Wireless Wii FightStick announced for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars

MadCatz to release licenced wireless FightStick peripheral for Nintento Wii

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is coming to North American on January 26th, and to commemorate the release (and provide Wii owners with a competent control scheme) MadCatz has announced their latest licensed FightStick peripheral, the first for the Nintendo Wii.

The stick is expected to debut at CES 2010 in Las Vegas this week and functions almost identically to its PS3 and Xbox 360 brethren. In addition to standard features like the dual-speed turbo function, eight-button arcade configurations and an integrated D-Pad the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Arcade FightStick will also be the first wireless FightStick (it plugs into the WiiMote.) Other Wii-specific additions include a locking switch, Wii Home button, and stick switch that alternates between right- or left-sided playing styles.

Of course, the new FightStick isn't intended solely for Tatsunoko players and will be sold separately from the game. "Many Wii owners are already enjoying Capcom fighting games via the Virtual Console facility," said Capcom VP of Business Development & Strategic Planning Christian Svensson. "With the launch of Tatsunoko VS. Capcom, we thought it important to give our fan base the opportunity to play with the Arcade FightStick."

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
