8 Fictional Videogame Products We Would Totally Buy IRL

Wired: Videogames are full of gadgets, weapons, powers and all-around awesome stuff that we wish existed in real life. Some of these powers can't be bought and sold: You can't go to Wal-Mart and buy the Master Sword. But in some game worlds, consumerism rules.

The Grand Theft Auto games in particular are notorious for their in-game advertisements for fictional products. Every billboard and radio wave is home to an advertisement shilling some parody version of a real-world product. To be sure, when Grand Theft Auto V launches this fall, it will bring with it a whole new multitude of wonderfully inappropriate fictional product advertisements.

But it's not just GTA. Here are eight products from a variety of games that, were they available to purchase in real life, we'd shell out for. (Culture)
