There are some things we look at and immediately recognize as weird experiments doomed to fail, or overpriced products with no real value, or even shoddy implementations of admittedly impressive ideas. Unfortunately, there’s an abundance of those things in the video games industry, which has seen a long, long list of such products enter the market across the years. In this feature, we’ll be taking a look at 14 such products.
CTA DIGITAL 6-IN-1 SPORTS PACK
The early 2010s saw Sony and PlayStation buying into the whole motion gaming fad, thanks to the success of the Wii. With the advent of the Move controller, then, came some pretty weird accessories as well. Among these were CTA Packs, which were essentially attachments for your move controller to… to give them the shape of whatever equipment you were holding in the motion controlled sports games you were playing. We all like to be immersed in our games, but perhaps this is taking it a bit too far. You could always just tape your Move controller to your table tennis bat and save yourself some money.
