Sonic the Hedgehog inductive Wii Remote charger from Mad Catz

Dec 28, 2010

One of the more popular characters in the world of gaming is the classic Sonic the Hedgehog from Sega. Sonic has been around for a long time a now and has been in games on multiple consoles. This is the first time I have seen the blue guy on a gaming accessory though.

Mad Catz has put a Sonic figure on an inductive charger for a pair of Wii remotes and judging by the look on Sonic's face, you better not try and put more than two remotes on there. The plastic Sonic figure is 6-inches tall and the thing is shipping already in limited numbers.

The cool charger is part of the 20th anniversary of Sonic. The charger should be able to be found online and in stores and the little gadget will sell for about $50 each. The rechargeable battery packs inside the remotes are good for 15 hours of gaming per charge and you only have to sit them on the charge stand to juice them back up.
