Wii Afterglow Controller

#1 Posted by JJWeatherman (14483 posts) -

So I was browsing Gamestop and came across this sweet afterglow Wiimote. Usually I would never buy a 3rd party controller, but this one looks pretty sweet. 


I bet they look dumb during the day, but oh man in the dark they look awesome. 
 
Does anyone own one of these? Or maybe some other sweet 3rd party controller?

I hate to burst your bubble, but I certainly wouldn't buy one.

The only 3rd party controller I have ever owned is the 360 MW2 controller, but that hardly qualifies as sweet.  The coolest one is prob the chainsaw RE4 controllers.  I totally would've gotten one back in the day but I never saw them for sale anywhere.

I actually would like it without the lights. I have issues with bright lights though.

I'd rather have a glow in the dark grip/sheath.

Nope.

@JJWeatherman:  It's just not as cool as I was expecting before I saw the picture. It'd probably be pretty fun to use in the dark, though.

My brother has the 360 one.  He thinks it's OK.

Oh man, I didn't even realize there was a 360 version. 
 
I wonder how the buttons on these are. Usually 3rd party controllers don't have the best "feel". Then again, the controller I got brand new with my 360 S has sticky buttons. I guess it's unavoidable.
