Nintendo Famicom Power Glove

Ah, yes, the infamous Power Glove. The peripheral that promised Wii-like controls for the NES/Famicom and delivered, well, something else entirely; something that turned the best game into a frustrating and nigh on unplayable mess. Why would you want one? Because you are a collector I suppose and should thus care for this excellently preserved and fully boxed Famicom Power Glove. Seller ships worldwide. Oh, and it does look so utterly futuristic, doesn't it?

  1. Wii was right, his grandfather couldn't really keep up with that. And jokes aside, even watching "The Wizard" as a child never got me in the mood to want one of this gloves. Guess why...

  2. Hmm, let me take a wild guess... You didn't love the film and though the Power Glove was stupid. That's it, isn't? Say yes, say yes!

  5. I gave one of these Power Gloves to my Proctologist. So it's finally getting some good use. Personally I find it to just be a big pain in the ass.

  7. Ah man, I HATED that thing as a kid! On the rare occasions it would actually work right, it was like magic. I think I had the motion detecting working completely properly with 1942 or 1943. Other than that it was completely frustrating. The keypad wasn't very durable either. At least the model I had. A friend of mine had a later model that had shorter fingers on the glove.

  8. So, it did at times work... Never thought the Power Glove was capable of such wonders. More so when it came to shmups.
