222w ago - Video game accessories maker CTA Digital introduced their new Sniper Rifle Gun for Wii, which includes a removable stock and barrel, magazine tube, sniper scope and stand.

CTA says the Wii Sniper Rifle Gun is compatible with Medal of Honor: Heroes 2, Medal of Honor: Vanguard, Resident Evil 4, Ghost Squad, and Ultimate Duck Hunting.

Those interested can pre-order the Wii Sniper Rifle Gun through Amazon for $39.99, with the release scheduled for January 20, 2010.

Welcome back from the holidays, Zipper fans! As we mentioned before we went on break, today is the day that our 100% free and open MAG Beta program kicks off on the PlayStation Network!
