Sick of showing up for GH gigs with the same ol' axe as everyone else? Stand out in the crowd with a Custom-Painted Guitar Hero Guitar from Colorware ($100 and up send-in, $200 and up new). Available in Xbox 360, Wii, and PS3 variations, you can customize nearly every part of the guitar, and with a bevy of colors to choose from, you're sure to find a scheme that matches your style.
If you can't get enough animal-hunting action at the local pub, bring the excitement home with Big Buck Hunter Safari ($4875). This all-new hunting adventure pits you against the wildlife of Africa, including lions, rhinos, elephants, panthers, and zebras. The game features new dual pump-action shotguns, four player head-to-head competition, over 400 authentic 3D hunting scenes, and 15 new bonus rounds. [via]
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.
