Wii Table Tennis Paddle
by Mark R
If you have a Wii, then you know how many cheap peripherals there are available for it.
After all, look at the steering wheel for Mario Kart Wii. All it is just a circular piece of plastic, with a trigger.
However, this paddle accessory from some unnamed Chinese manufacturer is probably one of the coolest I have seen. It isn’t just the overly priced piece of plastic that sticks onto a Wiimote, but it is a Wiimote, with all of the necessary buttons. It even comes with a Motion Plus inside.
This is quite good, as the Wii has several games that are based on Table Tennis. There is one on Mario Party 8 that I play, and using the Wiimote as a paddle isn’t the same. This one actually feels like a paddle.
It looks like it is possible to attach a Nunchuck to the bottom of this, but I don’t think that you will find a Nunchuk that has a color that matches.
I don’t have any word on when this particular accessory for the Wii will be coming to America, but I would think it would be soon. I don’t know if there is any table tennis game coming out during the holidays, but this would make a terrific stocking stuffer for Wii-lovers.
