As much as we love bowling on the Wii, it only makes sense that we're hot for this Brunswick Wii Bowling Bag ($45). The stylishly ironic bag, which looks like a traditional bowling ball bag, has padded compartments designed to carry the Wii console, cords, games, sensor bar, Wii remote, Nunchuk controller, and more. Game on. [Thanks, Dennis]
Whether you're a NASCAR driver or just really into racing games, the Virtual GT Personal Racing Simulator ($17,000-$22,500) puts you in the action like nothing else. Powered by a high performance gaming computer, pre-loaded with a library of race simulation software, the GT also offers a built-in loudspeaker system, four vibration transducers for a more realistic experience, a form-fitting MasterCraft racing seat, a force-feedback steering wheel, and electronic controls. Available with a wide variety of monitor options, it's the closest thing we've found yet to strapping in a real car and heading out onto the track.
The simple force-feedback of your controller not real enough for you? The FPS Vest ($169) lets you take your first-person shooter experience to the next level with eight active zones that simulate the direction and forces of bullet fire, crushing explosions, and finger taps as they occur in the game. It comes with two PC games designed to show off the vest, letting you jump right into the action.
Get ready for Gran Turismo on the Playstation 3 with the Logitech Driving Force GT Wheel ($150; May 2008). Co-developed by Logitech and Polyphony Digital, the wheel features powerful force feedback which simulates understeer, oversteer, and traction loss, an adjustment dial for on-the-fly control of brake bias, traction and damper settings, full-size gas and brake pedals, a sequential stick shift and wheel-mounted shifter paddles. Perfect for the new interior dash view.
Have an NES, a penchant for retro gaming, and way too much money? Then get in on the bidding for this Nintendo World Championships 1990 Gold Cartridge (currently $15,000). Nicknamed "the holy grail of video game collecting," only 26 of the cartridges were made, and only 12 are known to have survived the years. For more of the story, visit the Wikipedia page, but keep in mind, there are probably better things to spend your money on. Like a new car. [via]
