    I've seen pictures of possible Wii Gun attachments but have not seen anything concrete. Does anyone know if an official Wii Gun attachment has been released? If so, do you have a link?

    i have also een a variety of wii "blasters" and "zappers" out on the market. if you wante some links just lemme kno i will look 4 u.


    other wise, the most impressive out of all of them is the w14 light gun from piranna accessories. It is the exact replica of a hanggun, and is perfect for RE4

    Our good friends at Ledshoppe seem to be selling two versions of a Wii light gun, one for $15 and one for $16. The $15 looks like the better one to me... (these are both the $15)

    I ordered one among other things, just for kicks. It was shipped on the 3rd of July, not received yet but it usually takes 7-10 days to the UK.

    Let me know how it is when you receive it, Little!

    P.S. I would really like to get a gun with an analog stick in the back so that I can play certain games with one hand (Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles comes to mind). Then again this may be extremely difficult to control...

    2 things.

    The fact they have no analog built into the controller makes RE:4 unplayable(-tear-).

    Umbrella chronicles is said to be house of the dead style, you control no movement and just point and shoot the whole game as you're auto-controlled.

    I got mine the other day, It is really cool for games like resident evil and such, I dont have the one that looks like those pictures.
    This is how mine looks: WiiGun
    There is an anolog stick on it so no need for the nunchuck; although it would be easier if you were able to attach it to the bottom of the gun(Oh Well).
    I advise this to people who enjoyed using the gun accessory available for the SNES. Good times playing Duck hunt

    I didn't know they released that...

    So, how is aiming and using the analog at the same time? Tricky?

    "'A button' picks up items and chooses paths (occasionally, you can select to go in one direction or another), and 'B button' is your trigger. Press it and you'll shoot -- that simple. But you can use nunchuk's analog stick to look around the game world -- left, right, up and down -- as you glide on-rails through the areas. You'll want to do this because it's how you find the hidden items such as guns, ammo and health that are strewn about the levels."

    Aiming and using The analog is a bit tricky but you catch on to it

    Edit: Woah for the Light gun, there is a wii nunchuck attachment:

    I got my light gun today... brand is "pega". The nunchuck gets plugged into the bottom. Just as shown in awdofgum's picture. The trigger button pulls on a little bit of plastic that is where the B button will be when the wiimote is in =) All in all looks good so far! unfortunately I've got work now [​IMG]; Trust the post man to give me a fun new toy when I've got to go to work!

    I really like it but $19.99 just sounds too expensive for a bit of plastic.

    And if I heard Nintendo properly, I'm pretty sure they said that included software also. [​IMG]

    I was really hoping for a one-handed solution...

    Who says you can't hold it with one hand?

    Wow, I found something even worse than the Nintendo Zapper. This doesn't even have a trigger:

    Well yes you can hold it with one hand, but I mean hold and OPERATE with one hand.

    Ok, so this is sort of what I have invisioned for the button layout. It's a one-handed gun that should do everything the WiiRemote / Nunchuck combo can do. They could even add a gyrometer / accelerometer in the handle if they find it necessary. They should also make the analog stick have a "on-press" button like the PS3's 'L3' and 'R3' analog sticks. This button could act as the Z button.

    My prototype:
