i have said it before and i will say it again: lego is a clever mofo. they integrated themselves into the video game market by authorizing the titles we all know and love. now it turns out that they have a lego wiimote. it’s an exclusive pre-order viatoys ‘r’ us for $40.
the toys ‘r’ us web site goes on to say that the product comes with a pile of shit:
- The remote features internal accelerometers, an internal speaker, rumble effects and larger buttons for enhanced control during game play.
- Works with most Wii chargers and attachments (using included Standard Battery Cover) and is compatible with Wii MotionPlus.
- Includes Remote, Wrist Strap, 2 Battery Covers, and 31 Mini LEGO tiles with LEGO Tile Separator.
- Officially licensed LEGO product, developed by POWER A.
sad news though: i have been looking into this shit, and it doesn’t seem like it can be bought in canada. then again, for those of us thinking of doing some across the border shopping this holiday season, it’s yet another reason.
