The Wii can now if not already be considered the the master of being a mostly all accessories add on console. Sorry if I sound a bit harsh, but for the longest time Nintendo has been able to get away with offering hardware add-on(s) to all of itâ€™s consoles and nickel and dime itâ€™s loyal fanbase. Some good but mostly not needed to have fun on a Nintendo system. Thrustmaster is offering a new peripheral for all of the skateboarding and snowboarding games on and coming soon to the Wii. Hit the break for the presser.
Here is the next best thing to actually snowboarding in real life, itâ€™s the T-Freestyle NW.

With the T-Freestyle NW (patent pending), now more than ever before, itâ€™s more fun and intuitive for gamers to land perfect maneuvers and link up slides from one rail to another. Wiiâ„¢ snowboarding and skateboarding gamers can use the T-Freestyle NW to execute freestyle tricks and to control their boarding runs with the same spirit of â€œfreedomâ€ and the sensation of â€œno limitâ€ that makes these sports so popular.
