Sure, it's no Wiimote
or caramelized Xbox controller
, but the NERF Wireless Controller could definitely hold its own in a gamepad brawl. Designed by Pelican and Hasbro, this cushioned PlayStation 2 controller sports "soft, durable foam," Pelican's "Smart Play" technology, wireless connectivity, and a sweet NERF logo for extra bragging rights. The company claims it can withstand "squeezing, throwing, twisting and spiking," and while its currently only available for Sony's soon-to-be-replaced PS2, other platforms shouldn't be too far behind. So if you aren't exactly ready (read: too broke) to pull the trigger on a new console
(or HD DVD attachment
) come November, this $29.99 flingable controller could help alleviate the new launch envy.
