Wii Bowling Ball Guarantees Living Room Carnage

Over the years, the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo has witnessed numerous introductions of Nintendo consoles and related peripherals (notably, the debut of the Wii in 2004). This year's convention, held in early June, was no different, according to OhGizmo!, with the unveiling of an accessory for one of the Wii's oldest and most popular titles, 'Wii Sports.'

CTA Digital has released a new Wii bowling ball. This shouldn't come as a surprise given the long history of ridiculous, worthless, and sometimes-remarkably-ahead-of-their-time peripherals for Nintendo systems (remember the Power Glove?). The ball splits in half to reveal storage space for the Wiimote, and, according to CTA, enables players to "mimic all the critical motions." We're anxiously awaiting the inevitable YouTube videos of flat-screen destruction.

OhGizmo! doesn't reveal any price details, but, with Nintendo's history of devoted followers who'll purchase anything emblazoned with its name (some of us being among them), you know somebody is bound to give it a roll. [From: OhGizmo!]
