    i thought they were only rumoured for now....

    although i think it would be quite cool, and quite likely to see them released :ihih:

    As far as I'm aware - yes they're just a rumour, should be nice to see this on the shelves and as part of a nice shooter - like Metroid :ihih:

    Why in the world did you post then?

    Yes, it's just a rumor. Don't get your hopes up, it might be a long time.

    they are making one like this but more like a shot-gun style for Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles

    It was just a prototype shown at E3 '06, it doesn't mean they're definitely going to put it into production. Nintendo hasn't put out any official press release about it.

    If you look at it closely, it's just a modified nunchuk attachment with the wii remote slid into the attachment's cradle.

    If the announced release for Duck Hunt is December, I can't imagine the gun won't be out then or sooner.

    I remember reading an article that said Nintendo is waiting for the right game to release it with. So i would assume in time it will come out.

    looks like there isn't much room to plug in the nunchuck either as your trigger finger would be in the way

    You wont need to plug in the nunchuck, the analogue stick and buttons will be integrated.

    it's not a rumour, it's in production, the remote and the nunchuk both slide in, with the joystick sticking out to obviously allow players to move whilst the B button on the back of the Remote will be the trigger after it has slotted in.

    Here's another picture of that same "Wii gun" (it's not a light gun, contrary to this thread's title) below, but from a top angle.

    Notice how the Wii remote and the modified nunchuk attachment are distinctly 2 separate peripherals connected to each other. The attachment is also missing a C button though. Can never have enough buttons, I say.

    And also, I really doubt this very prototype is in production. It's not very ergonomic. The attachment is incredibly bulky and boxy compared to the wii remote and the original nunchuk attachment. In fact, you can see the grip sticking out, which are signs of poor or rushed construction.

    Something to add to the rumor mill - there's word that Capcom will have their own "wii gun" for the Wii version of Resident Evil 4.
