And try’s to sell it in an even lamer commercial:
I bet that guy really operates like a boss… he’s probably fresh back on leave from the theater.
The lame thing about this controller is that you are basically just holding an over sized bulky PS3 dualshock 3 wireless controller in the shape of a gun, with a trigger to pull to “shoot” instead of pushing a button.
If my commentary didn’t discourage you from this weak excuse for a game gun, you can pre-order it on Amazon for $65 – HERE
Trying to scrounge up some funds for that new death star I imagine.

Looks like it could be alright. Nice and topical too considering the recent female Russian spy (Anna Chapman) who was recently busted in New York.
Good choice of handgun with the compact glock (as seen on the movie website):
I can’t decide if Angelina Jolie looks better with Blond hair or not.
It’s in theaters now.

A few things I find very interesting about this supperssor and Beretta 92:
- The suppressor snaps on as opposed to the other conventional spring loaded quick attachment, or the standard thread on.
- There are new sights built into the suppressor. Damn good idea considering the factory sights on pistols are blocked by the hight of most cans.
- The Beretta has a custom slide lock on it to keep the slide from cycling and ejecting the spent shell casing (“no evidence” for assassins)
Autoweapons.com actually has one of these currently for sale – HERE (Price unknown, you apparently need to email them to find it out)

TRENTON, N.J. - New Jersey will hold its first bear hunt in five years this December to thin a growing black bear population that wildlife biologists say is increasingly coming into contact with suburban New Yorkers.
Wildlife officials will issue as many as 10,000 hunting permits, anticipating a kill of 500 to 750 black bears out of an estimated population of 3,400. A similar hunt in 2005 killed 297 black bears, down from 328 killed during a hunt in 2003.

I know a good idea for an episode of Jersey Shore when I see one. Can you imagine arming all of them with rifles and telling them “Go shoot some bears”?
Edmonton, Alberta - Two Edmonton artists are shocked that part of their internationally renowned work, The Gun Sculpture, was subject to censorship at a United Nations exhibition in Vienna this summer after pressure from the Chinese delegation.
The 4.5-tonne sculpture, welded together from deactivated guns, landmines and ammunition, has been shown in many countries, including at UN headquarters in New York in 2001, and has never run into problems, said artist Sandra Bromley, who built the sculpture with Wallis Kendal.
And cue the deep “purpose” statement…. now:
The sculpture — which includes 7,000 small arms, all of which were used in conflicts around the world — is a statement about the history of guns. The victims’ photos are designed to “reflect the impact of guns, the human loss,” she said.
Actually the meaning of this does make a lot more sense than lots of the meanings that artists normally have.

Looks like the Borg cube, but with guns! I need to get some large scale gun art such as that for decoration.
