Thrustmaster cuts wire from Wiimote to Nunchuk

Thrustmaster T-Nchuk Wireless Adapter NWMost people would prefer wireless gear to similar wired gear. I can think of a few exceptions to that though, namely PC gaming gear like keyboards and mice. However, when it comes to console gaming wireless is where it’s at.

Take the Nintendo Wii, the Wiimote is wireless so what’s with the wire from the Nunchuk to the Wiimote? I’m not alone in wondering that and Thrustmaster has announced a solution to the problem called the T-Nchuk Wireless Adapter NW.

Thrustmaster WiiMote cradle & charging station
Looks like Thrustmaster is involved in all things Wii these days. The latest are these two cradles/chargers. T-Charge One NW and T-Charge Duo NW will help you keep your Wiimotes orderly rather then just having them lay around.

The NW will hold your Nunchuck, gamepad and Wiimote. It will also charge your WiiMote when it’s plugged into the console vis the USB port. It comes with rechargeable batteries for the Wiimote. Duo NW will hold only two WiiMotes, leaving your Nunchuck and gamepad out in the cold. Both will be available in April. T-Charge One NW will cost about $26 and the Duo NW is supposed to be just a tad more.

Thrustmaster T-GoKart wheel for Mario Kart

Thrustmaster T-GoKart wheel for Mario Kart
Mario Kart has not yet been released, but already there is at least one alternative that’s better then the steering wheel that comes with the game. Thrustmaster has apparently branched out from the joystick business and they are now selling the T-GoKart NW steering wheel accessory for the Wii.

First, it looks much cooler then the original that comes with Mario Kart. Plus, the T-GoKart has a rubber grip and strategically positions the Wiimote so that you can access the buttons easily while your hands are at the ‘10 and 2′ positions. It also has holes on both sides so you can use the Wiimote for pointing while it’s in the wheel or for connecting the Nunchuck controller when needed. You can get it in April for about $10. Let’s-a-go!
