Remote Pistol for Nintendo® WiiTM Voted Best Accessory for 2009 by ABC Affiliate News10.net


Fremont, Calif., (January, 2010) - News10.net, an online affiliate of ABC News, has announced that Penguin United's CrossFire Remote Pistol for Nintendo Wii has been voted by gamers as the best third-party accessory for 2009.

The annual award is based on gamer participation and includes an array of categories and genres such as Best Fighting Game (Dissidia Final Fantasy), Best Shooting Game (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare), Best Racing Game (Gran Turismo) and more. The winners of the 2009 Gamers Choice Awards were announced January 19, 2010 and included Best Third-Party Accessory winner Penguin United for its Crossfire Remote Pistol.

"We were thrilled when we heard that the CrossFire was voted by gamers as their favorite third-party accessory," stated Richard Huang. "The CrossFire has received an incredible amount of critical praise in the media and from gamers. Likewise, the feedback we've received at trade shows like CES and E3 has been extremely encouraging."

The CrossFire is the first and only available gun for Nintendo Wii that has the remote already integrated into the gun's design. Instead of making just another plastic shell for housing the Wii remote, Penguin has actually designed the Crossfire with the remote already built in. Accordingly, the A and B buttons and D-Pad have been repositioned for easy access and functionality. The CrossFire offers all the benefits of a Wii remote as well as providing a true gun experience.
