BROOKLYN, N.Y. — CTA Digital recently
introduced a spate of new gaming
accessories, including items for
the PlayStation3 and Wii.
The Assault Rifle for the PS3 (PS3-
SRG) is designed for use with Call
of Duty: Modern Warfare, along
with most other first-person shooter
games. It’s said to contain every button
featured on the OEM Sony PS3
controller, including clickable thumb
sticks. It also has a built-in speaker
and uses the trigger as the R1 button.
Suggested retail is $64.99. It will be
available in August.
Also new for the PS3 are two-inone
and four-in-one charging docks,
meant for use with the Move Move
motion controller and Navigation
controller. Pricing and availability
were not given at press time.
For the Wii, CTA took the wraps off
two products: an inflatable race cart
and a rowing accessory.
The Inflatable Race Kart ($39.99),
which measures 47 inches by 28 inches,
features a hard plastic steering
wheel that is connected to a dashboard
housing the Wii remote. Up to
300 pounds can be supported on the
soft seat, CTA said, and it inflates
with any air pump via the air-valves
on the sides.
The Kart is currently available.
The Rowing Machine Wii accessory
is meant for use with such games
as Wii Fit Plus, Wii Sports Resort, Jillian
Michaels Fitness, and Ultimatum
2009 and 2010. The non-electric Rowing
Machine holds the Wii remote in a
cradle attached to the pull bar. Users
are able to increase or decrease the
resistance of their workouts by adjusting
the tension knob, CTA said,
and the base of the Rowing Machine
has foot pedals with Velcro straps.
It’s currently available for $34.99.
