    Is it worth replacing sensor bar with a better one?

    Hi

    Is it worth replacing the sensor bar with a better one - if there is one.

    I was looking at getting a Nyko wireless one but was wondering of what the general opinion is.

    I wouldn't but a new one if your current one is functional. A wireless sensor bar is not worth the money since it provides no advantages in gameplay.

    There is no difference in the actual effect on the game. Wireless ones are good because they are useful. All the cable does is provide power to the unit.

    You can actually use any two IR emitting objects. Even remote controls can be used (but not to a playable extent)

    There isn't really any point. The only person I know who bought one of those had the wire bit through by a rat.

    All the sensor bar is is lights. You can actually put it behind you and point the remote backwards and it will work ok. (But why would you want to?)

    I discovered yesterday that those screw-in fluorescent bulbs could be used as a sensor bar too- I was calibrating because I just got back off vacation (took the Wii) and there was an extra light showing up-
