Get gaming accessories to play with friends

Unless you purchased an upgraded bundle, today's game consoles are bare-bones packages. For instance, usually they include only one controller. But a lot of the fun includes playing with friends and talking smack. Multiplayer games generally allow up to four players and gamepads (the PS3, however, can handle seven controllers). Your old PS2 or Xbox controllers won't cut it with the new systems, so expect to pay upward of $50 for an extra controller, price depending on the features (wireless, fan cooled, and so on) and manufacturer. To knock a friend's head off in Wii Sports (packaged with the system) boxing, an extra gamepad is a must. The Wii's unique controller comes in two parts: one Wiimote ($40) plus one nunchuk ($20). Also, keep your old GameCube controllers. The Wii supports all GameCube games, and the controller can also be used with Wii's Virtual Console offerings.
