Wiimote, Nunchuck connection severed


If I were forced to pick one thing I didn’t like about the Wii, other than it being a glorified GameCube, would have to be the wired Nunchuck. Let’s face it, we live in a wireless world and why shouldn’t that apply to everything else in life? I flail around when I box and many time have I lost control of the damn thing because it’s tethered to the Wiimote. Thank the tech gods for Nyko, purveyors of all that is game console accessories. I wish they’d bring back that nacho heater thing, but alas, it cannot be done. So in return they’ve decided to release a wireless Nunchuck for the ever-lovable Wii. A receiver plugs into the normal jack on the Wiimote and will thusly communicate over a 2.4 GHz band. More details at CES.
