  1. Oh, there were. PS3 had the GunCon 3, Top Shot Elite and the Top Shot Fearmaster. And no, the Move is in most cases just a gyro controller and the systems pays very little attention to the tracked light bulb (for most gun games that is). The Switch gun game/cradles use the gyro functionality.
  2. As for cameras inside the gun: This has been done! Also there is the upcoming Sinden light gun, which sees the screen as a trapezoid. Monitoring a trapezoid is of course more reliable than just seeing two dots. But the Wii is not the be all and end all of IR light reference guns... there were plenty of systems that used trapezoids too and thus were more reliable than the Wii. The Wii is a very unfair benchmark for two dot IR light reference guns by the way...
  3. Well, there are HD TV compatible Zappers... Also Alexsey used one to play on a Raspberry Pi. So I would guess on a rooted Switch running Android this should be possible (not in the official online NES app of course).
  4. ^^ well they did but it sank unfortunately. It is/was called "Sure Shot HD" but sadly almost no major companies supported it, and just few games were released. It's really good actually.
  5. The display is still grainy and the tracking is not as precise as anything using light house technology.
  6. I haven't yet! Honestly I am skeptical^^ I guess time will tell, but I don't see anything ever going to be as precise/accurate as raster based scanning. I indeed play the latter two. I guess with a setup < 2K USD it doesn't challenge classical light gun gaming as it's freaking hard to see the sights on older/cheaper goggles.
  7. You mean that ironic, but joking aside if Jakks Pacific ever recognizes the truth that this technology is still relevant today and would make some light gun plug and plays based on it they would earn a pile of money.
  8. While I understand your desire, your are not 100 % correct, Sir. There are IR reference light system based light guns (Wii like) for Xbox and PS2. Furthermore NES games can be patched to account for the screen lag of LCD displays which allows them to work with cheap guns which lack a frequency filter.
  9. Salut Mid December I finally received the PDP Mars light gun system and I played it a lot since then. I even released a full review: Very unfortunately the system wasn't able to hold it's promises. I write here because I would love to hear what you think will be the future of light gun gaming? I guess laser assisted systems will never make the cut, because they are too expensive and too sophisticated. As PDP showed us low price versions of it will lack the necessary quality. I have high hopes for Andy's Sinden light gun, but I don't know anybody (besides Andy) with first hand experiences... Personally I would love to see IR reference light system guns gaining back some attention. The Guncon 3 was great and the Ultimarc products still are. But their reputation was permanently damaged by shitty products (to which I count the Nintendo Wii).
  10. It arrived 18th December^^ Aaaaand I actually have an opinion on it:
  11. It's 19th november and I am still waiting for mine... they fucked up half of the deliveries it seems :S Many victims on facebook posted on the MARS site...
  12. You could take a look at Seeed Studio. They are cheap but don't have a terrible working condition reputation. And then you could try to make a shout out for other interest people. Making 5 of these is approximately equally expensive as making one. Therefore the cost of a single cart, would be five times cheaper if you managed to distribute the remaining four.
  13. It depends on where you print it (India/China/Europe/US) and how many of them you take (law of scale)
  14. Are you aware of the NESLCDMOD project? You can play many NES light gun games on modern TVs using patched ROM files.
  15. Thank you very much, but his is the Commodore 64 version 😃 For others: Meanwhile I have a unit, but I am not sure whether it works, as I didn't have the time to test yet.
