the end of the world so I might pre-order.
