Nintendo's Shameful, Inflatable Horse-Riding Wii Controller (http://kotaku.com/5334428/nintendos-shameful-inflatable-horse+riding-wii-controller)


http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/9/2009/08/504x_ridingshame.jpg

Read that headline one more time. Then look at this picture. And prepare yourself for the eventuality that no, this is not a joke (http://kotaku.com/tag/this-is-not-a-joke/), meaning yes, Nintendo actually patented an inflatable horse-riding peripheral for the Wii (http://kotaku.com/tag/wii/).

It's a small, inflatable cushion with a dock for the Wii Remote. So that when you rock/bounce the horse, the controller is able to register the movement. You are then supposed to hold the nunchuk as you would a horse's reins. If it were a horse. We'd imagine it could just a easily simulate the riding of a donkey, camel, llama, alpaca or Asian elephant.


Or if those animals aren't your style, maybe you'd be more interested in riding some of the examples Nintendo themselves provide in the actual patent, like bulls, burros, dolphins, whales, dragons, griffons, unicorns and giant eagles.
Griffons? Awesome.

man nintendo used to be my favorite (zelda is still my favorite game frachise), but theyve just gone wacko with stuff, the motion controller stuff was cool (and influenced certain others to get into that game) but the family and peripheral aspect just went out of hand....really hope they reshape this console or make the next console something better cause my wii just sits there waiting for the next mario, metroid, and zelda (havent even played it now that my xbox is broken)

I agree, they have gone to far with all the differnt remotes you can sit on and stuff. They try to make it seem like its good exersize for you. Trying to make more stuff to sell i guess.

Things like this kind of make you wonder who comes up with these ideas, then once it's been thought of who approves it.

Imagine pitching this idea to your boss and giving an example of how it would work.

The man's face in Fig. 4 looks like he's having a wonderful time. . . . .

It also looks like he's retarded.


If this game makes this man look like he's having a wonderful time, then maybe it will appeal to all retards. Have fun with your imaginary horse retard.

A week after this is launched I might search Youtube to see what person created their own porno game to use this controller with. Is it just me or is Nintendo reaching for idea's lately? No? Maybe they've gone back to their roots of strange Japanese sex fetishes...

What the hell do you mean "grew up with", Nintendo was always making lousy peripherals for their consoles. They just skipped it with the gamecube :\.

But..

Uhm, how old are you? Anyone over the age of 14 would FULLY understand why people are shocked they can get away with it. Again, as mentioned above, the Happy PotI MEAN...Harry Potter vibrating broomstick toy thing, whatever it's called.

But it doesnt vibrate or anything - are people annoyed that its jut beetween there legs? if so why arent they annoyed at bicycles ? its jsut a blow up thingy that you put the wii remote in...i really dont see the problems except for the fact its stupid .

The beastiality side missions look like they have an intuitive control scheme.

You simply stick the Wii mote up your arse (lube not provided), wait for any family members to either leave or join in and away you go!

ExtremeRugburn

Well I think Nintendo is just trying to cater more and more towards adults, since wii fit was so popular they have decided to branch off into adult gaming experiences and this appears to be one of their prototypes.

Damn Nintendo. I'd pretty much lost all hope for you guys with the Wii, but now you just keep introducing trash after trash as peripherals. Time to stop this motion sensing nonsense and move into the next generation please.

I know this is sarcasm but it's a correct statement. Everyone WILL buy that shit. The amount of people who buy every new Nintendo product that comes out is staggering. Even more so is the fact that most of these people use the stuff like twice and never touch it again. Yet they still buy every single piece of crap that gets shoveled in their direction. I'm a consumer whore and even THIS depresses me.

First a Vitality Sensor, now this. This is why I've been playing my 360 more than my Wii lately: there aren't many good games for it. Super Smash Bros Brawl, Super Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart Wii, Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3...that's pretty much it.
