    When are they coming out? If they've already been made, excuse me, because I've never seen one. These are a few pics I've been able to come up with...

    The MadCatz Version:

    ^^ Article about a supposed Pelican prototype.

    Anyone have more news/pictures on this subject? I'm just curious.

    The Madcatz one [the first spoiler] was shown about the time of wii's release. I too am surprised we haven't seen any, although it is new technology, so give it time.

    Yeah, I just can't wait to see the reviews. They're obviously going to be cheaper, but will they be THAT much lower of quality?

    ^ i hope not, but im not yet about to trust a third party wii controller, unless it gets outstanding reviews.

    I would expect them to be, if I were you. Nintendo is top notch, and even there speaker sounds garbage at times, as well as the motion sensor flawing, it only being usable within 10-15 feet and the pointer being horrible at less than a 45 degree angle.

    Now that I think about it, the wii remote kind of reminds me of a third party piece of equipment...

    Hopefully the price of Wii motes will be going down sometime within the next year. They're not even close to being worth $40 IMO.

    especially considering that you can't play a decent game with just the wii remote...

    it'd be pretty sweet to get a clear/lighted wiimote, even though the clear/lighted gamecube controller i got was complete ****, and big and uncomfortable.
