Streetcar GO! controller lets you drive your own Shinkansen
We're not exactly sure how compelling a train-controlling video game would be, particularly one that allows you to control the shinkansen (high-speed train) from Hakata Station to Osaka while rolling down the tracks at (virtual) speeds of up to 300km/h (186mph). But then again, we're not sure that the Japanese could come up with a video game that would surprise us anymore, particularly after "Cooking Mama." From what we can tell, our gaming friends in Japan have just released a special controller for this train simulation game, "Streetcar GO!" for ¥6,090 ($52) -- apparently the Wiimote just didn't cut it as a proxy for a train's gear shift.
