Good price, thanks shacal :thumbsup:

I was about to post this yesterday, but then I read the review on the product page. It's a great discount, but the product seems inherently shoddy. Lukewarm.

So they're OK in your opinion? The review on the product page really didn't like them so I stayed away. But if you reckon they're OK, I might pick up a pair.

good for a fiver http://www.avatarjunkie.net/cimg/9f44e956e3a2b7b5598c625fcc802c36.gif

why would you want these? i mean a gun adaptor I can understand, it helps you to grip the remote in the right way, but this seems like pointless plastic, correct me if i'm wrong.

Couldn't agree more - its just ridiculous! All it is is an asthetics thing, it serves no purpose! :?

Yep you're probably right, but it didn't stop them shifting golf club shaped add-ons, baseball bat shaped add ons and other tat.

Where's the bowling ball shaped control that's what I want to know.

It's called having a bit of FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's what the Wii is all about!!!!!

voted hot cos' my other half plays this game.

Why don't you just buy some real ones?

Why don't you go out and acutally play golf? Or tennis? etc.

I understand some people can't go out the house, but for those that can, why are you so lazy?

I'm going to take a leaf out of your book and do this rather than staying in all day and playing an FPS. Don't be surprised if you hear about a couple of hundred people being gunned down in North Wales today.

So these will be for samba de amigo, a game in which you use the wiimotes as maracas.

This attachment turns your wiimotes into maracas, how on earth is this a pointless attachment? It makes the controls feel and sound like your using maracas. Instead of just pretending to be using maracas with unmodded wiimotes.

Far from pointless

ordered heat and rep

The game doesn't make maraca sounds? (I haven't played it)

I can't imagine a more ridiculous product.

The controllers make a quiet maraca sound from the built in speaker (if you have it enabled) - but sound nothing like the real thing - or like the DC maracas.

What...the...hell? Not being funny but I'm totally against pointless stuff to add to the Wii. All the Wii tennis racket extensions and the lightsaber plastic stuff is pointless.
True the Mario Kart Wheel and the Light-gun thing add easier controls, but they add nothing to the gameplay.
Thats my opinion anyway, I worked in GAME and this pointless stuff is made with 90% profit. Plus it looks silly. And smells.

There would be a point if the accelerometers in the WiiMote and Nunchuk were more responsive, but they're not.

Buy a pair of maracas and put on some samba music. We're not talking Guitar Hero here....

True, true - the game is a waste of time if you ask me, as it DOESN'T WORK!!!

They should have waited for the new Wiimote add-on thingy............

Yeah, 'cause like all people who play sport based console games don't do anything else all day long, they only play games because they are incapable of actually participating in physical sport. It's nothing to do with actually being interested in the sport and a bit of light relief, no that would be like totally unthinkable.

It's a bit like all those sad people who spend all day on bargain hunting websites, but never go out to actually shop. Look at all those lazy good for nothing people... ..just like you...

...Or am I assuming way too much?

These are £4.99 in-store, just seen them!

I think you are assuming a perfectly fair amount. Why is playing football in the park all evening every evening better than playing a video game all evening every evening? The cardiovascular exercise? Whatever. Each person does what they want with their (short) life. As long as it's legal, who gives a monkey's?

I have read that it is required that you cut open these Maracas too allow the IR get through to the WII system, is this true? If not then I will purchase as I like the Fun aspect for WII Gaming

what are these for ........BEZ the game or something




hey hey hey your twistin my melon man
