All of us've seen some pretty wild Wiimote mods in our day, but this control rig for the Xbox 360 definitely springs into the upper echelons of Wii-hackdom
I want one! Hope Microsoft or a third party is watching! Someone should post this on the MS Xbox forum!
That guy is owning everyone... Just goes to show how much the Wii's IR rocks...
Cool, but still way to hard to make one yourself :P
the only problem i saw was that he couldn't look up or down. other than that it was pretty cool.
Truly something to behold. I've always said that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 are going to need something besides graphics to up the ante, since their graphical power is already nearly optimized. Is Nintendo's innovation truly the future for all major platforms? This could be a glimpse of things to come.
Certainly that's an impressive feat, but I'd be willing to bet money that both Sony and Microsoft are behind the scenes looking a controller possibilities that mimic the way the Wii controllers operate and one that would be a hellavu lot simpler to implement. They'd be fools not to. If either company manages to best the wii controller (and it wouldn't be hard since the wii version is a 1.0 product) and avoid patent/trademark infringement, it will take away any hope the Wii has of garnering any kind of 3rd part FPS support...
It can be done under XNA also with the right driver for a BT USB stick in the 360 I bet.
So just wait, Wii60 will be there in some way to use
Holy cow if this, by any chance means that i will get to play Re5 with a WiiMote. i will explode!! BTW i would pay up to $200 for a proper 1st or 3rd party app for this. if the pc guys think mouse and keyboard is best for fps's they really need try playing a good shooter on the wii (Re4!)
