    Look really gimmicky to me. Do people have that poor of an imagination that they need to attach a cheap piece of white plastic to their Wii remote to imagine swinging a baseball bat, tennis racket or golf club?

    Save your money for a new Wii game imo.

    Actually, it may not be the problem of imagination. Yes, most of us can swing the bat with the wii controller, but having a bat with a bit more weight and acceleration, it could help your hitting distance. The farther away from your hand the more acceleration you can give the wiimote.

    Fair enough. I just find that I tend to end up with far too many accessories with my systems. Take my 64 for example:

    5 controllers (one offbrand, purchased at launch when first party controllers were rarer than a Halo fan with a girlfriend)
    Game Shark
    30+ games
    30+ manuals
    30+ game boxes
    4 rumble packs
    3 memory cards
    Game Boy game pack adapter
    "Hey You Pikachu" microphone w/controller adapter

    That's a lot of loose junk to keep with a system. In retrospect, I could have done without a lot of that crap. I'd imagine the bat/club/racket adapters would be a fun novelty for a couple days, and would then live the rest of their mortal lives in a dark storage bin.

    I do agree that it would be a neat gift for a young Wii gamer (read: child).

    yeah all these gimmick things seem pointless.. extra weight won't change much of the gameplay since its really the flick of the wrist that does all the functions, not really the actual swing.. also i wouldn't want to worry about and extra foot or 2 of something to hit something in my room :)

    I hear ya, I've come within inches of smashing my Wiimote into the ceiling while bowling (being 6'4" isn't all it's cracked up to be) and even closer to knocking my girlfriend's head off with my tennis swing. Personally, I couldn't afford the longer controller ><

    oh yeah, tiger woods rules too :)

    the wiimote would have the acceleration, the bat is the one getting more. You would still grab the wiimote about the same position....

    the only addon like this that i think would be practical would be some sort of sighting system for a shooter game so you don't have to rely on a cursor on the screen and go by "looking down the barrel of the controller" so to speak

    Ahh there better that way

    anyway these seem pointless I seriously told my friends that in about a year I would have to have an extra room for my Wii Remote Accesories and I'll just be swinging a real sword and stuff

    That would only make it accelerate faster if the Wiimote was in the end of the bat. You are still holding the Wiimote in the same position, therefore the only difference it would make is that you would swing slower because of the added mass of the bat attachment.
