The PC Wiimote – Actually, It’s Called The Stix

The Stix 400 - Look Familiar?The Pcmote might have been a perfectly good name, but Stix is the name of the motion sensing, all singing all dancing Wiimote copy clone styled remote for the PC. OK, so the reason most gamers prefer their PC is because they aren’t limited in their controls in the same way as they would be with a games console. But, there is still something to be said for the originality of the Wiimote for the Nintendo Wii.

The Stix does look a little different, although we’re not entirely convinced it looks or acts differently enough to warrant not getting sued by Nintendo. The Stix 400 is the top end of the range and includes touch screen controls as well as motion sensing to give a completely unique method of playing games.

There’s not much information abound, in all honesty. There’s no list of the free online or Games for Windows games that will be compatible, no pricing, and no details of a release date, or where it will be released. But, apart from that, it all looks good. We’re still not convinced that your average World of Warcraft addict is going to be particularly interested though.
