News: Will Wii users make an ‘Executive Decision’ on MP5s?

This story may be old news to some of you, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it, and it seems to be gaining momentum with the lead-up to next week’s E3. Chinese manufacturer Komodo is set to release The Rapid Shot, after showcasing it at E3: a scale version of the Heckler & Koch MP5 (favoured with suppressor by pre-tubby Steven Seagal in the film Executive Decision as depicted in the thumbnail) as a shooter peripheral for the Nintendo Wii.

It’s a bold move for the manufacturer, which has already released a shotgun attachment, considering the more family-friendly specs of the Wii . Sporting a USB rechargeable battery, it manages to combine the Wii-mote, nunchuk and Wii-motion plus, all into the one device, WITH added rumbling hit recognition support.

The Wii’s older fan-base has been crying out for mature content. Could this lead to more on-the-rails shooters? Will peripherals like this sate them, or become fodder for rabble-rousers, focused on its resemblance to the actual weapon and, in turn, speak out on the so called ‘evils’ of gaming? Only time will tell…

    yep… it was like they couldnt decide wether to make it a gun or a controller… the gameplay was crap because you ended up aiming with the sticks out of instinct, oh and being left handed it was just plain annoying to have to aim with my right hand to use the movement stick.
