This month Time Crisis 4 comes out with the GunCon 3 (except in orange outside of Japan) for a hefty price tag of ninety bucks. I played around with Time Crisis 4 and the new first person shooting mode is fantastic, but it’s hard to justify spending so much for a single accessory. It’s not like Namco Bandai has anymore light gun games at the arcade they can port either. So I asked the Time Crisis 4 team if they have any future plans for the Guncon 3 and they responded with “we are discussing plans third party developers.”
What about bringing light gun games like Point Blank to the Wii? After I asked the question two members of the team laughed and one said, “we’re thinking about it. Plans are up in the air now.”
Update: Speaking of the GunCon 3 the Playstation.blog has an article explaining the design of the controller including some prototype shots of a shotgun like design. Quite interesting and relevant to this piece.
