Wii-style controller to hit PS2

The first six titles will be available at retail in time for Christmas for 29.99.

The games – which include Realplay Tennis, Realplay Pool, Realplay Golf, Realplay Racing, Realplay Bowling and Realplay Puzzlesphere – are made for use with wireless controllers that emulate tennis rackets, pool cues, golf clubs and steering wheels, amongst others.

The motion-sensing technology used in the peripherals is currently still in development, having recently attracted 7.6 million in venture capital funding.

In2Games will be hoping to tap into the huge popularity of existing wireless gaming controllers such as that of Nintendo’s Wii.

The Realplay range of games is aimed squarely at those PS2 owners who want to play wireless motion-sensing games without needing to splash out on a new console,” said Elliott Myers, CEO of In2Games.

Each peripheral is as accurate as any video gaming technology out there at the moment, but on an entirely new format. The games are fun, challenging and highly addictive, and the wireless peripherals offer the best way of controlling games on what will be this Christmas’ most popular mainstream console.”
