dreamGEAR Launches Wii Soft Sports Accessory Kit


Up and coming videogame accessory company dreamGEAR has now launched a Soft Sports Kit for the Wii. Designed to bring added realism to games like Wii Sports, the Soft Sports Kit features three snap-on foam extensions that turn the Wii Remote into a baseball bat, golf club and tennis racket. The kit is available now at a very affordable $24.99, at least that’s what the press release says. According to the dreamGEAR website listing it’s $34.99, but the product page also says the kit comes with a cooling fan, which isn’t mentioned in the press release either. So maybe the fan has been removed to drop the price point, I don’t know.

“The authentic shape and feel of the racket, bat and golf club, combined with the soft foam, brings an unparalleled level of realism and safety to virtual sports,” says dreamGEAR co-founder Richard Weston. “We wanted to help gamers more clearly envision themselves within the context of the game, while simultaneously offering an alternative to hard plastic Wii remote extensions that might injure other players or damage property. The Soft Sports Kit accomplishes both goals.”

Be sure to browse around more of the dreamGEAR website too, there are a ton of other nifty looking game gadgets that could make for cool gifts this holiday season.
